long live desitkas! to hell with "high alcohol content required" beer snobbery. gambac is an awesome everyday beer with the best chance of no hangover, even when passing the 10 pint mark. ok, one negative aspect acknowledged. it has gotten a little worse then it used to be, as far as i know, prazdroj is not using well water for their gambrinus production any longer, it certainly seems to taste not quite as great as it used to.

djoeye (1207) - Tromsř, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2013
Poured from a 50cl bottle bought in supermarket in Tromsř. Fluffy foam, white-vanilla colour, leaving some patterns and fields on inside of the glass. Hops, herbs and flowers in aroma. Nice yellow-golden and a little orange pilsner colour, stable moderate carbonation. Taste of malts and hops, maybe some peach, citrus. Palate with malts, vanilla, some bread, a nice beer.

i can’t beleive it! This beer is greatly underrated by you. It pours a white creamy head, with nice amber color. Hoppy aroma and a beautiful pils-taste. Such a simple beer can be excellent for me at the end of a weekday.

artyom (417) - Osijek, CROATIA - FEB 26, 2013
0,5l can. It is very refreshing and drinkable, but not as watery as some similar beers. Aroma is hops and malt. Taste is a little bitter. I would like to drink it again.

gnoff (7664) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2011 First rating
Sample at a beer tasting event at "Pannrummet" in Gothenburg, Sweden.
LIght yellow color. Very low scent, malty. Low bitterness and not much taste. VEry easy to drink, still a "clean" pils, but boring. The low score is because of my recent lack of appreciating light lagers, this is well made and a good Czech beer, but just not right for me.
5/2/5/3/11=2.6

Clear golden color, to amber. Lasting big off-white head. Sweet, malty a bit metalic taste. Medium mouthfeel. Medium crisp bitterness. Sweet malty scent. Very drinkable session beer
6/4/7/3/13=3.3

Rerate
Draught at Prague Beer Museum on June 5, 2011
Clear straw yellow color, white head. Sweet but thin malty taste, a bit acidic. Moussy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Acidic scent.
This was one of many beers served when not tasting right from the same place, won’t lower my earlier score since it must’ve been something wrong with the beer.
3/3/4/2/7=1.9
