humph aint so exclusive anymore but i remember it as rich, malty, fruity, & very bitter. aobecksy (700) - Middle of no where, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Looks great, clear and golden, just the right head. Would not call it a pilsner, taste honeyesq more like a triple with less alcohol and thinner. heykevin (1287) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - OCT 2, 2005
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.

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. TheBeerGod (6261) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Bottle from the MJ Rare Beer Club. Beautiful gold body. Small eggshell colored head. Nose is grassy and crisp with medium toasty malts, and lighter sweetness. Like buttered biscuits with a dab of honey on them. Light Euro hop perfume as well. Taste is a bit hoppier and grassier and the sweetness seemingly recedes to the background. I’m thinking this tastes a lot like Hopfen Konig from Eggenberg, but since I don’t have any to compare to right now, it’s simply speculation. Body is a bit dry with some lingering bitterness, and mild carbonation tingle. Light medium overall feel. Finish is crisp and hoppy. Light toastiness while honey combs are dancing amongst whole leaf Euro hops. Pleasantly delicious. Another winner from Herold.

Lemon copper. Slightly rocky, grabby white foam. Very good retention. Rustic aroma of minerals, fennel, and biscuity malt. Fluffy carbonation softens the body’s hardness. Mineral laden body ignites a zingy hop engagement. Quite dry, but packed with a creamy, semi-cakey caress of banana bread and honeyed graham sweetness to balance the overly herbal, unrefined nature of the Saaz. Dainty floral softness. Zingy fennel remnants continue despite the firm toasted straw push. Finishes complexly malt driven, with toffee and toasted dough being trailed by a palate swiping wash of everlastingly raspy hops and stonelike dryness. Very good, if a tad unpolished.

500 ml bottle from MJ Rare Beer Club. Clear gold with a nice sized white head. Aroma is mostly grainy and dough. First taste is nicely hopped and malty. As it warms, the sweet grain flavor comes through. This to m is where the beer gets very interesting and tasty. thewolf (12803) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2006
A wonderful amber/bronze colour with a large white head. A hoppy taste with a hint of fruit. Very good aftertaste with a relative sweetness. MiP (15973) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2009
Draught. Faintly roasted aroma. Clear very dark chestnut colour. Good stable tan head. The flavour starts off nicely roasted, turning malty, sweet and then spicy. Flavourful and very well balanced. Serapac (551) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 17, 2014
On tap in Třeboň. Reddish brown (it was dark) with a good consistent head. Smooth bitter taste with hints of caramel.
