500ml bottle. I love the cerny so had high hopes, but ended up being disappointed. Nothing that wrong with it, just didn’t impress - "just a beer" where as I’d rather chase down something special. Middle of the road.

Appearance: clear straw with two fingers of fluffy white head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: floral/grassy, pale biscuity malt, honey. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter. (5/10) Palate: light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry crisp finish. (3/5) Pretty easy drinking, sweetish on the front end with a pleasant off-dry finish. Definitely better than most pale lager/euro lager/pils, and leagues ahead of macro stuff. I know the deScription sounds like a pretty typical macro pils, but it’s far cleaner and better balanced. But, ultimately it’s a pils, so it’s hardly gonna be challenging, regardless. (11/20)

some caramel, very little floral hops. some dms (cooked vegetables), diacetyl. pale, golden, clear, minimal head, white foam, good retention. light sweetness, very little bitterness. kind of empty. light body, thin feel, lively, short finish with slight bitterness. drinkable but nothing special for the style. should be more complex with more aroma and flavour

gorkogrlo (276) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 15, 2015
Can. Small white head. Yellow color. Metallic, grainy, bready smell. In flavor: grass, bread, hay. Thankfully no metallic flavors. Overall: better than commercial pilsner but worse than average Czech pilsner. Maybe, some Czech hops are substituted with cheap hops.

Marek13 (245) - Brzesko, POLAND - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle 18.01.16. Aroma of cooked vegetables mixed with herbal hops, iron and bit of flowers. Golden coloured, clear beer. White head on two fingers, dissapears fast. Strongly bitter - herbs and little sweet in taste - barley, bread and yeast with alcohol and iron. Medium, short, dry bitterness on finish. High carbonation and medium body. Drinkable, but with defects.

Bottle sample. Clear light golden with small white head. The aroma has notes of honey and sweetish fruits (peach, citrus). Sweetish fruity flavor with notes of honey, some graininess, bitterish with some lemon. Light-bodied.
