UPDATED: NOV 3, 2005 Green bottle, skunky aroma. After the skunk passes by, the flavor is pretty good. Good malt backbone, and plenty of hop counterbalance blended smoothly to a highly drinkable beer approaching Budvar or Urquell. No sharp edges except the foul aroma. Good medium body. This could be a fairly decent beer if you could get it without the skunk. (2.8) ..... 11/02/2005... second try.. Ok, got one thats not skunked this time. Aroma is much more pleasant, malty, almost marzen - like. This is very drinkable. Flavor is smooth malty goodness with some respectable hop crispness. Not bad. (3.0)

sammy3D (141) - Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA - SEP 17, 2005
Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass forms a good head. Nice golden color. Crisp, earthy nose. The first sip hits me with hops (saaz?) and hops. Then finishes sweet with another hop rush and then sweet again. Bold bready, hoppy aftertaste. At $4.99 a six pack it’s...well...it’s a good beer.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2005
Sharp punget aroma. Pale gold with an adequate head. Well balanced with a nice malt body and assertive hoppiness. Definitely more hoppy than most of the euro lagers and even other pilseners I have had. Good brew.

Belial (71) - BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2005
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.

gatorbeer (148) - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2005
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.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 22, 2005
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.

piscator34 (2046) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 16, 2005
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.

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2005
(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.

Nice beer, mostly lasting head. Yellow colour, OK aroma and flavour. An average czech pilsener.
