Getting slightly lower score than before, but giving the general state of the beers at this pub the day we visited, I’ll keep the older higher score.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2004
Bottled, drank in Bellagio, Italy.
Golden malt lager, slightly on the fizzy side. Lovely forward malt aroma and clearly not Italian. The bohemian style is clearly evident and the beer stands out in the crowd.

Jó kis kesernyés, olyan mint az üröm amit mirandával etettek meg rumcájszék.

djoeye (3835) - Tromsř, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2014
Off white sodapop head disappeared. Warm-coloured clear golden body. Scents of peaches, caramel, wort, bread, sourish apricots. Tastes rich hops, wort, barley malts, dark bread, herbs, straw and grains. Well balanced, good pilsener body. Finishes with grassy fruity hops, modest malts, dark bread. Even though a butterscotch didn’t show up; a quality pilsener. [50cl brown btl 5.0%abv l2° T&BB18.08.14]

omhper (23728) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2007
Bottled at Hildegards, Karlshamn. Deep celar golden, fair sized firm head. Domintaed by grassy saaz hops. Solid and sweet but clean malt builds a firm foundation for the grassy oily hops to feast on. Lingering bitterness that lasts forever makes me want another one. Good strong Czechish pils!

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - SEP 23, 2007
0.5 l bottle. Pours clear golden body with medium head. Apple and herbal hops aroma. Flavor a bit too sweet, but pleasant. Finish is interestingly, bitterish and really nice. Fizzy carbonated, with bit oily texture this is very good beer, what to say on Czech tradition...

Medium, just yellowish head over clear golden beer with initially lively carbonation. Caramel, coffeemilk, straw. Again caramel, but the sweetness lifted by a delicate hoppy bitterishness. Finish slightly peppery, and yet a bit more bitter. Slickness making the light body not feeling thin. FIne herbal bitterness lasting. Excellent Bohemian Pilsner, ranking with the really better ones. Many thanks to Peter!
