2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light gold with a medium body. Fresh hop aroma countered with some sweet flavor. Some skunky aftertaste detracts overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Faint whiff of skunk that fades rather quickly. Average saaz aroma, decent enough in quality, but needs to be stronger. Malt flavor is solid, nice and thick on the tongue, but not too sweet or cloying. Good enough, but not anything special.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2003 Another pretty good pilsener from Czech Republic. Well balanced hoppy taste that makes this beer really drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lightly floral, fresh hop aroma with some faint malt and unfortunately a bit of skunk. Effervescent with a slight head and light to medium gold in color. Flavor is more malty than the aroma would indicate, with some breadiness and very light sweetness. Some lightly spicy, green hops as well, surely Saaz. Finish is bitter and turning malty. Clean, also abrupt. Inoffensive but doesn’t do much to distinguish itself.

Decent pilsner, similar to Grolsch in many ways. Nice hoppy taste, good body to the beer. Not too much head to it either.

It’s a good, but not as good as I remember it. By Urquell instead.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light and grainy nose. Small head skims the surface. Clear light gold color. Slightly crisp and rather smooth up front; becomes effervescent, then finishes with a decently balanced bitterness. Malts are light and grainy. Hops are herbal, grassy and slightly skunky. Lingering hop bitterness. Has a couple subtle off flavors: stale nuts and rusty metal. Not painful to drink though; maybe slightly below average.
