UPDATED: JUL 17, 2008 On tap at Pivovarsky Klubon 6/30. Pours light gold with a frothy white head. Well balanced mix of spice, hops, and light malts. Quite nice and refreshing. Good beer.

Tap @ Pivovarsky Klub, Prague.
Pours lightly hazy golden with a medium, creamy, white head. Good duration. Soft aroma, fine grassy hops dominating over light malty grain. Good, creamy mouthfeel with little grains in the liquid. Flavour is crisp malty, but especially the super dry, hoppy finish impresses. Nice.

It depends when and where you try it. In the space of a week I had this at Pivo Klub when it was fresh and Pivo Dum when it seems like it was not so fresh. When it is fresh it is good.

Draught (as Stepan Nefiltrovany Svetly Lezak). Slightly hazy golden colour, small white head. Aroma is yeast, malts and hops. Flavour isvery much the same with bigtime mouthdrying grassy hops.

omhper (20915) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2008
<i<Draught at Pivovarsky Klub, Prague. Lightly hazy golden, small head. Surprisingly brutal hoppiness. There’s hat and resin from the first sip. Perhaps the dryness of this beer shifts the focus away from the bready, grainy malt that is there to the hops. Finishes with lingering powerful bitterness. Quite lovely!

Stew41 (1796) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2008
Draft at Pivovarsky Klub. Impressive. Very impressive and pale ale-like. Never heavy yet; the light structure delivers plenty of intensity. Very much about t structure as the beer positively dances through th mouth. Flavours are driven by a lovely light nettle hop character.

Back from a Czech Republic pub-crawl this is part of my express ratings for the “typical” Světlý 11°- (Czech light Pils), Světlý 12°+ (Czech Pils), Polotmavý (Czech Amber Lagers) and Tmavý (Czech Black Lagers). Non-typical beers will receive personalized descriptions after the express ratings.
-------- /> How: Tap at Pivovarsky Klub, Prague
The look: Clear golden blonde body with a medium white head
To me a typical Czech Světlý 12° and above is: Well malted body with plenty of biscuits and cereals. Sweetness level is in the light-medium range with some honey flavours and a light caramel presence (3/4 honey, 1/4 caramel). Fruity flavour limited to a light citrus flavour. Medium carbonation. Finish is dry and moderately bitter with a light citric touch. After-taste of dry grassy/herbal hops with a light dry spiciness character.
This one: As above but too much honey and a un uncooked cookie feeling. Disappointing

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2008
My Bottom Line:
A spicy, herbal wetness caresses the svelte honeyed cereals in this crafty and absurdly drinkable Svetly Lezak.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A lofty head of foam decorates the nearly clear gold gown.
-The flavor profile points to a cleaner version of the regular Dum Svetly.
-Balance is reached like most high quality Bohemian Pilseners.
-I admit I was expecting more from this one, especially after having a great pint of Dum Svetly earlier that day.

On tap at Pivovarsky Klub, Praha.
