Pours a nice golden color with medium head retention. Taste is malty and smooth. Smell is just slightly corny. Finish is sweet with slight bitterness on back of tongue.

Golden, ok white head- Grassy, metallic aroma with what and honey. Fklavor brings hops, grass and some metallic notes. Spicy finish.

rlgk (9492) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2005
Pale golden, quite lasting white head. Grassy metallic aroma with some malty notes and maybe some honey. Hops and grass in flavor too, dry and metallic, hops growing stronger in the finish. Quite a decent pilsener.

pivnizub (8580) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2005
Flasche: Medium-sized fluffy head, pale golden coloured; some grassy hoppiness in the nose, but the main aroma is wet cardboard and some detergents, musty; very light bitter flavour and short, harsh unbalanced finish; this dishwater is nearly undrinkable.........

Arnie (274) - Chicagoland, IL, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Strong nose. Bitter initial taste. Overall flavor was very bland for a pilsner.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2005
Clear gold. Smells of light hops, quite sweet, some decent promise there. Initial flavor is rather good, lightly hoppy, sweet, softer malts leaning towards more of a Czech pils than Bavarian. As the glass continues, the sweetness builds inexorably to an unpleasant, oversweet finish. Started OK, but as more was drunk of the bottle and the beer warmed, it became unpleasantly sweet and sugary.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2005
On tap at a bar in Rhodes, Greece. Thin white head on a pale yellow body. Quite refreshing, nice on a hot sommer day and pure enough ... it feels "clean".

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2005
Nose vaguely cornish, but really there’s not much to sniff at. Typical straw yellow. Refreshing mouthfeel. Quite bitter with even a mysterious hint of smoke. Better than I expected.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 11/20
Trev (1841) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2005
From the can: Pours a clear standard gold with a creamy white head that sticks for a bit. Aroma is standard pils. Hay and malty but not skunky smelling lke many Czech pilz. Flavour is sweet malty smooth. Nothing outstanding. But on par with Bitburge, Konig Pils. I do prefer the German examples to the Czech.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2005
Mostly sunny maize-colored broth with a frothy white head. Little aroma; starchy flavors overwrought with a funky/wheaty twist and a moderate bitterness.
