omhper (23725) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2006
Bottled. Clear golden, rich airy head. Obvious haylike saaz hop aroma. Fairly sweet with dense, solid body. The saaz hop character dominates this beer, leading it to a nicely bitter finish. Yes, this is how the better modern Czech pilseners taste like. Spot on style wise, and also thirst quenching and enjoyable.

Clear dark gold colour, with big spritzy white head. Big floral hop aroma, unusal spicey malt taste with dry finish.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 15, 2006
Tasted 14/01/2006. 330ml bottle from Bar Edward’s in Newtown. Pours pale gold, brilliant, with a tight white head that holds well and laces all the way down the glass (some credit goes to James - Wellington’s finest glass management here at Bar Ed’s). The nose has three distinct aspects - a subtle malt sweetness that is fresh and biscuity, none of that corny sweetness you get from "premium lagers"; a slightly pollen-like, spicey, hop aroma; and a very subtle, minerally, yeast hint. Flavour is fresh, crisp, with a mild sweetness and a more of that grassy, spicey note in the middle and finish. I’d like to see the malt profile upped a touch, a little richer. Light-med body and a medium carbonation. Very soft in the mouth and easy to drink. A very good classic pilsner, in amongst the gaggle of "new world pilsners" that are popular in NZ at the moment.
