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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled from Tesco at £1 for 500ml you cannot really complain at that price as it’s certainly on a par with similar standard lagers of this type. light golden coloured, not much aroma, easy drinking, nothing special ok lager.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light golden colour, thin head, well chilled by me. It’s kinda thin on the flavour aswell, a lil sweet. There isn’t anything complicated going on here. The smeel is faint and fairly grassy. Its artificially carbonated, it says on the bottle, thats understandable its making me burp. To be honest it’s not that bad, a bit stella artoisy. has a bit of a tingly aftertaste. Not bad, awesome price £1 a big bottle. quaffable beer.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden colour with not much of a head. My bottle had quite vigorous carbonation. Taste was not very bitter with more malt than most beers of this type. Easy drinking, but not a lot to remember.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. A copper coloured lager which looks a little lifeless in the glass. The aroma is fairly sweet and malty and there is a hint of butter as well. The taste is on the sweet and malty side and is fairly smooth and doesn’t have that lagerish grassy bite common in others of this style.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Tesco. Golden with a small bubbly white head. Aromas are sweet grain with some butter. Flavours are sweet grain, again and buttery (again) with dry, bitter hops to finish. Very bloating and very simple.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled, pasteurised, Vratislav Tesco Premium Czech Lager, 500 ml. Light gold with a head if you poured from a great height. Surprisingly low in carbonation compared to similar lagers, but rather sweet and a little too smooth. Low flavour impact. Not the worst lager I have had, but not great quality either.

Bottled. Vratislav Premium label Weak, hoppy aroma. Rather bland with notes of sweetness, and a little hoppiness. Not very dry nor bitter in the finish. One of the worse Czech pilsners I had.
