Nice clean flavor, although a bit mild in my opinion; the grassy hops do come through and blends well with the malts. A well made and enjoyable example of this style. Get it in the large 500ml brown bottle as I did.

Perhaps its Bias. It’s Czech, I am of Czech origin. I tried hard to open my mind when the old man told me its one of the best. i tried hard to prove him wrong... I’m Still trying. I have lived in Vancouver, Canada for about 25 years now, trying to convince myself that Canada has a lot to offer in the beer industry. And it does, but there is something about this beer, that makes me keep wanting more.

tezarak (97) - Lengnau, SWITZERLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Poured from a 50cl can at home. A very clear copper. Malt and cardboard aroma. Sweet malty flavour. Medium-low bitterness but lingers nicely. Medium to medium-high body. Medium to medium-low carbonation.

Tezminator (123) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2017
Faint Aroma of malts. Taste is grainy with sweet malts and grass. Very faint citrus notes. Mild bitter finish. Just a basic nice Czech pilsner.

Pilem to piwo z nalewaka, co może mieć jakieś przełożenie na walory smakowe, a te mnie zaskoczyły. Jest jasne, z wysoką, nawet ładną pianą, która się trochę utrzymuje, jednak to nie jest żelazna piana. Zapach słodowy, ciut chmielu da się wyczuć. W smaku za to jest, jak na pilsnera, dużo pełni, jest słodowe z domieszką goryczki, ale nie zalegającej. Jeden z lepszych pilsów, jakie piłem.

thejackpacker (199) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2017
Bottle from systembolaget. I know this beer can be a lot better than it was this time. Came out really sweet, tinny, p** like. Definitely better on draught.

Pas mon style de bičre. Carbonatation trčs faible. Peu de mousse. Bičre assez sčche et maltée. Un classique.

Bottle. Orangey Gold in colour. Malty; lots of sweet malts; smooth creamy buttery vanilla. Hoppy; grassy hops. Fruity; hint of citrus. Sweet malts balanced by citrus hop bitterness. Fine malt/hop/fruit balance. Drinkable. OK Pilsener! (2010-05)
