First crafted during last century this beautifully robust bronze colored lager is brewed according to its original recipe. Definitely not your ordinary pilsner, nor does it pretend to be. Made from the finest Saaz hops, Czech malts and crystal clear waters from our own natural springs located at our 500 year old castle brewery.

Marko (3965) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 21, 2010
0.5l bottle that ogivlado got from Prague and shared with me (thanks!)
Poured a slightly darker golden body, with a small white head. Odd dry slightly gluey nose, some light cardboard and yoghurt. Ok dry bitterness in the taste, slightly herbal. Not too strong and quite boring overall... surprised me now how big the rating is... possibly much better on tap, or just was an unspectacular batch.

Dedollewaitor (14036) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2009
Tap @ Zly Casy, Prague, as Herold 14 svetly special breznice. Pours golden with a creamy white head. Sweet and a bit buttery with a lot of buiscuit notes. A bit of yeast and a lot of grassy hops. Medium and smooth body. Pleasant.
