Christos (5781) - Arnhem, - JAN 28, 2013
500 ml bottle, bought in Germany under the name Breznak Original Bohmisch Pils. Poured into a footed pilsner glass. Colour is very deep yellow-golden, with something more of two fingers of foam. White and soapy, with very good retention and heavy lacing left on the glass. A constant stream of bubbles is rising to the surface. Aroma is quite hoppy, but not as much as I would expect from a Czechish pilsner. Some light malt aroma too, along with adjuncts. Rice, maybe? Nice bitter taste. Unfortunately, very metallic at first, along with this adjunct flavour, but it gets much better on the aftertaste where the hops really shine, with a long finish as well. Medium thickness on the body, very dry on the palate and just the right amount of carbonation. I really liked this one, very good.

kraddel (8122) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2017
Bottle as part of a czech beer birthday gifbox. Thnx ! Pours clear blonde, small white head, much visual carbonation going on. Foam is rather instable. Smell has some maltsyrup aspects, not too much of the other components that should be there in a czech lager (noble hops, yeast , .. are absent to me ) Taste is refreshing. bit bitter, but in a very, very unnatural, almost clinical way. harsh alcohol notes ( not boozy, just the actual harshness of alcohol is shining in trough the taste ) not much else going on, unfortunately. Taste dies of instantly at the end. Not a good one, i’m afraid.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2017 Can from systembolaget. A really decent lager to be honest. A few rough edges where alcohol appears quite bluntly but i find myself keep returning to have one more tasting sip so must be a good’un. For the price in Sweden, it’s got to be one of the best lagers on offer. Related. Taken down 3.3 to 3. A little rougher and cheaper tasting this time. But still decent for the price.

L: -pours a clear golden with a medium,foamy, white head -medium to high carbonation visible S: -grainy,honey,bready,spicy,oranges T ,lingering bitterniss F: -medium carbonation -light to medium body O: Considering how cheap this is in Germany it’s a really decent czech Pils. Aside from the rough bitterniss (byproduct of using Hop extract) it’s very drinkable.

En klar og ren pilsner med de smaker og dufter som forventes. En liten unoter av søt mais. Herlig bitterhet på slutten.
