A- Pours clear and golden with a slight orange hue. The head is huge but dies down quickly.

S- Grassy, with hints of pizza dough.

T- Raw dough, lemon grass, little hop bitterness.

M- A slight bite from the carbonation, medium body, biter sweet.

D- Nothing offensive. It taste like a macro beer. Meant to be swilled not enjoyed. Its easy to drink, just nothing special.

Brown 500 ml bottle, "born by date" 17/06/2009. For those not familiar with European dates, switch the first two numbers and it will all make sense. Poured into Samuel Smith half liter pint glass.

Poured with a 2 inch thick white head which vanished immediately, minimal thin lacing. Color is clear and golden.. Small columns of tiny bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass.

Smell is grainy, sulfurous, corn, stewed vegetables.

Taste is malty sweetness with a pronounced sulfur and mineral note, a small bit of hoppy bitterness at the end cleans it up a bit.

Mouthfeel is smooth and thin, very much a quaff-able brew. Carbonation is a bit lively and tingly despite the apparent lack of head.

Overall, a decent brew, nothing spectacular, but it gets the job done. I'd recommend this as a step above Heineken or other Euro pale lagers. Would go very well in the cooler at your next summer barbecue. I'll be drinking this one again.

I purchased a bottle of Krušovice Imperial for $2.79 USD in Los Angeles, CA/USA.
Look: Krušovice Imperial has light foam.
Smell: Krušovice Imperial has the aroma of both metal and wheat.
Taste: Krušovice Imperial has an ironic mix of flavours consisting of both metal and wheat.
Feel: Krušovice Imperial had the feeling of well carbonated drinking water.
Overall: People who seek a beverage that tastes of both metal and wheat will enjoy Krušovice Imperial.

No hop flavor, only bitterness. Brady and grainy. High carbonation. Balance to the hops, but carbonation accentuates the bitterness.

Pours pale golden yellow with a decent white head and slight lacing.

Smell is sweet and grainy with very slight hops.

Taste is mild bready malt with a crisp, grassy dry finish.

Mouthfeel is light but acceptable.

Drinkable, but not outstanding. Finish has more bitterness than the nose lead me to believe and really helps the flavor profile. Worth a try.

Deep gold in colour with a finger of white head. Head falls to a thin cap, but leaves some lacing.

Fresh grain smell, quite light in the aroma department. A spiciness that I can't pin down is in there as well.

A little weak in the malt, kinda cracker like. Hops seem a bit soapy, and leave a strong shampoo like aftertaste. Not my thing. Gets better as it goes, taste evens out, malt starts to balance things.

Average pilsners mouthfeel. A little too sharp in carbonation, and the body is quite light. Not watery, but not satisfying.

Wouldn't buy it again, but wouldn't really avoid drinking it.
