Clear golden with thin head. Mild Skunky aroma and some corn too. Kind of watery, some sweetness from the malt, but nothing special here.

Pours small head which goes away within a minute. Sweet and sour flavors, slightly better than the mediocre American lagers, but at least it is cheap at Whole Foods.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2008 Great beer. Small white head. Earthy, nutty flavour with tasty hints of citrus and grass. Great crispy flavour. Need to try. Best slovak beer I have had. Bought at Superstore Liquorstore. Can also get at bottlescrew Bills old english pub calgary, AB.

Chyba najpopularniejsze piwo czeskie w Polsce. Szału w smaku nie ma ale fajnie wygląda "inne" piwo w lodówce. Kupićmożna w każdym markecie w Polsce.

Bottle. Pours on the deeper side of golden with a small, quickly fading head. This beer is crisp and tart, with a floral hop/malt balance. Very drinkable and refreshing.

tomer (3736) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAR 20, 2008
0.5Lbottle. Small head wich disolves quite quickly,crystal clear golden colour with lively carbonation, strong hoppy aroma with floral notes and some metalic notes in the back. Bitterness is much too strong bordering on the unpleasant, the aftertaste combines a little sweetness wich makes it quite pleasant. A satisfiyng pilsener.

Upon opening the bottle, I immediately get a strong skuned aroma. However, a Chinese beer I had a few months ago still dominates this one’s skunkyness. Clear yellow, moderate to large head, not much for lacing or retention. Skunked aroma, bread, grain, sugary. Lighter body, some alcohol in the finish. Not good.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2008
So we drive way out west to Sydney’s Vietnamese enclave of Cabramatta and immerse ourselves in a bustling world of noodle stalls, sugar cane juice vendors and unfamiliar seafood. Close your eyes and you could almost be in Asia. I spot a bottle shop and wander in on the off-chance I might find some obscure Viet or other Asian imports. Lo and behold, there are four beers I haven’t had before. Two Italians, a Mexican and this Slovak. Go figure. I get talking to a charming Vietnamese-Australian local and ask her about the beer situation. She says: "In Vietnam, we import Australian beer. There is no reason to reverse the process." Fair enough. This Slovak pils showed decent head retention. Bizarre floral/herbal aroma for a pils. Tangerine bath salts and violets atop oxidsed cardboard. Perhaps a sharp minty note. Not entirely unpleasant to smell but really unusual. The soapy mouthfeel and soft carbonation is the best thing about it. All malts on the tongue. Soft citrus and peach. Peculiar stuff. (500ml bottle from Vintage Cellars, Cabramatta. BB15/7/08)

xcris (3) - ROMANIA - FEB 22, 2008 does not count
Bottle (Slovakia): draft quality pilsner, a bit light as appearance, a bit heavy upon. Some sweet with yeast flavour; Draught: passable, but with moderation; Can: forget it!

jbuzz (838) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 15, 2008
a nice basic pilsener. golden color a little cloudy. rather light and slightly bitter. overall not bad.
