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.

Christian (11902) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2011 Hazy golden with a lasting white head. Sulphur dominates the aroma with some malt and grassy hop notes. Sweet flavour dominated by the sulphur and malt.

Re-rated at Zly Casy, February 2011. Still a lot of DMS sulphur, still a sweet malty beer. Raised the numbers a bit though

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2008
Draught at the brewpub. Cloudy pale yellow with creamy head. Very eggy, sulphury aroma with hops lurking behind. Even more eggs in flavour, with struggling hops behind. And how they struggle...

Tap @ the brewpub.
Pours hazy golden with a nice, creamy, white head. Aroma is grassy, weak butter, slightly zesty fruity and with a fine doughy graininess. Fine, creamy mouthfeel. Flaovur is lightly fruity, with apples peeping through. Good chewy maltiness and a fair amount of hoppiness in the finish. A good pilsner.

imdownthepub (11738) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2008
Draught at the Brewpub. Clouded gold with white head. Thin and slightly tart beer with a sulphery nose. Poor and tasteless beer. Not too good.

harrisoni (15665) - 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.

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 (6473) - 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 (21776) - 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 (4359) - 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.
