muzzlehatch (4877) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2008
500 ml bottle from Richmond Beverage in Richmond, VT (April 2008) served a few minutes out of the fridge from a Christoffel glass. Minimal white head dies quickly atop pale amber-gold body....fairly sweet aroma, decent malt base evident, very faint light grassy hops grow a little bit with warmth....body is on the sweet side also, not really crisp or dry enough and the hops just aren’t there; there’s also a hint of staleness and some cigarette ashiness, but with no visible date on the bottle, how am I to know how long it took to get here? Quite mediocre, but drinkable overall..

BeardedAvenger (366) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle at home, 20/08/16. Bought from Beers of Europe. Sharp but sweet aroma. Not overly strong but tickles the nose. As to be expected, the head is initially extremely frothy and creamy. However as some legs to it and does not just fade away. Light gold, slightly bubbly. Very soft bodied and smooth. Sweet with a a trace of bitterness in the finish. Goes well with my Chicken Kiev. Pleasent. May have given it lower marks if I was in a different mood and wanting more depth.

Grzesiek79 (4095) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 6, 2016
Dobry czeski pilsner ze srednia slodowoscia i spora dawka chmielu. Zatecki to gra pierwsze skrzypce. Jest aromatycznie w smaku zywicznie i w koncowce bardzo gozko. Kolor zloty jaskrawo zolty, ze spora zdobiaca szklany pokal piana sniezno biala, do tego bardzo trwaly. Tak powinna wygladac pijalne i smaczne piwo. Bardzo gozko i wytrawnie
