Thanks to rustychiles for grabbing me one of these. Pours piss yellow with minimal head. Aroma is of Saaz hops and some grassy stank...don’t know if it’s light struck a bit or just took a beating getting transferred here. Taste is pretty good. Crisp, dry, nice hop accents. Very light and kind of boring, but way better than the poser Budweiser (read: it ain’t no corn water).

0,5L can. Pours clear golden with white head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, malty, and grainy. Flavor is very smooth, sweet, malts, grains and some vegetable notes. Finish has some mild bitterness. Light body, but not watery. Overall: not a fan of the style, but this one is really easy to drink.

Copenhagen 13/9 2014. 50 cl can from Føtex. Pours clear yellow with quickly dissipating head. Rather neutral smell - hints of bitterness. Slightly prickly mouthfeel. Pleasant long lasting bitter taste. Fine Czech pilsner.

Can from The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) Pours a clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of sweet grain, honey, grass and subtle banana. Taste of sweet grain and caramel malt plus grassy and spicy hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. Little bitterness in the finish. A pretty good Czech Pilsner.

Barwa złota, piwo klarowne. Piana na początku bardzo obfita, ale szybko się podziurawiła i zniknęła. W aromacie przede wszystkim słód, podobnie jak w smaku. Goryczka raczej niewielka.

Klarowne, czyste w aromacie, przyjemna goryczka to cechy tego udanego piwa.

Skunk (green) bottle, Scotland. Pours light amber with a nice head, quickly diminishing. Scent is strong of malt and hops. Taste is full-bodied pilsner. Medium density, slightly sweet. Palette is minutely syrup, but smooth and inviting. One of my favorite pilsners.
