A Sim rate (Bottle at JDW): Sweet and malty aroma with no lager bitterness. Birght golden colour. Very fizzy with steady, thin head and dribs and drabs of lace. Disappointing flavour after a sweet aroma. Bitter finish. HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2007
A non-descript, hoppyish lager from Czechoslavakia. OK, I s’pose, nowt special about this one. Stopherbomber (111) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 10, 2007
a tasty czech beer, tastes good and smooth over the tongue. a good beer for a night on it. cheap at the local weatherspoons as well. Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Acquired from John’s in Iowa City. Poured golden with a light weight, white head. Aroma was sweet and crisp. So when I tasted I was surprised at the roundness. Slight earth flavor at the start then effective hops and stong malt. Would be a great beer in the Fall outside. DJC (238) - USA - DEC 20, 2006
Light copper/amber color, with a thin head. Semi-sweet, dried apricot aroma. The flavor is sweet, as well, and that last until the very end. Hops, malt, apricot, toffee, and maybe even a hint of anise. Mildly bitter finish. This is a pretty good beer, but it’s really not my style.

A new arrival at John’s in Iowa City. The body was a light copper color with a white head. The rich aroma has carrot cake along with some ginger. There is also a hint of biscuits. The light body is lively with plenty of carbonation. The taste has some sweet carrots with some dirty potato skins. The finish has some mineral character. A decent pils that could use a little more hops. LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - AUG 3, 2006
I really enjoy the beers from this brewer. This is, however, my least favorite so far. Perhaps an old sample, but this had a touch too much butterscotch in the flavor. Aroma a bit too sweet as well. Will likely give it another try. rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2006
Nice golden color with a big white head. Hoppy aroma with grass and hay, some bready notes. Quite malty flavor with diacetyl, mixed with a nice hoppy metallic touch. Quite mild finish. ganache (6089) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Bottle. Clear, deep golden with a diminishing tan head with a hint of yellow-brown. Sweet malty aroma with a good deal of perfume and notes of citrus and apple. Taste is juicy, light-bodied, but strongly grassy and grainy with a risen level of hollow bitterness. Little oily, little hoppy. Honey and a very dry finish. Rough around the edges. Thanks to pivnizub! whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Clear, toasted-straw color body with gentle carbonation and a cottony, white head. Aroma of fresh and toasted malt with floral and apple notes. Flavor has tangy fruit characters and some distant floral Saaz characters plus subdued bitterness. Also has metallic note. Doesn’t please me quite like other offerings from this brewery.
