My first go at it was the Chech! Damn! What a nice surprise! And guess what the beer even tastes great as an import to the USA, which is a shock! Most beers brought over loose something! This one is a classic! Add it to your pilsner list!

One of the best, for good reason. The hops come to the fore quite quickly, both in the taste and aroma. It has to be one of the nicest-smelling beers around. But taste is most important, and it doesn’t disappoint. Mild but full of rich hoppy flavor. I can never stop with just one.

Hop aroma and flavor were nice, but just not of the intensity that I remember. It just lacked the kick I recall it having.

I had this beer on draft served in a tall (official) glass that compensated for the nice head of this beer. Aftertaste was not overwhelming but the hop flavor was there. Definitely a fine beer on draft.

Bready, bitter aftertaste. Garden-variety pils. Not bad.

Good slightly bitter mellow taste. The smell is somewhat like sewer gas.

I love this beer. It’s like Heineken made right. The only problem is it is too expensive...but damn tasty!!

I guess what they say about imported beer in green bottles is true. SKUNKY!!
Well after my hurl-fest of drinking this from the green bottle, I tried it out of the cool tall can, and it wasn’t bad at all. Therefore I have changed my previous rating. It goes down very smooth with a fine bitter aftertaste.

An ok pilsener, but the aroma is skunky. Nice flavor, but the palate is too tart.
