I think this is the right beer; it says Lezak on the bottle (which looks slightly different to the one in the photo) but maybe it is the funny little accent above the Z which is excluded from the name. Anyway, it is 4.8% pilsner from Cerna Hora so its close.

Served cool from 500ml bottle.

L) Medium amber, clear, nice tight foamy white head. Lots of small bubbles. The look of a good pilsner.

S) Fresh bready malt and a touch of saars hops; spot on for the style and quite appealing.

T) A nice deep tasty malt flavour that isn't quite balanced out by the hops. No real bitterness to it, and it ends up with a hint of sweetness.

F) Seems refreshing at first, but there is a bit of a drying effect after a minute.

O) Better than average Czech pilsner, recommend it if you are a fan of the style.

Pours clear golden, one finger head that lasts a bit, recedes to a thin lace.
Smell of (a bit) sweet malts, some faint wood, pinch of salt, faint hops.
Surprised by the hops in the taste, from start to finish. A small touch of fruit, besides the mildly sweet malts, and dry leaves in the start. Some clearer apple later one, spicy feel, faint old floorboard. Stewed hops with a nice spicy bitterness in the finish.
Light bodied, medium to high carbonation, a bit dry. There's a faint hint of skunk in there, but doesn't really disturb. Aftertaste is nice, tho a bit chaotic.
Close to being good, has some off notes that you can't really put your finger on, but they're not too disturbing.

Light golden blond color, with a beautiful fluffy white head.
In the smell a light maltiness, maybe a bit of off flavours, and some hop.
At the taste it is more hopped, and more balanced. Light malt, good hop.
Drinkable, but nothing exceptional.
Light to average body, an average hop in the aftertaste, not too long.
