Pale gold in colour with delicately flowery aromas and a taste in which hop crispness and malty softness combines to highly drinkable effect.

Ratman197 (11234) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Bottle poured a clear golden yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of grain, a bit floral and a hint of the skunk. Palate was light and crisp. Flavors of sweet grain, and a bit of citrus with a crisp, slightly sweet finish.

bierkoning (11111) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2002
Aroma has malt and Sazer hops. Relatively full bodied. Hoppy, malty flavor with just a bit of orange fruitiness. Nice hoppy finish. Soft and clean palate. Fine pilsener in the best Czech tradition.

500ml can (Rock’n’Roll, Tartu)
Stinky extracty hop acridness i aroma, some sweet hops. Pale, no idea about the head as I drank it from the can. Slightly sweet malts, starchy, and then a monstrous, and I mean horrific, acrid metal bite. Poisonous plants taste of this as a warning not to eat them. Worls class horror. Took 2 cans of Saku Rock to purge this disaster from my mouth. Utterly wful.

BeerandBlues2 (10774) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Pours a clear pale gold with a small white head and has some thin lacing. Aroma is sweet yeast and malt followed by a flowery hoppiness. Buttery smooth malt initial flavor transcends into a crisp hop finish. Light and refreshing palate with a fizzy finish.

madsberg (10710) - Sřborg, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2004 Rerate: Tried it on tap. Definately better than the bottled version. Seems more fresh. Hops, sweet and fruit charateristics are dominant in aroma and flavour. Very pleasant bitterness in the end.
Original rate bottled version(3,1): Hop is recognizable in aroma as well as flavour. Good bitter after taste. This is by far not as good as Urquell, but still its an overavarage pilsener.
