Great lawnmower beer. very clean and crisp in the way Budweiser could only dream of. I have had better, but this is very solid.

a boquet of wild grass and flowers. bitter pinches with a twist of malt. I just wish that more brands could get a pilsner going as good as this.

Nice floral hop nose with a kind of crisp grassy feel to it. Creamy white head on top of a golden body, pretty. Flavor starts out smooth and finishes bitter. Got hints of sweet citrus. Very easy drinking beer. Not bad at all.

Interesting aroma. I can’t put my finger on it. It smells sweet. It smells like a pilsner (duh). Clearly a saaz hop with a balance of malt on the mid-taste. Aftertaste was a bit skunky and i might drink it again if it crosses my face but i would not pusuit this beer.

Bottle. Clear straw, creamy white head. Big skunk aroma. Clean and malty with a slightly buttery and bitter finish. Both refreshing and satisfyingly complex. The body is noticably better than the last time I had it, a couple years ago. Really a well made lager. Now if they could only get a brown bottle.

The perfect beer to quaff for pure relaxation purposes while remaining dignified. Not very flavorful, not very complex. Almost as refreshing as beer can get (I’d go with a framboise for most refreshing). It is what it is.

Poured from a bottle in melbourne australia. The full body of this beer impresses me. Beers such as this one really do make the australian "largers" to shame, especially the premuim ones, such as crown larger or even VB or Carlton cold. Even if it may not be as fresh because of the export to melbourne, it still beats many local beers, especially any from CUB.

I tired this a few weeks ago and It was quite good.
I liked everything about it more than the actual taste though. I was not a big fan of the after taste...It sent shivers down my spine...I couldn’t tell if it was a good or a bad thing.
Also, the last time I drank one was while I was watching Blackenstein...so that may have soured my experience with this beer.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2006 Golden beer with a short lived white head. Clean hoppy aroma. Good malt flavor on the front, but too bitter on the end. Good body with some crispness. Fairly good for a pilsener. I am no fan of pilseners. Wouldnt have bought it except the bottle shop had it on sale and I been seeing it everywhere lately. Czechvar is better. .. 5-09-2006 .. on tap at the Jacksonville Ale House. Smooth and lightly hoppy goodness. Crisp and tasty.
