Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2004
Bottle at JDW High Wycombe. Absolutely nothing I hadn’t tried on draught anywhere in the town centre, so I had this. 4.8% ABV. Sweet and malty lager with a bitter bite. Not so great but drinkable. Notes of honey & sugar. No complexities in the flavour, simply pedestrian drinking.

Jasjin (6) - Nevada, USA - NOV 3, 2004 does not count
Golden and brilliant appearance in the glass. Modest head. Moderate hops flavor, with a taste similar to Pilsner Urquell, but far superior in overall craftsmanship. Clean aftertaste. Wonderful brew.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2004
Clear gold with red hue & big fluffy white head. Sweet, grassy aroma. Typical Czech pils. Nice clean maltiness w/ light bitterness to round it off.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2004
This is a great Boh in that it gives off the impression of honey and has the taste of it as well. While Urquell builds up to the great finish, this one hits quite immediately. Not the best, but better than usual for sure.

TBone (12458) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2004
Bottled (BB 02/2005)
Golden honey color with big white head and lots of lace. Metallic, fruity and slightly hoppy aroma. Medium malty body. Clean, balanced, fruity but not enough hops for this style, more like a premium lager.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2004
A solid pilsener. Hoppy aroma, grassy. Pours a golden yellow, mid-range carbonation. Nice malt body, crisp hops in the finish.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2004
Beautiful golden body with solid head. Nice malty nose. Flavor has this nice czech hoppy taste wich makes this a very refreshing beer.

Eructoblaster (2956) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2004 Nice golden body topped with a thick bubbly head. Good malty nose with strong bready hints. Taste is sharp, fresh and hoppy, and the bitter final is more than decent. This is one of the top-sellers in Czech Republic and Slovakia, and it is a very good example of bohemian pilsner. I even prefer this to the famous Budejovicky Budvar.

imdownthepub (10001) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2004
Bottled (filtered?). Pale yellow with natural head. Good ’soft’ pilsner, full of warm malty flavours overlaid with a hoppy bitterness. Floral qualities show through with an orange fruitiness. Good quality Pilsner.

A truly good, authentic commercial Czech Pilsner. This is the type of Pilsner Beck’s wished they could produce. They can’t, this brew took time. Brew time and cellar time. The quality of ingredients and process are there on this Pilsner. Soft barley and malt tastes balanced with those heavenly saaz bitters. A great example of Czech pilsen style lagers. This one has a distinguishing quality though. It has everything required of a good Pilsner, flowery hopping evident to the nose and palate, sharp crisp start, tart/malty/grassy in the mouth dry finish except, this one has no lingering "tinny" taste to the tongue from the saaz hops. I liked this Pilsner very much . The only draw back is the price. $2.85 per 500mil bottle. I was surprised this beer was so fresh tasting, date code was near expired and it sat unrefrigerated on the LCBO shelf. A “must try” if you like Pilsners.
