very bland lager... doesn’t have the yeasty pilsner flavors or the crispness that I look for in this style. taste is not bad but flavor is mostly missing

Why do some people insist on using green bottles for their beer. I always approach these beers with apprehension. Anyway, pours with a very light golden color and extreme effervescence that results in a foamy, undulating white head. Fresh hoppy aroma with a hint of malt and lager yeast. Feels refreshing on the palate and gives a clean, astringent mouthfeel. Slightly bitter hop flavors dominate the flavor profile and are met by a light alcohol flavor in the finish. Overall, this is a great Pilsner style beer.

Pours golden orange with a small slightly fizzy head - looks slightly carbonated. Very sweet aroma with notes of malt and some skunkyness. Some caramel in the flavour, but mostly bitter, light to medium body.

Absolutely one of my favorites. This is one of the crispest, most refreshing beers out there in the style of Pilsner Urquell and Budvar. Nice hopiness. Thanks Czechezslovokia for all of the great beers.

light amber color with a thin white head; fairly typical "green bottle" aroma; the taste is mostly of hops with a medium bitter finish

Minimal head, somewhat dry taste, evident hops.
Good Euro-pilsener, although this style seems to be less hoppy in recent years.

Bottle, poured into tulip glass. Light gold, hardly any head. Lightly floral, sweet scents. Clean, bitter taste. Not much to it, but better than most common bottles.

The aromas of this beer are full and enticing, very rich and all of hops and sweetness. The color is reminiscent of ginger ale and the carbonation is high, causing a frothy head that lingers long. The taste is rather light, somewhat bready, and dry. The beer is a bit underhopped in my opinion, I expected a more pronounced profile from the aroma. Not bad but not balanced the way I like this style to be; overall unremarkable.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a golden color. Head is foamy and lasts quite a while. Aroma is a bit citrus hop with a hint of sweet. A little over carbonated. Floral hop citrus with a bit of creamy for taste. not much fullness to it. More like a light beer. It is a middle of the road Czech beer. Nothing offensive, just nothing special.
