COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale gold in colour with delicately flowery aromas and a taste in which hop crispness and malty softness combines to highly drinkable effect.

This beer pours a normal yellow color with medium white head and minimal lacing on the glass. The aroma is very malty and almost a little sour. The flavor is dry with very apparent hops and a lot of carbonation. Sourness is detectable in the sides of the mouth, but not too much. Very reminiscent of a better Heineken. The finish is moderately dry. I'd have this again probably since it is not very expensive, but it wasn't anything wonderful.

Yum, yum, bestow upon me an unspecified quantity. I had this in Germany and it came in a brown bottle, plus seemed way hoppier and heavier, but this'll do. The version I had here seems more coppery, thin to the palate and less bitter, unfortunately. Very grassy, has that true Czech taste, a fine summer beer. If you're from Ontario and therefore have limited choice, grab a few while you can, because it goes fast.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2003
Light, grassy phosgene aroma. Very sweet for a pilsener but not in detrimental sort of way. Little head, a orange-yellow clear body, with tons of "tiny bubbles" streaming upwards. Pleasent bitter finish that lingers a good bit, and a satisfying, burp-inducing malty twang. Mostly floral aromas; not fruity like other pilseners can be and I prefer this.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 15, 2003
Nice, subtle nose and good flavor. Has the presence of barley and a nice finish that is sweet and malty. Very smooth.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 3, 2003
Good carbonation and crystal clear golden yellow in appearance. Nice Saaz hopiness. I've had this in the Czech and now in the US, and it is a decent pils. At least it is cheap and as abundant as water in Prague.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2005 Bright clear gold, nice poofy head. Not much nose, but it’s not liked pilsners are known for their stunning redolence. Definitely noticeable hops. Flavor is crisp and clean, lots of sweeter malts, finished up with good hoppiness. Found a nice, soft creaminess in the palate. Good stuff.

A green bottle, lovingly stored under bright lights at my liquor store. Looks nice in a weizen glass, with a nice head and decent colour. Aroma is skunky, probably due to poor conditions of storing. The flavour was OK at start, but the metallic aftertaste turned me right away. Thought it was also watery in the finish. I did drink it all, but I can't say I really enjoyed it,e specially at the end.

Aesir (130) - Tustin, California, USA - MAY 21, 2003
Not a bad pilsner, more malty and less sharp than an Urquell. And at less than $1 per half liter in Prague, I can get sillier than a monkey parade down the Charles Bridge.

It is amazing how the method and place of delivery can impact upon the impression of a beer. Off the tap in the UK it is pretty ordinary, from the bottle in Prague it is OK but strangely even when presented in a plastic cup from a kiosk in Wenceslas square with a delightfully grilled white sausage and mustard on a roll it is sublime. Smooth, low hop bitterness but a perfectly soft adjunct to the spicy snack
