Just average, really. Better than many other industrial pilsners. But no aroma, and just above average pilsner taste.

Keg at the watering hole. Pours golden, nose is toffee, floral, grassy, taste is similar.

superspak (5803) - 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

Wezzielad (42) - Ilkley, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2017
Colour is very light yellow. Strong smell of malt and corn, a bit of a sweet smell. Taste has a bit of cereal in there, corn again. Pretty good for a lager.

3.1
Grumbo (3487) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2017
Tap at the Red Lion, Woodbridge. Poured a deep gold with a large frothy white head. Aromatic, floral and hoppy. Moderate sweetness and mid bitterness. Light to medium body, texture a little watery, average to soft carbonation.

harmasalim (46) - POLAND - SEP 12, 2017
Złociste, klarowne z obfitą pianą. W aromacie chmiel, trawa. W smaku metaliczne, słodowe. Takie średnie.

bilcho1 (30) - Burgas, BULGARIA - SEP 12, 2017
Can from Billa, drunk at home. Honey in colour with a frothy head that lasted a few minutes, little lacing. Complex bitterness from the first sip, some honey, citrus, and bread. Predominantly dry and crisp at the back of the palate after an initially creamy mouth feel. Medium carbonation which combined with the well-balanced hops keeps it refreshing. Overall, although not a massive pilsner fan, I have to admit that this is rather good.

2.2
biilz (125) - SPAIN - SEP 11, 2017
Классический горький пилзнер который я не люблю. Так что думаю что буду не слишком логичен в моей оценке. Думаю что любителям этого сорта его оценят.
