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.

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.

foyle (234) - Wyoming, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Appearance: pours a frothy eggshell head which recedes slowly with significant lacing. Color is a clear deep gold with moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma: pleasant aroma of floral hops, yeasty bread, and some lightly roasted malt sweetness Mouthfeel: fairly light and crisp with a pleasingly dry finish. Flavor: near perfect combination of bready malt, some nice sweetness to balance the floral and bittering hops. Overall: an absolutely delicious beer. Smells and taste great. A pleasure to drink. Will definitely be trying this one again.

A VERY good example of the brewers skill. A good beer to begin to introduce friends to something besides Bud and Coors

I love this beer! I found it at the LCBO in Toronto, Canada. It has a great flavour, aroma and is very satisfying. Definitely in my top ten that I drink on a regular basis. Very nice after-taste. I put it along side beer such as Czechvar, Lowenbrau, EB, and Baltika.

Hoppenheimer (5) - Schaumburg, USA - AUG 19, 2004 does not count
Pale gold crystal clear eensy weensy bubbles, decent head. Hops and malt balance nicely with a slightly hoppy aftertaste. Almost perfect for a Helles Boehmishes Bier

50 cl. dĺse. 5,0 %. Křbt i Bilka. Som stor fan af den tjekkiske hovedstad Prag er jeg selvfřlgelig helt vild med denne lokale řl. Vćkker minder. Tjek.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2001
Nice sweet maltiness, almost like a darker beer. Some hop bitterness apparent, more so than Pilsner Urquell but not as much as Crystal. I really have to say that I owe the Czechs bigtime for introducing me to ’lager as quality drink’ as opposed to my previous concept of ’lager as inexpensive summer thirst-quencher.’

Thank you, Central Europe, for brewing the best beers around. So much flavor, and very distinct. This beer makes me want to take a European beer trip.

Very tasty, easy drinking beer. Slightly hoppy, balanced flavor, golden color and white foam. Much better on tap. An all time beer.
