UPDATED: MAY 20, 2005 8/8/2004 (bottle) -
Reddish gold color, clear body. White frothy head. Nice fresh Saaz aroma. I’m trying to decide if I am getting occaisional skunk hints. It seems fine though. Taste is dry and lightly hopped grain. Seems a little papery to. Pretty good nonetheless. (7 / 4 / 7 / 3 / 14)

Didn’t really rate this, but it is great on tap. Light bodied, but occaisionally fruity and almost oily Saaz hops. Better on tap. Nice amber color; better than my friend’s Lite, which some chick thought was water. (7 / 4 / 7 / 4 / 15)

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2004 660ml Bottle. Can be a little prone to skunking, but when it is fresh it is superb. Good Saaz hop aroma and hoppy bitterness. Fairly dry tasting, lovely bitter finish. One of the best pilseners I have had.

Used to drink this a lot, I never realized it was actually a decent beer. Skunky, grainy, corn aroma. Pretty good golden appearance, with a slight reddish hue. Kinda average pilsener flavor. Slightly bitter aftertaste. OK pilsener.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2009 It’s a very fine pilsener aroma. Nice pilsener, how it’s supposed to be. It’s a twinkling sensation on my tongue. Nice dark yellow colour. Nice!

I thought after the first couple it tasted good but it is beer and thats good cause beer is good although pilsners aren’t on the top of my list, but it is ok.

Watery yellow, fairly skunky with moderate flavor. Sort of greasy texture. Not what I was expecting at all. Not buying it again.

Clear, yellow body. Off-white creamy head, virtually not lacing and mostly diminsihing. Hoppy (flowers) and yeasty (dough) aroma. Moderately bitter initial flavour and lightly bitter (averagely long) finish. Lively carbonation.

bottle. light golden color with a 1/4 inch head. hopped slight skunk smell, but not too off putting. interesting flavor. much smoother than i expected. there is a definite malt taste that is more powerful than i expected. the hops are present more at finish. this is the most flavor i have gotten from a pilsener. leaves a nice buttery flavor.

This is a good import. I like its yeastiness and flavour, but it is not one I would regularly buy. At first, I really liked it. But I came to recognise it for the skunkiness that lies hidden within - perhaps you will notice, perhaps not - and if you want to know how the book ends you have to read it for yourself.
