2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle from Richmond Beverage in Richmond, VT (April 2008) served a few minutes out of the fridge from a Christoffel glass. Minimal white head dies quickly atop pale amber-gold body....fairly sweet aroma, decent malt base evident, very faint light grassy hops grow a little bit with warmth....body is on the sweet side also, not really crisp or dry enough and the hops just aren’t there; there’s also a hint of staleness and some cigarette ashiness, but with no visible date on the bottle, how am I to know how long it took to get here? Quite mediocre, but drinkable overall..

Big-bubblish diminishing white head on a bright straw golden body. Sparkling.

Taste; caramel malts, hops, grass, fresh fruit peel of red apple,
Well or too well carbonated, normal body, very easy-going.
Fresh hops in the finish, with some grains and malts. Nice brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours to a patchy but lasting head that laces generously. Dark golden color. Aroma is fresh sweet malts and honeylike floral and spicy hops: 100% Zatec (Saaz) according to label. Flavor comes in with a blend of sweet, clean malt and a spicy, tangy and crisp bitterness. Mouthfeel is light yet substantial. Overall, a very good Bohemian Pilsner.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The body has a bright golden color with some visible carbonation and very good clarity. The head is thin and foamy with an "egg shell white" color. It leaves only a little spotty lacing on the glass. The aroma is full of floral Czech hops with some light white bread malt. There is a clay like earthy quality with some very light metallic notes mixing with hops on the tongue. The hops are floral, grassy and a little bit leafy. They add a mild, pleasant bitterness to the flavor. Its body is light with a zesty texture and carbonation that tickles the tongue. The finish is quick, crisp and end on a mildly bitter note.

Clear copper beer with a foamy white head. Sweet malty aroma. Watery body. Crispy carbonation. Malty, toffee sweet, some honey notes. Pretty bulky lager. Still OK and nice to drink.

Review according to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 2B). Bottle 33cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: malt background with faint herbal hop aroma. APPEARANCE: golden yellow color and very clear. thin head with medium-low retention. TASTE: malty sweet balanced with some bitterness that does not linger. very faint hop flavours. finishes a bit dry. no esters. PALATE: medium-light body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: a sub-par czech pilsner. should have more hop character.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled, 500mL. Nose is very sweet, sugary really, pale malt is bright but grainy, lemony and faint green hops, but I can’t say I expect anything but a rough ride. Pours golden with a rocky-sudsy white head. Taste is as expected: low bitterness, strong sugary sweetness, grainy, lightly metallic, raw all over. Reasonable balance of malt and hops but the decision probably lands in the corner of the former. Light diacetyl in with some toffee. Mild lemon and grass. Light body somewhat refreshing, not enough to overcome the traditional central European rough lager character (by no means exclusive to Bohemia).

Review from notes on 06/1/10
Poured from bottle to perfect pint.
A: Straw, amazing clarity. Steady stream of lager bubble. No head. Granular yeast suspension noted in bottle.
S: Petite nose. Early hop additions give this a simple, grassy, bitter scent. Touch of grain.
T: Effervescent malt, slightly vanilla flavor. Good, easy finish. Great dinner beer.
M: Light, smooth lager. Easy carb, not offensive at all.
D: Best Czech lager I’ve had so far. Very drinkable. I would argue a win-win for anybody who enjoys lagers, and especially for a domestic macro drinker.
