COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

At bootopia. Aroma was okay grassy hops. Pour was golden. Flavor was okay considering the nose to be so grassy. Palate was okay had a nice light feel to it. Overall it was okay but I won’t kill myself to get another one.

Golden, pilsner-like color. Sweet lemongrass hoppy taste. Thin white head. Not a bad beer, but wouldn’t miss it if I never had it again.

I forget who shared this at Paul’s party, but thanks.

Poured golden with a thin white head. Corn and bubble gum in the aroma. Taste is corn, german hops, and some strange instant noodle soup character. Didn’t really enjoy this too much, but in all fairness, it probably didn’t help that we opened this bottle immediately after Dogwood Youngbloods...

Thanks to friend and RateBeerian; BeanDip for this 16oz bottle, one in which she received from her Michael Jackson Rare Beer Club.

(Herold Bohemian Bronze Lager)
Pours a golden / copper body and a velvety white head. The aroma is sweet and holds an intriguing lemongrass hoppyness to the finish. The flavor again is a balance of sweet notes of honeysuckle; hand churned buttered crackers, a herbal tea like character, brown wild rice and a lemon zest, spicy and grassy hop in the sweet then bone-dry finish. The palate has some nice oily texture to it, which adds a bit more intrigue.

Very attractive deep golden, with an abundant head. Good looking stuff. Lightly dusty spicy saaz aroma. Some beefy czech malt as well. Firm honey-laced malts, just dripping with that signature czech flavor. Quite malty. Decent bitterness, with some late spicy hop character. As a matter of personal preference I prefer my pilsners a bit leaner and meaner (northern german, or from downington, if you must know) but as far as a malty czech one, this ones a real winner.

Crockett (1002) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2005
Golden pour with a short off white head. Perfumey saaz hop aroma with some staleness. Skunk was present but faded quickly. Nice mouthfeel. Satisfying. Quite tastey with medicine-like hops and earthy malts, moss. Not a lot of character to separate from others of the species.

Jayb0 (981) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2005
This is a lovely beer, gold with a solid head. A soft lager with delicate bohemian hopping. Biscuity and nicely sweet with malt and honey. Clean finish.

aobecksy (700) - Middle of no where, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Looks great, clear and golden, just the right head. Would not call it a pilsner, taste honeyesq more like a triple with less alcohol and thinner.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2005
(bottle) Clear & deep golden colour with a medium foamy white head. Malty aroma, slightly toasted with caramel. Full malty flavour and taste with a slight touch of citrus and a lasting bitterdry hoppy finish.

500 ml bottle from MJ Rare Beer Club. Clear gold with a nice sized white head. Aroma is mostly grainy and dough. First taste is nicely hopped and malty. As it warms, the sweet grain flavor comes through. This to m is where the beer gets very interesting and tasty.
