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.’

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2003
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.

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.

Clear golden hue shows only a small fading white head, a state which contrasts with the goodness of this product. A pleasant pils malt display that procures the toasted notes I look for in the style without spare. Hay and straw like, fresh, grassy, floral, herbal. This feels pretty much like a textbook version. Despite the heavy filtering, the yeast can’t be overshadowed completely and leaves a doughy signature that procures some depth to this otherwise unpretentious beer. Great mouthfeel, the small bubbles make for a crisp and engaging carbonation despite the global thinness. Simple, refreshing and authentic example that does everything right, but nothing grand.

RSRIZZO (1949) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Had on 9/9/2002 and was labeled as Boom Czech Beer. Aroma is a rich sweet malt scent. Color is a deep gold with good carbonation and thin head. Taste is like a rich European Pilsner. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a light sweet feel. Finish is a full malt flavor with a mild bitterness in the end. Overall its a good and easy drinking Pilsener.

vinivini (1286) - BELARUS - NOV 16, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2014 Draught. Deep Golden colour, tall fluffy well lacing head. the aroma is special: besides grains, cereal & vegetables some spicy notes and a funny note that I call the smell of the horse. Rather medium body. The taste is sweet with a hint of bitterness. Malt & hop at finish. Slight bitter aftertaste. A nice & special Czech Pilsner.

Toasted malts, citrus, herbal hops and some some floral notes in the aroma. Clear golden coloured body with a low but lasting white head that recedes with some lacing. Very soft, doughy, toasty malt character with floral, herbal, minty hop flavours and fair finishing bitterness. Light-medium body with moderate carbonation that is moderately engaging and effervescent. Simple, straight-forward and very tasty. Bottle (BB141005) sampled with MartinT, Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere.

Bottle. A bit cloudy golden body with a firm head. I like the fact that it’s not filtered to death like most of the bottled lagers anywhere. Saaz aroma. Pleasant palate. Sweet biscuity taste with a medium hoppy finish. More crispy hops and this would be great.
