The unfiltered version of the Rytíř. Do not confuse with the stronger, likely 14° Kvasničák.

omhper (18970) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2007
Draught at Soldaten Svejk, Stockholm. Hazy deep golden amazing rocky extremely firm head. Bready nose with some hay. Fairly sweet with lots of bready malt, later on turning towards butterand dough. Above medium body, fairly soft and lightly fruity with more focus on malt than hops. Salty finish with medium bitterness. Really big for a Czech beer.

pivnizub (8591) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2005
On tap at the Brewery Tap in Svijany: Golden coloured, cloudy, thin, lasting firm head; fruity (citrus) aroma with a tinge of hoppiness; soft, sweetish-malty taste, slightly bitter flavour ; bitter-sweet finish. O.K., but not demanding. Seems to be the unfiltered version of the Svijany Bitter. Presumable only available on draught at the Brewery Tap.........

3fourths (7802) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2011
draft. light hazed gold. mild butter and plastic / chemical nose. unclean. medium-light body. light prickliness of acid, medium bitterness. quenching, but carbonation is a little loose and the malt is a bit too rough. sweet crackers and light toasted grains are the focus. decent but a bit plain.

Quack-Duck (7523) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2008
Czech beer #333, limited edition syphon 444 years Svijany brewery. Hazy golden yellow, large head. Full-bodied, hoppy and malty with a pleasant citrusy touch and hints of yeast. There is a lovely fruityness about. Highly enjoyable brew!

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Floral, citrusy hoppiness grows within the doughy yeast and crisp cereals until a riveting spicy hop bitterness motivates you to take another even bigger gulp. This is another very good Pilsener from Svijany, even if it’s not quite as compelling as their Rytir Bitter.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam floats atop the lightly hazy pale golden.
-Some diplomatic honeyed sweetness leaks from the malts.
-Feeble tartness increases drinkability and fits with the fruity hoppiness.
-The body is rather lean and could have a better build.
-Balanced is achieved throughout, which is to be expected in Svetlé’s of this quality.

On tap at a drab casino house in downtown Plzen.

Shady pale golden color, fluffy lasting white head. Fruity and herbal, bitter hoppy taste with some butter. Sweet and herbal hoppy scent. Medium mouthfeel and bitterness.

motelpogo (6131) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 11, 2007
on tap at vinarna u slunce in plzen, advertised as unfiltered rytir. just like the regular rytir, this has an apa aroma - pine, pineapple, even lychee. syruppy golden with only a faint haze and a steady white head that didn’t seem to diminish at all as i worked my way to the bottom of the glass. rich, melt-in-the-mouth texture with heaps of bitterness which is a mix of grapefruit and grassy-minty-metallic. another very drinkable kvasnicove

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2008
Back from a Czech Republic pub-crawl this is part of my express ratings for the “typical” Světlý 11°- (Czech light Pils), Světlý 12°+ (Czech Pils), Polotmavý (Czech Amber Lagers) and Tmavý (Czech Black Lagers). Non-typical beers will receive personalized descriptions after the express ratings.
-------- /> How: Tap at Klub Skorpion, Pilsen, Czech Republic
The look: Partly cloudy golden body with a medium white head
To me a typical Czech Světlý 12° and above is: Well malted body with plenty of biscuits and cereals. Sweetness level is in the light-medium range with some honey flavours and a light caramel presence (3/4 honey, 1/4 caramel). Fruity flavour limited to a light citrus flavour. Medium carbonation. Finish is dry and moderately bitter with a light citric touch. After-taste of dry grassy/herbal hops with a light dry spiciness character.
This one: As above but with a stronger fruity citrus/orange presence. Less bite than most Světlý 12° but more refreshing and highly drinkable.

KyotoLefty (5913) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2010 Draught at Svijansky Rytir in Prague. Cloudy gold, glowing, with the fine, pillowy head. Creamy, malty aroma with butter, soft malts, citrus, grass, and honey. Soft, smooth palate with rich malt. Creamzy, with honey and cake, rather sweet, with almost enough hops. Estery (peach) and fruity. Good stuff--probably better if not consumed on a hot afternoon.
