Bottled (thanks Kim N & co). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is bready malts, mild rubber, some slight herbs and grains as well. Flavour is very similar, but a bit stronger on the herbal and grainy side. Earthy and grassy finish.

BlackHaddock (6375) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2012
Feb 2009: Brown 50ml bottle, out of date by one month. The third and final beer in one of my lager reviewing evenings (after Singha and Bangla). This isn’t a style I crave after, but I do appreciate any beer made well. Crisp, sharp and very Czech Pilsner in every way. This is a mister average with that little bit extra. Can’t put my finger on why it gets scores at 3.5, it just does. It looks, tastes and has the feel of a good, well crafted Pilsner.

A nice faint Sprucy nose... Nice Blond-ish looker. Nice sweetish taste with faint zest of vinager & paper. Nice quick residue free palete.Nice even rasp. A very good uncomplicated honest Czech Beer

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2008
Attractive beer, pours clear gold with a fine sized sustained head. The aroma is quite grainy and mildly bitter. Sweet and grasy flavour, again with a little hop bitterness. Not qreat

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - DEC 16, 2007
Bottle, Dodgy Deli, Oxford. Light caramel, white head. Light herbal hops (dill), a bit of malty sweetness. Briskly carbonated, dark toasty malt, a bit of herbal/musky hops. A bit cresote in the finish, but I kind of like it. Not as hoppy as I was hoping, but really quite solid. Beat the red wine my wife was drinking as a pairing with a nice chalky farmhouse cheddar.

Another bottle carried home. Golden with medium head. Good hops and strong malt. Hint of fruit. Carbonation high. Very refreshing. A nice beer.

imdownthepub (13370) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2006
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml. Light golden beer with fizzed head. Sharp and slightly harsh lager beer heavily carbonated. Grainy deeper malt, crisp with a slight cardboard note and a little tinny from the gas. A hint of grapefruit in the body but very little hop impact. A fairly midling Czech Pilsner.

iammadeofjelly (194) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2005
To compare, it’s like a sweeter version of Beck’s lager. Similar flavour colour and head. More bubbles than beck’s, average beer.

Nekronos (4111) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 29, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2006 Nice beer, nice flavor, nice foam, the flavor is a little strong, propper of the east Eruope beers, and I like that, an excellent Pilsnener, you would like it.

Very dissapointing for a Czech pils.No real flavour and very bland. What more can I say.
