Clear dark gold color with a thin ring of white lace. Good aroma of saaz hops with abundant malt. Flavor of mild hops, citrus with strong malt.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 6, 2012
The head is medium, the body brown. It smells malty, roasty. The taste is sweet, soft-foamy, mild. A bit strange. 6/4/5/5/8/4

vinivini (3148) - Gomel, BELARUS - APR 1, 2017
Swing top bottle. Pale amber beer, tall frothy head. Good retention. Aroma: grains, caramel, spicy hop. Light to medium body. Well rounded. Nice flavour composition. Just the right amount of pale malts, caramel and hops. Light to medium smooth bitterness. Well done.

Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 6, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2009 Bottled 50cl. It pours a golden beer with a whitish, long remaining head. I was impressed by the nose straight away. Amazingly nice, biscuity with hints of pineapple, just a wonderful hop aroma, lots of hay with some crisp caramel and a touch of sorbet. Very toasty. The taste was slightly oily showing amazing features again: Pineapple, sorbet, a hint of caramel withouth being out of place or unenjoyable. An extremly smooth beer possessing all the qualities of a Bohemian Pilsener. It leaves a beautiful lacing. A beer I will have again and again... The finish is gentle and smooth, rather biscuity with a decent amount of saaz hops. An extremely nice pils.

Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Danke an Frankenland für dieses Bier. Süß-hopfiger Geruch. Ein wenig süßlicher und vor allem milder Antrunk. Dann etwas herber, aromatischer werdend. Der Abgang steigert noch ein wenig die Herbe, die insgesamt aber noch mild ist. Ganz ok. Test vom 14.11.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche

NordicV (2556) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2016
Gyllengul öl med ett vitt skum. En enkel tjeckisk pilsner som inte sticker ut. Viss metallisk känsla i smaken som drar ner betyget något.

Grima (2511) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2013
The beer in the glass is strong golden yellow, slightly cloudy, with a high, soapy head. It smells yeasty and sweet, subtly tart, with a lot of aroma hops, grain and bread. Starts mild malty, very bready and grainy, with plenty of aroma hops in the background. The middle part shows some sweet yeast, coupled with a lot of grain, bread and aroma hops. Goes into a hoppy-bitter finish, coupled with some caramel and toffee.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2010 0,5 l bottle.
Classic lager appearance with a golden body and a medium, delicious, fine and froathy white head that diminishes slowly with laces on the glass. Fine bready malt based sourish aroma, flowery hops. Smooth mouthfeel, rich body. Malt based flavor with mild carbonation, fine character of bottom-fermentation, nice flowery hop flavor. Complex palate, fine hoppy-malty aftertaste. One of the best lager what i’ve ever tasted!
