nick76 (4368) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2006
The aroma is grainy and a tiny bit skunky with a grass like hops. The appearance is golden and a little dark for a pilsner. The head is small. The flavor is unimpressive. There is grainy malt and a mild unpleasant bitterness. The palate is typical for a pilsner. Dry finish. Maybe this beer is hurt by the long journey or maybe it’s just not so good.

(Bottle 50 cl) Hungarian version credited to "Amstel Sörgyar".
Beautiful, clear fully golden with a creamy, white head. Fat aroma of malt with notes of banana - as in a Hefe. Good, full body with plenty of sweet malt. Limited bitterness. Red label. 120106

mustangjoe (183) - redondo beach, California, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Bottle. Typical clear golden color of a pils. This bottle did have a slight skunkiness to it, but the hoppy, grassy aroma was present as well. Northing skunky about the flavor though, a nice, crisp, good tasting pilsner. I have a feeling, if I had this one fresh on tap, I would like it even more.

this is not a super beer, but is a typical beer for the region Czechia and Slovakia. They just make a good pilsner and that is good enough for me.

Who doesn’t love pheasants? Beautiful birds! Used to roam wild and free in my home town. Glorious plumage, gentle creatures. And who wouldn’t enjoy a beer made from them? Wait...it’s not?...okay, ...that’s cool...anyway... very clear, pale golden/amber appearance, nice, fluffy, snow-white head... Aroma: skunkaroo! Sour lemon. Bad. Foul. Putrid. Ick. Taste: Must I? strong, fullish, fierce, grainy, and very bare thereafter....not much to brag about, Slovakia...blah, bleh, blech...Oooo, ish, ugh...not pleasure-enducing by any stretch. Light bodied, dry finish, grainy all the way, with an unpleasant flavor, that never satisfies... Does anyone like this stuff? Why? And why did I waste $2 on it that could’ve gone to online downloads of Falco’s Greatest Hits? ("One Night In Bangkok makes a Hard man humble"...or is it, hustle? that’s why I need it!) These questions and more will be answered ...never...or, ...will they?

Actually better than I had anticipated. Grassy aroma, sl sweet initially some corn presnet it appears. Decent grassy and dry finish. Not bad.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2005
500 mL green bottle available from Armanetti’s. Clear golden lager having a small white diminishing head with spare lacing. Clean light sweet nutty malt aroma. Soft carbonation. Medium bodied that starts dry with light sweet malt flavor and finishes dry with light hop bitterness. Excellent refreshing tasty crisp beer.

Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2005
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 (6621) - 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)
