4.5/5  rDev +25.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Poured from a 16.9 oz Euro bottle purchased on 06/01/10. No freshness date noted.

Rich and a slightly darker golden in color, this pilsner poured out with solid effervescence and an okay head which ultimately left nice yet delicate lacing along the side of the glass.

Aromas wafting of the Czech Saaz hops. Crisp and clean in the nose. Subtle yet definable.

Smooth on the palate, the balance between the malts and Saaz hops work together hand in hand. While so many representations of pilsners (both Czech and German) tend to be overly sweet or hoppy, the level ground Zatec has found with this classic speaks to the true definition of a Bohemian Pilsner.

Quaffable to say the least, by the time this bottle was gone, I was ready for more. And at 4.6% ABV, this beer will be a mainstay in my arsenal for a long time.

Na zdraví!

3.59/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.
