A "strong pilsner" that is not all that bad. Certainly not the best Czech beer in the world, but not terrible, either. It's a strong beer, with the alcohol well hidden. Very malty, hardly a hoppy note available. Head disappears quickly with some but not great lacing.

Just awful. I didn't see it was a malt liquor until AFTER I took a drink. On a good note, at least I got to drink a Czech beer.

Maybe this beer should be marketed to the hip-hop generation and be renamed "Boomin' System". A overwhelming malt taste yet far smoother than any malt liquor I've ever had. Much better brew than the regular Boom beer.

Light copper color. Medium pillowy head vanishes in minutes. Aroma of sweet malt and fruit. Malty, yet well balanced. Alcohol 8%, you would never guess. Clean crisp finish.

Rich malty concoction which I think buries the high (8%) alcohol content. Terribly smooth and alluring with a thick white head and fine lacing. Actually quite nice, really.

Went "BOOM" as soon as I popped the cap off. Thus, I had a little volcanic science fair project on my kitchen counter. Light copper color is deceiving, as the beer carries quite a bit of weight. Super-smooth and silky on the palate. Sweetish, lasting malt flavors with notes of apple and pear. Finishes somewhat dry and rather clean. Surprisingly tasty and well-made. Have to say, I was rather impressed.
