2015 BJCP Category: 3B Czech Premium Pale Lager
AROMA: Medium-high bready-rich malt medium spicy hops. Clean fermentation profile. Slight honey/lemon oxidation presence. 9/12
APPEARANCE: Somewhat dark golden hue (5-7 SRM). Clear body; plenty effervescent. Large white froth retains and laces well. 3/3
FLAVOR: Fairly strong bready-rich malt taste throughout. Akin to whole grain bread with a light caramel sweetness in the background (though that may be oxidation). Hops are quite prominent as well with spicy/peppery taste and assertive, dry bitterness. Balance is slightly malty, but the interplay is rather complex. Slight honey taste on the finish due to oxidation. Otherwise clean fermentation. 18/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium body and carbonation. Smooth, comfortable texture (not crisp or spastic). Hops linger for a mild spicy, dry aftertaste. Feels like a much stronger brew than 4.4% ABV. Absolutely sessionable. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: If this were fresh it'd definitely be a World Class example. A hidden gem hiding in your local beer store. 9/10
TOTAL SCORE: 44/50
En noget kedelig øl. Tynd som en dårlig dåseøl. Det plejer de at gøre bedre i Tjekkiet Bill Becker (1365) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JUL 8, 2017
169 fluid ounce bottle. I bet I’ve never said that before.
Crystal clear light gold colour, impressive head of foam. Lacing is good as well.
The smell is of sweet bread backed by grassy hops.
Not as sweet in the taste. Grass with bready malt that works for me. Grainy.
Not like a PU but serviceable and...cheap. BeerRenter76 (1028) - Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Originally rated on 1/28/09. Mid yellow body, not much in the way of carbonation or head, some lace left behind. Crisp mouthfeel, some hop bite with hints of grass and sweet bready malts. Refreshing with a decent aftertaste, although i am not a big pilsner fan it was drinkable. hershiser2 (3591) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 10, 2017
Bottle from Market Steer Wine Shop, Downtown. Clear golden with a small white head. Corn and cracker aroma. Flavor is sweet grasses, somewhat sweet, some corn, grains. Strangely dry and leaves a weird film in my mouth. It’s not horrible, but that strange film in my mouth is... well, strange.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2017 Mild bulky aroma with faint malt. Sweet, but pretty light. Watery. Weak. Faint malt in taste as well... Not exactly very rebellious. ghostbeer (241) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Light and almost a melon fruit flavor to it. Not certain if that is intentional but it was not that bad and it was refreshing. floydslip (417) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Clear gold beer with a slightly reddish hue topped with a bright crop of white head that takes a while to subside. Generic nose of corn syrup, musky hops, and light cereal grain. Flavor is standard pilsener with a subtle sweetness followed by some cardboard hops, although this one pulls it off fairly well. Definitely not my favorite style, but a decent beer nonetheless. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Poured from a 11.2 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Yhe beer is a clear light golden color. The aroma is slightly skunky with some hops. The taste is mild with some grass notes. TorbenJensen (1546) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2015
The foam decreases rapidly, leaving a thin layer on a low-carbonated beer. Therefore, it acts quickly flat. The aroma is not as exciting, but is just slightly hoppy. The taste lacking fullness and richness malt and hops are shown not the good Czech Saaz, but rather a less expensive and less appealing alternative. Hop bitterness is actually only flavor factor in this pilsner and expects to Czech quality you will be disappointed.
