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.

Sammy (8942) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2005
Smooth and creamy. Drinkable, which is above average for pils I’ve had. Beats Urquel. Clean, decent malts. Slight citrus in saaz hops. Good carbonation in finish. Balanced but on sweetish side.

pintbypint (2705) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2005
500ml green bottle. Medium golden with a disappointing thin white layer of bubbles covering the surface. Some grass hops in the aroma, funky malt. Malty body, some sweetness. Flowery hops deliver a little flavour and bitterness.

DerWeg (1525) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2004 Hoppier than Czechvar but only just. Not as grassy/floral hoppy as Urquell, which on a good day is really complex, but might as well leave that one for Prague, enjoyed fresh. Most balanced sweetness of the three, at least on this side of the Atlantic.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - DEC 25, 2004
Nice pilsener appearance with a grainy, slightly skunky flavor. Probably pretty good in Prague, but beaten to hell here in CA.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 22, 2004
12 oz bottle at The Fireside in Chicago. Bright straw/amber body, small but lasting snow-white head...quite smooth to tongue and nose, lightly grassy, honeyed and buttery on the tongue (though not from diacetyl), clean and bright. I don’t have a lot more...better than I expected if rather dull.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2004
Cereal malt aroma with some herbal, grassy hops. Clear orange-blonde with generous, frothy, large-bubbled head that lasts very nicely and recedes with fantastic lacing. Sweet, nutty, grainy flavour. Hops flavour is there but seems somewhat subservient to the sweet malts. Balanced bitterness in the finish. Refreshing medium-light body has excellent carbonation that just tickles the tongue. Bottle (green).

thegreenrooster (3304) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 11, 2004
Pours a bright yellow with a small white head. Aroma in mine is skunked. Flavor is weak. Not much to even look for here. Run of the mill euro lager.

JMerritt (1843) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Light golden, clear, with a medium-sized bright white head that is mostly diminishing, leave some spotty lacing. Lots of bubbles continuously flowing throughout. Aroma of wet straw, hay, lightly citrisy hops and very lightly toasted cereal grains. Cereal grains give a slightly sour flavor, but the toastiness is also rather prevalent, giving a nice dry, yeasty breadiness. Very dry finish. Hop bitterness is very subdued.

Burner (78) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 28, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2004 Better than most european lagers. I had the draught, which was quite nicely bitter, with a fairly malty base, but still nothing famous!!

Eructoblaster (3117) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2004
Bottle - 500ml. Nice golden body topped with a good white foamy head. Fair hoppy aroma with some bready, herbal, and fowery notes. Taste is refreshing and well balanced. Good presence of hops, but it lacks complexity. Nice bitter finish. This is an average Bohemian Pilsner I have nothing especially good or bad to say about.
