Yellow. Fair head, frothy. Slight herbal aroma. Initial flavor of apple, aftertaste none. Bitter ending. Not the best example of Czech beers.

Ah the green bottle. Luckly I got this one fresh from the box before it had a chance to lose it in the light. Hoppy aroma decent. Dark golden yellow with a large pale straw head. Not bad. Hoppy flavour with bitters that like to hang off your tounge. Dencent over all but nothing to stunning. I had the impression of pencil shavings when I let the beer warm up close to room temperature as I neared the end of the bottle.

Good hop aroma. Light in color, bubbly head. Excellent mix of
hop flavor and malt to create a bitter-smooth flavor. Does taste a
bit watery at finish.

Another Eastern block beauty from Prague. Actually comes up trumps on tap, but a classic German hopped brew in the bottle.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2007 Fine hop and fruit aroma, golden amber, pours a medium white head, nice lace. Good bitter flavour, with a malt after taste. Really well balanced, terrfic mouth feel! A treat of a Bohemian.

A true classic from Prague: intensely hoppy, filled with malt, very drinkable.
