Pours a light gold color in the glass. Nose and taste are a little floral, lots of peppers and spice. Rated 1/13/2000 yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 11, 2006
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) FatPhil (17080) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 30, 2008

Slightly creamy crisp lager aroma - not particularly hoppy. Refreshing subtle hoppy taste, again a bit creamy. The hop bitterness is quite short, but it is most pleasant while it’s there. Perhaps a little thin, but that makes it quite a drinkable pilsner. This is the beer all other pilsners should be compared to - if it’s worse than this it really isn’t very good.
UPDATED: APR 12, 2013 Nice dark golden color, not as yellow as most pilseners these days. Pretty much my ideal color for a pilsener. Nice white head of about one finger. Little bit musty smell, but full flavored taste. Malts and grains in the taste. Low to medium carbonation, medium body. brokensail (16648) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 13, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear golden color with approximately one finger of foam.
S: Smells pretty much like I remember it. Mostly bread and biscuit type malt notes but there is a slight hoppiness to it that I would describe as floral and spicy.
T: The flavor is similarly tilted toward the malt side with enough hoppiness to keep things refreshing. Bread with some earthy notes to start it off with a slight bitterness and more floral note taking over on the finish.
M: The body is light to medium with a moderate to high level of carbonation.
D: Definitely one of the classics. Maybe not my favorite pils, but certainly a good one.

Draft - Light sweet bready grains. Clear gold with a nice white head. Some citrus and grainy notes with a very dry finish. Touch of bitterness in the finish. Dedollewaitor (16387) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2012 Golden see through with white head. Watery texture. Aroma of hops and malts. lively carbonation. Finish has a sour bitter bite from hops. My respects to Plzen, but this is mediocre. Rerating Aug. 09. Lots of grain and grassy hops. Dry and crisp. Simple , tasty and well balanced Bohemian pils.From 2,9 to 3,2.

Bitter, but also aromatic. Perfect for long sessions........................ bhensonb (15760) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Clean hop aroma, not so hoppy as American pale ales, but hoppy. Golden amber color with a decent white head. Medium mouthfeel. Instant hit of hop bitter, quickly balanced by malt. And it goes on like that. Bitterness is ever present, and the malt still hangs in at the finish. It’s not a lot of malt, but it’s not a gigantic amount of hop either. Bitter enough to keep around the mouth. Won’t replace a decent ale, but better than 90+% of the filtered golden lagers. Scopey (15725) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2011
500ml bottle from Partridges in Chelsea. Pours golden yellow, well carbonated with foamy off-white head. Nose; dominant hay/grass and some citrus. Taste; velvety mouthfeel, grassy, slight lemon, smooth, crisp but a bit weak. As lagers go its pretty good (i.e. better than fosters), but not for me.
