2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden in colour with grassy aromas and little carbonation. Flavor wise, it starts like a Helles, but develops some odd sweet notes on the finish. Somewhat cloying... could be better.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden straw colour with a large white head. Leaves some good lacing. Fruity, herbaceous nose. Clean-tasting but much hoppier than other pilseners I've tried thus far. Grassy flavours with a fairly bitter finish. Pretty good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thi sis the only beer that I can truthfully say pours a solid yellow color. Very very thin head and leaves some lace on the glass. Aroma is slightly sweet, with trace of sweetness. solid mothfeel, terrible aftertaste...leaves my mouth feeling used. Not too great.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2007 Bottle. Not much of interest here. Drinkable, but without character. Pale malt and a slight sprinkling of hops in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2004 vintage bottle, which in the case of czecho/slovak pilseners aint a good thing. all that was left was some bland, syruppy, honeyish malt, with vestiges of herbal bitterness. oh, and a slight, strange aftertaste of menthol. rer8: fresher bottle with the scratch'n'sniff label. toast, butter and grass in aroma, tasty flowery saaz and honey flavours, and a reasonable amount of bitterness a watery finish (as i just discovered oakes also detected - i must be right then). still, decent flavour, even if it's shortlived.

Golden yellow coloured. Hoppy aroma, bitter flavour. Another bohemian pilsener. Not very special, but drinkable.

Hoppy aroma. Bitter taste. Reminded me of my visit to the Pilsner Urquell brewery. Quite nice refreshing pils.
