Emeister84 (1804) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Caramel, vanilla, flowers, and toasted biscuits on the nose. Clear, deep golden complexion, with white head of moderate retention. Taste is very balanced, lightly sweet (caramel and honey-like flavors), with some snappy and spicy hops. A very clean palate, medium bodied, with light carbonation, and a somewhat sweet, savory finish.

bonkiedeaap (534) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle from Trinkgut in Goch. The beer is pale golden colored and has a stable white head, with average carbonation. The aroma is malty, but also has notes of flowers and citrus, some grass and yeast. The taste is light bitter and also has a malty sweetness which are well balanced. The finish is light bitter and pretty long.

Crystal clear golden with a small head. The aroma is a bit of cracker and a bit of caramel, there is also a faint hint of spicy hops. The flavor is similar. Moderately sweet with some mild hop flavor on the finish. Fuller body and mellow carbonation.

I used to drink Pilsner Urquell years ago when I wanted a Czech Pils. Since Miller took them over and rebuilt the brewery with mostly stainless steel they basically killed the house character of that once great brew. I have tried Czechvar and a few others and they aren’t much better. I find Staropramen is the only one that still has that great Czech lager taste. It’s not as pronounced as P Urquell was back in the day but it still exists to a lesser exent. So as far as I know about classic Czech lagers I find Staropramen the only one that stands out amongst the class of International pasteurized Czech lagers. The palate I am looking for is a long lingering I call it "barley berry" or "fruit of the grain" taste that is balanced by a crisp hop finish that brings the mouth back to neutral. Something I can reach for a drink as many as I want daily and not have a blah taste left in my mouth. Code date is on the back bottom and is 1 year from the brewing date and 2-4 months old is acceptable. Being pasteurized its best in the summer, late spring, early fall when you don’t have to worry about it being shipped too cold from Europe and getting warm again distributed around the USA and getting a damp paper or skunky flavor. the green bottles in the 6 pack carriers keep it from any worries about being light struck, IMO.

VsXsV (3645) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2016
Bottle. Clear deep golden liquid with small to medium white head. Aroma of grain, light corn, bread, floral hops, earth and light toast. Taste is very light sweet and light bitter with notes of bread, light earth, floral hops and grain. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Pretty decent for a eurolager; taste is nicely clean and the carbonation isn’t as high as it can be in this style. Crushable.

Can split with my dad. Clear golden pour with a huge frothy head. Notes of dough, grainy, sweet syrupy, hay and some herbal notes.

Cunningham (6237) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2015
Clear golden color with a fine white head. Malty and herbal aroma with an ok intensity. Medium body and an ok carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness.. Mellow malty, some grain and herbal flavor. Nice easy drinkable pilsner.

Piwo z ładną pianą która utrzymuje się do końca. W zapachu i smaku lekko alkoholowe, finisz nieznacznie goryczkowy.
