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.

Beer #4 in my lager marathon. Keg. UK version. After three dull lagers, I was hoping for something better from this one. Sadly, if this was once a decent beer, Interbrew have ruined it. The genuine Czech version may, of course be better. There was certainly a little more body and hop character than the poor lagers I drunk before, but the whole effect was spoiled by a ridiculous level of sweetness, which robbed it of much of its crisp refreshing qualities. Next up was Carling Black Label.

Straw yellow pilsener, white head. Sweetish flavour at first, good hoppy finish. Overall a prototype czech style pilsener.

Straw yellow, white head. Little malt aroma with a little noble hop aroma. Very soft mouthfeel, with nice balance of aroma/flavor and bitter. Crisp and refreshing

radiomgb (2182) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2004
Light amber in colour. Aroma was mainly of hops, slightly herbal. Flavour was mildly hoppy, slightly bitter, some sweetness. Medium body. Finishes slightly hoppy, mild bitterness. Rather nice.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2004
Had this before , but forgot to rate it. Pours a gold coloured body with a medium sized white head. Aroma is semi-floral with some hoppy notes and a minimal skunkiness. taste is slightly watery, and hoppy at the same time. Very easy on the palate. A good session beer.

GregClow (2847) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2004
Light golden-amber colour with a moderate head of small, tight bubbles. Aroma of Saaz hops with a metallic background. The flavour opens with a sweet and toasty maltiness, and moves into fresh, grassy hops. Crisp and pleasant finish.

Golden color. Light malt aroma. Good body structure, quite fruity hoppiness, very strong bitterness, just a bit metallic. Pleasant refreshment.

Pailhead (4572) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - APR 27, 2004
Bottle: Not much of an aroma. What little aroma there is, is hops. Dark gold in appearance. White head with slight retention and slight lacing. Slight malty taste with a stronger hop taste. As you drink the taste becomes rather weak. Aftertaste is very short and bitter. Nothing really stands out with this beer. OK, I guess. A little boring. Maybe the best way to put it is not bad, not good, it just exists. Better choices out there.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2004
Pale amber with white foamy head and tiny bubbles. Aroma was nondescript. Thin body. But it was refreshing. Probably good cold on a hot day. But too many better beers to waste time on this.

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2004
A fair test of whether or not you like Pilsener. Dark golden color by comparison to what might label Pilsener. Hop flower aroma and a tart, crisp taste.
