1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
My first beer from this country, and a disappointing one it is. I did have some higher hopes, but alas... Very plain and boring, pours a pleasant golden amber color. Balanced, but one-sided and slightly bitter. Lacked any kind of body, or taste, no real flavors are present.

Nothing to this pilsener. Very plain. Some hoppy, malt, and bitter flavor. Finishes bitter.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden yellow hue. Frothy white head. Spicy floral nose. Very smooth and drinkable, but lacking any sort of depth. Pale sweet biscuity malts, light to medium bodied, very effervescent, finishing with a slight hint of hops. Blah.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bright light golden, faint white head. The nose is slightly skunked, some grass and quite sugary...just a touch of phenols as well? The body is lightly spritzed and sweet with a light hop bitterness. A light crisp bitterness continues on and ends the beer. Dries a little at the end.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours the standard yellow with a nice white head. Moderate hopping in the aroma (grassy floral?) and medium bitterness. A nice beer but not unlike every other Pilsener.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Yellow with a bit of burnt gold, the color I dislike in a beer. Big bubbles, Houdini head. Aroma not bad, definitely grainy. The taste emphasizes typical pilsner malts, not too watery, but the hops barely show up for the party. Not bad, but not exciting. Purchased to pick of Slovakia on the list of countries.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Has a golden/yellow color with a good bit of carbonation and a skunky smell. Taste is kind of Heinekenish, but not as skunky. Overall not too bad, but by far not a great beer. I would be interested to try this on tap in Slovakia to see the difference

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
American Bottled version. Light yellow, bubbly with lots of foamy head.
Dosent smell like much. Taste is fluffy, bubbly and has that weak stale hops flavor of a poor tasting lager. I kept giving it a chance. I suppose you could make the case that it tastes like biting into an apple (one of those small red/green ones). But its not acidic or very bitter, just fluffy and weak/watered down. I ended up pouring it out. Disgrace to my ancestral homeland. blah.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light yellow in color with a frothy white head. No distinguishable aroma. Light malt and apples maybe. Smooth slighlty bitter finish. Overall, not bad, but I had hoped for more.
