gnoff (10152) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 Draught at "Azza" in Prague, May 2006.
Clear golden color, big white creamy head. Nice hoppy scent. Very hoppy fresh taste. Medium bitterness. Lingering "spicy" hoppy aftertaste. One of the best non-microbrew beers available on tap in Prague!
33 cl bottle from Swedish "Systembolaget" on March 24.
Clear golden color with a nice creamy white head. Hoppy and a bit spicy scent, could be from Saaz hops. Good balance of malt and hops in the taste. A great Czech beer indeed.

Pours a transparent golden color with a fizzy whit head that dissapears fairly quickly. Light malt and hop aroma, nothing fancy, though I wasn’t expecting anything powerful. The flavor is light and crisp...mostly light malt...nothing complex...pretty barebones but in a good session beer kinda way. Light and crisp all the way through to the finish, and super easy to drink. A simple beer, and sometimes that’s what you want.

Gold body with a quickly diminishing white head. Fair head of hops and some light malts. Heavy carbonation in the body, hops are evident but also some corn. Minimal ending.

Mental (7) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 22, 2006 does not count
Bottle. It had a nice transparent gold color, with a nice white head, although a little fizzy, and it diminshed rather quickly, hence the 4/5. The nose was of hops, really harsh, and somewhat metallic.Rather fizzy. It had a slick light bitter and sour feel, not what you would expect of a pilsner. Overall it is a good beer, but not the best pilsner i had

Much better than American buweiser. Thick head of foam and fruity taste. Not anything too special compared to other pilseners in the Czech Republic.

0.5L Bottle Pour - Clear golden body with white frothy head. Aroma full of hops, grains, and a little fruit. Nice light bitterness leads to a dry finish. Lasting dry but mild enjoyable aftertaste. Quite thin body. Light and refreshing.

grat (432) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 12, 2006
Pretty good bohemian pilsener. Subtle golden beer. Frothy head that lasts and lasts. Nose is masterful. Paper thin bohemian bitterness. Slight chalkiness in the hops but mostly a floral, angostura style bitterness. Almost citrus but mostly a thin, lace-like bitterness. Tender. Rasor sharp sweetness that is subdued. Slight straw and sweet biscuit. Flower petal bitterness. Beautiul beer.
