I tried this beer on July 25, 2007 after purchasing it from my local LCBO store. My particular bottle is 5.0% ABV.

The beer poured a translucent gold colour, darker than most North American lagers. The head was quite large and quite dense but disappeared quickly leaving a little lacing on the side. The aroma is hoppy with some yeasty tinges. The mouthfeel is slightly thick with ample carbonation and medium-bodied. The taste is very much pilsener like, but not as good as some of the common Czech Pilseners in my opinion.

Fairly good beer. Not as good as Urquel but drinkable. Pours clean golden with a small white head.

goozen (3732) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2007
Bottle 0,5ltr bought in Karlovy Vary, Czech Rep: Like more beers from Middle Europe its has that grassy smell and taste at the start of drinking the liquid. It will change in a very drinkable brew.

krysztofar (344) - belleville, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2007
16.9 rich golden color with lots of carbonation in a clean looking lager with a just off-white head. crisp aroma of cereal grains light malt sweetness and bright hops. very clean dry finish without much hop bite but a decent european malt character before it comes to an unimpressive finish.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Found this beer somewhere... Probably the Cellar’s. At least it’s a new country rating! Solid pilsner nose - malty with very faint hops. Semi sweet malt flavor with plenty of carbonation this lightly colored beer.

Skyview (5464) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 5, 2007
From a 12-oz bottle shared by JK, this beverage pours a clear golden pale brew with a fast dissolving white head that diminishes to a whtie ring. Aroma of light pilsener malt, some toasted bread, and fresh grassy hops. Taste is light highly carbonated and light hoppy bitterness. Finish is near clean with a slight grassy hop aftertaste.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 19, 2007
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear golden color. Disappearing bubbly white head. Aroma was of skunky hops and husky grain. Those skunky hops come out again in the flavor, but there isn’t much in the way of a malt backbone. Similar to pilsner urquell, but not nearly as well balanced. Reminded me of Heineken.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2010 A thirst quencher of a pilsener. Available anywhere you can shake a stick at in Bratislava and Prague. Nothing really stands out with this one other than an nice balance of body and some sweet grassyness. I must admit tho, I drank a good many of them. 2010 update. After having two of these in quick succession yesterday, I came to the realization that this beer may just be the prettiest I’ve ever seen in the glass. Its so bright it nearly emanates light on its own. Hops are subdued and appear as if by magic on the tongue.
