pivnizub (8576) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2005
Golden colour, firm,white froth; thin hoppy (herbal,grassy) nose with some grainy notes; bitter-malty beginning, thin bodied, short thin bitter-sweet aftertaste with some unpleasant metallic/medical(?) notes. This golden pheasant turns out to be a grey vulture........

FatPhil (8564) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 14, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2011 500ml bottle (Travellers, Tallinn) (5:2:4:2:6=1.9)
Slightly gingery lager aroma, some lemon. Similar taste, very lagery. Drying, slightly unpleasant palate, metallic. Some weetabix in the finish. Slimy. Not actually nasty, but not actually good.
Rerate: 500ml can (Stockmann, Tallinn) (6:2+:5:3-:10=2.6)
Sweet fruity citrussy aroma, a bit orangy ad lomony. Pale. Head settles slowl to a scummy ring. Fullish palate, but not as full as the Hacker-Pschorr Munich Gold we just had. Very simple czech style lager. A touch of ginger at times. But a bit boring. Finish only hs simply dry hops, dryness is refreshing. It’s surprisingly good for a macro lager. The nimbu masala test brings out only a hint of alcohol, and definitely no puke.

daknole (8537) - 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.

hopscotch (8529) - 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.

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle. Poured a yellow color with a white head. Citrus, dried grass and generic sweetness.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2006
Bottled. A golden coloured beer which has a decent white head on first pouring. The aroma and taste are very typical of the style. Floral Saaz hops and a little grassiness. Ok and quite refreshing, but this style really doesn’t set the World alight.

NielsenRatings (8273) - 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.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2004
Another unimpressive LCBO import. Lighty saaz hopped. Malty sweet, dry and sour finish, creamy. Fizzy

Drake (7940) - 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.

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
GT2 (7875) - Carlsbad, California, USA - AUG 31, 2008
Bottle. This is not 12%...it’s 5%. Pours like a light lager with a small head. Aroma is like a typical bad import with some grass and weak hops. Too sweet from the malt and little or no body- mostly grass flavored water. Very boring and too expensive. Simply another disappointing exotic import. A totally butchering of the Bohemian Pilsner style. Would not recommend.
