bozoNZ (732) - Christchurch, - SEP 24, 2012
Golden amber, thin head. Relatively light aroma - a little perfume if any. Rich malt builds well backed with a fair whack of earthy and tropical fruits hop bitterness. Nice beer and if from a name brewery would probably be rated quite differently.

SeniorZozo (215) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 27, 2015

mariuszek (497) - Gdynia, POLAND - JUN 7, 2015
Clear, golden orange, thin head. Aroma malty and cereal. Same in taste with slightly bitter and alcohol finish. Boring as helles bock but at least not empty and boozy.

allmyvinyl (6067) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 5, 2015
500ml bottle from Premium Czech Beers online. Pours clear golden amber, short-lived white head. Aromas of minerals, dirty honey, sucrose. Taste is honey sweet, aspirin. Not great.

EvanFriend (414) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Smells awful, some kind of metallic/chemical odor. Taste is better, but not great, strong sweetness, some grass, alcohol.

Vincent68 (375) - Nitra, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 14, 2015
Fľaša 0,5 l z 1. nitrianskej pivotéky. Číra, karamelová farba, nižšia, hustá pena. Stredná rezkosť, výrazne horkastá chuť so sladovým pozadím. Horkosť zostáva dlho na jazyku, zaujímavý špeciál.

SlimHabib (295) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - APR 26, 2015
Bottle pour. Clear golden with a large white foamy head. Aroma is apples and sweet malts. Oily light to medium body. Strong sweet taste that quickly turns to slight salty and somewhat bitter taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RexTalionis (2985) - FINLAND - APR 3, 2015
Bottle. Pale amber, whitish head. Sweet honey and old ripe apple sweetness in aroma. Mashed apple sweet notes in taste. Sweet, but the disturbing stingy and boozy notes aren’t present here, fortunately.

Rating refers to Primator Maibock. Pours light golden from bottle with solid white head. Malty aroma with citrus notes. Sweet, filling malty flavor that becomes very mild lingering bitterness. Alcohol has a presence but is not overwhelming. Full bodied with light carbonation. Delicious beer, fit for dessert, and exactly on the mark with the hops balance. My favorite pale lager to date.

jaghana (4579) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle 50cl, a copper beer with good head. Nose is on barley sugar and grassy hops. Aroma is on sweet barley sugar, grassy and almond hops, good body, light caramel, pleasant bock, good bitterness, another pleasant beer and hops bouquet from this brewery.

Ascelja (200) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle 0,5l; deep gold body, medium white head. Malty aroma with hints of apples. Taste with medium bitterness, moderately light sweetness, malt, apples, grains. Heavy body, medium carbonation.
Nothing special, but not bad for a commercial lager.
