This is NOT a czhech pilsner!Calling it so is an insult to great tradition of czech pilsner brews.
No Saaz hops, no decoction involved, almost non existent body...What else to say?
Had it from a 50cL green bottle, that was only one week old.Skunk and very little spice in nose.I guess Styrian, a hop that is crossbrd of Foggel an wild hops south of Alps.Get that noble name of Golding out of this mess....
Taste is 90% Styrian and carbonation.Very hard to pick any malts.Some sweetnes is there.
Very hard on stomach and no joy in drinking it.Finish is Styrian, medium lasting.No balance at all in this beer.They must be hiding something.
My conclusion after 5 sampling :
Stay away from it!

This is the second or third Slovenian beer that I'm having now in Croatia and I'm surprised to find how much Slovenian lagers are similar to the American Adjuncts. Of course clarity and purity perhaps can't be compared with the A&B's but that smooth, light taste is definitely alike. No bad overtone, no corn, no sickening yeast like the Euro Pale Lagers - this is definitely something better. Hardcore lager lovers would stone me for this but when it comes to lager I would choose something like this. I would rate it up to a good B+ lager, wonder if it would taste this good the next time if I had it again.

Pours a typical golden pilsner color, but head quickly dissipates and leaves no lacing. No detectable aroma. Taste started out sweet, but overall bland and watery. Dissappointing in general.
