Very nice golden beer, with a beautiful creamy head. Buttery aroma. Flavor is sweetish and malty. Very good. rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2003
Bottled. Very tasty, Saazy and bready beer. Unfortunately lacking in head, which mostly diminishes once poured. Long duration. Radek Kliber (7470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 14, 2003
On tap in Prague.
Dark gold hue, true looking white head. Medium hoped, very fresh gently sweet. Nice soft hopines with sweet malt. Very good pils nothing overstated nicely balanced.

On tap. I pretty like it. Pleasant aroma and taste, mildly bitter and great color. ClarkVV (6839) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Best before bottle 6/30/2006 from Sams in Chicago consumed on 5/12/06. Foamy, huge creamy-ivory head is well-retained, showing light, spotty lacing. Intensely burnished brass body is luminous and shows a flurry of bubbles. Coming after Podkovan, anything is going to smell crisp and highly attenuated (no, but seriously, I actually didnt mind Podkovan). Crisp, mineralic, just plain aromatic (perfect is the only word I can say) styrian goldings explode on the nose with a wonderfully crisp lager yeast. Seems like they lagered this one amply. The flavor is crisp, biting and with that true mineralic water that balances sweet pils malt so wonderfully. I don’t even think this is the most amazing Bohemian Pils, but this is just such an intense style, with such a strong sense of malt and beautiful hops that it’s hard to really relax and see this for what it is. larsniclas (7194) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2003
Oh yes! The special czech aroma and flavour; bread, some yeast, sweetish.
This is my kind of beer. frankenkitty (2012) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2005
Golden with constant, tiny effervescence and a short, white head. Heady sourdough yeasts in aroma with a big pile of cut wet grass. Dusty floral perfumes emerge as it rests, showing through to the initial flavor as a floral-sweetness. Breadiness follows with almost-caramel malts. Finish is light bitters and light burnt grain with a lingering sensation of having licked the grasscatcher. Buttery mouthfeel, but in a good way. This beer was surprisingly diverse and intriguingly delicious.
