brewtalita (243) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 4, 2015
Light straw color, tall and creamy snowy white foam which makes rings. Aroma of deep maltiness, flour and slight cakiness. Carbonation medium to low, palate full. Taste is malt heavy in the beginning with very thick feel to it although not too sweet. Balanced well by hop ending with slight herbal character. Refreshing and tasty beer, one of the better pilseners around here.

JulienHuxley (5606) - Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2013
On tap at the brewpub (03/03/13). Hazy pale gold pour with rocky white head. Super malty, crisp grain aroma, the same sort of farmy character as the specialni, nice hay/grass hop character. This brewer knows what he’s doing - flavors are all well integrated into a subtle dance of crisp grain, fresh bread crust, fresh cut hay, clean pils malt. Palate is a show-stopper, perfectly fluffy and silky, no residiual sweetness or unwanted yeastiness. I only personally slightly prefered the special, but this one is technically as good.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This smashing Svetly joins hay-like malts, their honeyed sugars and peppery, herbal hops in a silky, rich mouthfeel. An amazing rendition of the style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam laces all the way down the pint glass, following the honeyed gold shine.
-The finish is dry and perfectly offsets the rich flavor profile.
-Pils malts also develop biscuity angles.
-Every flavor is so perfectly integrated into the whole flavor profile.

On tap at the brewpub.
