2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer is the perfect example of why I don't like pilsners. Transparent; light in color; crisp flavor with a slightly rubbery aftertaste; and almost alcohol-free (only 4.4%). Makes a good mouthwash.

I like so many others got burnt with my first 6pack, as Pepi LaPhew must have sat in it. The 2nd one was much better. Dark golden color, quick disappearing head, slightly hoppy aroma,Soft but full satisfying taste and aftertaste. Crisp, simply one step up from the American commercial brews. Problem is, how do you recommend it to someone when there's at least a 40% chance they'll be skunked

Skunky, I will try this on tap and buy another bottle to see. Bitter aftertaste.

the only complaint i'd say would be the occasional skunk bottles you get. but other than that a great pilsner, definitly one of my fav. beers. always good going down.

Pretty good. Pale color with OK head and no lacing. Typical Pils, only OK. Nice initial taste and a decent finish. Not bad.

The head was small sized, white and contained fine-small bubbles that quickly dissipated.The body was carbonated and clear.The hue was gold.The nose was skunky and there was no lacing with this beer.The flavor was bitter tasting and it left an aftertaste.The mouthfeel was thin and watery.

Hoppy, skunky, but somehow appealing. Not much on the aroma, decent head, slightly bitter, but light and refreshing.

This is the true "skunky" beer. Somewhat simi9lar to Heine, Becks, and the others. Not spectacular yet not shitty either. The 6 pack price is a bit hefty, try to find stores that sell these individually.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2003 I can't believe I forgot to rate this one. Golden color with a nice head. Grassy, hoppy aroma. A very hoppy taste that I'm not a fan of. I prefer a weaker flavored pilsner, like St. Pauli Girl. Not my favorite kind of hops.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Overall, a wonderful brew. Strong golden color with a well-balanced hop-malt combination. Although, I think Czechvar edges it out just a little.
