Half litre bottle. Poured into pils flute, clear, copper colour, foamy head. Slight soapy smell, also some saaz. Tasted a bit of parmesan cheese, also a hint of apple. Fairly bitter finish. Decent for the price. Nice drinkable beer, there are better czech beers out there but you cant go too far wrong with czech lager.

My bottle actually says Pils, but it's a very similar label to this one and it appears that they only make 4 types of beer, so I'm fairly sure this is right.

A: Clear and orange with intermittent carbonation. Healthy yet quickly dissipating head.

S: Metallic but fruity malts, like many German beers.

T: It oddly reminds me a lot of this very cheap beer I used to buy in the US. Slightly tart and dirty malt. A bit of sweetness. Not
great.

M: Mouthpuckering in a strange way.

D: It's not a great beer. Given that, I could still drink it.

My first encounter with this Czeck brewed beer, a pilsener (what else?).
I heard people had good experiences with this Breznak. I'm not a great fan of this style, but I thought I'd give it a chance.

Colour golden, fast reducing head, hardly any carbonation.
Smell is malty, yeast and hoppy. Actually, the fresh hoppiness is the only thing that is different from most lagers I know. It's just more fresh.
Taste is malty, hoppy, but also chemical and soapy somehow. Bitter aftertaste, but the sweet malts are dominant.
As most of the beers in this style, it's easy drinkable as sessionbeer, but also quite disappointing as a whole: just too one-dimensional.

So, if you like pilsener, you can pick this one as well as the next one.
I had expected more, but what can you do?

I'll drink it up, but I won't buy more of this.

A: Pours golden with a white sparkeling large creamy head.

S: Floral hops and some faint bitter ones as well, pure malt.

T: Bitter hops and some faint floral ones (quite the opposite from the smell!). Bready malt, thought a bit funky and rough. There are some green apples in the taste as well.

M: The aftertaste is a bit short but holds a nice dry bitterness. The body as well as the carbonation is medium.

D: Nice, but nothing to write home about. Better than almost all "industrial" lager.

Pours a standard lagery colour with a steady amount of carbonation. Little head that dissipates quite quickly. Unimpressive.

Aroma is thick with a lot of honey and bitter herbal hops. Simple but aromatic.

Don't like the flavour at all, far too heavy on the malt. Starts with an unpleasant cloying sweetness on the front palate. Almost like liquid sprinkles or something. Descends into a subdued hoppy palate but is still overwhelmed by that horrible liquid sugary stuff. Mouthfeel is sticky and dreadful, again like liquid sprinkles.

Am completely unimpressed by this, would not recommend without medical supervision.

Drank this straight from the bottle, chilled.
A great tasting beer for a reasonable price. Czech lager at its best, nothing too fancy, sweet taste with a metallic aftertaste.
Easily drinkable, can see myself having a couple of this at one sitting.
This is my first review so be easy on me.
