OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Czechvar version. A - Pours a brilliantly clear golden brass color with 1 1.5 finger white head that melts into nothing. S - Sweet grain, apple, mild grassy hops, clean yeast. T - Sweet malt, corn, mild dry grass hops, a touch of lemon on the sides of the tongue. M - Low carbonation, slick, flat finish. Not sure how old this is. Overall less than expected. The low carbonation and finish was a let down. I would love to try this on tap in Prague. Serving type: bottle 09-09-2011

Holmen2 (853) - NORWAY - AUG 27, 2014
From can. Clear golden. Dense, but slowly diminishing, head and lacing. Superb and refined aroma of continental hops, with some malt sweetness. Flowerfields and newly mowed lawn. Less hops and less complexity in taste. Good drinkability.

Clear gold, medium white head. Hop and "big lager" on the nose. Bitter sweet with a watered down finish. Overcarbonated. I swear this was good last time, not so much now.

HippyHop (86) - CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
This stuff is like KFC: I get a weird hankering for it about once every five years, and then I remember why I haven’t had it in five years. Nose is grass, grain and skunk. Taste is the same. Finish is ambiguously dry. It’s better than its bastard son, but that’s about it.

zvsn (566) - ISRAEL - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden with a small head. Skunky and grainy aroma. Sweetish, pale malt and grassy flavors, mild herbal bitterness. Light-medium bodied. Feels not fresh though BB 04/15.

DedicatedToFun (2406) - Santa Monica, California, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle, clear pour, no head, tastes like budweiser,so not much of a taste or nose at all, just light easy drinking lager.

HopTsing (426) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2014
From the cask came a golden brew with a thin white head. Subtle malt and hop aromas flavors make this lager very drinkable.

Bottle. Dark golden yellow appearance, large bubbles, average white head. A standard pilsner hops taste, which makes it nicely bitter, with a grass and malt aroma

Nice bohemian pilsner, with its orange/yellow colour and unique czech taste.
