12 oz bottle purchased at some unremembered quality beer store in the midwest, Dec 2005. Wow, only five previous ratings for this sucker? That’s amazing...must be new to these shores and not terribly sought after as it’s not a barrel-aged-Imperial-Belgian-strong-dryhopped-infu thingie. But I digress. Sampled at cellar temp, from a Christoffel glass. A frothy, snowy cap loses its power fairly quickly atop the dark amber, slightly bubbly body...touches of lacing remember the glass....aroma is more malt than hops, a touch of honey in the pale graininess, but some fine saaz spiciness does find its way out....body is fairly juicy and wet to begin with, but dry, harsh bitterness attacks at midpalate, crushed bitter herbs (thyme, marjoram) help lend interest to the assault and the pale malt backdrop is sufficient to hold it together...just....I wish there was a bit more liveliness to the carbonation, and the bitterness were more apparent upfront, perhaps less so towards the end....the final effect is a bit too sweet to start and a bit too hard to finish. But it’s quite drinkable and better than any number of well-known examples....

This was...surprisingly o.k. I had low expectations, but I found it rather rich and interesting. Deep color, like a hint of carrot juice colored a golden beer. Good aroma, with obvious caramel notes. Sweetness jumps out from the tasting, but interesting hops (though not the driving force). Good for what it is. Bottle.

Medium yellow, clear, slight head fades quickly. Aroma is of pale malts, a touch of honey sweetness, and some softly floral hops. Somehow though, this wasn’t working for me with this beer. Solidly malty lager, with very limited hop character. What was there was faintly floral, but more than anything else, this was malty sweet. Not my thing, too bad. I should note that I usually am way above the average score on pils beers, not way below.

What a difference a brown bottle makes. Most of these are in clear and green bottles and have awful aromas. This one was decent. Had the aroma of light malt and sweetness. Pour was a medium gold with a one finger white head. Taste was a little sweet with mostly light malt making a presence. No hop bite or even appearance. Could use a little more carbonation, but all in all pretty good.

Aroma is malt, hops and spice? Dark amber, pours a short lived, thick, white head. Strong malt aroma, some mineral qualities too, hops at the end, and some metalic hints. Medium bodied, an appreciable level of bitterness, easy drinking. Pretty good.

Shag (3041) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2008
A random find in my neck of the woods. A cloudy yellow appearance with a white head. The aroma was quite floral with some grassy notes and lemons. The flavor was slightly bitter but mostly malty with some creamed corn, lemons, and herbal notes. This one reminds me of Budvar which I like. Overall a nice pils!

Bottled as Vyskovske Pivo. Nice golden color with a puffy white head that laces slightly but otherwise disappears to a film. Nice clean hoppy bite in the nose and the malts are simple but strong and clean. Just a bit of skunk, thankfully this is brown bottled unlike the green bottled Czechvar. Nice flavor and a crisp bite make this an easy drinking clean finishing pilsener.

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.

Vyskovske Export reaches American shores and is found in Newark, NJ, of all places. This sucker is metallic and hoppy as hell! I’m talking a real Czech hop whomp. Not much malt or yeasty funk. I’m pretty suprised by this brew.
