Bottle. Clear pale body with low white head. Aroma is malty , clean. Taste has medium malty sweetness with well balanced noble bitterness. Actually not bad for a bottled lager, would like to try it on tap. Body is full, high carbonation.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 500ml bottle served in a Weizen glass. A: Pours a clear golden yellow color forming a medium bubbled and very bubbled white head. Creamy. Excellent retention and lots of thin and lingering lacings left in the glass S: Great notes of honey and sweet grains. Delicious. Very bready with strong notes of flowery hops. Notes of vanilla and earthy, bready Lager yeasts T: Slightly sweet pale grains in upfront. Crispy. Strong notes of honey. Very bready. Delicious flowery hops. In overall, a dry but smooth and pleasant taste M: Medium, creamy and extremely smooth texture. Good carbonation and a very bready aftertaste O: Great drinkability. Quite "different" Czech Pilsener in the good sense. Very smooth and pleasant Lager [ BA Review @ 6/18/2014 ]

Decent off white head, clear golden body, some lacings inside the dimpled mug. Aroma; caramel malts, fruity hops, butter, butterscotch, floral meadow, mild spices. Taste; hops, apple, caramel malts, bitter butterscotch, peel, grass, fruitiness. Fruity, fresh on palate. Finish has hops, grains, bread, apple, fruity caramel malts. This is certainly a quality czech pilsener. [50cl brown bottle, 5.1%abv, l3°, BB24.10.14, B@U Modreho Lva Pivoteka C.Budejovice]

flying_pig (1008) - SCOTLAND - MAY 23, 2014
500ml bottle from Prague Airport (Ł1.63):
Fresh with some nice grassy hops & hints of citrus plus medium strength lager malts, biscuit & sweetness. Hops with some spice making an appearance as well. Quite a lively one on the nose with a good balance & a pleasantly sweet aroma throughout.
Bright amber with with a 2-fingers tall head that holds well initially & looks creamy with some nice lacing on the sides & a clear body.
Sweet malts, biscuit & bread come through with the grassy hops from the nose. Citrus as well & spice from the Saaz hops & more malty than I was expecting.
Smooth with a medium body & a sweet mouthfeel that almost seemed creamy. The citrus left a tickling tang on the tongue & the beer was well-carbonated, crisp & moderately bitter towards the end.

Another cracking Czech beer. This was was thicker than I was expecting, with a great feel to it that bordered on creamy. The beer was very easy to drink and is again another that is up there with the best that the style has to offer.

Big white head. Clear deep yellow body with strong carbonation. Meaty floral aroma. Dry-sweet earthy strawy taste with meaty minty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish resiny earthy spicy aftertaste with minty grassy notes. Nice and highly drinkable. (0.5l bottle, Csak a jo Sörök, Budapest.)
