3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet clean malts, touch of hops. Clear, gold, white head. Medium bodied , malty with light bitter finish . This lager is lacking crispness and smoothes that true quality Czech Pils got. Could be past its prime?

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2007 The pour reveals a clear golden color with a medium, creamy, white head. Superb aroma of hay, noble hops and malt. The flavor is near perfect, there’s floral, fruity, noble hops with hay and crisp, robust malt, it finishes with bitterness. The body has a full thickness with a creamy texture and gentle carbonation. This is a superb pilsener.

Shy head but nice golden color. Good character for a pilsener, good hops, almost fruity. Very well balanced between refreshness and aftertaste.

Golden and limpid body topped with a nice and thick but quick-fading white head. Fresh hops and bread aroma. The flavor is lightly fruity and dominated by Saaz hops. Good bitter final. This is a nice Pilsner.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2007 Solid appearance for a pilsner, golden with a big white head, very foamy and nicely sticky. Aroma of baked cookies, pancakes and light fresh Saaz hops. This is pretty good, good malty character well-balanced by the meticulous hopping which bring a nice herbal saaz cripsness, the finish is a little watery, the bottom of the keg perhaps.. The body is top notch though, filling and velvety. / A few weeks later, I find it far less crisp with a more restrained Saaz character, surprisingly not so consistent? From 3.7 to 3.4/ Seems to vary between 3.1 and 4.1 between my visits. I’ll round this up to 3.6, but know that you can face something spectacular when ordering this.
