Nice bitter taste. Quite unusual taste, one of the best bottled czech lager.

Grisza77 (102) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 16, 2015
Złote, klarowne piwo o średnio obfitej pianie redukującej się do zera. Aromat słaby słodowy. W smaku słód oraz przyjemne nuty trawiato-ziołowe. Goryczka średnia, przyjemna, ziołowa. Ogólnie całkiem udany czeski pils, jedyny minus to zbyt słaby aromat, poza tym wszytko jak najbardziej w stylu.

Fľaša 0,5 l, pekná zlatavá farba, chmelová aróma, hustá, dobre držiaca pena, krúžkuje. Mierna rezkosť, chuť príjemne horká, chmelová. Dobre piteľný ležiak.

Leighton (13954) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Draft at GBBF 2014 - London. Pours clear gold-yellow with a white cream head. Very bready, with light citric tang, hints of caramel and doughy bread. Light bodied with average carbonation. Grainy and bready on the finish. Meh, I don’t think this is a great example of Czech pils.

Holmen2 (1787) - NORWAY - DEC 12, 2014
From in Brno 12.12.14 with HDI. Clear golden. Foamy, dense and persistent white head. Aroma of Czech hops, grass and flower fields. Similar taste, with succade and good bitterness. Well balanced and very quaffable.

Scopey (8999) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Keg at GBBF 2014. It pours clear amber with a thick white head. The nose is toasty, doughy, grassy, creamy, grainy and hay. The taste is crisp, bitter, creamy, grassy, doughy, hay and light cereal with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Crisp, clean crazy crushable.
