Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - FEB 29, 2008
UPDATED: APR 14, 2008 This is a nice Czech lager that is notable for having primarily a stronger, more darkly toasted malt-grain quality than usual. It is dark gold with a smallish, but lasting off-wite head that leaves almost no lace. The aroma is a full-bodied lager smell definitely dominated by very toasty grain, along with grass & herbs with hitns of earth, flowers, and sulphur. The taste is similar, being predominantly a malty, more darkly toasted grain quality along with a tart, dry bitterness that really predominates after the start. There are elements of honey and grass, although the herbal-piney hop flavours are not as strong as I would have expected and it really is dominated by the toasty grain. Even the bitterness, while on the strong side, is more of a dry, toasty bitterness without the usual flavours that I’d expect. In the end, it is full-bodied, tasty, very crisp, and and gets points also for being a bit different.

Poured from the bottle into the pint glass, this is old school pilsner. I used to go to a bohemian restaurant in Cicero to feast and drink this beer off the tap every Sunday. This is authentic Czech goes great with anything pork, starch, and gravy.

Jonb5 (507) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2011
Half litre bottle, small head. Very nice colour, looks like a belgian pale ale. Saaz aroma, also picked up hints of red cabbage. Sweeter than other czech beers, tasted of flowers. Nice mouthfull. Decent go to beer, nice on a hot day.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Poured a nice golden color with afinger of white head. The nose had a definite skunky aroma with a little maltiness beneth. The flavor was smooth and lightly sweet with a slightly biting finish. Mouthfeel is light and effervescent with a lingering hop finish. An acceptable lager it has the virtue of being very crisp, and a little lemony, which in this case was a good thing.

Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 5, 2011
Your slightly better than average Central European pilsner. Crispy, citrus, nitrogen, hops, hay. Yellow pour with a good crisp, effervescant white head.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2005 Pleasant surprise. Nice looking light golden pilsener with a fair, fresh aroma. Good pilsener taste that receded into quite a bitter aftertaste. Not bad, just unexpected. Overall, a really good pilsener that is better than most of the popular ones out there - wonderful on a hot day.

musinj6 (500) - Dedham, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Pours a clear light golden with one finger head with medium lacing. Starts a toasted malt. Grassy hops. A little skunky. Sweet upfront and quickly turns moderately bitter. Medium finish. Medium to thin bodied, sticky mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Typical green-bottled beer.

Franzen (500) - SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2014
Bready toasty aroma, slightly roasted slight notes of pear and chocolate bit of floral hops. Taste starts malty sweet but soon turns dry and bitter. Nice dry and refreshing
