500ml can from the shop, drunk at home. Pours clear with a thick but short-lived frothy head, medium lacing but no bead. Aroma of bread, cereal and slightly floral hops. Creamy at first in the mouth with some fruit and cereal flavours. Medium bodied, with more than a touch of sweetness, and a strong bitter finish that becomes a slightly astringent aftertaste. Overall, less to my liking than Budweiser, but a very good pilsener nevertheless.

Gold colour with medium white head. Sweet bready malt, successful combination of spiciness and sweetness. The first of its kind that I've tried. Good one.

It pours clear yellow body with visible carbonation. Head is medium sized and white. Retention is average, no lacing. Smells mildly of sweet malts, slight herbal hops and corn. Taste is well balanced between sweet malts and bittering hops. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated. Crisp, dry and hoppy finish. Very good lager.

Andrew_reese (5) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - NOV 19, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 More hoppy and lighter color than its Czech rival Budweiser but an easy drinking Pilsner non the less

ATTENZIONE:La mia valutazione viene fatta in base allo stile della birra. Pilsner perfetta, poco corpo e forte presenza di luppolo ma niente di eccezionale. La birra ha un colore dorato con schiuma bianca ma non abbondante ma persistente. Il corpo è leggero e rinfrescante. Quello che domina la scena è il sapore del luppolo che è presente SEMPRE, cioè dall'inizio del sorso fino alla fine. Inoltre l'amaro rimane in bocca anche dopo alcuni secondi dopo il sorso. Quello che mi ha impressionato è stato la sua leggerezza. Una pecca, secondo me, è la carbonazione che dovrebbe essere leggermente maggiore. Comunque una birra buona, rinfrescante e soprattutta amara come deve essere una pilsner. Ovviamente, l'amaro non è invadente ma piacevole.

Bottle from Morrisons. I'm no great expert with the Pilsner style. I really enjoyed this beer. Lovely hoppy aroma sweet Pilsner malt and appropriate bitterness. Gave the impression of a well balanced lager and I haven't enjoy that one so much since sitting in the very hot sun.

piotrtom (143) - Limanowa, POLAND - NOV 8, 2017
Idealnie klarowne, złociste, ładna pianka, musuje. Aromat słodowo-chmielowy, lekko ziołowo/żywiczny i klasyczna off-nuta zielonej butelki, siarka z zapałek i może troche dms'u. W smaku mocno chmielowo-goryczkowy (goryczka średnia do lekkiej), lekka podbudowa słodowa, nie ma dość diacetylu co można różnie interpretować, kapka żelaza. Ogólnie w smaku lepsze niż w aromacie. Fest pijalne i fajnie nagazowane, nie za mocno.

k_gadeberg (201) - Århus, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2017
On bottle. Pours golden with thick head, which dissapears quickly. Notes of fruits and citra - easy drinkable. Light hops - reminds of a Tuborg, with more co2.

Great Beer, flavours hold up with food. Classic Pislner. Deliciouse straight out the tank!

On tap U kocura. So this is the original pilsner. It's a good beer indeed, and maybe it's good it didn't change, but honestly there are better followers out there.
