shoestring (422) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - JUN 9, 2017
Typical pilsner look. Hoppy malts through a rocky head. Easily sunk. Not a lot in mouth. Not lot high notes but enjoyable chilled. Back on as it heated up it actually increased pilsener flavour . Nice for’ own brand ’ BeerNinjaUK (575) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2016
Bottle from local Co-op. Pours bright yellow with frothy, rapidly disappearing head. Quite fresh with citrussy notes and good carbonation. OK for cheap supermarket beer but rather watery and uninspiring. Garrold (5518) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle from the local Co-op. Clear gold, with a nicely dense, lasting, white head. Sweet grain and light toffee. Hint of fruity hop. Taste is soft sweet. Some spicy bitterness. Soft, oily mouthfeel. Turns sweeter on the close. Decent enough. Leighton (22056) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2015
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the Co-Op in the Birwich train station. Pours totally clear yellow-gold, with a creamy white head. The nose has a bit of biscuits, hay, pale grains, cereal. Light to medium sweet flavor with plenty of simple cereal, slight bitter straw, touches of lemon rind, citrus peel. Light bodied with average carbonation. Reasonably crisp on the finish, with more biscuity malts, pale bread and cereal, mild bitterness, husky grains, straw. A simplistic lager, but it’s very drinkable. imdownthepub (15160) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2015
Bottled, 500ml from The Co-Op, Crossways, Dorset. Gold with fizzed, short head. There are doughy, bready malts to the fore in this with a wet cardboard character. Some drying notes, some sweetness. I just found it quite dull myself.
EdKing (2640) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle from Co-op on Abbeville Road. Clear slightly toasty looking amber lager with a medium to large foam head depending on how you pour it. Nose is light grass and hay, sweetish cereal grain malt, crisp slightly bitter hop. On the taste this has a slightly toasty sweetness from the malt. Like the malt character although could maybe do with a touch more crisp dry lager hop bitterness, as body feels a touch lightweight. Decent though and a few notches above the standard macro lager. SilkTork (5806) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2015
500ml green bottle, filtered, from local closing down Co-op for silly cheap price. Whiff of light-struck hops on opening. Malt is dry, bland, grainy. Hops are not as evident as one would hope from a Czech lager. All in all a less than ordinary beer. Drinkable, but unexciting. Tastes like the regular Staropramen, and probably is the regular Staropramen. nihtila (3872) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours clear holden. Nose is grain, lemon, hay. Taste is sweetish malts, grass, vegetables. BlackHaddock (7585) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2015
Green 500ml bottle, under it’s Co-Op label: BBD Dec 15. Poured at home in Jan 15. It was taken in a blind tasting with a Pivovar Herold brewed beer and a German Memminger brewed one: this came second in the scores behind the Memminger offering. This Pilsner had all the typical attributes of the style: clean, clear and light golden in colour with the usual fading white head. Crisp on the palate but odourless almost, pleasant blend in the mouth, hops lead with a good underbelly of light maltiness the balance out the bitterness and dryness of the hop content: decent. SarkyNorthener (4784) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle from local co-op. Golden amber with medium head. Aroma of pale malts and perfume. Taste is slightly sweet pale malts, floral and a mild hop bitterness. Ok.
