2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
This pilsner/lager???? poured a amber colour with a yeasty spore head. Scents include a hint of orange citrus with almost a spiced corn scent. Slightly metallic odour. Initial taste was a little yeasty and sour with a bitter finish. Palate had a lingering bitter aftertaste that wasn't too bad. Nothing special.

A very satisfying and refreshing pilsner. Light gold body, and an enjoyable sweet aroma. A tad bitter, but I can also get some sweetness on the finish? Malty sweetness to be exact. Nice brew though....good for a BBQ or hanging with your amigos.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vibrant & clear golden colour with a moderate white head. Fresh and slightly fruity aroma. Nice and well-trounded maltiness in the flavour, with mildly bitter and fruity hops in the finish. Decent and refreshing.

I've had some luck with beers with goats/sheep holding on to a glass of beer, on the label. Pours gold, lacey foamy head. Sweet hoppy nose. Syrupy honey qualities. Grassy. Elements of toasted hop/malt. Finishes crisp and bitter. It's pretty run of the mill.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear gold with high carbonation. Nice small tight white bubbled head with decent retention. Initial smell upon opening of stale hops. After letting settle for a minute clean pils malt starts to dominate. Bit of grassy saaz aroma there too. Thin mouthfeel, though smooth. Sweet tart start with a crisp tart bitter mid. Lovely hoppy aftertaste. Bit of lemon there too. Overall quite a clean refreshing beer. Pils isnt really my style but I enjoyed this.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
They say it is smooth, which it is, but it too hard to drink for a pilsener for mine. too heavy in feel going down, sits on the tongue too long. Needs a kick to help it down.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2007 A great Czech Pils. Nice sweet bitter malt flavour and aroma. Not saazy like the Urquell but who cares, doesn’t seem to have diacetyl. Give me more please.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2005 (Bottled) Golden color with a big, diminishing, lacy head. Quite malty, moderately hoppy and fruity, slightly honey-sugary aroma. Quite malty, somewhat fruity and sweet, aromatic-hopped, but also bitter flavor with a very subtle, buttery finish. Medium-bodied, soft and smooth-carbonated, oily palate. Quite an enjoyable, very smooth and easily drinkable pilsener.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2004 I'm not sure about this beer. Pours with a nice head but that doesn't last long. Some floral and honey aromas. Flavour seems to indicate a significant proportion of cane sugar, lacking malt, some hop flavour and mildly bitter finish. I think I've enjoyed it more other times I've had it.
RR: A bit better this time. Caramel aroma, some soft maltiness, but the metallic hop flavour still annoys me a lot.
