Wow! I was impressed by this one! Great flavor, good hoppiness without it being overpowering, and nice light texture. Now THIS is what a lighter pilsener should be like!

I’m confused by the name game on the can. Beer is a bit of a let down. Almost lifeless in its hopping & the finish lacks that pilsner smack to the mouth that I enjoy. Feels like this can is old, sitting in boats & warehouses & shelves while other more exciting beer is being brewed elsewhere.

Blonde pale légčrement dorée, beaucoup de bulle, léger col de mousse blanche. Nez de malts et de miel. Bouche maltée, légčrement houblonnée, épicée. Gentille amertume, bien sucrée. Buvable sans plus...

Golden clear. Minimal and brief head. Light floral and grass aroma. Bitterness is nearly nice. Thin and maybe oily texture. Does it finish at all?

mariuszek (81) - Gdynia, POLAND - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours golden with small white head. Nice grassy hops, malt and skunk(green bottle) in aroma. Taste too malty sweet, low bitterness, thin shade of hops. Due to its maltiness quite heavy to drink. Really, years ago it was much better!

12pz bottle (North American) in snifter. Golden hue nice head skunky aroma. Good skunky lager. Not near as good as I remember it in Poland (room temp from grocery store). But I might have been really thirsty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dfroms (348) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Tap at Brooklyn Beet Co. in Bay Ridge. Pours a clear orange gold with small head. Aroma is earthy and grassy hops and crackery malts, with an unusually fruity profile too: something like roasted apple and honey. Obviously fresh; I imagine this beer is often consumed past its prime from bottles. Taste is crisp, mildly sweet grain with earthy and spicy finish, lightly herbal. Very pleasant.

FireGlider (50) - CROATIA - NOV 28, 2014
0.5 bottle beer, no foam, clear golden color. If I wanted to show someone how pilsner taste like i would give then Budweiser. You taste the hops but there is no bitterness. Very pleasant beer to drink.

camoes (210) - PORTUGAL - NOV 26, 2014
Review based on the BJCP2008 (style 2B - Bohemian pilsner). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: mild sweet and grainy aroma with some DMS. no floral hop aromas. APPEARANCE: gold color and translucent. thin creamy white head with average retention. TASTE: mild sweet grainy flavour. medium-low bitterness with a medium-dry finish. PALATE: medium-thin body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: a bland bohemian pilsner. where are the Saaz hops? NOTE: the label says "Czech Imported Lager" wich we are inclined to believe this is a special batch without the hops. We have in memory that this beer is more hop intensive than this drinked example.
