Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Bottle. The big bubbled head sticks around long enough. Aroma is nice and flowery. Taste has a nice sweet maltiness to it, along with a nice fresh hoppiness. Not bad at all.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2007
Bottle: Pours a lucid golden with a fading white head. The aroma is a bit doughy, without enough hop character. The flavor is mildly sweet, but too sweet for the style in my opinion. The malt character seems a bit buttery, and there isn’t enough spicy hop presence, which I look for in Bohemian Pilsners. Not that good.

Maverick34 (3184) - New York, USA - DEC 11, 2007
500 ML bottle. Pours a flat clear light gold. Little bit of head. Some malt & grassiness & hops. They’re selling this for 1.25 a bottle at the grocery store hre in manhattan, and is pretty decent with some complexity for the dollar, so really you can’t go wrong

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 12, 2007
500 ml. bottle. Poured gold and flat looking with a dissolving white head. Aroma of cereal malts, straw, grass and some honeysuckle. Flavor of straw, grass, and light cereal with some metallic notes. Very watery, however, which basically undermines any good qualities. The thin, watery body makes this a pretty poor example of the style.

iam (369) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2007
Pours a straw colour with a rapidly diminishing bubbly head. Light aroma of malt and hops. Very thin mouthfeel and watery taste.

BigBeer45 (1505) - Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2007
500ml bottle: pours a clear gold, white foamy bubbles, grass, hay and faint floral fragrances with a malt aroma, malt and some bread flavors, less then a medium hop bite, some citrus, dry finish, mouth feel was a little thin.

IMtheOptimator (1167) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - JAN 19, 2007
Poured an effervescent golden with a fizzy white head. Aroma of corn syrup, apple, perhaps a slight bit of grass. Flavor follows with notes of apple, grass, butterscotch, toffee. The pleasant flavors are rather subdued and mixed with a few off flavors. An uninspired czech pilsener that although extremely cheap ($1.05 for a half litre), really isn’t worth it.
