4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at En Öl- & Whiskymässa, Gothenburg, April, 2015. Three 25 litres kegs were brought along from the brewery, this was sampled from the first one opened. Clear deeep golden, soft, thick white four finger foam dissipating slowly leaving lots of lacings. Amazingly present aroma, with a wall of grass, floral, bready, slightly buttery feel. Taste is medium bitter, superb balance with bready, malty hints along with floral and grassy notes, velvet mouthfeel, slight bitterness in the finish. I may be a bit over exaggerated here, but still, this IS brutally tasty with the most delightful mouthfeel and high drinkability.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Little hazy golden body, medium white head. Aroma of malts and yeast, low intensity. Taste of malts, aftertaste is bitter, hoppy. Little sweet, medium bitterness. An average body and carbonation.
What kind of madness is around here? This is really an average pilsener, I can’t understand this 4,x ratings. Almost every Czech microbrewery beer (and even many of regional commercial) is few steps above this one. This is simple “not bad” category. It looks like people are ratings this trademark, old legend, not the beer (I believe any other with the same taste, aroma, etc. will be around 3).

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the Pivovarská šenkovna, Ústí n. L. (easter edition 2015). Little cloudy, golden colored beer. Aroma of malt, bread, some sweet fruity or flowery tones. Medium bodied, malty flavor, bready, moderately hopped.
Not bad, still it is average beer. Definitely not the best Czech pilsener.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Has a slight buttery popcorn diacetyl character in the nose. But the flavors are crackery malts with a slightly grassy hoppiness imparting medium bitterness for style; not as tame as more generic pils, less exotic than the Italian exemplars of style. Quite easy to drink and tasty to boot. Meets my expectations and I had to travel all the way to a World of Beer to try it rather than going back to my Grandmother’s homeland.

Pretty much as boring as the regular urquell, that means it works when in emergency situations, but not otherwise.

Es nuestra pilsner favorita. On tap en OMA bistró. Dorada con una abundante corona blanca. Notas de caramelo, ligera, chispeante y refrescante. Carbonatación media y amargor ligero. La pilsner ideal.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Softly hazed and golden, with a head of tightly packed white. Corn, biscuits, honey and crackers on the malt side of the nose -- a lot of malty complexity. The hops are soft here, lending an herbal, minty twang to the proceedings. Compared to the standard draft and bottled versions, it’s got a lot more malt character -- again the rich melanoidins of crackers and honey. The barley is balanced perfectly by tea-like hops. A lot of complexity in this little old Pilsner.
