3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is tasty and very Czech in character. Golden color and a very large, thick white head. It is a very good-looking beer. It is good they put it in a brown bottle and it seems to have traveled well. Lots of saaz hops in the aroma. Flavor is bitter, but this is probably the maltiest Bohemian Pilsner I have had anywhere. Also a bread, dough like flavor. Smooth on the palate. Flavors are enhanced by taking a larger sip, and the bigger the sip, the more hops are in the flavor. Light overall, I could sit down a drink a lot of this. Pour a few in a tall glass; this is thirst quenching and extremely drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden, straw yellow pour is as transparent as water. Mildly buttery mint and hay aroma with minor traces of urine and candy. Heavily carbonated body is immediately a little flavorless, eventually evolving into a blend of salty-sweaty and crisp grassy flavors. The finish is clean with a bit of a spoiled hop edge. An entirely likeable pilsner.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I made sure to get a bottle with the little tag dammit. THE CONSUMER WINS EVERY TIME THEY POP OPEN A BOTTLE OF VYSKOVSKE!!!!! Between that and a ridiculously fat rabbit holding several beers in each hand, this tag alone makes the beer worth it. The rabbit is in the "VYSKOVSKE ZONE." Ok. Clear bronze, large white pillowy head, decent lacing and retention. Aroma is very light bread, honey and light grassy hops. Flavor starts out bitter and ends smooth and watery. Enjoyable but no Urquell.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright gold appearance with an average size white head and scant lacing. Flowery, fresh cut hay aroma with some tart fruit notes to round it out. Well balanced taste with malty, multi grain flavors complimented by the dry, bitter, mildly spiced hops. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel with a crisp, dry finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale amber body, with a quickly-disappearing head. Thin lacing. Mild toffee, malt, and hops aroma. Flavor is nicely balanced between the malts and hops, with a nice bitterness lingering in the end. If you’re a fan of this style, then you’ll probably like this beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a two finger lumpy white head that fades to a thin layer leaving no lace. Light clear amber color. Light carbonation and light-medium bodied. Slight hoppy nose. Starts balanced but hops assert giving a bitter but not a long lasting aftertaste. $1.79 for a 12oz bottle from John’s Grocery Iowa City, IA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sparkling gold, creamy white head. Soft hoppy nose of florals and grassy tones with lighter shades of bread and sweet toffee. Well balanced throughout with notes of all the above. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, light bitter finish. A very nice drinkable pils....

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a fine beer, wasted on those here who do not really like or understand Bohemian pilsner. Great sweet apple notes hemmed in with the good, flinty Czech hop finish. The malt is nice and bold, rich, then lean, then fruity, then austere, but the hops do such an incredibly excellent job. You know, the hops act a lot like those in Rochefort, believe it or not. A bit less complex than the Great Herold. It remains, however, a beer that I will return to again and again.
