Healthy golden color without a head. Very sweet and malty tasting. Sight grassy taste but not in the after. Citrusy at times.

Draft, bottle and can. From the lost beermat notepad from this past July Grass and hops for nose. Looks pretty in the matching glass. A proper pilsener with probably the hoppiest character to find in the Czech republic from mid body to finish. A nice solid macro.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Pours a pale amber with quickly dissipating head and carbonation. Aroma is earthy and sweet with the clearest smells being yeast, honey, corn, and hoppy citrus. Taste is light, crisp, and sweet with a malty body giving way to a crisper and sweeter finish. Somewhat sweeter compared to other lagers and pilsners, but otherwise standard fare.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A non-existant head and a solid orange-brown coloring with a slighty "off" boozy aroma but sweet and honey-like flavor.
Like most Czech beers, would be optimal alongside food such as sausages, potatoes, and braised vegetables.

Bottle... wasn’t a bad experience, but it did not stand out in any way. I would not buy this beer again.

11.2 Oz. bottle. Pours golden with a white head. A decent taste, mostly a earthy sweet malt, with a bitter finish. Pretty good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear gold with too small a head for a pilsener. The aroma is too weak, with a faint trace of Saaz. Medium body. Sweet and malty on the palate dissappearing very quickly to a dry hoppy finish. Overall it simply suffers from a lack of flavour.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Creates a massive white head, with a careless aggressive pour. Malt aroma, and not much else. A little skunked from the green bottle. That’s a little disappointing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle. Shaker glass. Golden with a medium head. Aroma -- malt, grain and some floral hops. It started out crisp with some light malt and a touch of bitterness. I thought it was comparable to Pilsner Urquell, but about mid-bottle a very floral and perfumed taste becamse apparent and I found this a little off-putting.
