From a bottle. This is the czech taste of pilsner origin that I had hoped Pilsner Urquell would provide but failed. Crisp, clear and full of character. Very height of lager expression.

Quite colourful for a dry pale lager. A bit of caramel and a slight peachy fuitiness. Dry and slightly hoppy. Thin body but that’s the style.

Coloração dourada bem intensa, aroma herbáceo e com leve malte, sabor maltado e com amargor suave, que não agride e puxa um próximo gole.

I really thought that this beer could deliver much better, and taste like other Czechs like Staropramen and Starobrno. Instead it’s highly mediocre. Very musty. It tastes decent anyway but a bit of a dissapointment for me.

The aroma is not it’s best point. Classic pale Lager with a bit of caramel and a bitter taste.

Can. Surprisingly I rather enjoyed this brew. Taste of caramel, hay, and spices. Has a heavier body than most and a nice carbonation. The aftertaste finishes with a kind of spiciness on the tongue, but a refreshing kind. I would buy this again.

Pils tchèque de 5 % abv, brassée selon de Reinheitsgebod allemand... Couleur doré moyen brillant. Clarté nette. Bulles fines mais très peu nombreuses. Mousse blanche qui tombe vite. Arômes de citronelle, pneu de voiture, pelure de pomme de terre, corde de chanvre. 1ère bouche liquide sur la pils typique : du malt blanc et du houblon amer piquant. 2ème sur un peu de blé, girofle, citronelle. 3ème assez orientée sur l’ammoniaque. La longueur est plus sur un ensemble malt/houblon, qui n’est pas désagréable mais sans aucune noblesse. De la grande banalité. L’alcool n’aide rien. La finale est assez fade. CONCLUSION : de la pils au sens propre, c’est-à-dire pas grand chose... On disait dans les campagnes : de la pils de chat … On peut dire ici : de la pils de czech ...
