Bottles in the US are alright, with a tasty hoppy bite, but pretty thin and lacking in fruit flavors. On tap (at least in Prague), it’s one of the better pilsners available, still having more bite than bubbly skunk like Gambrinus, but also fuller than the bottles.

Delicious pilsner, dark amber gold, good head, excellent green hop aroma, slightly flowery palate with excellent balance and finish. If it were cheaper, it would be my standard "have-in-the-fridge-at-all-times-beer". Maybe its sacrilege, but I still like the Emerson’s pilsner better...

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2005 A good definition of a pilsener for the taster. Bold, bitter, refreshing, good skunk. A quality, widely available pilsener beer product.

(bottle) Poured golden yellow with some lacing. Well balanced, but I remember liking it even more a few years ago.

After 1000+ beers tried, this is the first time I have ever had this beer. Kind of strange. Oh well. Surprisingly, this is not skunked. Peppery, spicy hoppy nose...spritzy. Slight sweet notes. Transparent golden color with a nice firm frothy white head. Slightly sweet to start, turning slightly malty in the middle. Finishes spiced and peppery with a hint of dryness and bitterness. Crisp beer.

Tasty, refreshing and delicous. Everything Budweiser wishes it could be... A nice break from the summer heat.

Bottle. Pours clear golden color with a whitish head. Strong hops aroma. Almost fizzy mouthfeel from carbonation. Well balanced and refreshing.

Great lawnmower beer. very clean and crisp in the way Budweiser could only dream of. I have had better, but this is very solid.

a boquet of wild grass and flowers. bitter pinches with a twist of malt. I just wish that more brands could get a pilsner going as good as this.

Nice floral hop nose with a kind of crisp grassy feel to it. Creamy white head on top of a golden body, pretty. Flavor starts out smooth and finishes bitter. Got hints of sweet citrus. Very easy drinking beer. Not bad at all.
