Budweiser Budvar Original
85Less hoppy and in your face than many Czech beers but classy and refined.
75A very drinkable but not especially exciting premium lager.
Gambrinus Se Snizenym Obsahem Cukru
73A low-sugar beer for special diets that certainly misses the full malty character of a normal beer.
Gambrinus Svetle Pivo
75It's not a bad session lager but it just lacks a little refinement.
Klasik Svetle Pivo
63A very light lager with notable hop character but little else to offer.
Kozel 11 Medium
68Plenty of hop character, but too dry. Needs a fuller malt base.
78A very good, nicely balanced beer that – if there is a down side – unfortunately tastes just a bit tired. Would love to try a fresher sample (even better if unpasteurised).
75An interesting alternative to the sweeter, more full-bodied pilsners but the lack of body makes it a little
73It may lack depth and character, but this is still a pleasant enough drink.
83An art treasure that needs a little restoration. Still a very fine beer with remarkable body for its strength, but not as classy as it used to be.
Primus Svetle Pivo
63Plenty of taste but unfortunately not much class.
70An adequate light lager with plenty of flavour. Could do with a bit more zing.
A flavoursome premium lager perhaps over-dependent on an oily hoppiness.
Regent Bohemia Regent
78An enjoyable premium lager, medium bodied and well balanced with fine, tangy, herbal flavours.
70Somewhat disappointing, lacking smoothness and ending rather feebly for a beer of this ABV.
Vielkopopovieky Kozel Svetly
78A decent, quaffing lager with good hop character. Some might describe it as delicate; others may suggest it lacks flavour. I side with the first view.
80A well-made, classy beer, with a very unusual, subtle fruit character.
