On tap at Perdition. It pours a semi clear light golden color with a nice white head. The aroma is soft honeyed pilsner malt with hints of melon and peach with floral, herbal hops. The flavor is similarly soft with mild sulfer, strong herbal hops, hints of lemongrass and melon. Light hop spice in the finish with more honeyed malt. Really nice. A top velvety soft, malty, herbal floral hopped Czech Pils.

6th Oct 2014, 0.3 litre on tap in the BeerGeek Bar, Prague. Clear and bright golden pour with a white head. Fairly sweet malty nose and taste, drying later in the mouth. Good example of the style but nothing to set it apart from hundreds like it.

mansquito (5474) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2014
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: I assume that this is what I had. It was labelled as Koutska 10... In any case, it poured golden with a white head. Aroma was grass and bread. Taste was a subtle, lightly hopped, not very sweet bready and grassy taste. This beer doesn’t fall into the typical pitfalls of Bohemian pilseners of being overly grainy or overly sweet. This beer is a lesson in balance and restraint.

Dry on the palate intially. Malt sweetness is the main flavor along with a pronounced bitterness. The malt flavor and swertness is not overbearing. Crisp and clean tasting, body is medium and a slight honey like flavor lingers in the finish. Clear dark gold color. This is an excellent brew to drink on a hot day like today. The dryness is n o t cloying and it seems like I could continue drinkin these all day.

ContemplateBeer (2008) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 18, 2014
On tap at Holy Grale. Aroma: A moderate dose of noble hops hit you at first, but there’s just a little grainy semi-sweetness underneath. Appearance: Slightly hazy coppery gold pour with a frothy white head that sustains throughout. Flavor: Malts come up to balance the rich noble hop character; the malts sustain almost throughout the beer with their pleasant, semi sweet presence, striking a perfect bittersweet balance until the very finish. A lingering noble hop release finally dries things up. Amazing to me how these Czech pilsners get so much malt character out of a 4% beer. Palate: Medium body, very creamy texture, very soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: Maybe I’m too high on this, but this was perfect, from expectation to realization. The folks in the Czech Republic are awfully lucky to have beers like this, and brewers with the skill to make them.

Delicate hoppy aroma. Head disappearing to durable layer. Clear light golden body. Noticeable bitterness with a bit of butter. No-brainer.

Tap. Clear golden yellow, nice white lacing. Hay and light citrus notes in the aroma with some dough sourness. Flavor is much more interesting with dough, citrus, earthy hop zip. Lighter body with good carbonation.

Tap. Clear golden color. Medium size, white head, stays. Malty, sourish, grainy, faint hops in aroma. Sweet malts, faint grassyness in taste. Crisp and gassy mouthfeel. Mild bitterness in aftertaste.
