A 500ml bottle with an best-before date of Oct 2011. The only unusual feature is the white foil seal over the cap.

Poured into a Guinness pint glass. Pours a light golden with fine carbonation. Very little head; what there is disappears rapidly to leave a surface film. Light malty aroma but little else.

Clean and crisp malty taste with light bitterness. Slight grainy sweetness at the back of the throat. Mouthfeel is smooth, but leaves a vaguely unpleasant aftertaste towards the end of the glass.

A fairly refreshing lager, but doesn't distinguish itself. Drinkable; would be nicer in warm weather.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Golden color with a thin head with low retention.
Aroma of pale malt, vanilla and grassy hops.
Taste follows nose, sweet malt with notes of grassy hops and a hint of minerals. Mildly dry aftertaste with medium bitterness.
Light body with low carbonation.
Average Czech Pilsner, very light and balanced with no off-flavors but also with no highlights. If this is a mass regular in Czech Republic, they are well served.

A 0.5L green bottle, not lightskunked.
A cool orangey yellow with a head that dissipates and leaves no head.
An average smell with its bitterness to it, a taste a bit monotone and a refreshing mouthfeel make this Czech lager a not bad neither outstanding brew, but more of your summer collection.
Very refreshing.

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

Clear, light amber with foamy white, finger sized head. Good retention.

Bit of skunk to start but nothing major, there is an overall sweetness to the beer & a little bit of hops in there too. Isn't an overly strong smelling beer & ranks about average.

Sweet tasting with a mix of corn, bread and mild hops. Not the most complex beer but it works.

Smooth bodied and on the light side of medium, the beer is well carbonated.

Avg. pilsener but not in a bad way, it’s pretty simple but pleasant and very drinkable. Not the best value for what you get as there are plenty of other similar beers out there but it would be one I’d be happy to drink again.

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

A: Pours clear golden with a thick medium-large white lovely head. Dissipation is slow and leaves decent lacings.

S: Floral hops in combination with bready semi-sweet malt. Grainy.

T: Bready, very bready. Only some sweetness to the malt. Grain. Both bitter hops and floral dito, but rather faint.

M: Aftertaste is rather long and holds a bready dry bitterness, reminds me of the aftertaste from Swedish crisp-bread. Body is meidum and smooth, oh so smooth. Carbonation is moderate.

O: Highly drinkable, but both taste and smell are too weak to get a higher grade.

500 ml bottle. Clear golden colour, small head that vanishes too soon. Floral smell with some bitterness, can't find much more. Body is too light, in the mouth has some bitterness but also too much sweetness from malts Crispy, refreshing, but it pales when compares to a good czech beer, nothing to do with Urquell or Budweiser. Dissapointing, at least for what I was expecting.
