Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & tupalev -- courtesy of me. Pours a clear light gold with a large lasting fizzy white head. Dissapointing sugary aroma of yeast and light skunky hops. Slightly funky flavour of yeast, malt, alcohol and hops. Light bodied. I think this is a case of the style not being for me, I did not much care for this at all.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, tupalev & jerc - courtesy of blankboy. Clear, bright gold with a moderate head. Aroma has a slightly skunky herbal hop aroma with some sweet sugary notes in the background. Flavour is like a slightly sweeter & stronger Czech pils. Not bad. rsans (125) - Pont-Rouge, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2005
Bottle (750ml). Bought at Costco in a special presentation package. (2 bottles and 2 glasses) Beautiful color. Light yellow or gold with a big white long lasting head. Good lacing. Good carbonation. Musty character. The taste is very peculiar….Kind of stale, corky and unpleasant metallic. Is it me, the style or simply a bad bottle. Will try again to give it justice.

Bottle shared with blankboy, jerc, hogtown harry, and gregclow, courtesy of blankboy. Light yellow, big white head. Funky skunk Czech hop aroma. Lots of butter too - just on this side of bad. Sweet light malt taste - a little harsh alcohol. Hoppy as well, but it all does not come together. Average. jercraigs (10921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2006 December 2006. Bottle from Marche Jovi in Gatineau. Crisp golden yellow, moderate creamy white head. (4) Moderate yeast and muted spice in the aroma, light notes of alcohol.

December 2005. Pale golden yellow, small fluffy white head fades. Mild herbal hops, with floral notes and a slight yeasty funk in the aroma. Flavour is light on the tongue, with herbal hops similar to that in the aroam providing a pleasant moderate bitterness. Effervescent medium palate. Nice beer, not doing much for me. 6/3/7/3/13 - 3.2
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2005 Bottle (750ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc, tupalev - courtesy of blankboy. Poured clear bright light gold with a huge foamy white lasting head. Aroma a bit funky-herbal, sickly sweet, not really different from most pale lagers. Taste is very mild and grassy, lots of stale hops that build and conquer the honeyish malt - mouthfeel lively and thin, very herbal and bitter. I just don’t seem to like this style.

Bottle. Golden colour with a large white head. Aroma is a nice fruity, floral, spicey, malty mix. Flavours are sweet, lightly fruity and malty with a dry bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel, fair amount of carbonation. Some late warming alcohol. Very good. rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2005

Bottle 750ml Appearance: Golden colour with a huge white head. Aroma: Good fruity malty, yeast, . Flavor: hops, sweet fruity, alcohol. cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2005
Pilsner gold, with excitable carbonation and a voluminous head. The aroma has a slightly fruity, light malt character that wafts from the glass. A full, creamy palate leads to a smooth, ever-so-lightly hoppy finish. Delecious and fine.
