mcberko (16810) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
Sampled on tap at LAmre Boire, pours a clear copper with a medium off-white head. Aroma is quite herbal and fungal, with dank earth, herbal hops and bready malts. Flavour is dominated by dank white bread, slight herbal and spice notes, but barely noticeable. Mouthfeel is fairly meaty for a 3.6% blond lager. Solid session beer.

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 3, 2015
On tap @ LAmere A Boire. Fairly clear golden orange pour with a soapy white head. Nice biscuit and toasted grain on the nose. Very light soapy and floral hops. Maybe a little sulfur, unfortunately. The mouthfeel is really my only real gripe here, but at less than 4% thats maybe expected? Pretty good maltiness and subtle hop bitterness. Lightly soapy. Pretty good biscuit quality, though.

Lubiere (13645) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2009
A golden pils with a thick white head. A nice biscuitty malt with pungeant czech hops. In mouth, a good biscuitty malt, carmale, with herbaceous hops, a bit of butterscotch. Very well balanced and rich bodied....and its 3.6%??? Wow. A quaffer classic. On tap at brewpub, April 24 2009.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2014 My Bottom Line:
Outgoing Saaz spiciness bounces and flutters all around this Světl Včepns valiant bready cereals, creating a cushy, lovely example of old world drinkability. This little sister of Cerna Hora might very well be as satisfying for long sessions.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam laces atop the veiled blond.
-This has to be the first 10-degree Czech-style Pilsener brewed in northeastern America?
-Carbonation is soft and the body lean (but never thin), building an engaging mouthfeel.
-The finish is lightly bitter from the Saazs herbal character and a tad dry as well.
-A few more pints of this and I might fall in love just like I did with their Cerna Hora many years ago! Bravo! Now if they could brew it as often...;)

On tap at the brewpub.

Pale golden straw colour. Thick white head. The nose is crisp and clean. A bright spicy hoppiness over a surprisingly malty base. For a 10 brew its actually got a fairly rich base in it. Great balance of malt and hops. Moderate bitterness but quite clean. A faint sulfite nose - the kind of beer you could drink all day. Lovely and fresh.

[5441-20130531] Tap. Petrol-infused dry floral grainy aroma. Slightly hazy, orange body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. More floral petrol in the flavour with a bit of a straw base. Medium body. Interesting to sample. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2
