Drake (10884) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville. Light amber color with a quickly disappearing head. Very grainy aroma with no detectable bitterness. Taste starts off grainy and becomes bitter, fruity and slightly metallic. Definite sweaty sock notes. Medium body.

Bov (10771) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 2, 2000
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2011 courtesy of Toni Hutter; canned - clear golden beer with a poor head retention; vaguely malty and corny aroma; medium-bodied and gently sticky; decently tasty and with a moderate bitterness; pretty long malty and aromatic finish - acceptable

daknole (10346) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Bottle. Better than I expected but not good. Yellow pour. White head. Malty as hell on the nose and flavor has a ton of malt with very faint hop balance. You wont catch me drinking this again.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 1, 2007
Bottle. 4,4%. Golden colour with avererage sized head. Aroma of malts, hops and a little sweetness. Flavour is malty and hoppy with some sweetness. A pleasent pilsner.

hopscotch (10214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Bottle... Clear, yellow lager with a whispy, white head. Good retention. The nose is mildly lightstruck, but notes of clover honey, lemon peel and straw make their way up and out of the glass. Crisp, medium-bitter flavor. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Finishes clean and refreshing. Thanks to growler for the bottle.

adnielsen (10145) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2010
Tasted from a 500 mL bottle purchased in Aurora, Colorado. Weak white/yellow head that disappears fairly quickly. Body is white/yellow similar to a Witbier but not as hazy. Aroma is a skunky pale lager but nasty almost like Cat Chow. Flavor also is a bit skunked but a fairly decent Pilsener. A tad bit fruity. I’m sure this would be better on tap in Slovakia, but based on my bottle, not a great Pilsener.

hopdog (10105) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle. Poured a yellow color with a white head. Citrus, dried grass and generic sweetness.

kevnic2008 (9999) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2012
Light gold pour. Mild hoppy taste, very smooth finish. Grassy spruce hop. Not particularly interesting, but a nice refresher.

Sammy (9826) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2004
Another unimpressive LCBO import. Lighty saaz hopped. Malty sweet, dry and sour finish, creamy. Fizzy
