From a 500ml can, freshness date stamped on the bottom. This is a bit smoother than it's bottled brethren, the nose and taste is not as bold, but even this milder version is fantastic. Plus there is no worry of any skunkiness from the bottles when drinking this from the can, it's not hit-and-miss. The perfect mode to bring an excellent beer camping with you.

I reviewed this beer from a bottle and gave it a C+...on tap it was another story.

On tap this beer was absolutely delicious!!!
Makes me think that there is just a high chance of this beer getting "skunked" in the bottle.

Beautiful hop finish, and very drinkable.

I had this beer at the brewery's restaurant in Pilsen. Served on tap in a tall pint shaped glass cool.

A-dark gold body, and a fluffy white head.

S-floral and buttery

T-cereal, butterscotch, bitter aftertaste, almost ale-like

M-medium

D-very sessionable. I don't know if I would drink this from the bottle. The one on the tour is better (from oak casks in the cellar).

On tap in Prague. There are a few beers you'll find everywhere in the czech republic, and this was probably my favorite among them.

Appearance is quite nice. Presented in a pilsner glass with a very nice, slowly receding head. The aroma is full of hoppiness and malt, though it doesn't quite help to convey the quality of beer you're about to receive. Flavor is very crisp and refreshing, with a sizeable hop bite to it. Really a fantastic pilsner. It also proves to be a very drinkable beer. I came back to it more than any other while i was in prague, and if it weren't for the drunken stupor that would result i wouldn't mind drinking this thing for hours upon hours.

I poured a 12 oz bottle into my pint glass...

The beer was a pale golden color with lots of bubbles rising from the bottom. There was a thick white head.

It smells of strong grassy hops, with lemon and a hint of skunk.

When you take a sip, bitter lemony hops bit the tongue, you can taste white bread, and some earthy hop notes.

Thre is a full body, with a crisp dry finish, perfect carbonation.

I thought it was very refreshing from start to finish.
