One of the more well known Czech absinths. The Staroplzcenecky (try writing that really fast) come in red and green variaties. Pretty much only with the color differentiating the two.

Absinthe reviews

With a color clearly artificial, and with a smell of pure alcohol and chemicals, there's not much to expect. So, let's not. I could just leave it at that, but I can't help but wondering how it is actually possible that there are people saying this would be a good absinthe?

Now, of course it isn't absinthe, but absinth - and it isn't any good at all. Undrinkable, if not as bitter as the Prazsky, still way too bitter. Of course with no anise or anything else.

There's one word for this. NO.
