Draft at a pub in London
Decent foamy head, little lacking, clear apple cider color
Nose is very light, a touch of grassy herbal hop, Moore cereal grain malts, fruity lager
Taste toasted pilsner malt and cereal grains, little sweet malt, mild grassy hop very light bitterness, quite fruity lager notes, mild soft lager, dry quick clean finish long herbal hop bitterness

Mouth is lighter bod, decent carb

Overall to light on everything for a real Czech pils

The version of this beer sold in Sainsbury in the UK bears little relation to any other Czech beer I have tasted, either in Prague or the UK. Thin, fizzy, metallic and lacking body. Own label Co-op Czech lager is VASTLY superior.

Served on tap in 0.5 L Starompramen glass, alongside the Vltava river in Prague. Clear, pale gold with a lush, thick head of white foam and good lace. Pale malt grain and grassy hop aroma. Good malt base with slight grain sweetness, and bitter, grassy hop finish. Medium body with smooth, light to medium carbonation. A good, balanced Czech pilsener, slightly less bitter and crisp than Urquell and others.

A:
Pours crystal clear, rich gold with a perfect puffy glop of white head that sticks like glue before eventually dissipating. Great retention; sheets of lace. (4.25)

S:
Balance between grains and light hop spice with some wet cereal sweetness. (3.25)

T:
Cereals, lightly grassy, Some peppery and herbal hop in the finish as it warms it gets pretty sweet for me. (3.5)

M:
Zesty yet creamy body with medium carbonation and a slight bite in finish. (3.75)

O:
Pretty good Czech pils.
There is just about enough of everything, it is fairly well-balanced and there is a nice carbonic/hop bite. My main gripe is that it was a little sticky towards the end and ventured into flavors that some pale lagers do but which I personally don't really love, but aside from that a tasty beer. Not too much of any one thing.
I would probably have it again, but I would have to say I prefer other pilsners.

Was really impressed by Budwar which I had a few days ago...

Good appearance and head level for a lager

Strong hoppy aroma, very impressive, a bit flowery like Budwar though with a bit more of a fruity and citrus kick.

For a lager, flavour is pretty good, though not as good as Budwar I don't think. Refreshing and flowery hops with sweet malt. Needs a bit more strength and hops to be great, though would consider buying again.

Feel is a bit thin and watery, prefer a bit more body or creaminess
