Great floral aroma. Awesome Czech balanced from a smaller brewery. having both on tap and bottle is one of my fave Pils from Czech. Chewy body in a good way yet can drink much, yet not over carbed. Its Full of taste. Better than Urquell. This brewery is impressing me.

This can’t really be a pilsner? The bottle only labels it as a ’Premium lager’, but this was a rich amber colored lager with a huge foamy white head. Aroma was vaguely fruity with hints of toffee and molasses. Flavor was downright juicy, with toffeeish malts and a med bitter finish. Smooth, rich, and a bit heavy. This was more in the range of a Vienna style lager than any Czech pils I’ve ever had.

Very nice pilsener beer! Interesting in the fact that it feels fuller bodied than other pils styles I've tried. Amazing spicy hop bite and dryness. Long finish. Excellent.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2003
A magnificant pilsener. Very clean and very fruity. Still the dry hoppyness and the fresh fruityness is balanced to perfection. This is a beer that can (should) be swallowed in lage numbers. Great pilsener, in spite of the quickly diminishing head.

Lemke10 (806) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a clear, clean amber color. Has a decent head with an average amount of carbonation. Scent is that of some grassy grains mixed with a slightly amount of citrus. Has a nice texture that isn’t too thin or too heavy. Taste is rather wheat like and mellow. Drinks rather well, especially on a hot summer day.

A Czech you can serve a beginner, not so full of hops like some of the others, but clearly a bohemian.

Golden colour with big head. Aroma is hoppy and flavor is malty with some bitterness.
