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.

Znalec ocení typickou pivní vůni a chuť, které ve vzájemné harmonii dávají tomuto středně až silně prokvašenému ležáku příjemnou pitelnost, ležákovou plnost s osvěžujícím řízem a obsahem alkoholu 5%. 12 EBC.

Bottled. Best before 27 Feb 2007.Malty scent and taste. Good, balanced carbonation. Clean, astringent, refreshing finish. For US$5.99/ 6 pack, we have a gem!

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2006
Best by Aug. 2006. Beer pours a clear, medium gold color with an average-sized, frothy, white, mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma is malty with light notes of toasted grain; yeasty with light notes of dough; moderate miscellaneous note of honey, trace note of watermellon rind. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately-to-heavily bitter with a long, moderately bitter, slightly metallic finish. Aftertaste is remarkably unclean. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.

Pint, off tap. A golden pilsener, with a lasting rich white head. Hoppy aroma. Similar to other czech pilseners to taste, crisp, with a pleasant refreshing hoppy and almost metallic bite. The finish is similar, and lasting. One of my preferred lagers to drink, though seems slightly wanting in flavour.

Had a 12 oz. bottle at a Greek restaurant. Actually went pretty well with the olive and spice-based appetizers. Of course, the food probably hid some of the aroma and taste of the beer, but all and all, not a bad Pilsner. Will have to try again sometime when other factors aren’t present.

I’ve had Staropramen Lezak both on tap in Prague and in bottles, but for this rating, I’m concentrating on the bottled (well, more speicifically, the one sitting in front of me). Staropramen isn’t one of my favourite Bohemian Pilsners (Pilsen Urquell, Budvar (Budweiser) and Gambrinus all knock spots off it) but my local supermarket has recently stopped stocking Pilsen Urquell (bah to them!). It pours nicely with a decent head. The aroma is fairly nice, with that sharp crispness particular to Pilseners (although, not as nice as others), the appearance is quite pleasant, marginally darker than some other Pilseners, although maybe I’m splitting hairs. The taste isn’t bad either, but you don’t get the nice sharp after taste of other brands, and in the mouth it doesn’t have the same bubbly feel on the palate - in fact, somewhat watery. So in summing up, it’s not a bad little beer - but in it’s field you can do alot better.

Ok, Ok, Ok call me crazy - I actually liked this. It surprised me for a pilsner (which I usually don’t like). Typical clear gold pour. Had a pleasant yeasty nose. A grassy start, floral hop middle, and surprisingly ok finish.

Bottle. Pours a gold color with minimal head. When I drink this, I think of all of the hot Czech chicks who never get to know the true me. Not really. But it’s nice to think that way. Think Beck’s beer, but without the suck that goes with it.

A drinkable beer. Not bitter or something else negative. It is just a beer without a special taste. just raffinement.

ALLOVATE (2828) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2006
Another Czech pilsner owned by the tyrant. Anyway, not a bad effort overall. Easily quaffable, but against the legends of the Republic it seems a little bland. Poured a clear medium gold with a small touch of amber. Head rose and then fell in on itself to leave a white froth that left some legs. Nice mix of honey, breadcrumbs and spicy, grassy hops in the aroma, which quickly died off after a few whiffs. In the mouth the spicy and bitter grassy hops form a backbone and make their presence felt. Light bodied and crisp on the tongue; soft notes of pale, husky and sweet grains give it a little balance. Finish is very short for a beer of its style. Its very clean whilst cold, but becomes a little flat on the palate as it warms. A decent summer quaffer, but a little undemanding to drink. Not bad!
