3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very decent czech lager. Typical golden colour with average head. Its taste is quite bitter with wheat aromas and an somehow abrupt and bitter finish.
Quite generic, I’d drink it just before dinner, with friends, maybe along bread with a tunafish or black olive spread on it.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2005 Not as good in the U.S. as in Prague, but still nice and crisp. Very drinkable. A good beer for a long and distinguished evening.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a golden with a respectable white head (while it lasted, which wasn’t long). Mild skunkiness from the green bottle, but it dissipated after a few minutes. Predominantly grassy aroma, with a faint earthy undertone. I’m not a big fan of the style, why pay import prices for the same flavor as cheap american lagers, but this one isn’t as bad as most.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark gold in colour with lots of carbonation. Grassy hop aroma with a touch of malt. More honey flavored malt flavors with a decent enough contribution of herbal and grassy hop notes. Medium bitterness. A basic Czech pils.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Clear and pale golden colour with a medium foamy white head. Cookie malt aroma with hints of floral hops. Somewhat crispy mouthfeel but this one lacks a bit character compared to its Czech counterparts. Anyway it has a nice bitterhoppy finish.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2005 Faint, sweet flowery aroma. Clear golden colour, with a off-white head that fades quickly but doesn’t disappear totally, but sort of clings to the inside of the glass. A little sweetness can be detected but is overshadowed by the medium/heavy hop bitterness - much more hoppy than a standard euro-pilsner. The body is light/medium, with a soft and pleasant carbonation.

Bottle. Pale gold. Nice enough lager. slightly buttery not too much carbonation with nice biting hop finish, some citrus not much aroma with faint hops. Not bad at all

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Better than average European lager. Attractive dark colour and a small white head. Very little aroma, a hint of malt perhaps. Flavour was sweet and malty followed by refreshing dryness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden colour with a foamy head and excellent carbonation. A sweet, grassy nose. Well bodied malty cereal flavour with an even bitterness. Not too bad. (500ml bottle)
