3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Full gold vergeing on amber, nice fluffy head, with clean saaz aroma. Possibly a little munich malt in this, or maybe I'm just picking up on the caramelization from decoction mashing or a vigorous boil- either way, a little more dark sweetness than other czech lagers. Good bitterness too, nice fresh bottle and just plain nice!

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a nice golden amber with a huge creamy frothy head. Your typical run of the mill Czech lager. Crisp and clean with a slightly sweet taste, but nothing really more than average to speak of.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2005 This brew poured a medium sized white head of mostly lasting bubbles the left a softly carbonated transparent urine yellow orange colored body behind. I could discern no aroma from this brew. It had a smooth mouth feel that was mildy bubbly. Its flavor was thin and lightly hopped.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
i've got one thing to say about this beer: five bucks a sixpack. a lifetime of smart economizing like that and i'll be able to afford the down payment on a keg of traquair for my retirement party. okay, i lied: i have more than one thing to say about this beer: it's also a very agreeable looking sunflower yellow, with little clouds of clean suds that appear with every pour and promptly vanish over that radiance of warm color. dry timothy grass and fresh cucumber go easy on the nose. flavor demonstrates a clean, well-tuned lager that assumes you're thirsty and travels the shortest distance to quenching you, seizing the tongue with athletic carbonation and with just a modest package of dry biscuit malts and a tweak of bitterness. actually the most conspicuous thing about this beer is it's name, which is clearly missing a vowel, it shows how well THEY economize. great? nah. five bucks a six pack? bring it on.

Golden colour, genrous head. Hoppy and herbal aroma. This beer has a good malty flavour, followed by an hoppy, refreshing finish. Another good Bohemian Pilsener.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Nice pour, golden amber color with a large white head. Malty aroma, with cabbage (?) and light citrus hops. Definite lager flavors but slightly skunky with a strong metallic finish. Nice mouthfeel - light with almost creamy carbonation.
