0.5l can, courtesy of an acquaintance who brought it from Prague (thanks Tomislav!), shared with heavy.
Turned out to be the best of the bunch. A pale golden colour with a small white head that went away fast. Weak lemony hops in he nose. The taste was basically a nice fruity maltiness balanced by a herbal hoppy background, a bit oily. but pleasant and drinkable. Short sweetish finish. Nice and aromatic, just my type of lager.

heavy (2569) - Split, CROATIA - MAR 22, 2008
0.5 l can courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks a lot for sharing! Pale golden bodied with medium creamy head. Nice grass and flowery hops aroma, dusty with some slight sweetish bread and flower malt. Flavor is bittersweet, malty, dusty with some kind of butter maybe. Full bodied for the style, feels quite oily on the palate with decent amount of carbonation. Interestingly, pretty short finish, sweetish, mostly following the flavor. Not really my type of beer, too malty, but not bad either.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 28, 2007
Golden with a white head. Nice hoppy citrus aroma and bready malts. Nice balance between the hops and malts make this a typical and very drinkable bopil.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2007
Canette 500ml, courtoisie de Jean-Marc G. De couleur dorée orangé et transparente. Nez de houblon herbeux (foin), de grains de malt pâle avec des notes métalliques et de pain ainsi que des traces de maïs sucré. Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-fort et croustillant ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux petites notes huileuses. Goût de grains de malt pâles croustillants avec de faibles notes fruitées (agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté légèrement sucré et herbeux (notes de gazon mouillé) ainsi qu’un goût moyen-léger amer de houblon herbeux légèrement asséchant (foin et herbes fraîches, présent par la suite jusqu’en fin de gorgée) et un léger goût de pain puis en finale l’on retrouve de petites notes métalliques. Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, moyen-léger amer de houblon herbeux avec de faibles traces métalliques.

Quack-Duck (9088) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2007
UPDATED: APR 12, 2009 bottle. Clear deep golden colour, large white head. Malty nose. Full-boided, intensively malty, slightly sweet with lovely aromatic and bitter hops with a shy herbal character. Bitter-sweet character. One of my favourite Bohemian Pilseners.

cgarvieuk (20430) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 9, 2007
A golden orange colour, with a pleasent banana fruity nose, but a fairly standard lager and too bitter

omhper (22897) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2007
Draught at Soldaten Svejk, Stockholm. Clear golden, firm creamy head. Grassy hop aroma. Dryish. Orangey hay-like saaz hops dominate sweet malt. Clean rounded mouthfeel. Later on buttery malt starts to take over. Finishes with medium bitterness.
