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.

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.

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

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.

Light yellow in color with a frothy white head. No distinguishable aroma. Light malt and apples maybe. Smooth slighlty bitter finish. Overall, not bad, but I had hoped for more.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2004 I'm shocked that importing this beer into the USA could be profitable. Weak, fizzy, yellow. Much better than budmillercoors.

Slightly skunky aroma, but underneith i can make out a distinct apple smell. The slight skunkiness persists in the taste but there is also a bitterness, and a taste reminiscent of grains is in there too. After a minute the lingering bitterness has turned somewhat sweet in my mouth.

Clear golden body with minimal white head. Aroma is sweet (corn?), apple juice, slightly skunky. Taste is very mild -- medium sweet, bit of grassy in finish, and I can swear that I taste the alcohol. Light-medium body.

I've had better bohemian pilseners. Slight skunk in the aroma. Looked pretty, golden with a large white head. Flavour wasnt all that skunked went well with the hot day that it was. But nothing impressive.
