3.18/5  rDev -3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours a clear dar yellow with a nice crown of foam.

Smell is bready and slightly sweet with some floral notes and a hint of corn.

Taste is bready and malty with hints of buttery popcorn, with a light floral bitterness.

Mouthfeel is thin to medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a decent, but unspectacular pilsner.

This is a smooth and enjoyable Czech pilsner. The malt and breadiness comes through across more than in some similar beers which emphasize sweetness. While the beer is hardly amazing, it's just interesting enough to complement its drinkability with nuance.

It's fine.

This "Kutna Hora" lager is no longer made by the small brewery in Kutna Hora but, following the purchase and closure of the Dacicky brewery by Heineken, instead by Heineken affiliate Breznak.

Widely available in the area, I enjoyed my Dačicky 12 svêtly ležák (Kutná Hora lager) in a Dacicky mug in the Dacicky pub in Kutna Hora.

A - golden; white; crystal cleear

Aroma: slightly yeasty light toasted malts; baked bread; slightly fruity.

M - medium body and carbonation; crisp

T - rather mild balanced mix of malt and hops turns moderately bitter by the finish. Slightly tart.

O - good and slightly distinctive beer with a strong dose of hops in the finish.

Appearance: Dačický Světlý Ležák pours a light yellow colour along with a white crown of decent height (1½") with relatively big bubbles.

Smell: Primarily burnt malt and toffee.

Taste: First and foremost a powerful delivery of a bitterness, a syrupy sweetness. The bitterness follows through from the alpha to the omega of this beer and in combination with it's high wort-content it gets a distinctively bread-like character.

Mouthfeel: Rather full, for a beer of this particular style, the carbonation is mild but present.

Drinkability: A obvious bitterness, but not overwhelmingly so. Finally, for a beer this style (Czech Pilsner of the "light" character) it's very a "dark" in a lot of it's categories - pleasantly surprising!

The bottled variant got an alcoholic content of 4.1% abv.

The colour is pale gold, the off white head is thick, uneven and two fingers high.

The smell is clean, malty and a bit bitter.

The taste got clan notes of neutral malts; it is somewhat sweet and bitter. The aftertaste is long, malty with some notes of yeast and meat stock.

The carbonation is fresh, but it is a bit short with medium-sized bubbles.

Jost another OK Czech pils...

Tasted this beer on tap at a historical pub in Kutna Hora on 29/06/05. According to the waitress it's their "yeasted", i.e. unfiltered, beer.

It pours a slightly cloudy, pale amber hue, with a rocky white head settling to a very thin layer of tiny bubbles... quite low in carbonation compared with other pilsners tasted. It smells of slightly green-apple aroma, and light yeasty note--overall softly fruity hops combine with very pleasantly maltiness on the nose. The taste is a bit too thin for the aroma, or perhaps because it was served a bit too cold--it's lightly malty against a refreshing but soft mouthfeel of Zatec hops throughout. Typical of Czech světlý ležák, or pale lager, I would say, but the body and flavour are both lighter than expected of the unfiltered version at such strength (6%abv, according to the waitress). Highly quaffable beer this is, but I've bumped into a lot of more complex and enjoyable unfiltered pilsners on tap during my visit.
