COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At least one a day. This, the most popular brand in the Pivovar Holba, a.s. range, has an unusually rich flavour and the perfect tang of bitter hops.

chmurarz (518) - Legnica POLAND, POLAND - JAN 20, 2009
Golden color with a medium head. Mild, somewhat buttery aroma with a hint of grassy hops. Buttery, malty, sweetish, acidic and slightly metallic flavor. Quite light-bodied, a bit hard-carbonated palate. A not very memorable, decent but light and hard-carbonated lager

pivnizub (8797) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2008
Bottle: Golden to deep golden with a bigger loose and lacy head; cardboardy and hoppy nose; quite dry bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied; some sweet pale-malty illusions in the otherwise dry bitter finish. Tastes better than it smells...........

Pet brown, 1500 ml, 11 P
Appearance: Pours deep and essential true golden and perfectly clear body with moderate to gentle carbonation, head is foamy, grey, initially rathe small to average but quickly decreasing to only a minimal froth floating on the body surface.
Aroma: Initially rather kind of sweety - dull with strange kind of plastic hints but this plastic origin note disappears quickly and gives its place to a moderately alcoholic and moderately sweet, fat malty base suggesting much higher gravity beer than it really is. Some slightly chalky and dusty - fruity notes of citruses and herbs from hops, slightly milky
Flavour: Front is sweet and moderately alcoholic with kind of robust dull hoppyness. Not specially interesting especially due to the fact of leaving not clean and highly unfresh dull, cardboard, parched and simmultanously flat and shallow aftertaste with quite high level of alcohol thet is really felt in not necesarly nice way. Kind of artificial impression. Not well pronounced ingredients. Finish duration is short to medium, tastes more like a Premium Lager than a Bohemian Pilsener.
Palate: Body is light to medium, texture is wattery to strange and unpleasant rough and sandy, carbonation on palate is moderate, finish feel is chalky, dull, parched and kind of fat in terms of flavour but moderately alcoholic. Tastes like a boring market lager, accidity in the aftertaste such as from brewing cereal.

Lubiere (9877) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2007
A golden lager with a thin white head. Aroma of fresh malts and nice hopping. In mouth, a very mineral lager with light sweet malt notes, and metallic hops. Not bad. 4600 COP at Carrefour, Bogota.

Quack-Duck (7794) - Down South, GERMANY - MAY 27, 2007
0,5l can with 4,7ABV. Large head, nice colour. Malty start, getting dryer towards the finish, with very dry-hopped aftertaste.

I was browsing through my favorite store (has a great selection of beers - for Croatia), and I saw a 0.5l can of this in a cooler. Great, I think, a new beer. I started walking to the counter with one can of this, and I passed a bunch of this on the discount "aisle". I never saw how much this cost, so I took a glance. I stopped in my tracks. A 0.5l can of this cost somewhere around 35 cents(euro). I couldn’t believe my eyes. I immediately ran towards the fridge, and got 3 more. So, how did the beer turn out ? Lovely herbal/malty aroma. Very fizzy, golden colour, typical white head. Nothing special. The taste ? Well, this is where this fell short. Very watery, so, smooth I guess. Some metallic hints (I thought that this was the can, but probably isn’t). You have to strain to get some flavor from this. Maybe a bit malty, but that’s that. It had a long bitter hoppy aftertaste though. I mentioned that I bought 4 bottles, well I gave three to my classmates. 5 out of six said that this was crap. The sixth one likes K-Plus. Enough said. How can a beer have such an aroma, and such an aftertaste without having actual taste.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 4, 2005
Tapped. Golden colour, huge white head. Typical lagerish bitter malty/hoppy aroma. Typical lager in flavour too, which mainly was malty with weak metallic hints. One of the poorer Czech beers I’ve had.
