Picked up this beer as an alternative to Budvar, as there was none available at the time.
The beer comes in a standard 500ml brown bottle with simple information stating the name, and the brewery etc. Upon opening the bottle theres an instant reminder that this is a Czech brewed pilsner, the aroma is typical of Budvar only perhaps slightly less aromatic.

Pouring the beer delivers a thin head which will remain for less than a minute, leaving a little head residue around the rim of the glass. The colour is a gark golden amber, slightly darker than that of say Budvar.

The beer has a sharp, bright taste, with a fairly strong tastes of hops. Very pleasing to drink, little aftertaste although faint hops and a slight malty dryness.

All in all, a very nice beer at a resonable price. Definatly a good substitute for budvar, and could compete with it or any other czech pilsners.

half decent czeck pils, yes, a little bit cheap and nasty in comparison with other czeck pils, but it was still OK, i picked somespicyness from the hops, and it was malty at first and then bitter on the finish, in the end, i thought it was quite well balanced without being exceptional.

Pours a deep clear golden color with plenty of creamy white head that doesn't fade in a hurry. Smells hoppy, spicy and a little floral. Not bad. The taste is also fairly hoppy and bitter enough to finish clean, but there is some nondescript sweetness there too to balance it a bit. The mouthfeel is very heavy and a bit tingly. Overall, it's a very drinkable beer. I wouldn't have any problem drinking six of these.

500ml brown bottle. best before 04/06

pours a slightly darker shade of gold than expected. clear,with very light carbonation. head isfrothy and white, settles to a thin layer that resembles crop circles.

aroma is full, but leans a bit too much on malt sweetness for my liking. just missing that sharp hop character that can make this style so enjoyable.

flavor has a lot going for it. just falls short in the delivery. a drier, crisper mouthfeel, and sharper hop character would go a long way here.

overall, this is a really enjoyable pils. kicks ass over most macro lagers available, but still leaves room for improvement.

a: Pale honey/gold, nice white & frothy
s: Balanced hop & malt, grain notes. Subtle aromas of iced coffee or vanilla icecream.
f: Chewy Munich malty flavours, giving way to balanced hop herbals.
m: Light, zingy & spritzig, medium late bitterness. The malt body from the mid palate onwards is chewy and pleasant, but not cloying or sticky.
d: An enjoyable pilsener, and recommended

one of the more surprising beers ive had this year. wasnt expecting a hell of a lot from this brew, but it eneded up being a full flavored and very drinkable effort.

darker than usual in its golden hue, had a full, creamy white head that had excellent retention. nice malty nose with a sweetish tinge and some apple and pear like scents present. fine level of malt flavor. again with orchard fruits and a firm crispness that was also clean and had subtle tones of saaz hops that was not as forceful as ive had in other czech pilener/lagers, but definately there and definately enjoyable. medium bodied, but very tasty and finished in a most agreeable fashion.

from the same stable as pilsner urquell, its nowhere near as complex as that beer. but as a session beer that will never let you down in any department, this is a cheaper option that in its own way is no less drinkable. there are beeter czhech beers than this, but its solid and worthy of consideration for any beer drinking occasion
