500ml bottle. No best by date.

It pours a nice deep gold but with an unconvincing head that struggles to form then turns super-soapy.

The smell is decent. A floral burst of Saaz hops and some bready malts. It smells pasteurized but not old.

The flavor is slightly spicy with a hint of orangey hops but mostly malty. It is really just layers of pale malt hitting you in different ways. Maybe a few decoctions.

That being said it still tastes off. There is just something to it that is stale or pasteurized.

On-tap at my local pub, Café Svejk in Copenhagen. Served in Bohemia Regent glass.

Deep golden colour, nice head w/ good lacing. Pleasantly hoppy aroma. Impressively full and rounded taste heavy on hops and w/ a crisp, muscular, and spicy bite to it. Long, enjoyable finish. Highly drinkable.
An assertive, well-made lager. Strongly recommended.

Ugh, this is gross. Into a dimpled mug it pours a crystalline amber color, with a feeble cap of white foam that ebbs away quickly.

Smells like cooked vegetables and raw bread dough, later some shortbread and ritz crackers.

Tastes very bland, lots of clashing elements... harsh astringency, artificial sweetness, vegetal bitterness, metallic notes, watery and generic wet paper. Underlying flavors of stale saltines and nutrasweet. This is a recent arrival to the market to my knowledge, and it's either severely mistreated or just a subpar product. Best part of this beer was the blackletter bottle cap sadly enough.

A: Pours a hazy medium to dark golden yellow in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint bright yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall soapy/sudsy white head that reduces to a medium to large sized patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of bready malts with some lighter notes of minerals (likely from hard water). There is a light to moderate aroma of floral hops and just a touch of vegetal notes.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of bready malts with a light to moderate amount of vegetal flavors. There is a light amount of mineral flavors from the hard water and a moderate amount of slightly over-boiled floral hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which lingers.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly watery.

O: Even though this beer had just arrived at the store, it tasted like it was stale/old and the hops were past there prime. Not the best example of the style but not horrible. I would probably avoid this one again in the future.

Served in a Chicago Bears shaker pint glass.

The fun and monetarily painful part of being a Beer Consultant is trying all the new stuff that comes through. This new import pours a clear sunset straw topped by a half-finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises light white bread, flowers, light hard water, and a hint of possibly-psychosomatic grass. I actually mostly agree with emerge007's use of Ritz crackers as a descriptor here, but I think that might be a tad buttery and salty for present purposes. Still, pretty close... The taste brings in more of the same, with more hard water than before and a strange vegetal character that slimes its way in and out of everything at some point. What an odd thing... The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly watery feel. Overall, this seems like a pretty poor pils. Either it's somehow already old (it just made it here, though), its travels to the States took a pretty heavy toll, or it's just a crappy beer. Tough call, here...

Comes in a .5 liter Euro-style bottle, small expiration date at the bottom. White lable with a simple picture of hops + text, states the brewery was born in 1379!

Typical Czech lager in pour (golden with quick leaving lacy white head) and not much smell. Yet this is one of the spiciest lagers I have had! Literally melts in your mouth, it is a hop head beer for sure, reminding me of IPA's I have had. Just a little sweetness to it, but the sting of the spice overwhelms it, and stays with the aftertaste. An extremely flavorful Czech lager.

Golden color. It made a thick and abundant head with good duration.
Predominant malty aroma. Beer of medium body and quite malty.
Right a way you can feel a strong and nice bitterness from its Saaz hops and then followed by a sweet malt flavor. It has some hints of vanilla. The prolonged aftertaste is also bitter. I felt some oxidation, likely to be close to expiration date, even so I bought it in Europe…

Poured at a good temperature with a small off-white head that quickly disappears leaving on a ring and few small islands and no lace. Aroma is beery, malt, hops. Flavor is good at first with some good hop bitter and carbonic tang, but then a lot of sweet after that. A little out of balance. Body and carbonation are a little weird too, from the odd sweet, bitter, tang clash. Finish like flavor with sweetness dominating and has some length, which I wish it didn't.

Yellow greenish color, clean, non bubbles. Decent head, white, but quickly falling.
At the smell a quite resolute maltiness, but nothing exceptional.
Malty taste, too, not really fresh, light hopping. Average, anonymous. No defect, but just average.
The body is average-light, malty aftertaste, with touches of hop, but the all is quite average.

BB 29/12/08, served chilled in a pint-size weizen glass.

A: pours a dark yellow to light golden hue, the white foamy head comes with restraint, retaining a 0.5cm thickness on top of lively carbonation.
S: intensely sweet grainy upfront with a touch of toasted sweet peanut, but the lager's sour-dough-iness stays aside constantly; grassy hops are everywhere, to provide the last leg of a harmonious triangle. Alas, overall the sweet level seems to overpower an achievable balance.
T: surprisingly light is the foretaste, full of juicy, lightly-toasted malts, while the grassy+spicy hops catch up fast and bring to the balance an abundant supply of mildly-chewy bitterness; bitter-sweet is the malty taste in the end, while the bitterness keeps the chewy feel thanks to a good level of hops in the mix.
M&D: effervescent but still smooth, this beer shows a lighter body than the alc. level suggests, as the alc. is very light indeed on the mouthfeel, if any at all. Not a bad strong Czech Pils overall, this beer provides plentiful juicy malts balanced by chewy hops, but fails to arrive at a more desirable complexity or depth to be a truly marvellous lager.
