3.5/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Clear dark golden colour with thick foamy white head. Malty nose. Aroma is sweet soft malts with fruits. Flavor is soft malt and hops. Dry long-lasting hoppy finish. Medium carbonation. A typical easy to drink Czech Pilsener and a very good one at that, but a few notches below Pilsner Urquell.

Virginia

3.5/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Golden, honey-colored; medium head; fairly long lasting; good lacing

Aroma: Not a lot of aroma; slightly grassy, biscuity and light hops

Taste: Juicy malt on start; quickly turning to slight bitterness; slightly dry, slightly bitter finish; not bad at all; pretty well balanced; good for a Pils, which is not my favorite style

Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

Serving type: bottle

3.21/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Can purchased in a Saigon supermarket and appears to have been brewed by SABMiller Viet Nam, so may not be fully indicative of the true Czech recipe.

Pours a very light golden colour with an impressive white head that disappears very quickly, leaving no lacing. Aroma actually includes elements of a Czech pilsner, with a real Saaz or closely related hop, but unfortunately there are elements of adjuncts as well. Given my location I would assume rice, but may also be corn - but has that "sweetness" in aroma that doesn't imply 100% malted barley. The flavour is very clean and crisp, but lacking any depth or complexity. I can't get much beyond the non-barley sweetness, but there is a hint of hops in the finish.

By far not the worst beer I've had this past week, but not one I would ever choose if in Europe or North America.
