3.14/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a very clear light yellow colour, with ridiculous and boisterous streams of carbonation wildly dancing through the glass. Head is full and frothy, and pure white. Body is very light, head is persistent, but not sticky. All up, it's a great looking Czech pils.

Nose is slightly sweaty and grainy, with a twang of metallic hops making an appearance around the edges. Slightly dusty and dry. Clean, but very light.

Taste is similar. It has a crisp grain character through the front, and a metallic, slightly rusty flavour on the back, which gives it a almost a sense of tartness or aspirin astringency on the finish. Light bodied and clean. The feel is fluid and soft, and the exuberant carbonation is surprisingly not harsh.

Overall, this is a very good approximation of a true Czech pils. That is to say, the sort of Czech pils you pick up for 50c in a corner store in Prague. There are better ones out there.

2.57/5  rDev -19.4%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Served on-draught into a Norrebro stem-goblet at Norrebro in July 2011. It was advertised to be 5.0%, not 5.20%. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a one finger head of very slight cream, fair thickness, and poor retention. Colour is a semitransparent yellow.

Sm: Cream, stale barley, and caramelized malt. A mild strength aroma.

T: Cream, malt, and barley. Simple but decent. Nothing special. Fairly balanced but poorly built.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Fairly complementary of the flavour.

Dr: Very drinkable, fair ABV, and a standard Danish price. Very forgettable all things considered.

3.28/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Light, yellow and almost completely transparent fluid runs into the glass. Low, but fairly thick head that doesn't linger, drops away pretty fast.

S: Refreshing kind of soap, elderberry, lemon and yeast. Everything very gentle and mild everything here. Also a very vague hint of almond cheese.

T: Also very discreet and vague, but still tones of toffee, butter and honey. Still I sense almond. I found myself write "Gueuze?" but I don't know.
In addition to the above, the carbonation and experiencing of bubbles are almost none what so ever, still a nice mouthfeel but I would actually have wished for a smaller bottle. This gets a bit too much actually and maybe I should have split it with someone. Why 60 cl? Other than that, a very drinkable Pilsener (which I don't drink that many of to be honest).

3.6/5  rDev +12.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

On-tap, served in 10-cl., conical sample glass.

Golden hue. Mellow hop aroma. Taste is dominated by pleasant, soft hoppiness, too. Decent finish. Pleasant mouthfeel and good drinkability.

Seems like a cross between the traditional Danish lager style and the Czech pilsner style. Not bad at all.
