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

bought a bottle in a beer store to have with Indian food. It was a crisp pilsner with a nice bitter finish.

(Bottle 50 cl) Comes as "Staropramen Premium". Nice fully golden pilsener with a fully head. The hops leave more bitterness than aroma. Actually a bit too harsh in the hoppy finish for my liking.

Beer number 8 in the Great Ayr/ Glasgow pub crawl. The Goat, Glasgow. No real ale, but I spotted some Liefman’s bottles in the fridge after we’d ordered this. Oh Well. Keg. Not unpleasant. Little bit thin and metallic compared with Urquell for example, but it beats Stella. Saazy aroma, thin mouthfeel, saazy bitter lemon finish, with metallic tinge.

pivnizub (9308) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 24, 2005
Bottle: Golden colour, thin white head; malty and hoppy (hay,straw) nose; quite well rounded, fizzy; the malty taste ends in a dry, crisp, short bitterness. Not bad, but where are the noble, world famous aromatic hops of Saaz (Zatec)..........?

Dorqui (2144) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 23, 2005
Draught. Compact and creamy foam, optimal persistence. Limpid yellow color, much clear and bubbly. Medium grass and malt scent, simple and agreeable. Fresh and enough prickly taste. Fizzy and equilibrium bitter. Much adaptable and refreshing.

The bottle poured a light golden sparkling liquid with a small white rocky head that didn’t last very long. The lacing on the glass was minimal. The aroma was primarily of sweet malt with notes of bread and a hint of floral hops. The initial mouthfeel is sharp, dry and crisp. The initial flavor is of malt sweetness balanced nicely with hop bitterness. As the flavor matures on the palate, the bitterness becomes more pronounced and the finish is a bit harsh.

I had this on tap in Bratislava, where it is served at most of the upscale restaurants. (It appears to be a class thing; fancy places serve Czech beer, and more modest ones serve Slovak beer.) A good example of the Pilsner style. A nice moderate hop bite with just a touch of sweetness. A light mouthfeel; refreshing.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2006 (Bottled) Golden color with a small head. Quite buttery-hoppy aroma with some fruitiness. Strong and bitter initial hop flavor, that blends into sweeter and softer towards the malty, honey-flowery finish. Medium-bodied, quite carbonated but balanced palate. A pleasant and well-balanced, easily drinkable (and forgettable) Czech pilsener without any surprises whatsoever.
