Deepstraw gold with a slight clinging lace. Mildly malty grainy, low-key hop aroma. Starts thin to bitter, ending lingering oily hop. Meager malt profile causing balance to tip too far to the hop end. It's drinkable but not worth a search.

Seems to be similar to a Pilsner Urquell, also in a green bottle. This is from a large brewer and is better than the majors over here, the ABV is 5.2%.

The initial aroma from the 12 oz. bottle was extremely skunky. After pouring, the skunk dissipated a bit. I could then detect some of the beer's true characteristics. Perfect light, effervescent mouthfeel. Nice semi-sweet malt and herbly, spiced hop finish. Unfortunately, some skunk essence still remained. I'll have to seek this one out on tap.

The largest brewer in The Czech Republic..why can't A-B or Miller make beer this good...Only average for Czech Rep. but much better than the swill we're used to here...I'm not sure where exactly the old spring that gives the beer its name is.

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.
