Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!

Leicht getrübt, herrliche Blume. Das Bier hat einen aussergewöhnlich stark ausgeprägten Eigengeschmack. Der Nachgeschmack ist kaum zu definieren, aber es schmeckt einfach fantastisch. Zum Mittelteil lässt das malzige Aroma etwas nach und der Hopfen kommt mehr zum Vorschein. Ein ungewohntes, aber sehr geiles leckeres Bier!!!
draft at the brewery. clear golden yellow body with a fine-bubbled white head. some diacetyl noticed in the nose, some cracker pils malt, light honey, light lemon. slightly syrupy texture, a little slick and oily, some butter/diacetyl and sulfur noticed. disappointing body dissolves early as it first touches the palate. okay overall.

on tap at the slunce ve skle festival. golden with a small but lasting white head. very soft texture, quite grassy with a trace of menthol and some peachy malt. quality stuff, could have been a touch more bitter, but i can imagine this as an excellent session beer Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2008
1.5l PET bottle, thank you frankenland! Hazy pale golden yellow, very creamy and persistent white head. Superb hoppy nose. Full-bodied, bitter-sweet. Pleasantly malty with lovely hoppy flavours (Saaz), resiny and grassy and with some fruity notes. Perfect smooth and velvety carbonation and moutheel. Very well balanced, every sip is a pleasure. Superb stuff! Absolutely fantastic. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2008
Back from a Czech Republic pub-crawl this is part of my express ratings for the “typical” Světlý 11°- (Czech light Pils), Světlý 12°+ (Czech Pils), Polotmavý (Czech Amber Lagers) and Tmavý (Czech Black Lagers). Non-typical beers will receive personalized descriptions after the express ratings.TaktikMTL (7798) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2008
How: Tap at brewpub (Pivovar Velkorybnický Hastrman, Velky Rybnik, Czech Republic)
The look: Almost clear yellow body with a large white head
To me a typical Czech Světlý 11° and below is: Well malted body with lots of smooth cereals and a light fresh honey sweetness flavour. Some fruity notes (more fruity notes than in the 12°+) with mostly citrus fruits and a little lemon. The finish is somewhat herbal and citrusy with but unlike the 12°+ there is only a hint of the dry grassy bitterness usually associated with noble/Saaz hops. Bitterness is mild and does not really play a big role in the overall flavours spectrum. A light meringue sensation and an overall freshness impression.. Carbonation is typically very soft. These beers are low in intensity but very refreshing and drinkable in scarily large quantities.
This one: As above but with a bonus of mango and lemon pie. Superbly well done and drinkable is enormous quantities.
En fût. Pinte dégustée directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur d’houblon avec une pointe de miel. Apparence: La couleur est blonde légèrement voilée. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût d’houblon et de céréale. Courte durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement aqueuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de céréale en arrière goût.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2009 My Bottom Line:
An inspiring balance of honeyed hay and herbal hop minutia graces this chewy yet poundable Nefiltrované Bohemian Pilsener. Another highly successful Velkorybnicky brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-Strudy foam decorates the hazy pale blond.
-That subtle Saaz bitterness builds with every sip.
-I found this to be very Kacov-like in its subtlety, balance, smoothness, and overall amazing quality.
-This one has a very chewy body for an 11°.
-The 1.5-liter bottles we brought back to the hotel weren’t as good though (3.7-3.8), but they had been pre-filled so I don’t know how long they had been sitting in their fridge.
