Bottled. Nice easy drinking lager. Nothing special. Had worse. Had better.

Thin head, golden color, and much like an American Standard a sweet aftertaste. Good budget beer that you can pawn off to your macro drinking friends.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2005 Rerate Poured with a nice thick creamy white head - dissipated quickly and left no lacing. Pleasant orangeish appearance. Kind of a sweet, biscuity aroma with a malty undertone. Flavor has a bit of honey sweetness overlaying the malt. Kind of deadens as it nears the end - nothing really exciting going on here. Typical Eastern European Lager/Pilsener.Original 2.9 Odd flavors - reminds me of Baltika (Russian) beer I had a while back. Specimen look to the pour. Kind of a sweet aftertaste that is not unpleasant - kind of a yeast malty twang to it. Aroma - a bit like unrefined wort - like walking through a big brewery. Nothing to write home about - but not offensive.

Nice malty aroma. Sweet, malty with some veggie/earthy/peaty undertones. Strong hop kick on the backend, with grainy finish. Good bottle, lousy label, distressing specimen-colored beer. Deep cloudy gold with flocculent bits of yeast.

I actually got some odd coca-cola flavors and aromas out of this one. The rest was basic Bohemian Pilsner--plenty of hops and with a sharp bitterness. Very good, I should say.

Not what I expected. Started crisp with citrus and then went to an earthy, roasted potato kind of feel. Maybe just the slightest hint of clove at times. Nice surprise.

Golden. small head that slips away quietly. This had a thin/medium malt body. The main impression was the hop - somewhere between herbal/black pepper and "dirt" - i finally decided that it was somewhere inbetween and that, yes, it was a very interesting and tasty hop.

Disappointing. Has an odd, almost chemocally taste, that persisits long after drinking. Also some vegetal notes. A bit grassy maybe. Not really worth buying again.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2005 I popped the top and BOOM!...the beer started foaming like crazy. Nevertheless, I’m starting to realize that Czech lagers aren’t as bad as American Standards. This one has a decent amount of flavor, like an Obolon, though I can taste the 5% alcohol, so it’s not well-hidden. Also, the label is the ugliest damn thing I’ve ever seen! It’s designer must’ve been color blind!............Anyway, bottom line: it’s a very pleasant, relatively malty lager that I’d be glad to drink again. Rerate: ’’Holy Cow!’, as Harry Caray would have said. This is one of the strangest-smelling brews I’ve had in ages, but not in a bad way. The sweet Czech malt smell is not quite reproduced in the flavor. The taste is sweet, yet crisper. Somewhat licorice-ish and sweet, with odd malt tastes that are beyond my abilities to describe. I can’t see the hops others see, but I’d like to try it again and see how it stacks up against other quality Czech brews.’

A very average beer, but the price is right at a buck a pop.
