3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Terrible aroma on this pils and it really jumps out of the glass. It is reminiscent of some Italian birras I have had. It is a very nice looking beer being golden in color and clear, clean and crisp. Very little carbonation to disturb the clear appearance. Hops are very noticeable but they are a distinct hop. The hop effect is not overly tart but much smoother and bitter. There is some floral hints as well as some earthiness. This settled into a dry and bitter decent beer overcoming the early aroma.

Not too interesting lager that comes with a generous head I’ll admit. There’s better lager out there.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2008 I had this one on tap at the Bohemian Beer Garden. I actually think this lager has a decent quality. Creamy mouthfeel. It has a crisp maltyness and a flowery hop finish of late dryness. Balanced, not bad.

Tap. Golden with a little creamy white head. Mild flowery hoppyness in the aroma. Quite dry mouthfeel with some fullness to it.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. This is one boring lager (pilsner). Color is good - saturated yellow, with mostly lasting white head. Lightly malty in the aroma with some hint of bananas. Flavor is dissapointingly watery. Good hoppy finish, but to short and somewhat metallic.

A whole mess with these beers. Those double grades make a lot of mixings in here. The taste is good, and the foam quite good, but it is just normal Czech lager, nothing from outter world.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours golden orange with a small slightly fizzy head - looks slightly carbonated. Very sweet aroma with notes of malt and some skunkyness. Some caramel in the flavour, but mostly bitter, light to medium body.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle: Poured golden with an ample white head. Very little aroma, but perhaps a little whiff of skunk. Not really a lot going on flavour wise. Very thin without the hoppy bitterness of most pils. Not offensive in anyway....just really boring. I won’t be rushing out to try it again.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 mL bottle. Orangey-yellow with a bit of sticky head. Grassy aroma. Highly carbonated. Don’t like the malt in the taste (personal preference) - not enough hops. It is thin but crisp. I don’t think pilsener is my thing.
