Nice golden color with a surprisingly clean aroma. Rather plain tasting but a quality example of the style for the money.

A golden yellow beer when poured.The aroma was skunky.The taste was a real bad impersonation of a Heineken.The finish was both bitter and sour.Youi can keep this in Europe.

Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Tasted in a dimple mug. Tasted at 10C. Relatively dark yellow ./ golden in colour with a thin white sustained head. Aroma of hoppy bitterness with a slightly estery smell. Flavour is fairly malty. Evident sweetness with an acrid bitter finish.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 15, 2003
The color on the pour is a limpid deep gold with a generous bright white head that is frothy in texture and the residual lace a quite thin sheet to cover the glass. Nose is citrus crisp, fresh and clean, sweet with the start also sweet and fairly well malted, top is middling in feel. Finish is brisk in its carbonation and the hops mild but pleasant in their spicy bite, quite dry aftertaste, drinkable at any rate.

A nice color (they don't call it Golden for nothing) and a decent white head gives way to a fairly bitter taste, though not too unpleasant. Better than your average pilsner, but only slightly so.

Light gold color, decent aroma (Hoppy) and a crisp taste. However I had this on tap while in the Slovak Capital, Bratislava, so I can't comment on the import/bottle version.

Remarkably transparent appearance, the white-head is also remarkably diminishing! When sniffing, a skunk approaches, I don't smell it, I just feel its presence, it's not there yet, but it simply *could* be further. Besides, it's pretty grainy. Taste is malty, not an mL of originality out of 500, malty, but everything is restrained and too subtle which makes for a boring journey. This is at the other end of the tastiness continuum. The palate is decent though although very carbonated, one word comes to mind: Next?

Strifeless, creamy malt in slightly astrigent hops...Eviscerated sweet cereal in an inconsequential body...There are better things to do with my time...

Dorwart (2452) - 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.

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.
