Bottle. Dark golden with a light coppery shade. Full of large bubbles, fine head. Wonderfull Zatec (Saaz) hop bouquet. Flavour is hop, grass, with a taste dominated by hops.

yespr (46789) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2007
From tap. Pours golden yellow, slight hazy and with a white head. Aroma is classic pilsener malt with a corn note. Flavour is soft malty, slight sweet with a good bitterness into the finish. Good brew.

A golden beer with an OK head. It has an aroma of hops - and a flavor of hops, slightly bitter. Definately a good beer, but if I want a czech pilsener I rather want Urquell.

joergen (28772) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2005
Draught at Ølbaren. Clear yellow coloured with a white head. Aroma of malts with notes of fruits and hops. Flavour of malts and hops with notes of brew mash. Boring !

Tapped. Yellow/golden colour, decent white foamy head. Bready/hoppy nose with hints of grassiness. Flavour is quite hoppy with huge peak after a few seconds, the finish is quite "vegetably". Bittersweet aftertaste and leaves the mouth a bit sticky.

Nicely hopped example of a decent lager, very refreshing. Pales in comparison to other Czech lagers and pilsners, but still very drinkable.

cgarvieuk (25391) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 17, 2012
Bottle at home ... as part of the Mass (well probably just me and Ian) online tasting ... golden yellow ... thin white head ... metalic grassy hop nose ... all i dislike in a lager nose ... sweet grassy front .. light herbal tones ... hayish ... light bitter ... really i thought this one might be better than most lagers ... but its really not me at all... well who would have thought this wasnt a rerate ...

omhper (25378) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2003
Bottled. Golden coloured, average head. Bready nose with a light touch of oily hops. Light bodied and extremely drinkable, yet firm. Balanced bitterness.

Papsoe (25060) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Incredibly beautiful full golden colour with a rather huge head. Fresh nose of barley. Lots of sweet malt and less bitternes than for instance Urquell. Velvety soft body. Having tried this on tap at the brewery assures me, that this simply must be the world’s best pilsener. No less.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch hopfig malzig, grasig, getreidig. Geschmack hopfig bitter, malzig, getreidig.
