ostrava’s best export since ivan lendl. like ivan i fear it may be past its best. the standard seems to have slipped and it has become more of a supermarket beer and quite hard to find in pubs

Reminded me a lot of Urquell, but a little sweeter- maybe more malt. Lots of saaz hops in aroma. Not my favorite, but still decent. Still not sure where this is actually brewed- says here on ratebeer that it is brewed in New York, however, the bottle says it was brewed and bottled in Nosovice, Czech Republic, and imported by Hornell Brewing company- lake success New York. So I assume that it is imported from the czech Rep.

This beer had a really nice appearance to me but it lacked after that. I found it to malty with a fading aroma.

Fine beer. I would like, that it was a little bit stronger. Very good in old style czech pub.

Nice Euro-lager visual appeal. Shallow aroma as well as flavor. OK choice as a lightly refreshing pilsner, nothing more.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Surprisingly thick wheat foamy head. Fairly yellow and light. A bit of a taste of hops and a little bit of malt. Sweet and crisp with a slight sour taste.

I think I saw this beer under another name. If I am correct I think it was more dry and bitter than Pilsner Urquell. Not bad though.

It looks very nice, only if head was a bit thicker and stronger could get 4. Sweet flowery aroma doesn’t represent well what bohemian pilsners are about. Bready if taste, a bit low on bitterness. Bitterness shows up in the end and aftertaste (when bready , grain fell vanish). Not bad, but nothing great either. Fun to drink.

Fantastic sunflower lager: not so hoppy as Urquell, but very rich, crisp, sparkling and refreshing. Goes nice with Bohemian fish (carp). Ideal for pub drinking (and talking).
