Today was supposed to be the day I visited the Tatran brewery in Slovakia. Because I got screwed out of that, I had to settle. That’s an understatement, actually. Golden colour. Limp, watered down flavour and aroma. Hint of malt but bugger all for hops. Not a pilsner and not worth trying twice.

bhensonb (13734) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle from Bottleworks. Pours dark gold with a foamy white head. Light grainy aroma. Medium body; foamy carbonation. Flavor is light malt with a small amount of bitter. The whole thing is rather light, but the herby/grassy bitter sticks in the mouth. So it’s a long bitter finish. Pretty drinkable.

Tmoney99 (13161) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Bottle from World of Beer, Clearwater, FL. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate grass and grain aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Light to medium sweet flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration. My expectations where not met.

FatPhil (13061) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 13, 2009
500ml can (Warsaw)
Clear orange, very brief head. Strange deep-heat menthol aroma. Watery in the mouth. Weird taste - some dishwater, and some of the deep heat menthol. Some of those two, and mushroom too, in the finish perhaps? Pretty messed up.

imdownthepub (12803) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2009
Keg, 500ml at Kawiarnia Santos, Krakow. Gold, highly carbonated fizzed head. Cereal malty, sweet, honeyed and again cardboardy. Light with just a hint of hop. Not great.

Benzai (12596) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2012
50cl can shared with Dutchdrebus and Joes. Clear golden color, small white head that disappears almost instantly. Smell and taste are both flat, lightly malts and slightly hayish with a slight bitter finish. Thin body, low to medium carbonation. Not bad in the sense that it has major flaws but just a boring weak pilsener.
