This is a good solid pilsener. I would say better than Plzeňský Prazdroj. My rating is based on many bottles of this. Watch out for the green bottle. It will give you various skunky flavors if not fresh an kept in the dark, (you never know when you buy it). If you get a good bottle this is the best everyday lager you can find. If you get a bad one, keep looking for a fresher bottle. You will be rewarded with a mighty fine pilsener. US Budweiser isn’t even close. na vaše zdraví.

Hiero (161) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Hay flavor and hops dominate the taste. Oily body and a beautiful color. Everything is on the front end as it finishes clean and dry.

Pours golden yellow, slight hazy and with a white head. Aroma is classic pilsener malt with a corn note. Flavour is soft malty, slight sweet with a good bitterness into the finish.

12 oz bottle best by 11/23/15.
Clear, brilliant golden, lively carbonation, creamy white head, spotty lace.
Aroma is bready malts and spicy hops.
Flavor is similar, sweet bready malts and mildly spicy hops. Less hoppy than Urquell, but still nice.

Tognetta (294) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUN 25, 2015
Amarelo vivo, espuma branca de pouca duraçăo. Aroma herbal, gramíneas, média intensidade. Paladar de amargor médio, muito fácil de beber. Aftertaste intensifica um pouco do amargor, mas sem exageros. Referęncia de estilo.

Icedwarf (689) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2015
Helder geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is vlak, licht bitter hoppig en komt wat waterig over. Stelt teleur.

ERB92 (507) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2015
Honey, grass and a hint of malt and floral hops in the aroma. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Light to medium body with a average to soft carbonation. Overall an OK Pilsener, not interesting in any way, but slightly above average.
