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

Belle robe dorée, fine mousse. Nez fruité, maté, épicé, pointe de houblon. Bouche ŕ l’attaque épicée, fruitée, fine amertume, équilibre et fraîcheur en finale. Une bičre de soif.

Jeden z wzorcowych pilsnerów, czeski z Budziejowic. Na lekki minus - zielona butelka, ale etykieta i złotko przy kapslu - piękne w swej prostocie. Barwa bursztynowa, złocista. Doskonale wyczuwalny chmiel, dobrze zbalansowana goryczka aż do samego finiszu. Mocno godne polecenia.

Nurmis (298) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2016
500ml bottle.Pours golden with small white head. Basic Czech Pilsner in terms of style, dry with grassy hops and lingering bitterness with pilsner malts. Nothing bad to say really, good one to enjoy on a hot summer day.

Can. Nice malty and a bit hoppy aroma. Some kind of grass. Quite pleasant. Pretty good, so classical. Pale golden color and nice foam and poor lacing. Fantastic hoppy feeling, grass, herbs. Bitterness is medium to light, it might be higher. Light body and average carbonation. A really good example of bohemian beer (Světlý Ležák 12°), it’s just easy to drink. Propably one of the best mass-beer in Czech Republic :).

Bottle purchased in southern Italy. Golden Amber w not much head. Minimal aroma. Mild taste. Some vague hints of malt and very mild hop bitterness. Ok for a hot day but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aus der Flasche getrunken (Supermarktkauf). Typisch tschechisch. Ohne Höhepunkte.

Echon (328) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2016
Pale golden and medium-bodied. Light aroma with floral and grassy hops. Good yet mild malty flavour, with fruit notes, and a semi-dry taste with light rounded bitterness. Overall, a great czech pilsner. It is tasty, refreshing and well-balanced.

Can - clear pale golden yellow, small carbonation and hardly any head at all. Typical light lager aroma, ok mouthfeel, but gassy going down. Thin tasting, not much taste. Not much going for it.
