I know it ain't what it was, but it's still pretty damn fine.
This is the only lager I drink on a semi-regular basis and still my favorite standard lager. (I do prefer rauchbier, but that's scarcely standard lager.)
The rich, oily mouthfeel has faded a bit (no more pitched lined vats, more's the pity), but you still get that slightly skunky whack of Zatec.
As well, the canned version seems to have stood up to the changes better than the bottled. While the can has always been safer than those damned green glass bottles, these days it seems to retain more of the hop flavour than even unsedimented glass.

12oz. bottle poured into pint glass. Reviewed from brief notes.
A: Pristine golden color with a slightly off-white head that fades quickly to a foamy cap. A few wisps of lace linger along the sides of the glass.
S: A bit earthy with a lot of grainy aromas. Some bready malts as well. Weak hops beg for attention, but never quite take the lead.
T: Bready malts up front, with a bit of sweetness. A light hop bitterness underneath. Finishes strange and slightly metallic.
M: Fairly light, but heavier than the average BMC offering. Crisp and invigorating carbonation. Finishes slightly dry.
O: Definitely a drinkable beverage, but not one I'd visit solely for enjoyment. This is best paired with food and outdoor activities. Served its purpose well at a BBQ after a long day of work.
