Appearance: Dačický Světlý Leák pours a light yellow colour along with a white crown of decent height (1½") with relatively big bubbles.
Smell: Primarily burnt malt and toffee.
Taste: First and foremost a powerful delivery of a bitterness, a syrupy sweetness. The bitterness follows through from the alpha to the omega of this beer and in combination with it's high wort-content it gets a distinctively bread-like character.
Mouthfeel: Rather full, for a beer of this particular style, the carbonation is mild but present.
Drinkability: A obvious bitterness, but not overwhelmingly so. Finally, for a beer this style (Czech Pilsner of the "light" character) it's very a "dark" in a lot of it's categories - pleasantly surprising!

The bottled variant got an alcoholic content of 4.1% abv.
The colour is pale gold, the off white head is thick, uneven and two fingers high.
The smell is clean, malty and a bit bitter.
The taste got clan notes of neutral malts; it is somewhat sweet and bitter. The aftertaste is long, malty with some notes of yeast and meat stock.
The carbonation is fresh, but it is a bit short with medium-sized bubbles.
Jost another OK Czech pils...

Tasted this beer on tap at a historical pub in Kutna Hora on 29/06/05. According to the waitress it's their "yeasted", i.e. unfiltered, beer.
It pours a slightly cloudy, pale amber hue, with a rocky white head settling to a very thin layer of tiny bubbles... quite low in carbonation compared with other pilsners tasted. It smells of slightly green-apple aroma, and light yeasty note--overall softly fruity hops combine with very pleasantly maltiness on the nose. The taste is a bit too thin for the aroma, or perhaps because it was served a bit too cold--it's lightly malty against a refreshing but soft mouthfeel of Zatec hops throughout. Typical of Czech světlý leák, or pale lager, I would say, but the body and flavour are both lighter than expected of the unfiltered version at such strength (6%abv, according to the waitress). Highly quaffable beer this is, but I've bumped into a lot of more complex and enjoyable unfiltered pilsners on tap during my visit.
