UPDATED: AUG 27, 2011 Can. Golden beer with a small, white head. Weak, hoppy and malty aroma. The flavor has a nice hoppiness and maltiness. Ok body and a pleasant hoppy finish. Only problem with pilsners is that they are generally quite boring and too quaffable, but this is one of the good ones. Rating: 4-3-4-3-11-2.5. 060411

Bottle. It’s a clear, golden beer topped by a small, white head. It’s rather hoppy on the nose, with a maltyness in the back. Spiced, peppery and slightly grassy, piney hops. It’s malty and dry on the palate, a good bitterness chimes in towards the end. Quite spicy, piney hops. Well, it’s not my favorite pilsner in any way, but it’s straigthforward, quenching and also quite tasteful, so I really don’t know why I’m not drinking more of this. 110827

Clear and pure. Beautiful light colour and nice white head. Not too foamy. A simple and undramatic beer, but the aromatic Saazer hops really make the difference between an ordinary pilsener and this one. The taste doesn’t really stay with you that long, but it’s clean and crisp. The perfect beer for a hot day.

12-oz. bottle. Pours a bright, shiny gold with a patchy, edgy white head. Aroma is yeast (sour dough, sweat, earth) and malt (grain), hop notes. Moderately bitter and acidic, sour and sweaty yeast, grainy malt flavor with a slight sweet finish. Light bodied and slightly fizzy, clean finish.

A very good pilsener. What that filthy American swill wishes it could be. Light with a nice balance.

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.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2009 Can at the Seventh Annual Richmond Beer Dig on 03/08/2009. Very clear golden body with a medium creamy off-white head. Grain and faint honey aroma with some pilsener malt. Sweet honey and pilsener malt flavor. Medium body with moderate carbonation. 7/1/7/3/14 - 3.2 03/25/2006: Clear light golden color with a thin frothy white head. Sweet grainy aroma. Mild sweet grain flavor with some corn hints. 5/2/5/3/10 - 2.5

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 25, 2006
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

dj (620) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2006
UPDATED: APR 4, 2006 Bottle, 500ml. Small quickly diminishing head. Malty aroma with a moderately bitter finish. Quite fizzy. Not bad at all.
