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

A strong brass color with a solid head that doesn’t overstay it’s welcome. Lovely subtle aroma - a sweet, gentle hay air haunted by a calloused hops. The hop is indisputably present but it is not overwhelming. The hop can be faint like a dusty mist left by a fleeting phantom and then hit intensely like an ethereal shiver as it passes right through you. It is slightly sweet and lightly bitter. It is very nice that the hops linger even after the curtain is drawn. Overall, it is very refreshing and complex - a top beer.

minutemat (880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2014
500ml bottle. Solid smooth pilsner with a drinkable sweet character. Can’t say I’d ever go for this again as I mainly drink beer for the sole purpose of trying new stuff, but I don’t think I’d say no if it was the only option on the table.

Bottle, pours a light golden color with white head, taste is sweet with a little bit of bitterness, much better than the American beer with the same name.

(Backlog) Bottle. Golden pour with white head, Light malt and pilsner aromas, as well as flavors. A little upset this doesn’t blow the us budweiser away...

Pours clear golden yellow. Foamy white head quickly dissipates. Aroma is hay, barnyardy, a bit funky. Palette is slick, medium body. Medium sweet, medium bitter. Lots of carbonation, which kind of obliterates the taste on the finish.
