My favorite Slovak Pilsner, especially the bottled one. Much better than Zlatý Bažant, for example.

Many years ago(1992) I did a fair amount of walking thru what is now the hills and mountains of Slovakia. In retrospect I wish I would have done more. At the end of the days hike, the hostel/hotel/barn loft was always the last stop. The second to last stop was of a matter of course the local watering hole. Topvar, Tatran, and Smadny Mnich were the trail sodas of choice that one held in reserve in case the watering hole/store had closed for the night by the time I arrived at our supposed destination. I have had this beer on my wants list for some time now....much to the chagrin of Sloth since my wants list is nearly impossible for anyone other than Cuso, from which this bottle originated in trade. Be aware dear reader that my rating is intentionally skewed for the sake of the reminiscent past. Pours a beautiful glowing gold. Crisp. thin head with slow and determined carbonation. Thin light, bready body. Corn in both nose and body. Thin tinny finish which instantly transported me back to the Tatras at the end of the day when your feet ached and the goulash was warm and tasty. Overall this is not a fantastic beer, but I am glad to revisit it after all this time. Many thanks to Cuso!

Bottle. Slighty sweet malt and hops aroma. Light yellow color. Full malt flavor - slightly sweet with little hops. A nice beer.

dreamloomer (66) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUL 29, 2009
Pils colour with a low, short-lasting head. Aroma not that strong, malty and hoppy. Very refreshing, with hoppy flavour notes and surprising maltiness. Not very bitter.

A fun beer. The original monk on the label died a couple years ago or something, so there’s a new monk from what I understand, and a new label...same beer. Gotta try this if you get a chance.

Lehká desítka, celkem chutnala. Nic extra, ale čekal jsem dle ohlasů horší. Lahváč z Avionu v Blavě.

Canned-from Wisja@shipley;pleasant lager,dominated by sweet cereally malt flavour with just a touch of bitter hops which carry through after the sweetness has gone.Nicely carbonated eg not too gassy.Very drinkable ,especially in comparison with similarly priced lager here in blighty.

You can taste that the hops and malts are well balenced. Over all a sweeter flavor and a smoothe palate.
