Needless to say, this beer is not an English bitter. Others who rated it badly may have unfortunately considered it such! Zlatopramen 11 is a perfectly decent quaffing beer to accompany with starchy food such as gnocchi or pizza. That's what these Czech lagers are brewed for. And in this vein, this is a very acceptable beer. Nice hop notes, appropriate colour, carbonation, head retention and lacing. Great to accompany such a meal - I just had a pumpkin, broccoli and sundried tomato pizza - and it was a magnificent meal. This is nothing to rush out and buy - it's not outstanding, but it is great to have in the fridge for the night you feel like one. Drinkability is very good - smooth, easy-drinking but not boring or chemical. Excellent price for what it is.

A: The beer is clear golden yellow in color and poured with a one finger high white head. No carbonation is visible.
S: There are light aromas of pale malts in the nose along with some hints of hops.
T: The overall taste is rather malty but well balanced by the underlying hops. There is just a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
D: The beer is very easy to drink and is also crisp and quite thirst quenching.

Picked this up in western Czech Republic, the bottle is Czech standard brown half-liter with a tapered neck. The label is gold and yellow with a sun figure in the middle. The ingredients list is in Czech, but definitely includes some stuff other than the purity law would allow (not sugar). Best before 9/30/04, I opened it on 8/10/04.

Pours a clear standard gold under a 1.5 finger white head that fades slowly but leaves no lace. The nose is quite malty, definitely barley, with a mild medicinal hops tone that is quite pleasant. The mouth is very prickly and fairly light. The taste opens slightly sweet and full of malt, but this quickly yields to a flowery, almost medicinal hoppy bitterness. All of this is mild, but fairly tasty. The bitterness moves towards espresso in the finish, accompanied by a fruity sweetness as they both blend into the aftertaste. Not bad.

1.5 liter Beer Pack green plastic twist-off bottle. best before 01.10.2011.

It pours a deep amberish-gold into my maß. It has a bit of an industrial-looking white head that dissipates with a few spots of lacing.

Surprisingly it isn’t skunky, maybe only very mildly skunked. Came from a store that was in a trainstaion with no light so i guess that is a plus. It is basic and grainy. It has a bit of the smell of an Augustiner or Spaten helles with that sweet honey note.

Teh flavor leans more towards bohemian pilsener. I can’t believe how good this is despite the price and packaging. It has a quintessential cech pils flavor with sweet malts, a hint of diacetyl (but not to make it buttery, just as a very light accent), and noble hops. It is surprisingly tasty, glad i have 1.5 liters.

There are far too many good beers in the Czech Republic to waste your time with this one. This one is very pedestrian.

Big bubble soda-pop head--gone in 30 seconds leaving no lace.

Caramel smell with lots of honey and maple syrup--in a word, sweet.

Surprisingly decent hop punch in the swallow; still this is a malty and creamy beer. The body is very thick--too much so for the unusually low carbonation.

My notes say "not bad in a pinch", but with so many other superior beers why go to this one.

1.5 litre bottle, poured into HB .330ml flute. Not much of a head but its difficult to gauge when poured from such a big bottle. Copper colour, clear with lots of bubbles. Smells of saaz hops with hint of cheese. Tastes like a standard czech pils with strong hints of parmesan cheese. Smoother than a german pils but has fiz. This would be a very good session and party beer.

Golden yellow, thick white frothy head, good bubbling.
Grain husks & pale malt, some DMS. Faint caramel note. Seems quite fresh. Develops a mild skunkiness fairly quickly.
Strong sweet malty flavour, not much hop to taste. Maybe some late grassiness.
Medium bodied, medium bitterness.... a touch cloying.

.5L emptied into a Pilsener.

A: Pours a pale gold with a 2-finger white head which quickly receeds to a thick ring. No lacing.

S: Sweet malt, hints of caramel as the beer warms. Not much else here.

M: Medium bodied with light carbonation.

T: Follows the nose, with sweet malts up front. Hops are present, but not commanding, through the midrange. Clean finish with a slightly astringent aftertaste.

D: A drinkable beer, no real complaints. However, this pales in comparison to other Czech Pilseners.
