3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2006 the 7th tasting in the 10 LCBO lackluster Slavic lagers. This one is the best of the lot... quite surprising actually. This Pilsner is fairly well characterized as a medium bodied bohemian lager in the pilsner style. Poured a pleasant rich gold, nice fluffy white cap that maintains, good lace, medium carbonation. Nice sweet biscuit malt and floral saaz hop notes in the Aroma. Medium carbonation...slick mouthfeel, good malt delivery in balance with "tinny" hop bite...finish is clean with tart drying from more hop pronouncement. A nice Bohemian lager

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Gold in color, skunky in aroma, thin, tinny & watery while bitter not from hops but from something objectionable. Either a bad bottle or a very bad beer...Drain pour

Well, a bit hoppier than most lagers. Pours a clear gold, small white head. Aroma had definite hoppiness overwhelming the malt, as does the flavor, but there is a definite malty sweetness underneath the hop. Overall, it’s a decent beer, but not the best Bohemian pils I’ve come across by a long shot.

Good enough, but nothing special. Bitterness becomes too apparent when it warms, so drink this one cold.

Pours golden with small white head. Nice hoppy aroma and flavor, but unfortunately a little skunky. I would like to have this one minus the green bottle. Balance slightly more to the malt versus Urquell. Good example of this style.

2.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This lager pours a clear yellow with a short lived white head. First scent is VERY skunky. Damn green bottle. Trying to get through the skunk, it seemed to be like every other lager from this region. A little more richer than the others, this one tastes better. More caramel and a hoppy finish. Not what I expected.

From the tap in Kingston JDWs. Pours deep gold colour with decent head and lots of bubbles. Crisp hoppy taste, slightly sweet but well-balanced, an excellent pils.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2011 I had never had this one so curiosity got the better of me. Sampled from a 12 oz green bottle ( a sin in my book ) this beer poured a golden amber color with only a trace of a white head. The aroma was sour, malty and tangy. The flavor is sour, lightly malty and finishes even more sour - and not in a good way. The beer is also vaguely skunky. Wholly forgettable. ANY BREWER WHO CONSENTS TO PUTTING THE BEER IN A GREEN BOTTLE SHOULD BE BANNED FROM EVER BREWING AGAIN!!!!!!!

Bottle bought at some street vendor in Prague. My bottle looked different, but im pretty sure its the same beer. Hoppy, medium-malty beer. Some hints of honey nuts, but mostly grains. Bitterness towards the end. Actually, for a hoppy-lager, pilsener, I enjoyed it. But that might have been because I was in Prague;)
