The standard pilsner color on the pour a golden yellow or straw if you prefer the head a bright white, the size modest, with a decent coating of lace. Malt dominated nose, crisp and fresh, the start sweet and malt laden with a skeletal top. Finish is adequately carbonated, the hops apropos to the style, dry and lingering aftertaste, just a run of the mill pils/lager.

Light golden color with a deccent head that lasted longer than I thought it would. Light pale malt sweetness, slight spicy hop flavor and good bitter finish. I could have used a brighter crisper hop bitterness to make it better fit the style. The smell was yeasty and could used some hop aroma. All in all not bad, worth checking into if you are into the lagers.

Poured out of its 500mL can a medium gold colour, with a decent head, which only leaves a thin lace for a legacy. A Slovakian pilsner reminiscent of its Czech cousins, it holds its own very well. Sweet malt and faint citrus on the nose, it is not as complex as Czechvar. The flavour is smooth, very impressive balance between malt and hops, with a light hop finish. Slight caramel aftertaste. I could spend an afternoon drinking this, easily. The lack of complexity in flavour is absolutely made up for in its drinkability, I'm ready to go out and buy more. Very smooth mouthfeel, I could drink this one all day.
