angelkostvo (903) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 12, 2012
Golden color with small white head. Aroma of malts, sugar, a bit honey. Taste is sweet and refreshing with some bitterness, but well balanced, and at the end you feel a honey sweetness. Nice one. Pretty good

Postupně sem budu doplňopvat piva, co jsem vypil a zapsal si, chvilku to asi bude trvat a proto k těm dříve vypitým pivům nebudou žádné "dojmy" .

omikr0n (805) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear golden with decent white head. Aroma is malt, hops, grass, with a hint of some spices, honey and mango. Flavor is malt and hops with some lingering grass/hops in the aftertaste. Well balanced between sweetness and bitterness.

erickok (4306) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - AUG 29, 2012
Lovely creamy beige head of over a mostly clear body. Good mild but fragrant aroma with classic hops, cornflakes and a bready base. Surprisingly bitter yet drinkable taste. Wow, quite a surprise. Smoothly carbonated and a medium long aftertaste. If you like your Pilsner bitter - I do - and smooth - I do - this is great. Matches the Pilsner Urquell and alike. (50cl bottle)

promontor (87) - HUNGARY - JUL 14, 2012
0.5 bottle from csakajosor. Starts with a huge, persistent head. Foam tastes bitter and creamy. Hmmm! Typical Czech pilsener, strong, spicy and dry zatec hop flavour , softened with moderate malt. Carbonation is relatively mild, which is just perfect for me. The long-lasting aftertaste is on the bitter side. A remarkable beer, definitely a top-tenner for me.

3fourths (8602) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2012
draft at Soldaten Svejk, Stockholm. clear sparkling gold with a fine-bubbled well-built rocky white head. clean and soft nose presents well-integrated semi-sweet biscuit / cracker / honey malt, medium-light noble hop notes and a clean, inviting, doughy yeast presence. snappy and crisp texture with soft but tight carbonation late minerals and dried grass hop notes. . one of the better svetlys available.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 20, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 0,5l bottle from Czech Republic. Clear, golden colored beer with medium, pillowy, durable, white head. Refreshing, spicy, herbal aroma with a little fruit and honey flavour. Medium bitter taste with some sweetness. Creamy texture, light to medium body, lively carbonation. Spicy, fruity finish. Unique and delicious hop aroma among the Pilsners. It’s almost like an IPA. Very delicious, well hopped Pilsner. Previous rate: 4/20/2012 - points: 6-3-6-3-16 On tap at Csakajósör, Budapest. Clear, pale golden color with medium, white head. Sour-sweet malty aroma - it’s a bit like other Bohemian Pilners (for example: Cerna Hora), but sweeter. Some spicy saaz hops flavour also appears. Light sweet taste with some sourness of the malt. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. The spicy hops dominates the aftertaste. It’s a good, delicious Bohemian Pilsner, but sweeter than the usual.

suprchunk (2607) - Crestview, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2012
Clear golden/straw colored pour. Small white head that fades fast and leaves plenty of splotchy lacing. A corn, pepper, coriander aroma. Crisp and punchy. A sweet spicy flavor with hints of coriander. A slight peppery spiciness in the back. A little of the corn aroma comes in with the start of each sip, but is not in the middle or back. A little bitterness, but not much. Nice beer.
