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.

piscator34 (2114) - 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) - 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.

HenrikSoegaard (11420) - Randers, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2005
Nice beer, mostly lasting head. Yellow colour, OK aroma and flavour. An average czech pilsener.

unibaren (154) - 8000 Ĺrhus C, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2005
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.

harrisoni (14996) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2005
Bottle. Pale gold. Nice enough lager. slightly buttery not too much carbonation with nice biting hop finish, some citrus not much aroma with faint hops. Not bad at all

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2005
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.

Damage (77) - London, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2005
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)

scotty (1083) - SCOTLAND - JUL 25, 2005
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?

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2005
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.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (500ml). Yay - another international lager (they’re all so DIFFERENT, aren’t they?) . Pours a clear, pale, startling orange - slightly off-white rocky head. Looks flat and unnatural. Smells very skunky - like a mash left out in the sun too long - sour malt, sour hops, linseed oil and dirt. Taste is almost non-existant - slightly sour, slightly bitter, sort of grainy, quick-diminishing with a nasty metallic aftertaste that sticks around a while. How does this thing rate 3/5???
