The_Osprey (3031) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2015
500ml bottle from Waitrose Richmond, into Pilsner Urquell Stein. Golden yellow, clear, sparkling, small white head doesn’t endure. Aroma is very clean, cereals, light chlorinated water. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, smooth. Taste is light and crisp, tthin bready malt, some dry metallics, tangy finish. Underflavoured but nothing offensive at all.

BlackHaddock (4840) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2015
Green 500ml bottle: BBD 31 Jul 15. Poured at home on 17 Jan 15. Not overly impressed, and beers from Pivovar Herold before and liked them. Looked your normal Pilsner/Lager, golden, light and bright: on top the regular unlasting snow white crown. Aroma was corn syrup sweet and so was the taste with very mild hints of lemon grass. It was taken in a blind tasting with a Staropramen brewed beer and a German Memminger brewed one: this can out the worst score wise.

MichaelAwesome (5552) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2014
Classic czech one from Waitrose with a big german touch. I´d say this one has some grass and hay with bread and some vanilla. Bit it also is a bit light in look with some grainy moments which reminds me more a german pils. Not bad at all and really easy drinkable.

Bottle from Waitrose in East Cowes. Pours out in a clear deep golden colour with low, steady head and medium body. Aroma of mild hops and grass. Taste of medium bitter hops, light malt, grains, grass, citrus fruits and bread. Refreshing and crisp finish. Drinkable, yet nothing special.
