COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Modrá Hvězda 12° Kvasnicový Světlý Léžák. Unfiltered.

Počátek pivovarnictví v Dobřanech je datován již v roce 1378 udělením privilegia s právem várečným. Původní pivovar se nacházel v Dobřanech v Pivovarské ulici. V roce 1872 byl za řekou Radbuzou vystavěn nový měšťanský pivovar, který zanikl roku 1950. V roce 1998 byla obnovena výroba dobřanského piva otevřením pivovaru MODRÁ HVĚZDA. Spojením původního jména hotel Modrá Hvězda s tradicí výroby dobřanského piva, připomíná název světlého dvanáctistupňového ležáku "DOBŘANSKÁ HVĚZDA.

harrisoni (13598) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2008
Draught at the brewpub during RBESG08. Hazy pale gold. Thin off white. This isn’t at all bad. Plenty of character, bit of hop bite. Definitely yeasty. As I say, ok character. Fine.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2008
Draught (rating #5000!). Pale yellow colour, mediumsized head. Aroma is eggy, malty and yeasty. Flavour is much the same. Blech... what a beer for #5000....

ogivlado (5672) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 9, 2008
Draught at the brewpub.
Hazy pale golden coloured, small white head, fresh hoppy nose. The taste is also fresh hoppy, slight malty and mild yeasty with bitter finish and long lasting aftertaste. The best Modrá Hvězda beer.

omhper (19324) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2008
Draught at the brewpub. Cloudy golden, creamy head. Orangey nose with lots of fresh saaz hops. Soft and creamy with medium body. Long oily bitter finish. A full flavoured 12°, containing everything I want in a Czech pilsener. By far my favourite beer at the brewpub!

Marko (3918) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 5, 2008
Tap at the brewpub during RBESG
Poured a murky paleish yellow-golden body with a small persistant white head. Some yeastiness could be found in the nose, but the graininess and pungent grainy maltiness are more evident. Some weak hopiness could be found as well. A pleasant grainy taste surrounded by some her bal hopiness. Quite nice but not a world beater in my opinion.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2008
Tap at the brewpub. Alround rating: Pale biscuity malts, a poeachy sweetness which has an annoying bitterness which detracts this from being a hottie. Still quite drinkable.

ekstedt (5404) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2008
Draught at the brewpub during RBESG08. Clody golden with medium white head. Grainy straw malt aroma with some weak sulphur notes and floral hops. Light to medium bodied with soft mouthfeel. Good balance with moderate bitterness.

Glouglouburp (5998) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2008
Back from a Czech Republic pub-crawl this is part of my express ratings for the “typical” Světlý 11°- (Czech light Pils), Světlý 12°+ (Czech Pils), Polotmavý (Czech Amber Lagers) and Tmavý (Czech Black Lagers). Non-typical beers will receive personalized descriptions after the express ratings.
-------- /> How: Tap at brewpub (Modrá Hvězda, Dobřany, Czech Republic)
The look: Very cloudy dark yellow with a medium white head
To me a typical Czech Světlý 12° and above is: Well malted body with plenty of biscuits and cereals. Sweetness level is in the light-medium range with some honey flavours and a light caramel presence (3/4 honey, 1/4 caramel). Fruity flavour limited to a light citrus flavour. Medium carbonation. Finish is dry and moderately bitter with a light citric touch. After-taste of dry grassy/herbal hops with a light dry spiciness character.
This one: As above (2/3) and 1/3 hefeweizen (with flavours of hay, bananas and everything). Very yeasty. Interesting twist on the genre.
