Bottle, pours a clear golden with a frothy moderate white head that drifts to a ring, no lacing. Aroma is malty, cookie and some floral and grass notes. Flavor is more mild, with light citrus, caramel and some hops. Nothing too exciting. NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2008
Bottle. Pours a crystal amber in color with a pure white, foamy head. The aroma is a little grassy with a malty sweetness. It has a well balanced flavor profile of dry citrusy zing with a creamy, malty finish. nearbeer (5370) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 17, 2008
330 ml. Clear orange-golden, with a creamy lasting head and nice lacing. Aroma is dry grain, slight honey, and crisp dry grass. Flavor is similar, plus some citrus and slight resin, with a slight sour note that plays well. Medium body is smooth and dry. Nice balance. JorisPPattyn (9929) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2008
Darker, orangey-gold with a good yellowish head, leaving lace. Very perfumey, but also volatile nose. After a short time, just some faraway toasted notes, and a bit of garden greenery. Tastes halfway neutral halfway bitter. Rather metallic tang, getting medicinal. No sweetness, but what is in place, is not very enjoyable either. Sharp, nearly astringent, very long, dry aftertaste, and not much body. Bweuh. This is one unpleasant Czech pilsener... jlf278 (288) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2008
More like a plae lager to me than a pilsener, but what do i know? oh yeah, i know when a beer is crap, like this one. I had little guilt in tossing the majority of this one. How did it win all those gold medals? Superior quality? If only I had known they were really a sneaky dolled up Heineken label.

Clear gold appearance with an averge size head and a fair amount of lacing. Sweet straw-like aroma with a metallic edge. Mild, herbal hop taste complimented by grainy malts. An unpretentious pils with a slightly bitter, lingering finish. rcweir (139) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Pours crystal clear, medium golden with vibrant carbonation and persistent head. Malt aroma with dry, citrus hops bitterness. OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2008 Can. Deep golden color, low near-white head quickly fading to a ring of foam. Bready, fairly dry malt aroma. Notes of earthy and light resiny hops. Taste is sourish malty, almost salty. Body is light plus. Oily texture. Sourish end. Goes well down, but does not impress. Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - MAR 13, 2008
This is a nice, different lager with character almost like a good English bitter. It is light amber with a big, off-white head that slowly shrinks to a thin top and leaves a little lace. The aroma is mostly toasty grain with bread, a hint of caramel, flowers, pine, and leaves. The taste is earthy, lightly toasty grain, caramel, leaves, some pine, and a fair amount of citrus. The bitterness is very light at first, but soon increaseas to a very nice balance of malt and hop. It’s wonderful. robertjm (892) - Albany, California, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Pours fluffy white head, which reminds me of Budweiser. Color is of a slightly dark Budweiser as well. Microfine bubbles are present. Nearly crystal clear when you hold it up to a light. Nice fresh aroma of a typical European pilsner. Flavor is reminiscent of Pilsner Urquel. Thin body with hops on the palate in the finish.
