Rich golden body with small off-white head. Grassy aroma with hint of apple sweetness. Taste is grassy bitterness, complemented to a limited degree by light mid-body sweetness. Aftertaste is quite grassy. Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 27, 2003
Golden-yellow with a dense white head. Medium body with malt aromas and tangy hop flavor. Slightly sweet note in the middle, but finishes with an assertive hop bite. Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 21, 2003
As always, the pour a translucent gold color, the head unimpressive in size, the color bright white, the lace a thin sheet that almost covers the glass. Malt dominates the nose, clean and crisp, and not a bad sniffer. Start malt and lightly sweet, the top skinny in its feel on the palate. Finish minimally acidic, the hops adequate the aftertaste quite dry and just to “Watery” for me, “NO” body.

I think I saw this beer under another name. If I am correct I think it was more dry and bitter than Pilsner Urquell. Not bad though. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 1, 2003
ostrava’s best export since ivan lendl. like ivan i fear it may be past its best. the standard seems to have slipped and it has become more of a supermarket beer and quite hard to find in pubs

Nice Euro-lager visual appeal. Shallow aroma as well as flavor. OK choice as a lightly refreshing pilsner, nothing more. Cartoonkhaki (1280) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2002
This beer had a really nice appearance to me but it lacked after that. I found it to malty with a fading aroma. Tolik99 (47) - USA - DEC 15, 2002
Fantastic sunflower lager: not so hoppy as Urquell, but very rich, crisp, sparkling and refreshing. Goes nice with Bohemian fish (carp). Ideal for pub drinking (and talking). Donatas (188) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - DEC 15, 2002
Fine beer. I would like, that it was a little bit stronger. Very good in old style czech pub. Radek Kliber (7359) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 14, 2002
It looks very nice, only if head was a bit thicker and stronger could get 4. Sweet flowery aroma doesn’t represent well what bohemian pilsners are about. Bready if taste, a bit low on bitterness. Bitterness shows up in the end and aftertaste (when bready , grain fell vanish). Not bad, but nothing great either. Fun to drink.
