COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This extraordinary beer brewed solely from Czech aromatic hops possesses a distinct gold colour, pleasant hop bouquet and full malt taste with a touch of gentle bitterness.

omikr0n (747) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 29, 2012
Bottle. Good head, lovely clear color. Weak aroma of malt and peas. Very balanced and malty taste, a bit on the sweet side, but has some biterness in it, too. Very good lager.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2012
Bottle. Clear golden amber pour with a long-lasting creamy white head. Malty, grassy aroma has notes of honey, caramel, hay and herbs. Flavour is particularly malty with overtones of fresh bread, caramel and grain, with a hint of lemon. Creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation and a lingering mildly bitter finish. Exceptionally easy to drink, this is a rather outstanding Czech Pilsner.

Bottle. Gold with a white head that never disappears. Aroma of hay, earth, herbs. Full, creamy mouthfeel. Substantial firm grainy taste with balancing bitterness. Lingering earthy and herbal flavours. Decent beer from the malty end of Czech pils.

Koelschtrinker (10831) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 30, 2011
Sffig getreidiger Antrunk mit dezenten Wrznoten, die im Mittelteil steigen und dann verharren. Etwas grasig hopfig, sehr sffig und einfach harmonisch. Zum Ende herber, dazu auch getreidiger. 9/10/10/9/6/9
