Dudar (111) - Minsk, - JAN 30, 2012
Aroma of sulphur, hay, grain, bread crust, floral hops. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, noble hop flavour and snap bitterness. Malty, bready taste. Clean aftertaste. Nice pilsner, not more

Butelka z datą 04.09.2018. Kolor z złoty , piana średnioobfita szybko się redukuje. W aromacie słód diacetyl delikatny chmiel. W smaku pustawe ale przez diacetyl, jest to zredukowane, wyraźnie zaznaczona goryczka. Jak na kocerniaka przyzwoicie.

Craftakt (138) - Hannover, Lower Saxony, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2017
Klassisches Pils mit rundem Geschmack und hoher Drinkability. Kaum Aroma, wenn dann leicht malzig floral. Geschmack insgesamt mild wässrig mit Malzaromen und leichter Süße. Kurzer, unspektakulärer Abgang.

macca147 (402) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2017
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!

Daboch (111) - Gdansk, POLAND - OCT 15, 2017
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

4.1
superspak (5891) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 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.

On tap in Prague, Czech Republic. Classic pilsner, classic saaz aroma, the origins of the style. Like it
