Pretty rock solid for a cheap pils style brew. Pour is gold with carbonated white head. Nose of mild hops, malts, and grass. Flavor is not repulsive (the first 2 bottles actually were as they were both skunked but this rating is based on the lone good bottle) its like your standard pils. Overall bearable, when not skunked anywho.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Bottle. Copper color, medium white head. Mild aroma, with some malt, some hops. Flavor is semi-pleasant. A little malty, with good bitterness and carbonation. Crisp in finish. Has that Euro-rubber flavor that all pilsners seem to have. Bitter grass in aftertaste. Not bad for what it is.

KnutAlbert (6398) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2005
A top ranking pilsner. Subtle, but full of flavour. Moderate hops with a grapefruit tone. LArge, rocky head, nice golden colour. Moderately bitter finish. (Tested: draft version in Bratislava)

This is widely considered to be the best lager brewed in Slovakia ... and rightly so ... It’s a bit like a softer copy of the Pilsner Urquell, almost the same but slightly sweeter and therefore less dry ... I remember while living in Hong Kong someone visiting had the kindness to bring me a bottle of this and I truly enjoyed it ...

Beer #18 at the World Beer Festival in Durham, NC. This beer was pretty plain. No aroma to speak of. I’ll be honest, by beer #18 I was in no shape to be rating beers accurately, but it’s important for me to post the few notes I did make about the beers which I tasted beyond this point.

I was under the impression that a Heiny was a Heiny...This, however, proves me wrong. Though nothing to write home about, it’s a pretty solid pils. I expected the usual skunk phenom apon opening with the grassy-soap flavour. nah. Roasted hops with a readily good carbonation. Even somewhat roasted gold colour. About time I got a decent green bottle. I see below the emphasis on grassy flavours..damn, maybe they put the wrong pils in my bottle. booya! Hopefully Ill get to try the dark when im in the country this winter

.5 l green bottle. Well, the breakup of the Soviet bloc was a boon for this beer. You can rate all the Czech pils you want, but this is your choice if you want to "visit" the Slovakia part. Well, starts out with a bit of a skunky, stale hop odor. Pours a nice enough fluffy but ruly white head. Heineken pale in color. Still a decent pils malt taste. Kinda of heady alcohol. Rough stale hops palate that says this has been shipped too far in green bottles.

frankenkitty (1984) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2005
Golden and fairly flat, with a head that diminishes to a scummy film. Adjuncty/corny aroma with grasses and "Band-Aid". Thin and grassy flavor, light bitterness. Slightly burnt in aroma and flavor. Not much worth describing. (Another country knocked off, so that’s a plus.)

Bottle Buffalo Brew Fest. Golden color, white head. Grass and mildly skunky, light pale malt. Somewhat sweet, watch out for the cat piss. Light bodied. Beware the green bottle.

Golden body. White head. Has a grasy aroma. Dry feeling. Some malty flavor.
