COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A truly great Pils, a little maltier and more ‘Bavarian’ than the rest. The 6-packs are brand new for the American market.

Kinz (3258) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2006 Draft, pleasant surprise. Very floral aroma, bit of graininess, typical golden color, decent lacing from head. The taste was of light malts, with a nice blast of hops on the finish, dry at the end. Quite fresh tasting, more pronounced hops than expected. Glad to find this on tap, worth trying. NOTE: bottled version far breadier, hops barely show up here. Draft is a much superior beer.

Shag (2585) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 18, 2003
Appearance is golden lager fare. Aroma is some hops and grass. Flavor is clean with some hop bitterness and a little malt but rather unimpressive. If you are looking for a complex hoppy pilsner keep on looking, if you are looking for something to refresh you on a hot day, then look no further. Basically a pretty good pilsner a step above Heineken/Becks/St.Pauli Girl. Other brewers of Bohemian and German Pilsners should put thier beer in brown bottles like these guys do!

TheRimmer (483) - Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2003
This is what heineken wishes it was. bitter aroma. medium to light body awashed in bitterness and crispness. the finish was bitter, leaves a lot of hop flavors sticking to the tongue, kind of likechewing the pellets raw.

Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2003
Weak aroma, bitter and metallic. Dark yellow clear with white wispy lacing head. Medium body and carb. Well-balanced malts and hops, not big. Finish is a bit bitter but pleasant. After is light bitter.

hopscotch (8914) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2003
Sparkling clear, very pale yellow lager. Large, rocky, mostly lasting white head. The nose is of honey, pepper and apricot. Sweet, tart and citrusy up front, the flavor is balanced by moderately bitter hops on the backside. Hints of mint and honey. Light-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, bitter finish. A good pils!

argo0 (11353) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 15, 2003
Clear yellow body topped by a big white head. Aroma is fairly sweet, apple, cereal, some floral, light grassy. Taste is grassy, apple. Finish is medium grassy. Watery light/medium body, slight crispness.

CEZ (397) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 5, 2003
Nice fluffy head and golden color. Malty and floral aroma. Taste is moderately sweet with a good malt consistence, and a long, dry finish. A good pils, overall.

beerking99 (199) - Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2003
Very nice aroma, soft malt and hops. No skunk, glad this is not in a green bottle. Must be a fresh bottle. Beautiful pale gold, with a nice white head. Flavor is pure hops and malt. No yeast character or esters, as expected from a world class lager. Generous Sazz hops, with a fading malt tail. Aftertaste says MORE!
