500ml bottle from Morrisons - Looks really good with the crystal clear yellow body, fluffy white head, and dancing carbonation. After that it is pretty much just a bog-standard lager, albeit a decent one. But... for a quid a bottle, what can you say? ElDesmadre (3627) - Mikołów, POLAND - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle. Pale malt and herbal hop aroma, slightly watery taste with a medium bitterness. Malty and hoppy flavour. Rather nice. BlackHaddock (7415) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2013
Green half-litre bottle from my local Morrisons Supermarket: BBD 18 Sep 14, poured into two Veltins Pilsner badged glasses on 2 Nov 13.
Looked like almost every other Czech lager/pilsner on earth: golden, clear and bright. Usual no show of a lasting head too.
Gets my regular score of 3 for an odourless pilsner/lager: although this did have a slight metallic hint with a grass stain on it.
The taste was neither here nor there: grains rule overall, some sweetness at first, then a dry hop finish ensues. Refreshing enough, but not the best lager/pilsner in the world, that’s for sure. johndoughty (5472) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle. Bought from Morrisons at Bilston. Bronze with a malty aroma. Maltiness dominates producing a flavour that sems stronger than its real strength. A good Czech style lager.

Bottle, from Morrisons Scunthorpe. Deep gold, thin but lasting white head and gentle condition. Solidly grassy hops initially in the nose with a background of delicate honeyed malty sweetness, quite dry in the mouth with a persistent hop note and low maltiness, lingering restrained hop bitterness in the finish, very drinkable for its strength. mr_h (5643) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2013
500ml bottle from Morrisons, Ayr - clear golden, good foamy white head, pale malty, corn aroma, no lacing, very bland, bitter for a lager JohnRMurdoch (4926) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2013
500ml bottle from mr_h. Rich golden yellow, big foamy head. Resin corn malt aroma. Dry resin grain flavour. Bland & insipid. Not a good lager. SarkyNorthener (4676) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle from morrisons. Golden Orange/yellow beer with medium frothy head. Aroma of malts and perfume. Taste is floral, cereal and some soft perfume. Drinkable at best. flying_pig (1579) - SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2013
500ml bottle from Morrisons (£1.99):
Part sweet, part bitter aroma that wasn’t very pleasant at all and contained some malts with a basic hop aroma on top. There was some bread and corn with a bit of barely towards the end too.
Clear & light amber coloured with a thin, foamy white head that turns soapy lacing quickly.
Bitter & quite a cheap tasting beer with some grassy hops and bitter malts upfront with a hint of butterscotch or vanilla but quite a light one. There is a strange sweetness that quickly turns bitter half way through and is coupled with a slightly skunky taste. The beer seems cheap and a little stale.
Light bodied and quite weak with light carbonation and a flat taste that has touches of citrus but still makes a pretty poor beer on the palate with a bitter taste that lingers for far too long.
A rather poor beer from the outset and a sorry excuse for a Czech lager. The taste was overly bitter and seemed stale with a taste that seemed very slightly off. The beer definitely tasted cheap and it was a struggle to finish the bottle.
