Nice golden body with a diminishing bubbly head. Fresh hoppy nose with some floral and herbal notes. Mouthfeel is fairly carbonated and taste is hoppy with some discreet metallic hints. Decent bitter final. The real Budweiser is a very good pils but remains a step under the Pilsner Urquell.

Pours an apple juice like colour with a quickly disappearing white head. Nice straw aroma. This made a great refrsher after rugby practice. Great mouthfeel with good amount of carbonation nice hop bite on the end from the hops. A great thirst quencher.

The aroma reminded me of marijuana or maybe a skunk. There was a lot of active, tiny carbonation. The body was light-colored with a thin white head. The flavor comes on good and strong. The only drawback is a funky aftertaste.

this is pretty much the definition of a german pilsnener. smells a little skunky, but quiet notes of hops and bread. tastes just like a bohemian pilsener ought to: simple malt profile with some european hops, and a clean crisp finish. very unnoticeable alcohol. very refreshing.

In the green bottle. Tastes fine, but doesn’t really blow you away. Kind of a typical pilsener. I dunno, I bet this tastes way better on tap in the Czech Republic.

pours a copperish colour with a white head. a good strong aroma of saaz hops. the taste had some metalic undertones as well as the hops, good dry finish easy to drink.

Had it out of a bottle so I canr realy rate the appearance. Decent lightly hopped aroma. Flavor is moderatly maly with a light floral presence. Nothing special, but quite nice for a pilsner, and well worth the 12 crown a bottle.

Dark golden color with lots of bubbles. Large white, rocky head that lasts for several minutes. Mild fruit aroma with malt and hops. Flavors are sweet and bitter, with corn and sugar. Heavy palate for a pils. Everything a pilsner should be.

My first impression with pilsners is to brace myself for what will most likely be watered down beer with that unmistakable rotting barley flavor if anything at all, but this proved to be a fresh, crisp tasty pilsner. It’s as if all of the crappy beer commercials you see are advertizing this beer but selling their urinal water. Good body, medium palate, and just enjoyable.
