Pours a clear golden with a finger of whit foam and little lacing. Grainy and biscuit malt aroma with a little floral hop smell. Grainy and somewhat sweet malt taste with a earthy hop bitterness. Crisp carbonation with a light/medium mouthfeel. Very drinkable lager from the originator of the style.

"i’ve had good ones and bad ones (skunky)...due to the green glass? it’s a highly refreshing brew fresh, slightly sweet and crisp. when i get a bad one, all bets are off. 2.0 for a bad one, 3.0+ for good"

500ml can poured in a Pilsen glass.
A: Pours an absolutely clear golden color forming a big, bubbled and aired white head. Good retention and only few spotty lacings left in the glass
S: Nice perfume of hops. Grassy and flowery Saaz style in the nose. Also sweet grains, caramel malts and low fermentation bready yeasts
T: Follows the nose. Slightly sweet pale malts in upfront. Notes of caramel malts. Delicious Czech style grassy and flowery hops. Lager-style bready yeasts. A bit metallic. Mild hoppy bitterness in the end
M: Light body. Good carbonation. Grainy and hoppy aftertaste
O: Great drinkability. My favorite Czech Pilsener so far. Delucious perfume of hops, good taste of pale grains and a pleasant bitter end
Note: The canned version is considerably better than the bottle one

Clear golden color, kind of sticky but quite short lived head. Aroma has fruity, citric, malty, grainy and piny notes. Very refreshig taste - hops, citrus, cress, sweet malt and a somewhat bitter finish. Classic one.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
NOTE; I had this out of a green bottle, I intend to revise this rating once I get some in a can, brown bottle, or preferable on tap near source.
Dark golden pour with white head. Aroma of cereal grains. Flavor starts out with a bit of orange, lemon, and the typical Bohemian malt flavor. Some unpleasant cardboard flavors in the middle (which I suspect was age or the green bottle). Finish has a hint of hop, dry with medium carbonation.
