Tradiční český ležák zlatavé barvy s vyváženě hořkou a lahodně plnou chutí, chmelovou vůní a bohatou pěnou.
Traditional Czech lager of golden color of balanced bitter and nicely full flavor, hops aroma and rich foam.

On tap at Toulavy Kocour Pub (03/03/13). Feels good to renew with this level of quality Czech beers after a rather disapointing dinner. Clear, very light, bright gold pour with impeccable white head. Aroma of fresh cereal, grain, lots of hops, grassy/leafy saaz but also some more new-world varieties, some hints of citrus, light lemon, melon and pineapple, light honey grainy notes. Taste is grainy, light honey-like perceived sweetness although the beer itself is quite dry, light fruity hops, well dosed bitter finish. Palate is dry, soft, silky carbonation, great palate. A nice modern twist that respects the traditional character of this style.

tomer (2258) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - APR 19, 2015
Draught, small stable fluffy head, clear shiny gold color, intense ripe fruity aroma with some malt and a hint of vanila, flavor of grapefruit and herbs with a light maltiness in the back, empathic medium lingering bitterness and a light sweetness. Very good pilsener.

MartinT (8661) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Elegant citrusy hop spiciness benefits from a grassy touch in this crisp, refreshing Svetly.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A super creamy head of foam tops the bright yellow mist.
-The finish is hoppier than your average Svetly.
-The mouthfeel is creamy yet not very sweet at all.
-A touch of hay is shared by the pils malts.

On tap at U Toulavy Kocour, Brno.

gunnar (6720) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2010
Bottle from Pivonka, Hradec Kralove. Pours light golden with a big frothy white head. Arma is fruity and citric. Fizzy mouthfeel. Taste is full of crisp citrusy hops, which make my mouth dry up, ends bitter malty, with a rather good and lingering sour touch. Nice and refreshing beer from Varnsdorf

Roublard (218) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 21, 2014
Bottled. Classic light golden hazy color with nice stable foam. Aroma is not very impressive, some malts and a bit of hops. Taste suprisingly sweet with some bitterness which is enriched closer to the end. Medium body.

omhper (21768) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2010
Bottled. Hazy golden, small head. Grassy hops and creamy malt, dry with light body and crisp mouthfeel. Fairly hoppy with growing late bitterness. Good pils!

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Earthy aroma, very spicy (pepper, herb), a little butter. Flavor is strongly bitter and with almost no sweetness. Slight diacetyl. A little thin. Great head, frothy and dense also. Bracingly bitter. I like that but others may not. Quite fresh. Good Lord almighty do I love a fresh unfiltered pils.
