Purchased at the LCBO for just under $3.00 for a 500ml can. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a good white head that is gone in less than 1min. Dark gold and clear.

S- Fair amount of hops here. Nice malt backbone. Other than that that's all yolks.

T- Pretty good malty backbone. Fairing good wet hopping.

M- A touch dry but all the components are there.

O- Pretty good out of the blue beer. Will not turn it down versus other beers out there as there are worse.

Food Pairing

This nice little beer went well with....... slightly seasoned dry roasted peanuts.

Enjoy

Format: a solid 500mL brown embossed bottle with a decent macro label.

Appearance: pours out a light golden amber with moderate visible carbonation. A finger of head lasts for a time.

Aroma: biscuit malts with light grains and a touch of grass hops. Not much to it.

Taste: more grains here than biscuit malts, but still the grass hops. Okay.

Aftertaste: the aroma was decent, but the taste comes across more like a lager than a pilsner.

Mouth feel: light in feel with a moderate carbonation.

Overall: not a bad pilsner but not my favourite. An easy-drinking beer but nothing really special. Decent price for AU$62 for a case of 20 x 500mL.

One of best Czech beers and pilsner in general. Gold, clear yellow, snow white head medium lasting. Sparkling and refreshing. Not a bit sweetness and bitter just as it should be. Tasty, hops, hint of fruits. + balanced, refreshing, nor too strong, nor too weak. Always have one in fridge. Beer to return in any time. Kozel and steak = winning combination. - can't see any.
