hershiser2 (2521) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2005
Gold with a small head. Lotsa bubbles. Smells of grasses and light malts. Taste isn’t bad, surprisingly. It’s grassy, but crisp and drinkable, rather than being bland and ordinary. Now, I wouldn’t drink this on a regular basis, but if I HAD to, I wouldn’t mind (too much).

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 28, 2005
Tasted 28/09/2005. 330ml bottle at Cellar-Vate tasting. Snappily dressed in green, embossed, bottle and frilly label. Not much going for it after that. Thin, pale gold, a little stale and quite watery. Hints at some nice juicy, honey-like, malt and lemony, zingy, hops but they are almost undetectable. Would love to gve it another go fresh. I never even tried it in the Czech Republic.

rederic (3293) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2005
Bright golden honey hue, with soft foamy white head, with pale malt, toasty malt, floral hops aromas follow through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp pale malt, fruity note, floral hops, leading towards a smooth maltiness finish.

Fukito (1027) - Santiago, CHILE - SEP 25, 2005
500 cm3 Can - September 05 Pours pale golden colour with a nice white head. Aroma is flowery and sutile. Taste is somewhat sweet and slightly bitter at the end. Overall a nice Pilsner, but i prefer PU for a more intensive experience.

Quinten (1062) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2005
15 years ago, the pilsener urquel was the only one fore me from czech beer, but now with 4 other czech pilsener budweiser budvar is one of the best.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 20, 2005
Pours a yellow color with a decent size that goes away quickly. Sweet malt in the aroma but really not much going on. Flavor is lightly malty with just a hint of hops. Watery finish. Doesn’t really do much for me.

Balanced a little to the bitter side, aroma of malt with a hint of Saaz. I would drink this as a lawnmower beer if I could afford to.

D (577) - Gdynia, POLAND - SEP 13, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2006 Golden colour, big bubbly head that goes off rather fast. Pretty nice pilsner smell, the taste is also good - nice bitterness, hops flavour, maybe slightly too much carbonation. Good pils anyway
