Swing-top bottle (with added yeast): Straw golden coloured, hazy, big lasting rocky head; malty nose with some hints of yeast (vanilla) and hops; starts malty, soon switches over to a sharp, bitter, not very aromatic, but longer lasting aftertaste; kind of unharmonic, the fruity, yeasty nose and the malty start stand in an extreme contrast to the sharp aftertaste; in this "Holiday Lager" /Svatecni Lezak the typical "moreish" bohemian aftertaste is onlyv hard to find. dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2005
Bottled. Clear golden colour. Medium, foamy head. Flowery, yeasty aroma with tiny hints of vegetables. Dry, hoppy taste. Tastes rather like a northern German pilsner to me. Nice dry, hoppy and clean taste. DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2005
Rich malty aroma, hazy amber, being unfiltered, pours a good sized white head. Very malty flavour at first, with an enjoyable hops finish. Extremely well balanced, great carbonation, delightful mouthfeel, great bitterness. Smashing! Radek Kliber (7487) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 15, 2005
Thank You NorthYorkSammy.
Ok, Bernard Sváteční Ležák is not Pilsener more like high end, unfiltered, unpasteurized premium lager. Unique in make. Sammy (12844) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2005
Aroma: Soft local way prepared malts with only subtle hop character behind. The mouthfeel texture is most interesting due to its delicacy and live yeast .Amber gold, well carbonated, pleasing crown. Flavours/feel: Great silky smooth front, perfect finish a blending. Brewmaster did great job designing this one. Subtle and complex. Great long lasting malt/hop finish. Superb lager!
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2005 Unpasturized. Delicate. Wisely designed bottle to preserve freshness. Something added to speed up aging, pushing Radek’s translation of the description. Initial great large head. Easy drink. No spectacular appearance and light mouthfeel. Pleasantly aggressive carbonation. Yet the malts and hops and all work gracefully together in a complex drink that grows on you with each sip. Thanks for bringing back Georgina.

Golden, tanned lacing head, pretty nitrogen bubbles.
Initially fat bitterhop nose which dusts over after a bit.
Solid malt base, light fruityness and a proper grassy bitterhop finish coating the back of the throat. Good stuff.
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2010 Draft. A hazy golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of straw and hops. The flavor is sweet with primary notes of straw, leading to a dry bitter finish. Nate (4296) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2004
