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.

motelpogo (6130) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 27, 2004
i have a bit of a soft spot for moravian pilsners. this had a full malty, rockmelon sweetness and some restrained tea-like hops giving it quite a dry finish

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2004
Bottle. Not bad. Slightly sappy sort of flavour, with some dry peach and bitter hops in the finish, just your average Czech pils.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2004
Very pale golden in colour, this is the most widely seen of their beers on draught and so named as Serak is a mountain near Hanusovice. Some grassy hop is evident in the nose, taste and finish with some creamy maltiness present. Far better than the 10 degree, and far better on draught than the fizzy bottles. (sampled on draught in station bar, Hanusovice)

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2003
Herbal hop aroma. Golden color, white head, good lace. Light sweet but gets sweeter, rather bitter, bit watery, lots of co2, bit dry.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Pours a very clear light yellow gold. . . balanced aroma where hops and malt are dancing in unison. Flavours of chewy dough, dry yellowed grass and wet hop cones. Not as complex as some others have seemed on my trip, but still clean, refreshing and easy drinking.

larsniclas (5357) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2003
A nicelooking beer with a terrific head. Then nothinh much heppens. No aroma, no flavour, watery texture, too much carbonation. An ISL.

rickgordon (3841) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2003
Yellow body. Small-sized white head. Appearance not very inviting. Weak head. Not much of aroma. Too much carbonation. This holds down the score.

Donatas (188) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - DEC 25, 2002
Another average Czech pilsener. Good for refreshment.

When you for whatever reason end up in N-E Bohemia, don’t forget to drop-by in Hanusovice. I reach for Serak whenever I can get my hands on it. The beer has a nice head retention, herbal nose and is well-rounded palate-wise. The only downside is that it is only available in Hanusovice region. And, of course, it is best from barrel.
