Simple but enjoyable pilsener. Aroma mostly malty (grainy and hay) with some grassy, herbal bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Dry finish.

mmahut (934) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 29, 2014
Pours in pale color body with low white head. Aroma is light malty, mostly grainy and hay. Light floral character. Taste has medium oxidated malty sweetness, light earthy bitterness. Palate could really use more hops. Body is full, medium carbonation, little bit oily. Nothing like I remember. Damn you Heineken.

Bottle. Pours clear golden with average white head. Aroma is malt and bananas. Flavor is malty sweet with only a hint of hops. Very simple and lacks bitterness, yet quite enjoyable.

Quack-Duck (7793) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2013
bottle, with thanks to cuso! Clear golden colour, mid-sized white head. Unusually sweet aroma, syrupy. Medium-bodied, malty base, corn, slightly syrupy with a rather artificial sweetness. Some shy bitterness in the finish. Interesting to try it.

500 ml bottle. 2186703A. BB 05/04/13. From Cuso. Ďakujeme!
Clear golden colour with small white head. Mild sweet malty aroma with hints of grassy hops. Flavour is grassy hops, malt, sweet almond and cardboard. Surprisingly the 10% was better. Not much but I would choose that one.

engelschalk (155) - Trnava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 22, 2011
light golden colour, beer with medium head. Slight bitterness; quite a standard pilsner. Average beer nothing to rave about.

sirPino (883) - Zawiercie/Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAY 14, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2008 Rated: 02.07.2007
Bottle brown, 500 ml, extract of wort 12%
Appearance: Body is light golden in colour, carbonation is weak, all immediately goes off to create head. Head is white, irregular, systematically decreasing, wattery, foamy, no lacing. Body is light to medium, very clear, transpatent body with a beautiful colour.
Aroma: Chalky, a little bit bredy, no hops in aroam, a little bit sweety, milky. Nice, floral malty base as for Bohemian Pilsener. Better in malts than Corgon but worse in hops.
Flavour: Definetely more malty than Corgon, no rubberness in taste, less hops but much better balanced. Though their amount is almost the same, they are much better build in and the hoppy bitternessbeing nicer than Corgon is not violating the mild sweety, milky, malty sweetness which create nice base.
Palate: Palate is nice, bitter, strong, quite long lasting, very good Bohemian Pilsener. Aftertaste is delicious, very long finish, surprisingly well, almost like the aftertaste of Budweiser Budvar.
