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.

My Bottom Line:
This yeasty Světlý Léžák develops honeyed cereals atop herbal Saaz, as banana-like fruitiness (esters, really?) seems to stem from the yeast.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the cloudy beige.
-Its body is clad in pleasantly sugary love handles.
-The prevalent yeastiness does not make this as cohesive as other of their beers, imho. It feels like 1/4 Weizen, 3/4 BohPils.
-Caramel even seems to protrude from the maltiness.

On tap at the brewpub.

PETka z pivovaru. Hazy pale yellow, enourmous large head, hoppy nose. Very aromatic hops (Saaz), slight fruityness, malty body. Full-bodied despite "only" 4.5%Alc @ 12°. Delicious.

Točene v Modre Hvězdě v Dobřanech: Distinctive hoppy (Saaz ?) nose with a light fruity-yeasty touch, backed by some sweet malt, golden coloured, lacy creamy head; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied, very small malty base detectable; lingering hoppy-yeasty finish. O.K., good stuff, but not an archetypal Bohemian Pilsener, the 10° of Modra Hvezda is better...........

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 On tap at the rather blue brewery - makes sense I suppose. Lovely hazy gold, good head. Quite sulfurous in the best way and the hop aroma seems vaguely German (?) to me. Fresh corn chip yeast flavour, big juicy malt and a tiny bit of saltiness in the finish. Fairly light on for hops relative to other Czech beers but doesn’t really suffer for it. Actually some Zoigls reminded me a lot of this beer. Incredibly fresh and drinkable... and delicious. Beautiful.

Tap@Modra Hvezda. Pale, with a hazy appearance. Dry fruit (apples and pears), sharp hop bitterness, really dry once again. Quite classy stuff, super bitter and more-ish.

unfiltered pilsner is becoming quite a popular offering from many czech micro´s. this was quite pale with light murkiness and a fat head with big craters in it. vanilla and peach aroma and a good hit of saaz. tasted a bit like mango weis bars witha hint of muesli and a long lingering slightly metallic bitterness, classy stuff, nothing crazy about it, just a really good czech pils
