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

Bottled from Supermarket. Not much smell to it, smells bready with a bit of grass. Beauitful clear pale honey colour with a nice white head. Crisp light sweet medium bitter taste. Light body, thin texture, lively carbonation, and abrupt finish. A very crisp, very drinkable lager that has that something more to it than your standard crap.

This beer is becoming too industrial. Of course it is better than a poor heineken and it is still a pils but a bit to sweet for me. The colour is nice like gold and the carbonation is regular. My biggest critic is that they cut the quality of hop, if I compare with this product 15 years ago.

I am rather shocked, that website specializing in rating beer and collecting opinion worldwide can’t even do its own home work. This beer is celebrating 120 years of brewing this year! NOT 720 YEARS AS YOR ARTICLE STATES RIGHT UPFRONT!!! The % alcohol by volume is 5. Therefore the PROOF is 10 not 12 as stated. Your description sucks my friends!

From a bottle. Not my favourite style, malty and well balanced, smooth and drinkable.

Bottle. Distinct aroma (saaz hops, grain) from other pilseners. Light yellowish color, clear, watery look. Medium bitterness. Good pilsener.

Im Glas schöne, lang anhaltende Perligkeit, in der Nase malzig, etwas maischig. Im Trunk ausgewogen malzig-bitter. Wenig Abgang - gutes Pils.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2015 Light golden appearance with little head. Tastes of honey, citrus strong malts and is relatively complex to be a larger
