(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 (7164) - 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 (13617) - 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.

heemer77 (5242) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 11, 2007
Deep gold body with a large off white head. The aroma has some nice notes of bread and earthy root vegetables like turnips. The taste is a little sharp with hints of raw potatoes and some apple core. There is a decent hoppy finish with a hint of orange marmalade. A nicely made pils with a light refreshing body.

BelgianBeerGal (3672) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2007
33cl Bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with small white head. Light nose that reminded me of cooking flour. Flavor was creamy/buttery. Suggest better Bohemians.

bluevegie (3070) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2007
Compact white head on a clear golden body. Fairly light floury nose. Notice the hops mainly in the taste, fairly simple but true to style.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 30, 2007
bottled. slight mineral aroma, light texture, moderate bitterness but quite muted saaz character. as with most other czech beers, zatec bottled is nothing like having it fresh on tap

From a bottle poured golden with a fair amount of head. Nice flavor, a litttle bitter, with a good finish.
