thewolf (11097) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2006
Wonderful aroma of Saaz hops combined with some fruitiness. A great white head that diminishes quickly. Well carbonated. Very full-bodied for a Bohemian Pilsner, bitter but still light on the tongue. Great!

bhensonb (10688) - 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.

Leighton (10405) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2010
Bottle. Very basic Pilsener. Pours clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Grainy malt aroma with some corn and faint, crisp hops. Fairly sweet with some cereal malts and light bitterness. Light in body with average carbonation. Finishes with decent sweetness and crispness.
