BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Bottle: Golden color, light head. Nose is somewhat sweet and malty, light candy hops and a bit of husk and adjunct. Decent maltiness in the flavor and a light crisp hop finish. The mouthfeel and body is a bit thin and it has a very flavor and aroma flaws, notably that sweet fermented fruit ethanol feel you get mainly in malt liquors. Overall not horrible as international lagers go. Go Slovakia! Damage (77) - London, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2006
Pours a pale gold with a thin head and light carbonation. The nose is malty with hints or corn. Flavour is well hopped and bittersweet. (500ml bottle) JK (6254) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2006
Nothing wrong with this, except possibly too much traveling and too long on the shelf. Reaching bar back into the cooler, I tried to find a bottle with as little exposure to light as possible due to the green bottle. Fortunately this worked, and this beer is still in good condition. Considerable carbonation that explodes to create a thick white head, then setles to a lace on top of the beer. The hop aroma is much lighter than in the best of the style, but not bad, earthy and herbal. The flavor has some sweet malt, lightly hopped but enough to stand out, and a very dry finish. There are far worse out there, and this is surely a pilsner and not a pale lager. canslovak (2) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2006 does not count
On tap in Slovakia this is a world class beer. Its too bad that its shelf life is short when bottled so it leaves people with the wrong impression. This beer needs to be fresh and consumed within 3 months of being brewed. Check the expiry date which is usually a year after is was made. If it is older than 6 months dont bother. (This is the same for most czech/slovak beers!) zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 31, 2006

A fine standard helles. Golden, rich, a bit of sweetness. Malty. A touch of German style hops. Hey it’s from Slovakia! Suttree (6484) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 20, 2006
Dark yellow, no head. Corny, slightly skunky aroma. Veggie, grassy slightly sour flavors dominate. Dryish finish. Crisp, clean palate, but the skunkyness begins to take over as it warms. Hansen (8614) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2006
Á pilsener, well right, but not a special good one, It has some ok opped aroma, but the flavor is somehow too sharp, alcohol? I think not, but sharp anyway. Unpleasent sharp. HenrikSoegaard (14480) - Randers, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2006
Bottle. Frothy white good mostly deminishing head. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Light sweet and bitter flavor, a little cheasy. Average finish. Watery palate. Not my style. FrankJohansen (3622) - Sabro, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2006
