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.

Pailhead (4778) - 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.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 19, 2004
Amber with a thin hazy head. Musky malts, sharp hop notes. An earthiness in the flavor. Nice malt blended with hops. Refreshing.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 19, 2004
Golden clear color with light fizzy head and lacing. The aroma has some light skunky hops with some sweet malty pilsner malt notes. The flavor is watery and finiesh soapy and wet. A tad unbalanced with no body. Not too bad for a pilsner.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2004
Yellowish gold color, saaz(?) in the nose, a tad skunked (green bottle). Somewhat fruity with a drying finish. Standard European lager.

Crockett (1007) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2004
Pours a decent clear gold with a sudsy white (bang!!..gone)thin head. Skunked hops hit quick with a bit of green apple. It blemishes the rest of the tasting. Grassy sour malt flavours. Hint of spice. The skunk is overbearing, but does give into a medium bitterness. The beer stills very quickly. Ice cold is not so bad. Reasonable in the average range. The bottle was most likely bad.

Jeppe (2631) - Řlbutikken, DENMARK - APR 7, 2004
This is a traditional Czech pilsener. Clear yellow color with a small head. Quite hoppy in the aroma and flavor and more full-bodied and flavorful than the average lager/pilsener. Refreshing.

redletter (8) - ENGLAND - APR 1, 2004 does not count
Like most Czech Pilsner this is a more complex, and slightly sweeter brew than your traditional European lager. Ignore the beardy ale heads comparing this to Miller because of its "piss yellow" colour - lager is yellow, ale is not. Sometimes an ale is good, sometimes a crisp, yet flavourful authentic Bohemian Pilsner just hits the spot. Compared to its rival, Pilsner Urqell, this is not quit as biscuity and dry but. Bottles are OK, but this beer really shines on draught where a big, cold pint or larger glass provides a satisfying, refreshing drink.

mikeben (355) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2004
Unexciting almost bland. It got a little better as it warmed but it tasted way too much like Bud Or Miller without quite sinking that low. A little platic in mouthfeel but not all bad. It had a richer consitancey then American Standard and was a bit smoother. Had a faint if pleasent honey-hop scent, that did not reflect its taste. Looked very piss yellow.
