I would say I must agree with most of the people who talk about this beer. Had this at 1. Slovak Pub in Bratislava, a great environment. The beer is served in what is called tankovar in Slovakia (and in Cech Republic too) which means it is brought in unpasteurized in tanks. This gives the beer a distinct earthy taste that is not found in the bottled version. In Slovakia of course, this beer is far cheaper than in North America, so it may not be worth buying if you live in Americas. Instead, perhaps try another more widely available Cech pilsner such as Staropramen or Pilsner Urquell.

Appearance - Pours an apple juice/straw yellow with a finger width of white bubbly head.
Smell - Grains, adjuncts (corn), hint of bready malts, lemon rind.
Taste - Grains, malts, grassy hops, light bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall - A step above from the other Euro Pale Lagers that I have tried in the past. There is a nice grassy hop finish that stands out in this brew in comparison to its competition.

It's hard to write a really long review for a big Euro lager because they are all so similar. This one is a cut above the rest, however.
Eastern and Central Europe make some fantastic big brews. Being from Eastern Europe myself, I say lots of North Americans must look past the stereotypes that the area is a shithole and just get some beer from there. They will be better than any Becks or Heineken you enjoy.
This beer pours a really medium yellow - not nearly as pale as coors light or that kind of stuff. The head is pretty generous at 3 fingers' worth and the smell is really hoppy, almost like a proper pilsner. The taste is fantastic for a Euro lager - it is much more hoppy than any of the big brands, with a smooth finish and a pleasant lingering bitterness on the tongue. If you enjoy a good pilsner, you'll take well to this. Definitely grabbing this again.
