Pours golden with a white head that leaves some trailing lace.

The smell is grainy with a touch of sulfur, almost metallic, sharp Saaz grassy notes.

The taste is grainy and grassy - sharp Czech Saaz notes. Crisp, dry finish.

Light-to-medium bodied.

This is a very nice traditional Czech pils - very good example of the style.

The beer pours a gold color with a 1/4" white head that fades to lacing. There is a lot of carbonation lingering on the sides of the glass. The aroma is good. It has a hearty pale/pilsner malt scent that is a bit sweet along with a light Czech hop aroma. The taste is decent. It has a sweet pilsner malt flavor that goes down easy and finishes clean and dry. This seems to be an all malt beer. It's a bit thicker than I like my pilsners and it doesn't have much of a hop bite to it. The mouthfeel is decent also. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate/good carbonation. This is a damn good drinking beer, but it's not on my favorite Czech pilsner list.

Half-liter bottle,

A: Pours a translucent light orange, small white head with good retention, light lacing, great medieval label.

S: Tangy sweet malt, sourdough bread, orange, husky grain.

T: Sweet malt mixed with vegetables, some corn. Interesting grassy hop character.

M: Watery, light carbonation, thin body.

D: Fine drinkability, not the greatest lager in the world, I'm sure it would be better at the source.

Had this some years ago and it was better in my memory. Poured with a quickly fading to almost no head and a tiny bit of lace. Color is a slightly hazy deep amber. Aroma was bitter sweet, malty, a little hop, and grainy. Flavor's about the same but stronger in the sweet malt. Hint of green bell pepper of all things. Nothing special, but not bad. Ditto with the finish. Session beer - maybe...

500ml bottle 5.0% alc. Dark golden, slightly hazy beer, small off white head. Very doughy/buiscuity aromas, only a touch of hop. Wow this is a very malty, thick Bohemian Pils, chewy almost, slight lemon hop bitterness appears at the end and leaves a very nice after taste. Very good mouthfeel thick and with a great pepperyness Another good drinkable European beer this damp Oregon January day!

Poured a bright golden color with massive white puffy head. Modest retention but little lacing.
Smell is strong for malt with nice fruity aspects.
Taste is excellent. Stong bready malt, a firm crispness and a modest hop sensation at the finish.
Left a nice crisp refreshing taste in the mouth.
Perfect beer for a hot summer afternoon. Great to session.

Pours a murky yellow-orange with a huge rush of carbonation bubbles which burn themselves out quickly, leaving a diminutive, quickly fading off-white head. No lacing is left behind at first, but after a few drinks some occasional stripes of lace cling to the glass. Aroma is sweet and candy-like. The smell is unique, but that makes me wonder what my palate has in store.

Tastes a bit innocuous at first, with some malts, melon and hops all involving themselves and making for a very unique lager in the end. A certain astringency also exists. Mouth-feel and body are according to style. There's not much more to say.

I think folks who appreciate lager's might go for this one to an extent, and those who are looking for something else might not appreciate it all. That being said, I think we can all agree that variety in beer is the spice of life.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance- An off color copper amber with no head and a little lace.

Smell- Smells of cheap malt. A little beany and pasture like.

Taste- Not as bad as the smell. It is not very bitter but there are some fruity hops tones not much for malt. This is not a great beer but it is OK.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability- Not bad but not an everyday beer. A little refreshing with a mild aftertaste.

Purchased from Market Cross Pub.

A- Poured a hazy/cloudy siena color. A nice 2 finger head rises to the top and hangs around for a minute.

S- it has smells of grass and wheat. Some malt also hits me in the nose faintly. Also smells like spiced hops.

T- Malty and a light wheat flavor. It also tastes malt hoppy, if that makes any sense. I canalso taste the barley in it.

M- smooth and slightly filtered. More juicy than anything.

D- easy to put down and very smooth. no complaints and it is a decent beer. Not rough and no bad afteraste.
