A true pilsner style beer, using centuries old decoction mashing techniques and incorporating hop flowers from the fields of Zatec. Sweet barley flavours quickly recede revealing the emphatic spiciniess and characteristic aftertaste of the Czech Saaz hops.

Bottle. Golden yellow, average white head. Clean grains with a lemony note in the aroma and finish, nice flavour and body. Above average.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 24, 2007
bottled. fizzy, yellow, faintly grassy with some muted saaz character. i hate to think what someone in zatec would make of them wasting their produce like this

mkel07 (5742) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2008
330ml bottle. An okay lager with a large white frothy head and pleaseant aftertaste. Tastes better the more you drink out of the glass. Medium bodied and amber in colour.

TimE (5714) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 27, 2007
Light mainstream lager with lime and corn meal. Refreshing and smooth, but little else.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2006
Bottle. Typical fizzy Aussie style Bohemian Pilsener. Its saazy, as youd expect from a beer that has saaz hops in it, but in typical Aussie fashion, way too fizzy and served at near freezing temperatures. Some tinned fruit (SPC, Goulburn Valley etc)

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 22, 2006
Another bottle from Poperinges mysterious sources. Fluffy head. Light gold colour. Noticeable light grass and cookie aroma. Doesnt have the bite I like with a Pilsener. A lightly sweet finish but not an overuse of malt.

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 16, 2007
Bland looking, pale golden body with an ordinary white head. Medium hop aroma, average taste that is not too sweet and just enough saaz hops to make it somewhat drinkable.

ALLOVATE (2992) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2012
Tried back in September 2010.
An odd amount of proteins in suspension once it settled in the glass, held there by the finest, most minute carbonation I have ever seen. A sunny, yellow straw and just shy of bright with a snow-white, sudsy white cap that is well retained. Grainbed nose with hints of damp chaff and fresh mown grass. Pleasant vanillin, doughy sweet front in the mouth with a malty mid-palate sprinkled with lemon-pepper. Medium-light in body, not as delicate as a Pilsner should be yet the spritzy carbonation has it bouncing across the tongue with haste. Dusty, herbal finish, subtle bitterness with a crisp edge and only a short waft of hop and malt to linger. This isnt in the best of form showing signs of deterioration, but still goes down a treat. Fresh it might just be a cracker. (33cL, BB 25/05/10, Dan Murphys Balcatta)

Muggus69 (2414) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2008
330ml bottle, served chilled. Golden body, white fluffy. Skunky corn malt nose, some gras, some honey and lime-like citrus. Thin bodied, fizzy carbonation. Quite bland body, some honey malt and citrusy hops, finishes a bit skunky and dry. Nothing special.
