i’m assuming this is the 11 degree. excellent starobrno style pilsener which proves that good things can come out of jihlava. clear gold with a nice head that gradually forms icefloes. malty and buttery with peppery, quite bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2014 ABV 4,8 on bottle. Pours amber with tall thin head. It’s not like most Czech Pilsners. Fruity and malty aroma with honey notes reminded me of British ales. Medium body. Sweet & bitter notes combined into taste composition. Nice and special.

Bottle shared by Dutchdrebus @ weekly tasting. Clear golden color, medium sized white head that lasts for quite a while and leaves fair lacing. Aroma is malts, light to moderately hops, some hay. Taste malts, hay, nicely bitter, moderately hoppy. Decent body and carbonation. Quite nice.

One of my favorite czech pilsners. Nicely balanced. Typical sour-bitter taste and aroma. Full body. Very drinkable. Not too bitter. Beats all pale lagers in Poland...

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pearl white head, partly creamy, holding on a bit. Labyrinth lacings. Clear gold golden body.
Aroma; caramel malts, berries, leather, dark bread. Taste; hops, caramel malts, berries, dark bread, apple peel, pine, bitter grass, honey-butter notes.
Juicy and moreish.
Finishes hoppy, with dark caramel, bread, and lingering. A svetle that tastes darker during the journey. Interesting and good.

Bottle. Golden and clear with a small head. Slightly malty and quite refreshing. Although a fairly mundane beer it is a good example of this style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at my university’s students’ club. This afaik replaced Pilsner Urquell on tap. I’ve heard from someone that it was really Urquell in Jihlava kegs, but I seriously doubt it now because the kegs had the importers’ stickers that clearly said that this was the 4.7% Ježek.
This poured a nice yellow-golden colour with a medium sized thick creamy white head, very lively carbonation. A nice malty nose, with nice herbal-lemony hopiness. The taste was remarkably pleasant. A superb honey-fruity maltiness, with some pleasant background herbal hopiness that mixed with the maltiness nicely. A bit salty, and a weak weak touch of metal, but all in all, a very, very good pils. If this was really Pilsner Urquell, this was the oddest (and the best) one I’ve ever had (if it was, I’m rerating it with this review here). Anyway, deserves the high score.

draft. medium gold / brass shimmering body with a fine white head. toasty medium sweet chewy / sticky / toffee munich or vienna malt character bit of
flavor. corn-like lingering oily finish. but overall it’s frothy and chewy and seems thicker and bigger than 11 degrees, but it’s put together quite well.
