Nice beer, Yellow in color. Pours with a thin head. It is malty and rich in flavor. The beer is hoppy. The hop flavor builds as the beer is consumed. Good lager.

Pours dark yellow with thin white head. Grassy, malty aroma. Malty and rich, with a mild hop note. Hops build as the beer is consumed. Not a bad lager.

I was expecting an authentic pilsner and instead I got this crap. Light golden brown color. Fizzy white head. Sweet bready aroma. Cloyingly sweet that is. Oddly thick, sticky palate. Hard to drink.

smelled a malty/mildly skunky smell. poured a dark golden color with a fizzy head. The taste as very watery at first but as a drank more I could taste some malty notes in the beginning and a very mild and bitter finish. Judging from the ratings i also am thinking this is the "premium lager" that is on the bottle.

Pretty standard faire for a Czech lager. Yellow, fizzy, light bubbly head. It has the usual dry maltiness to it. Decent at best.

Struggled to get a head on this beer and a lame one at that. Spicey aroma with a bit of earth/peat. Color is a medium orange/gold. Flavor is slightly sweet and pretty bland. Finish is a bit zesty with some hops presence. An ok imported lager but nothing special.

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.
