2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled (as Vyskovské Czech Beer). Deep golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is sweet malts, hay, some hops as well as mild notes of fruits. Flavour is quite much the same, a very bulk feeling to it.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Hazy pale orange color with a light white head. Aroma is bit bready, and tends toward mild citrus rather than grass. Near medium body with sharp, light carbonation. Flavor is slightly bready, and the hops are almost like zest. Could be a touch of diacetyl. Finishes astringent, and very nicely hoppy. Not a typical BoPils, but a really tasty lager.

(12oz bottle) Fluffy, medium white head atop clear amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, light honey. Taste is medium sweet, bread/honey, some grassy/herbal. Light-medium body, low carbonation, quite drinkable. On the malty side for the style, but the hops do make an appearance.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 19/20
12 oz brown bottle, no date.
It pours a nice deep darker gold that looks unfiltered. The head is big, fluffy, and white and forms a dome around the rim of the glass, slowly receding with some intricate lacing. Nearly a spot-on appearance.
Smell is grainy with a deep sugary malt scent. The hops linger in the background with a slight spiciness. It’s not skunky, the proper way to enjoy a pilsener.
The taste follows the nose, nice robust grains with a kiss of hops that lend a balancing bitterness. The mouthfeel is richer than what you would find in most Czech pilseners.
This one seems true to style, not watered down, I like it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malty aroma, yellowish with a bit of white head. Initially creamy / malty tasty and satisfying. Draws you in on a warm Fall day, but then a metallic and wet old paper finish. Perhaps the bottle was older than it should be, I don’t know I just bought it. Then I saw the other reviews confirming this. A below par Czech but still worth trying if you admire the country, the style.
