2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is typical for a pilsner just slightly stronger. It’s simple with cereal grains and grassy hops. The appearance is gold with a medium head. The flavor is just like the aroma. The palate is exactly what a pilsner should be. Overall it’s OK I am just not a big pilsner lover.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours bright golden with moderate streams of carbonation and a yellowhite head that settles rocky and leaves some spittles of lace. Light notes of exhaust and metal under an otherwise hoppy aroma... herbs, grasses and ever-so-light field flowers. Sharp flavor with some sweet maltiness to follow the Eurohop bitterness. It occasionaly conjures the industrial feel of a European Strong, but the 5% is recessive enough to make this a nice Bohemian Pilsener.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle (bb.22.08.2006). Golden colour. Thick white head that gives some noise when withdrawing. Poor in aroma, but some malt can be detected. Medium bodied with taste of light hop bitterness and weak hints of caramel sweetness. Soft carbonated and quite refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is fairly weak, a bit herbal with light malt, metallic hops, and some mild skunkiness. Flavor is similarly weak, with a bit of bready malt, just the lighest bit of hops in the finish, and a little astringency. Lightly carbonated. Refreshing and drinkable, but certainly not remarkable.

Got from a friend who packed in a suitcase from Czech 500ml can, very herbal, nice crisp brew, almost sharp, but not too puckering, NO harshe aftertaste, fair brew.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Found this one for just about E1.85 at a corner store in Dublin. Pours a deep gold with a pure white head but fades. Aroma is metallic hops, herbal, some dms, and light skunk. Cracker and bready malts in the flavor followed by a medium bitterness and light astringency. This wasnt that good and I think they had just got it into the store so it couldnt have been that old.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 1 pt. 9 oz. euro brown bottle with an unmarked bottled date on the back label.
Made a decent pilsener appearance, poured a clear golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing, good carbonation.
Had a nose of lemons, spicy hops and sweet biscuity, pale malts.
A malty crisp, dry and smooth light bodied mouthfeel, above average drinkability.
Decent Czech pilsener taste, dry biscuity and bready malts, lemony and spicy, grassy hops and a dry lemony and sweet malty finish.
Not a great Czech pilsener, but not a bad one either, has a nice balanced taste and is quite quaffable.
