GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Tap at Churchkey. Rating #5200! On tap as "Koutska 12° (Unfiltered/ Unpasteurized)" so I think this rating belongs here as raw krausen was probably not added to the keg here- no heavy yeast in suspension haze. Pours a clearish, low haze, brilliant bright orange, rocky white head. Perfect sheets of white lacing on both full pours I had. Nose is soft valencia orange, sweet peach, butterscotch, pear, mild apple. Taste is spicy, big Saaz hops, sharp metallic notes at first. After warming the harsh metallic twang is gone and replaced by super herbal hoppiness, peach cobbler, crackery pale malt, dried orange. Body is quenching, refreshing, not sticky, not watery. Wow. This is what I needed. 7/5/9/5/16=4.2

swoopjones (6201) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 31, 2013
draft at Blue Monk, lighter copper gold pour, noble hop, grassy aroma & flavor. touch of malty sweetness to balance a good dose of grassy bitterness. Nice pilsner

TheCametron (1877) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 22, 2013
Keg at U Slovanske Lipy. Tried alongside the Unfiltered. I think the unfiltered won but this was excelent too. Pours deep Golden with a thick White head. Hoppy aroma. The flavour has a lot of Malt character tied together by the grassy straw hops. A wonderful balance which leads to a satisfying bitter finish. A fine balanace and a king among Pilsners.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 25, 2012
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to large sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a uncarbonated transparent orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was malty with a straw note. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

On tap at Armsby for Zwanze day. This is the second time Ive had a Pilsner that has blown me away (the first was Uprights Pils). Light toasty herbal spicy aroma. Taste is really crisp clean noble hops with great light biscuit malts. Fantastic.

tlind2 (1159) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2012
Draught@Rotterdam, Helsinki (2011). Golden color, white head. Citric hop flavor, strong malty base with a hint of alcohol. Medium body, medium-high carbonation. Not a great pilsener.

heavy (2161) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 14, 2012
21/07 Grand Tasting, tap at Rychtar Jakub, Bratislava during RBESG GT. I was in doubt should I even rate it, as obviously it was not in its meant shape, but as I did with all such beers so far, I’ll rerate ASAP. Anyway, it had clear golden body with small head. Buttery aroma, popcorn, hay. Lot of yeast in its flavor, butter all the way around, messed up with nice Bohemian herbal hops. Medium bodied with long, acidic finish. It showed some of its qualities and it was very drinkable, but whether is the batch or the storage, it needs a rerate!
