Bottle 50cl. Clear deep golden coloured, snow-white creamy head. Wonderful ripe green Saaz hops in the nose. What a pitty that this beer is only pasteurized available in Germany. Must try this in Czech Republic.

Rotin (28) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 25, 2014
Four bottles in four days. One of them was very bad, beer with salty astringency in flavor. The others, brewed different date, was better. Very smooth mouthfeel, light body. Malty, grainy flavor, only slight bitterness. Good drinkable. This beer is on half way between czech pilsner and standard pale lager.

Loiríssima!!! Que espuma cremosa!!!! Cheiro de malte... Doce... Na intensidade certa. Um pouquinho de lúpulo. Bom amargor, boa carbonataçăo. O retrogosto me pareceu doce... sabăo... Sei lá, talvez a minha expectativa fosse demasiada.

Lukasmh (128) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear yellow golden with very white one finger head and high carbonation. Aroma is pilsner malt, subtle butterscotch and some yeasty spices. Taste is slightly sweet with light fizzy body and crisp medium bitter finish.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2014 Rien d’exceptionnel, mais quand męme sympa. Légčrement sucrée, céréaličre, trčs sec. Une texture trčs légčrement onctueuse.

0,5l bottle. I think this beer has a better reputation as it tastes. Ok its easy drinkable but theres nothing special on this beer. Average.

Lappy (25) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2014
Very Average, nothing brilliant. Pale in colour as one expects from a lager. flavour is slightly hoppy but overridden by the carbonation. Okay for hot Aussie summers, but personally the newly arrived Praga Pilsener has more too offer with its classic Euro flavour.

Uma das melhores pilsens, com ótima drinkability. Malte e lúpulo divinamente equilibrados. Final amargo na medida e com uma refrescância absoluta. Espuma média, límpida e de um dourado perfeito para essa lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from can. Aroma is grassy hay. Very clear golden color with white head. Light bitter taste. Light bodied, with lively carbonation, and a dry finish. Overall a nice crisp lager.

sbron (226) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2014
330ml bottle. Drank at the shanghai brewery ( china ). Hazy golden colour. White head. First impression : smells like weed. Taste Probably as weed. Watery also as last taste.

Holmen2 (939) - 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.
