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.

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.

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)

I used to think this was great stuff, but now it’s just a standard malty lager..has it changed, or have my tastebuds died?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very clear deep gold with a slight white head that lasts a while. Aroma is earthy and spicy but mellows out and blends well with the smooth pils malt as it warms a bit. Nice malty flavor with a modest hop bitterness. Very delicate overall. Very smooth due to a slightly lower than average carbonation. Nice finish. Im surprised how well this beer has stood up in the bottle. Usually most czech beers come in stale or skunked. I really liked this beer fresh in Prague last year but I forgot to rate it.
