Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 7, 2007
The beer decamps the 500ml bottle a clear golden amber with a two-fingered creamy white head, the head settles slowly, leaving a thick sheet to cover the glass. Nose has a dominate malt sweetness, citrus crisp, start has a pleasant malt profile, slight hop bite at the back, top moderate in feel. Finish has modest acidity, the hop delectably spicy, quite dry and a smooth drinking beer, cannot say “Pilsners” are my favorites, but a good ones like this is always a pleasure to sample.

Bottle. Nice beautiful bright color. Aroma of noble hop with notes of pepper. Nice white head with good lacing. Decent body with mild sweetness followed by earthy hop note in the finish. Not bad for an Euro import that may be dated.

Radek Kliber (6709) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 4, 2007
Bottle 500 ml
Rated as Bright Lager
Appearance :Deep golden lager with large thick and dense top, good lace shown.
Nose : Soft meadow flowers with mineral hints of bohemian hops, light fruity peach like over note.
Flavour/Palate : Golden clean malt base , soft silky like texture . Light gently sourness with soft yet well presented hop touch. Fairly delicate substance , sweet helles like base with Zatec hop profile . Refreshing and tasty, perhaps a bit to light even for such style.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 3, 2007
Pours a transparent lightly effervescent golden with a thin, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of semi-sweet pale malt with a decent balance of fresh, grassy Saaz hops. Body starts with a pleasant mild pale malty sweetness along with some earthy bittering hops towad a crisp, very drinkable finish. A decent pils.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Bottle, pours a sparkling yellow with a white head. Taste is of some lighter malts, a bit of hops, nothing very domininate in the aroma or taste. It was an ok brew and a dissapointing pilsner.

dwyerpg (4918) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Really not much aroma but looks nice. Flavor has a good dryness up front. Finishes a little fruity and funky, not really the best. Still, decent stuff. I think the funk is some butter notes coming through.

bu11zeye (12353) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of florals, light perfume, and some lemon. Flavor of light herbs, corn, and some butter. A clean, crisp bohemian pilsener.

Ernest (6834) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, husks, bread), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A fairly simple, husky example. Not impressed.

bhensonb (12749) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 11, 2007
Aroma of noble hop and more than expected malt. More of a German pilsener? Slightly orange tinged golden color with a white head that ringed. Medium body with moderate, near creamy, carbonation. Flavor starts sweet, balanced by bitter. I’d say noble hop. Agree it is a bit bready. The finish is lightly sweet, quickly dropping to persisting bitter. Perhaps a slight sour note in the top of the mouth at the end. Good beer, but seems a whit more German than Bohemian.
