3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours bright gold into a shaker. Bright white head subsides to skim surface. Malt and candy aromas. Crisp with bitter hops. Fairly quick in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2008 Nice white head that goes away pretty quickly. Aroma of nice floral hops mostly, with a tad bit of Moravian malt sweetness in their too. Nice. Flavour is almost identical to the aroma but with a tad bit more emphasis on the bitter Saaz hops. It’s my kind of Pils, in that the sweet, almost fruity malts prevent an overly-dry, hoppy finish and undertone to the beer. A very nice aftertaste of those pils malts, with a hint of Saaz. A decent one over-all IMHO, eminently drinkable, as a good pilsener should be. Worth a try if you’re into the Bohemian Pilsner, which I am. Don’t be put off by the low percentile.

Draught, at Crown Hotel, Bratislava, Slovakia.
Golden pilsner, served with a large bright shinny white head. Modest bitter aroma. Simple sugar flavours are just about held up by the bitterness. Narrow on the palate, with a short to moderate finish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear, gold with a light white head, disappearin quickly. Smell id preety grainy, some corn, yeast, and just a semblance of a little cinnamon. Maybe thats trying to be nice. Taste is very grainy as I was expecting, a little bitter, good amount of corn. Definitely drinkable, but nothing I’d drink again.

quite light, but ok, bohemian pils aroma with alcoholic note, bitter but slightly thin.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2007 Bottle. Beautiful clear pils with a huge white head. Not much in the nose, but it’s a clean not much. Flavor is most of the same, grassy and crisp. Palate is fantastic though, full-bodied and strong, making it a really drinkable beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle provided by Doboy.POured into a Pilsener glass, this showed a nice white head over a light gold, but the head collapsed pretty quickly. Some oxidation noticed in the aroma, also some light grainy notes, but not much else. Light body with a pretty clean palate. Flavor is undewhelming with a light maltiness, a fairly strong bitterness, and a bit of a a metallic aftertaste. Overall, the aroma, flavor, green bottle, and overseas origin lead me to believe that this wasn’t the freshest example. That’s why I tend to shy away from similar beers from Europe - jsut too risky with such a delicate style.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle - Pours clear bright yellow with a one finger, fading head. It has a light hop and grainy aroma. The mild flavor is of malt and possibly corn adjuncts. It’s very sweet. The body is thin and the finish clean. Overall? Meh.

25 oz bottle. Clean aroma with a hint of corn, a bit of grass, and the promise of hop. Brassy color with a vigorous white head that lasts. Starts medium mouthfeel, smooth, medium carbonation, and decent amount of hop. It’s a pilsener. Better than any number of pissy yellow lagers; not up to Urquell. Nice crisp, bitter finish, so it is up to the style.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Skunky scent. Pale straw like colour. Way too much head, very thick and long lasting. LEave a nice lacing though. Weak slightly skunky scent. Watery. Weak taste, some hobs a bit of malts. Overall watery and weak with an unpleasant aftertaste.
