On Tap. Golden pilsner. Foamy head. Slight bitterness. The bottle is always skunked so its better to have it on tap. OK.

A quality pilsener when on tap. Pretty hoppy nose and flavor. Medium body dry and bitter finish. Beware the green bottle though.

Golden color with medium white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy but not as strong as expected.Taste is of the classic pilsner. Smooth crisp hoppy taste with a little bitterness in the finish.

Had it in a bottle. It had a hoppy aroma. Crisp and clean. The hop flavor lingers. Good beer. Pleasant.

On tap, golden with average white head. Has a nice hop aroma, just a tad on the skunk side, but this seemed to be fresh enough. Had somewhat of a sweet malt character. Very drinkable, good pilsener now complete with a huge marketing blitz in the US. I'd take Budvar over this though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light golden color with a foamy white head. Smells like a pilsner should - crisp aroma of light floral hops. Tastes slightly sweet and refreshing. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and slightly metallic . A solid offering of this style - but I have come to prefer more robust styles than pilsener.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught, 0.5 L glass. Poured with far too much carbondioxide which makes the head disappear much too fast. Also has a bad influence on the mouthfeel. Improves considerably after some time in the glass, however should rerate bottled version.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
crystal clear (i can read through it!) straw color with a thin spongy head. lots of bubbles, and a balanced, floral aroma (saaz maybe?). a semi-sweet taste with good mouthfeel and a solid body, and a slightly bitter finish/aftertaste (not a bad thing, though). nothing too complex here, but could definitely be a session beer. very clean, overall not bad!

quite mediocre, nothing too exciting, thin head, medium carbonation, and the nose was typical of that of a pilsner. For a while pilsner was my favorite style, but anymore I just cant get into them. Easily drinkable with a nice aftertaste, somewhat sweet but slightly hoppy, maybe. quite refreshing.
