UPDATED: SEP 19, 2011 Virágozzék ezer (komló)virág! Melyeket mintha csípős, vadul zsibongó darazsak poroztak volna be... (Tudom, tudom, másképp megy ez.) A standard láger mimikri mögött egy IPÁ-san feltuningolt sör lelke lakik a lassan horpadó hab alatt. Ő a nehézlovasság a pilseniek csatasorában, nem egy egyszerű talpas huszita. * Let a thousand (hop)flowers bloom! Flowers which seem to have been pollinated by stingy, wild wasps... (I know though that this is not the way it works.) Beyond the mimicry of an average lager there dwells the soul of an IPA-style beer under the layers of slowly diminishing foam. This beer is definitely one of the heavy players in the league of pilsner type beers.

W aromacie korzennie, ziołowo od chmielu, ponadto nieco żelaza i dms, ale to akurat w stylu, z czasem też pojawia się nieco drożdży i fenoli. W wyglądzie złote, klarowne, z bardzo solidną, zdobiącą szkło pianą. W smaku znów korzennie, nieco ziołowo, słodowy podkład, bardzo klasycznie, pilsowo, goryczka łodygowa. Piwo bardzo czyste profilowo, smukłe, pijalne, lekkie, mocno wysycone. Ogólnie bardzo przyjemny czeski pils, można powiedzieć wzorcowy. I wybitnie pobudzający apetyt;) Dobre piwo.

Fules (832) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 21, 2016
Nagy, tartós hab, mélyborostyán szín. Komlós, fűszeres, kissé élesztős, lágeres illat. Enyhén karamelles, gyümölcsös, intenzív fűszeres-komlós, markáns komlós keserűvel, közepesen hosszú lecsengéssel. Közepesen testes és szénsavas, kellemes, jól összerakott, ízletes sör.

Bottle. Pretty much generic corporate Czech pilsner, nothing special. Weird that it made to top 50.

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 15, 2016
Feb. ’16. A 0.5 l bottle from Mali ducan, Split. Label doesn’t mention "bitter". It poured amber golden body, clear, with smaller head. Aroma of lemon, lightly herbal with fine bread malt. Very elegantly bitter flavor, strong herbal hops, orange peel, with bread and honey malt base. Medium to full body. Long, bitter dry herbal and biscuit malt finish with that fine subtle orange note persisting. Extremely fine Bohemian pils!

mjs (6534) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 14, 2016
(Keg at Soldaten Švejk, 20160323) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was quite large, white and it lasted long. Aroma had grass and mildly butter. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, malts, sweetness, butter and bitterness. Aftertaste was grassy and bitter. A nice hoppy Czech style brew.
