UPDATED: SEP 16, 2005 Dark golden color with a nice head. This is a really good beer, but im not surprised since it is czech. It has a fresh and clean taste with a nice bitter finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the Rose and Thistle, Frimley Green - 05/01/13.
Clear mid golden with a thin white head.
Nose is subdued, light pale malt, a little caramel and grass.
Taste is malt forward, caramel, touch buttery but not in a nasty diacetyl way, light fruit, hint of vanilla.
Medium bodied with spritzy carbonation, bitter dry finish.
Memories fade perhaps but this isn’t the beer it was when I first tried it in Praha some 11 or so years ago! Drinkable however and still a far superior option to most keg tap commercial drivel.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2008 330ml bottle from Unwins. Pale gold with white bubbly head. Along with Budvar, one of my favourites. Nice pilsner citric hop. OK in mouth with satisfying hop citric finish. More flavour than most lagers too.. 22.214.171.124 Re-rate Draught at blind tasting at Modry Abbe. Pretty looking beer, clear gold, thick cream head. Excellent carbonation. NO huge aroma, some hop on finish. No bad or off flavours, nothing to make it unattractive. It’s fine. Even some drinkability.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2012 Bottle. Golden color and very lively carbonation. Medium head with medium duration. Aroma is dominated by hops and maybe a little fruit. Taste is mostly hops and bit too bitter for my taste. Rerated @ fonefan tasting. Medium head with medium duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are malt, hops and notes of butter.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2004 Bottle
Very fresh hoppy aroma. Quite big white head. Appearance very clear, golden. Bitterness which has some bite - but not too heavily plus grass flavour which stays long enough to make drinking enjoyable. (9/3/8/4/15 3.9)
Re-rate: bottled (BB 01/2005)
Dark golden color with steady white head, lace. Strong hoppy aroma - like it should be. Hops dominate mouthfeel, some sugary notes too. Bitter hoppy aftertaste. Classic benchmark of the style. (7/3/7/5/15 3.7)

Ok, so it’s very seldom fresh at all in North America. I just remember a few years ago in Halifax when I had some straight off the boat. That’s where these high marks come from. When fresh, this is a first-rate pilsner. When not fresh, well, it’s like any other beer that isn’t fresh. Usually on this side of the ocean you’ll want to get it on tap or from the can, to avoid skunkage.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Light-carbonation golden beer with a small white head leaving lacings. Quite weak aroma with flowery hops overpowering the malts. Clean, malty and hoppy flavor, with a lovely bitter finish. A bit thin body, but ok. (060411)
