(bottle) Clear, deep golden colour with a mid-sized, cream-coloured foamy head. Sweet and slightly sugary, subtle fruity and bready nose with a discreet woody hoppy touch. Well-rounded bready, cara-malty sweetness with an aromatic herbal and woody hoppy bitterness; smooth and well-matured mouthfeel; quite dry malt-accented finish with a balanced hoppy touch (12.08.08).

MartinT (9063) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2005
On tap at Zamecka Konirna in Vrchlabi:

The Lure:
Honey sweetness, raw grain and a little mint battle off the minerals. Peppery citrus fruit babble underneath, but without much consequence.

The Festivities:
Agreeable, slick honeyed malt sweetness is prevalent here, but all remains watery and too easy for my tastes. Very low on the hops, and somewhat boring compared to the kvasnicovy version. A little fizzy in the end, with citrusy tartness, this is a disappointing pils for a Czech brewpub.

A painting stripped down of some of its best attributes.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 22, 2003
found this in a sweet shop up in the czech mountains. was past its use by date but i didn't notice this until i was back in oz so i couldn't take it back and i'm glad i didn't. rich golden with quite a spicy aroma that is typically northern bohemian - like breznak or krakonos or louny. sweet vanilla malt and then an odd bitterness that seems powdery and like grape pip.
