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.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2003
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.

eczematic (1319) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2003
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.

jerohen (1997) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2003
Golden yellow coloured. Hoppy aroma, bitter flavour. Another bohemian pilsener. Not very special, but drinkable.

caesar (5131) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2003
Hoppy aroma. Bitter taste. Reminded me of my visit to the Pilsner Urquell brewery. Quite nice refreshing pils.

Kaya161 (1128) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 6, 2003
hazy golden colour. Grassy, moderately hoppy aroma. Mild bitterness followed by a soft malt finish.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 22, 2003
unappealing aroma. Golden yellow, nice head and lacing for a pilsener. Body is fairly thick and creamy. A nice malt presence and a crisp aftertaste. An excellent example of its style.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2003
Typical straw colour with little foam. Aroma was slightly doughy with notes of grass. Taste is quite sweet and oily feeling. Beer seems to be sugary water with little flavour.
