1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2007 330 ml green bottle - Pale gold with thin white head. Medium body and carbonation. Sweet, slightly grassy, with a lightly bitter finish. Not very nice. Possibly slightly off so I may have to be be brave and try it again one day.
OK 2 months later and I’ve just had another one. The Previous was definitely a bit off so I’ve upped the score a little.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
manager at liquor store i frequent gave me the bottle to try...budweiser import. nice skunky bitter corn aroma ( i love a good skunky one). palate is much the same...slightly sweet and malty followed by a weird hop flavor that leaves a perfumy aftertaste. overall it tastes like a good...bad? malt liquor of the 40 oz. kind. did i mention i have a ’thing’ for skunky beer?

A very refreshing Czech lager. Piss yellow colour, but sweet, refreshing, slightly hoppy taste. Very nice. Bought from Tesco’s - bottle looked nothing like that adjacent!!!

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Skunky aroma. Very clear yellow, thin disipitating head. Medium carb. Nice smooth sweet flavour, hint of nuts or something. I cant get to it but its sweet and strange. Kind of like the odd taste.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, Tesco. Quite dark for the style, a deep gold. Aroma of straw and sugary malt. To taste this is soft, sweet with very little hops and not an awful lot of character. Sweet aftertaste. It’s not bad as a pale lager, which is what I think it is stylewise because of the lack of hops.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle which, in typical Tescos trend, very closely resembles the Budvar bottle! Golden colour, thin head. Very faint aroma. Hint of fruitiness, quickly taken over by overall bland impression, clinging, artificial finish. Price, at just Ł1 a bottle, is definitely somewhat of a balancing factor.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2014 2nd rating, May 2014. Scores: 5/3/6/3/15
Bottle, 500ml, 5% ABV. A golden pour with a small head. Aroma of sweet Czech hops, a little spice. Flavour of fresh hops, spice, some underlying citrus. High carbonation. Not bad at all.
1st rating, April 2006. Scores: 2/2/4/3/14
Bottle, 500ml. A small but lasting head. An aroma of malt after the initial pour (perhaps some fruit with a little imagination), but after a minute it’s gone. Light golden appearance. A nice hoppy, slightly bitter finish. Moderate carbonation. Not the best lager in the world, but certainly not the worst either.
