Clear, pale gold appearance, average size white head, nice lacing. Fresh mown hay aroma fades quickly and turned corny as it warmed. Taste was clean, crisp, vegetal, a bit hoppy, with a light touch of sweet malt. Thin bodied mouthfeel, loads of carbonation. Just needs more depth and character

Light brown body with fast dissipating head. (maybe I kept it in the freezer too long). Smells a little malty but very weak smelling. Taste is quite thick malts and grains and some bitterness fights through, body has a creamy buttery texture. Dry on the mouth with a tingly carbonation, slightly gritty. Overall it's a nice filling pilsner with an emphasis on being a malty brew.

We go a loooong way. Perfect when you can't have a beer at home and you take a couple to your friend that doesn't drink beer or any alcohol, and you drink it with another friend. The first friend provides the food. Beware of the annoying sister!

Bought at a Supermarket in Moravia. From a 0,5 l bottle to a Pilsener glass.
-Usual Pilsener look. The foam fades away after a while, leaving a small head of foam.
-Bitter smell. In my opinión, the usual for the style. It is not bat but it is not something remarkable.
-The taste is of Pilsener but I would say with an extra bitter touch that I like.
-The feel is less smooth than other Pilseners. It is not bad but it is not great.

In my opinión it is not bad but the best Pilsener that I had. Regular for the great Czech beer level.

Initially pours a thick foam accompanied with a clear golden body. Lacing is low probably because the thick head recedes fairly quick. Mild tasting beer overall. Aromas are dominated by cereal and malt. The sweet malt overtones finished off by I would say an elevated bitterness that feels a little on the 'woody' side. But ultimately has a really nice smooth feel.

It pours a clear, deep golden body with lots of visible carbonation. Small white head with some lacing.

It has a buttery aroma of pale malts, citrus and hops with notes of fruit and honey.

The taste has pale malts, grassy hops and butter. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly creamy, with light bitterness, average carbonation and light sweetness. The aftertaste has a slight grassy bitterness to it.

Pleasantly mild and well balanced. A solid pilsner.

I think this subtle, classic Pilsner blows most of the trendy Belgians and other overpowering microbrews out of the water... but you really should let it sit for a while, as is the case with all good Pislners. The taste is pure grain -- you really get the barley and then a hint of malt, with just a kiss of hops at the end. Other reviewers have criticized it for not having the "punch" of other Pilsners, but for my money, it's the best of the big ones.

Cerveza de cuerpo ligero. En su aroma se puede percibir la malta, la levadura y un poco de cítrico. Al beberla se puede sentir el caramelo y nuevamente la sensación cítrica. Final dulce, seco con una pizca de amargor.

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.
