Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Bottle in Kotor, Montenegro. Dark gold with tight, dense, white head. Aroma is very clean, as are the flavors. The hopping is earthy, and peppery but dull, and the malts are straightforward, certainly not sweet, but unexciting. I like that it’s dry, and I like that the body is sturdy. It’s not swill. I have a feeling when this is fresh out of the brewing kettle, it is better. Uninspired but solid.

Teran (133) - Belgrade, SERBIA - MAY 21, 2015
Very bad pilsner. Kitty, because in the time of communism I remember how good it was. Disgusting if it is not very cold, Disappointment with some bad taste and aroma, ordinary look, bad top, etc. I even think it was better few years ago, but now...

oh6gdx (22105) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 18, 2015
Can (from Prisma, Vaasa). Golden colour, mediumsized white fluffy head. Aroma is bready, some starchlike sweetness, mild herbs and grains. Flavour is grassy, herbal, grainy and mildly earthy with some slight sweet malts to it as well. Wellbalanced, but a bit bulky feel to it.

TBone (13718) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 15, 2015
Can 500ml (ABV 4.7%, brewed by Staropramen Breweries, Prague)
Deep golden color, mostly vanishing white head. Malty, slightly grainy and metallic aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Malty flavor with light sweetish finish. Bohemian hops are not very strong but decent bitterness. More on metallic than typical buttery Czech flavor, but clean and malty enough to be tolerable pils.

Andy_ (941) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 31, 2015
500 ml can, 4,7%, can says it’s made in Czech.
Clear white golden beer with white head leaving lacing. Aroma has light citrus, hay, pale sweetish malts and diacetyl. Flavor is dry herbal with some diacetyl and some malts. Palate is quite thin with quite heavy carbonation. Finish has medium bitterness. Aftertaste is herbally dry and bitter, lightly malty and a bit watery-tasting. Not bad for a Czech pils.
