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.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 18, 2002
Crystal clear light gold. Fizzy, stark white edge head. Slow carbonation. Spicy Saaz aroma, butter and toasted white bread. Modestly crisp, dank hop flavor and syrup sweetness. Lightly bitter hop aftertaste of spicy, herbal notes. Light body. Mostly clean. Styrofoam flavor creeps in as it warms. Softer and not as brisk as most examples. Finishes blandly malty but with an oomph of hop bitterness. OK, but there are many, many finer examples.

Beautifully balanced beer. Good strength flavour, aroma, hops, crispness and sweetness. Great on draft on a hot summer evening. Wonderful!

Kaya161 (1128) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 13, 2002
Not bad. Very similar to Prilsner Urquell, but a little darker in colour and a bit more malt flavour. Generally dry and crisp, but it does have some sweetness to it.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2002
Bottled - 500ml, imported. Pale honey shade, low carbonation and a slight head. Aroma is predominantly of alcohol, with a little hops thrown in for good measure. There is a very smooth, tasty and rounded malt flavour, matched by an unusually bitter hop flavour, more-so than others in a similar style. Considering the aroma, the alcohol is surprisingly well hidden when it comes to the tasting.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2002
Pale gold clear under a small short lasting head, Faint sharp metallic sappy hops aroma. Medium light body. Low carbonated. Medium bitter hoppy flavours and some malt on warming. Crisp bitter finish and aftertaste, I found the bitter flavours were borderline stale on this one.

Foamy white head, floral aroma. Clean golden color, crisp.

Tasted alright. A little bitter for my preference, but had a nice balance. Nothing was too overpowering. Very crisp.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2013 light crisp flavorless pilsner. Original rate: 09/04/02 6:45pm....Re-rate: I can’t say I dislike this beer as much as I did the first time, maybe if anything I have gained an appreciation for a decent pilsner. This brew is clean and refreshing w/ slight malt sweetness to compliment a bitter hop middle and finish. Nothing special, but not bad.

A very refreshing brew. Weak malty aroma, though a bitter taste of hops in the palate but not as much as in Urquell. No head on this one.
