3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very attractive deep golden, with an abundant head. Good looking stuff. Lightly dusty spicy saaz aroma. Some beefy czech malt as well. Firm honey-laced malts, just dripping with that signature czech flavor. Quite malty. Decent bitterness, with some late spicy hop character. As a matter of personal preference I prefer my pilsners a bit leaner and meaner (northern german, or from downington, if you must know) but as far as a malty czech one, this ones a real winner.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours to a clear golden yellow with some bronze highlights, along with a small white head that quickly dies. The aroma is light applejuice, vegitable, floral, and hints of bread. The taste is light apples, bread, carrot, light peppery yeast, and some bitter hops. Light bodied, medium carbonated, has a lightly sweet aftertaste with some bitter hops.

Light copper color with 2 finger white head. Aroma of malt, bread, grass, earthy. Taste is light sweet, just a bit bitter. Quite nice. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Good Pilsner

This is a lovely beer, gold with a solid head. A soft lager with delicate bohemian hopping. Biscuity and nicely sweet with malt and honey. Clean finish.

I forget who shared this at Paul’s party, but thanks.
Poured golden with a thin white head. Corn and bubble gum in the aroma. Taste is corn, german hops, and some strange instant noodle soup character. Didn’t really enjoy this too much, but in all fairness, it probably didn’t help that we opened this bottle immediately after Dogwood Youngbloods...

Thanks to friend and RateBeerian; BeanDip for this 16oz bottle, one in which she received from her Michael Jackson Rare Beer Club.
(Herold Bohemian Bronze Lager)
Pours a golden / copper body and a velvety white head. The aroma is sweet and holds an intriguing lemongrass hoppyness to the finish. The flavor again is a balance of sweet notes of honeysuckle; hand churned buttered crackers, a herbal tea like character, brown wild rice and a lemon zest, spicy and grassy hop in the sweet then bone-dry finish. The palate has some nice oily texture to it, which adds a bit more intrigue.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep golden colour. Very light copper coloured with a creamy white head. Faint malt aroma. Caramel malt flavour. Not quite as pilsener like as the 12%, but I like the flavour better. It's more robust.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden pour with a short off white head. Perfumey saaz hop aroma with some staleness. Skunk was present but faded quickly. Nice mouthfeel. Satisfying. Quite tastey with medicine-like hops and earthy malts, moss. Not a lot of character to separate from others of the species.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle: Llghtly hazy golden w/ a short lived white head. Grainy malt aroma at first. Light hints of floral hops as it warms a bit. A bit of sulphury yeast and soft bready malt as it warms. Well balaced if even a bit sweet up front, but turns lightly pleasantly bitter as it’s swallowed and into the finish and aftertaste. Some floral hop flavors are very light. Very clean overall. Lighter medium body, higher medium carbonation, smooth m/f. Nice, clean pilsner, but not very exciting if you’re looking for something more complex. However, as far as Pilsners are concerned, very good and well made!!!
