On tap at brewery in Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic. Pours a pale biscuity gold with a thin white head. Aroma: biscuity malt, mild citrus and sweet malt. Taste: biscuity and sweet malt, mild citrus flavours, mild grassy/herbal flavours. Basic flavour palate. Moderate carbonation. Thin bodied. Mild sweetness. Easy drinking, and quite tasty when fresh - not quite as good quality when bottled in my experience. Not an amazing beer, but perfect when coupled with hearty Czech or German food!

Złociste piwo z obfitą pianą. Aromat chmiel, trawa, trochę kwiatów. W smaku bardziej słodowe trochę goryczki chmielowej. Piwo te sprzed 15-20 lat wydaje się że było lepsze doguzuyar (11) - Istanbul, TURKEY - OCT 9, 2017

330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 1/6/2018. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a small dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, white bread dough, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, white bread dough, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, white bread dough, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from bitterness. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, fairly crisp, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is an awesome Czech pilsner! All around great robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the balancing bitter/drying finish. Perfectly executed style example. Never too bitter/drying, and very flavorful for the ABV. Clean pils malt flavors with balancing Saaz hops. A highly enjoyable offering, one of the best I have had in the style.

Butelka. Klasycznie. Słodowo, zbozowo z nutką tytoniową. Lekki skunks, lekki karton. Dość treściwe. loscovar (723) - Trieste, ITALY, Villeneuvette, FRANCE - SEP 16, 2017

Colour is very light yellow. Strong smell of malt and corn, a bit of a sweet smell. Taste has a bit of cereal in there, corn again. Pretty good for a lager. Grumbo (3979) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2017
