JorisPPattyn (9603) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2015
Medium, just off-white head over clear, faintly copperish golden beer; lacerings. Dry, bit hoppy nose over sweeter grains & malts. Cucumber flavour, enhanced by the spritzy CO˛. Greenmalts? (could be, as the brewery uses its own floormalting). Spritzy, light. Not so bad at all, Jiri!

KyotoLefty (9528) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 15, 2015
Bottle at Klub. Deep, bright gold, clear, bubbles, medium pillowy head. Nicely malty nose, bready, fruity. Full body, sweet fruity malt, a bit heavy. Nice, but a bit too sweet. Overall, a nice special.

Russo (2012) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2015
Clear golden color with a frothy white head. Aroma is malty, hoppy and sweet notes. Flavor is hoppy and malty as the aroma, medium to high carbonation and a bitter finish. Very pleasant.

Fľaša 500 ml z pivotéky v Nitre. Zlatá farba, hustá krémová biela pena, sladovo chmeľová aróma. Nižšia rezkosť, krásne vyvážená plná chuť chmelu, sladu a kvasníc. Jemne lahodné pitie, super!

rgf001 (323) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Strong fresh floral hop aroma (saaz?), low grainy-sweet malt aroma, DMS?, no detectable esters. No off aromas. Persistent white head that leaves lace. Clear but not brilliant gold color. Initial sweet flavor with soft bitterness coming immediately after. Excellent balance hoppy/ malty. Medium spicy hop flavor, and medium pils malt flavor with background melanoidins. Medium dry finish and good resiny aftertaste. Apparently soft water. Medium-light body with optimal carbonation. No astringency and no alcohol apparent. Extremely drinkable and flavorful pils in its prime. One of the best I had.

darker golden colour, moderate size, dense white head; aroma of grass, hay, floral and fruity notes; taste of bread crust, fruity notes, hoppy bitterness and some buttery notes; correct pilsner

sharkydodson (1245) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - MAR 17, 2015
the aroma is malty with hints of hops, grain and grasses... the taste is rather clear and refreshening, malty and hoppy with some herbal notes... aftertaste is dry and bitter... universal Czech pilsner...

mmahut (1847) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle. Clear pale body with low white head. Aroma is malty , clean. Taste has medium malty sweetness with well balanced noble bitterness. Actually not bad for a bottled lager, would like to try it on tap. Body is full, high carbonation.

eduardovl (1372) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 500ml bottle served in a Weizen glass. A: Pours a clear golden yellow color forming a medium bubbled and very bubbled white head. Creamy. Excellent retention and lots of thin and lingering lacings left in the glass S: Great notes of honey and sweet grains. Delicious. Very bready with strong notes of flowery hops. Notes of vanilla and earthy, bready Lager yeasts T: Slightly sweet pale grains in upfront. Crispy. Strong notes of honey. Very bready. Delicious flowery hops. In overall, a dry but smooth and pleasant taste M: Medium, creamy and extremely smooth texture. Good carbonation and a very bready aftertaste O: Great drinkability. Quite "different" Czech Pilsener in the good sense. Very smooth and pleasant Lager [ BA Review @ 6/18/2014 ]
