look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Brought a 330ml can home from recent trip to Europe. A big foamy head rose to the top of my class, the color was a clear copper. The smell was definate saaz hops. Clean, crisp taste. Slight sweetness gave way to a bitter after taste. Normal czech beer carbonation. As it tastes so natural you could drink a few of these. Nice czech pils, no suprises but thats not a bad thing.

3.35/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Saturated yellow body with a decent amount of carbonation. Finger thick bone white carbonated head.

Smell: Strong smell of bitter hops hits the nose followed by mellow hints of malt breadiness that isn't really bread. Can't put my finger on that one.

Taste: Bitterness hits the tastebuds follow by slight hint of malts. The two aren't overpowering each other. In fact the taste is gone after half a pint.

Mouthfeel: Light carbonation. Very sessionable.

Overall: Would drink this if I didn't have any much choice. But not drinking it again for the sake of drinking it any time soon.

Serving type: bottle

Gambrinus, ABV: 5.0%.
500 ml bottle, 15.90 SEK at Systembolaget.

I had this beer once about a year ago. At the time I loved Czech Pilseners and I thought this was one of the best I've ever had. Let's see if it's as good as I remember!

A: It pours golden (with hints of copper), with a thick, white, foamy head. Lovely.

S: The aroma is malty with notes of butterscotch, bread and citrus. It doesn't smell like hay and brewery in the same way as an Urquell, but my feeling is definitely Czech.

T: Soft, very balanced, tastes of toffee and bread. Medium bitterness (and a body to match), nothing is extreme here, just pleasant. A very elegant, and robust lager.

M: Real smooth. Filling, yet it's very drinkable, and a somewhat dry finish.

O: I sure have widened my beer taste over the year, but a great Czech Pils is never wrong. This is still one of my favourites - it doesn't get much better for this kind of money. I'll drink this on its own, or with meats, sausages, or a sturdy sandwich.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Half litre bottle. Poured into HB flute. Big foamy head from half the bottle but it went fast. Bronze, copper colour. Nutty smell, definate saaz hops in there as well. Clean, crisp taste. Some mushroom and parmesan cheese. Slight sweetness gave way to a bitter after taste. Normal czech beer carbonation. As it tastes so natural you could drink a few of these. Nice czech pils, no suprises but thats not a bad thing.
