2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Many thanks to Cuso! Pours clear, bright yellow-gold with a fine, white foam head. Nose holds a bit of papery pale malts, light cereal. Light sweet flavor, mild hay, more papery malts, some light grains. Light in body with fine carbonation. Pretty crisp to finish, light lemony citrus, mild cereal malts. There’s a slight lemony tang here that stands out. Otherwise, pretty acceptable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Sweet grainy (barley)-malty nose with a touch of honey; mild sweetish-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; sweet-honey in the delicate malty-bitter aftertaste. Unspectacular, but pleasant. Quite good - by slovakian standards.............

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2010 Small white head over deep golden beer. Mostly dry grainy, but with a surprising aroma, remindful of freshly grind coffeebeans and toast, but very volatile, only grassy aromas left behind. Dry-ish, grassy and leafy flavour; rainwater, pretty dull. Rainwater quality, if well carbonated, light body. Starts not bad, but peters out afterwards. Many thanks to Lenka, Tomăš and Peter.

Can from Manitoba. Pale yellow with a good sizded white head. Herbal aroma, celery, floral, and vegetal notes. Herbal bitterness, flavour is a touch grainy. Somethign odd. Palate is on the light side. Unpleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Nice malt aroma. Pale yellow color with moderate head. Balanced malt and hops flavor - nice body. A very nice pils and much better than the 10%.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This kicked the shit out of the 11.5% version I had while in Australia. Pale malt with some faint green hops, reminiscent of the middle-of-the-road dutch lagers (Bavaria, Amsterdam). Not bad in its own right, but compared to the other Topvar I had, stellar!

500 ml bottle. From Cuso. Thank you!
Clear pale golden colour with average to big white head.
Grassy perfumy hoppy aroma with some maltiness.
Flavour is also quite the same. Grassy hops, balancing maltiness and some sweetness. Very much drinkable Pilsener. Nothing to stand out.
