MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 9, 2003
Strifeless, creamy malt in slightly astrigent hops...Eviscerated sweet cereal in an inconsequential body...There are better things to do with my time...

Dorwart (2359) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2003
Big head with little carbonation. Aroma of rotting tomatoes and some hops. Color is a thin pale gold. Flavor is very mile and mellow with maybe a flavor of bread. Pretty bland but not offensive. Finish is malty with a slight metalic aftertaste. It was cheap and was in one of those "import" variety packs. Not worth the time.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2003
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.

beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Nothing to this pilsener. Very plain. Some hoppy, malt, and bitter flavor. Finishes bitter.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 30, 2003
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.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2003
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.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2003
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.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2003
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.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 19, 2003
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

ClarkVV (3891) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 13, 2003
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.
