Bottle. Pours a clear pale golden body with thin head. Aroma is lightly fruity, light graininess. Flavor is crisp, smooth, slightly bitter, light fruitiness. Good pilsner.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2007
Light gold color with faint carbonation and ultra thing white head. Light grain nose with a metallic tinge. Heavy grain body with faint caramel finish and light hop bite. Much thicker than I’d expect.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2007
Pours gold-amber with a one-finger white head. Very grainy, grassy aroma with a hint of underlying sweetness and a touch of clove. Pale malt in the flavor, along with a medium dose of Saaz. The hop flavor seems to be spread out over the entire sip instead of showing itself at the end. The result is a lack of the...snappiness that I think a great pils should have. Drinkable, though, and the brown bottle is definitely a plus.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Clear amber with a smallish head. Aroma of light malt and floral hops (saaz, unskunked). Very easy drinking. Light body. Definition bohemian. It’s almost like I picked up this bottle in Europe!

12 ounce bottle. Shaker glass. Golden with a thin head. Aroma was grainy with a hint of malt. The flavor was light and hoppy with some bitterness and a touch of malt. Crisp and drinkable.

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear gold with 1-finger whitish head. Aroma is pale malt, honey, apricot, some hopcitrus. Tastes pale malty, with honey sweet notes up front, giving way to hopcitrus and some apricotty notes.

Somehow this obscure Czech brew (heretofore unknown to my Czech wife) has suddenly become widely available in my neck of the woods. A good thing too, as it’s a subtle, well-balanced rendition of the style. Kudos for the brown bottle that every Czech pils sent abroad ought to have.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Pours straw with white head. Flavor is sweet malt with Saaz hops, nicely balanced. Also some fruit and bread mixed in. Very nice and quaffable. Well Done.

12 oz. bottle labelled "Vyskovske pivo." The appearance of the bottle is identical to that shown in the picture on this page. Aroma prominently features Saaz hops. Apple juice and grape juice scents. Smells like a darker beer than it is (i.e., slightly dunkel-like in the nose). Pours a clear gold with a small amount of brief white head. Hoppy, buttery, salty flavor. Fruit tastes abound: tart apples, crabapples, and white wine. Long, subtle, bitter aftertaste. Medium to full in body. Crisp and lively in the palate. Easy to drink and thirst-quenching. That beer really hit the spot! It’s a supremely worthy European pilsner. I am confident that it would stand up well to multiple tastings, even in a single sitting. Very accessible. This is what pale lagers should taste like. If you’re in the mood for a classic Czech pilsner and are tired of Pilsner Urquell, Czechvar, and the like, Vyskovské Exportní 12° is a solid alternative.

Parrothead (294) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2007
Pours a honey-golden color with a big, rocky white head. The great Saaz hops come through in the nose. A nice touch of malt sweetness balanced by the Saaz - a perfect blend for a Bohemian Pilsener. JK is right - a bigger sip really lets the flavors of the malt and hops shine.
