Bottled. I must say one of very few light pilseners I enjoy.

On tap at the Czech Inn Dublin. Pours a darker gold with a full white head. Aroma is sour mash and grapes. Taste is sweet malt, hops and a nice mellow end. Impressed.

i like this beer, but it is better from tap, as from bottle or can. shortly, this beer must be fresh. kelt, zlaty bazant, heineken and amstel are my favorite beers

Smells of Pils malt sweetness and spicy Saaz-like hops with some obvious skunking (green bottles!!). Still not bad though. The flavor is right there also, first the malts make themselves known, but then the minerally hop bitterness comes in and gives the beer a drying impression. Overall, not that much different that some other green bottle Pils’, but maybe not so one-dimensional as Urquell and a bit smoother on the palate. Underrated.

0,5L green bottle, from Systembolaget Luleĺ Sweden. Fluffy head which diminishes on the golden amber body, only a thin spotted layer is left. Scents of hops, grains, citric, apple, and malt. Taste; hops, grains, lots of malts, herbs and spices. Mouthfeel is good, and carbonation does not disturb, and it’s not watery. Ends with bread, roasted malts, dough, and only faint hints from cardboard. Overall a quality czech pilsener. Shared at home with my wife while she cooked salmon with lemon pepper and basil.

Thick head dissipates fairly quick. Malty and slightly sweet aroma. Sweet and full bodied taste settles to a slightly more moderate finish. Fairly typical for a pilsner. Very enjoyable.

Dark golden beer with a light head and a fruity and dry aroma. The flavour is caramel hopped and quite dry. Overall a good Eastern European lager.

Bottle. Aroma is comprised mainly of hops, similar to that of Budweiser, but stronger and without the unpleasant corny/grainy/yeasty taste of American macros like Bud and Coors. Taste is similar to that of a Heineken (minus the slight yeast detectable in a Heineken), which is not all that suprising, seeing how the brewer is a Heineken company. The hops are quite plesant, dominating over any malts, but not to the point where it becomes too hoppy for a pilsener. Some malt is slightly detectable, with very slight yeast notes. Carbonation is very good, lasting throughout the 1 pint bottle. Definitely a repeat pilsener buy. Quite delicious and refreshing when very cold!
