12 oz green bottle. Freshness date on back label.
Pils serving glass.
Pale golden in color with a foamy white on top and loads of sticky and trailing lacing. A clean fresh-mowed lawn smell mingles with dried spicy Saaz hops. A mild malt aroma is in the background throughout. A very lightly roasted slightly sweet maltiness gives way to sharp, edgy metallic and resinous hop bitterness. Very drinkable brew!

i really like it, soft maltiness, with a icely bitter finish, very elegant, subtle and just plain good, very good for session drinking aswell.

Pours a deep golden color with a decent amount of white creamy head that fades away pretty quickly. Smells floral and a little citrusy, not bad. Tastes a little light struck (damn you, green bottles!) and sweet with a lot of hop bitterness that I can't place, possibly saaz. It's a bit grassy and a bit citrusy. It's really tasty. Finishes a little sour. Mouthfeel is heavy with some tingling from the carbonation, but not much. Not really creamy, just heavy. Overall, it's a very drinkable beer, I just wish it was cheaper or didn't come in green bottles, as I can't afford a case of the stuff.

Very clean and crisp, with moderate hops. Not bad from the bottle, but on tap is vastly superior. In the tap version, I sometimes get just the barest hint of spearmint in the finish. Of course, the pink elephants show up a little while after that.

A - A nice golden brown colour with a small head, minimal lacing.

S - Hoppy and yeasty, very pleasant.

T - Slightly metallic, hoppy, yeasty aftertaste. Minimal alcohol taste.

M and D - Slight carbonation, which I like. Too much carbonation spoils the experience for me. Not too much of an alcohol taste, a nice smooth lager. Very drinkable, especially at backyard BBQ's.

This is an old favorite. I've walked past the brewery on the other side of the river in Prague a bunch of times.

Pours a beautiful clean straw color. Head is frothy and full. Nose is malty and a little sweet.

Taste is clean and crisp with a balanced base with a hoppy, slightly metallic finish. Texture is dry and satisfying.

This is a classic Czech pilsner with a good taste and finish that doesn't leave your throat tasting like sawdust after multiple drafts, as you occassionally get with the style.
