Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine July 2007.

It looks like flavorful Pilsners are in style again and gun- ning for a comeback in the US--like Zatec Bright Lager, which just landed on our shores.

It's bright--crystal clear, in fact. A shade darker than we expected, but certainly within the golden realm. Big grassy, earthy aroma of spicy hops, and a long, clean grainy nose that shows a bready side. The hard pour- ing knocked out a good bit of its crispness, but the top-notch smoothness makes up for it. Moderate body. Thick on fresh grain, almost brash but the dry malt flavor and the clean husk in the finish show deep, complex features. The hop bitterness is slow to build, but it's very flavorful, with undertones of spice, rose water and lemon. Finishes semidry with an ever-pres- ent graininess.

Without a doubt, this is a good beer. For the US consumer, it's a slam dunk if you're looking for a refreshing, clean and tasty Pilsner. A hearty bowl of beef stew would make for a delicious pairing.

500 ml bottle poured into pilsener glass. Suprised to find this at the "3rd best" beer store in my area, after never seeing it at the other too. Am a fan of Czech Pilseners, so I tried it.

A - Pours a dim peach-orange color with some haze. Not much of a head. Large amounts of carbonation rising from the bottom. Not a bad looking beer.

S - Malt, and very unique for a pilsener, some peach, apricot, and even a bit of lime. Very unique.

T - Smooth maltiness, and the fruitness mentioned in the aroma's is there, too. Very unique. Lot's of peach (and not in an artificial, nasty way) and apricot. Finishes smooth with a nice flavor.

F - Very crisp and clean, leaves just a bit of dryness. Could certainly session this beer.

O - Nothing outstanding, but it's a good pilsener. One of the more unique pilsener's I've tried, considering the light fruity flavors. Light and crisp but plenty of flavor. Again, not outstanding, but a good pilsener.

Poured this Czech style Pilsener from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. This Pilsener poured a clear golden color, produced an average white head and featured below average retention and left very little lacing on the glass. The aroma consisted off fresh baked bread, and grassy hops. Medium in body, this Pilsener had a base of malted husky malted grain, touch of lemon citrus, white pepper and bitter hops. Decent example of a Czech Pilsener, I believe this to be pretty authentic. Prost!
