Botella. Unclear golden, tiny floaties. Aroma of herbal like hops, bit fruit. Ok mouthfeel. Flavour has a fruitish herbal hoppiness, light to medium bitterness.

yngwie (16530) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2011
Bottle. It’s a clear, golden beer with a small, white head. Rather boring on the nose, fruity and sweetish, with some pleasant hoppyness. The flavor is fruity, with a pleasant bitterness towards the end. Sweetish maltyness, but not cloying. Medium body, quite dry. A decent beer indeed, but a bit boring. 110819

Maris (1394) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 19/3/2011. Has a slight grainy, grassy malt aroma with a touch of lemon. In the mouth, it’s quite sweet, with a quite sharp lemony hop finish. Okay, but nothing special.

highlandlad (1477) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2011
Underwhelming Bohemian pils. A reasonable thirst-quencher if there’s nothing else around but it seemed too sweet for the style and not especially true to its source of inspiration. Found a bottle quite cloying by the end. Rheumy gold with a slight haze and a soft but lasting head. Some hay in the aroma with sweet, lightly floral notes - violets I guess - plus cookie dough. Smells too sweet for a Bohemian and any Saaz is muted. Slightly grabby mouthfeel. Lemony hops, over-sweet mid-palate and a pinch of salt in the finish. Reasonable bitterness. (330ml bottle from Australian Microbeer Club)

bodidly (1) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2011 does not count
One of the finest Czech Pilsners avail in Aus at the moment... Big floral noble hop nose, brilliant malt backbone, nice spicy finish. Get it and enjoy

bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2010
Clear light golden body with lasting head. Crisp taste, good carbonation, good malt backbone with grassy and citrus notes.
