Fresh, hoppy aroma as expected. Poured a mid gold colour, with a nice white head that faded just a little. Great balance, with it difficult to decide if it is dominated by the hops of the malt. Hard to top in this style.

Pretty good beer with a decent balance of flavor. Light clear and refreshing with a good amount of foamy white head. Very good for the style.

Bitter, but also aromatic. Perfect for long sessions.

This is great pilsner! Crisp, clean flavor that went down smooth and left no bitter aftertastes like some do. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2004 Excellent pilsener! Pours a beautiful gold with a white head. Aroma is of light malt, Saaz hops. Taste is refreshing, clean and sweet with a nice malt and hop balance. Mouthfeel is nice and full- the flavor just dances all over your tongue. Much better than most pilseners. Highly recommended, especially on a hot day. My bottle wasn't skunky at all.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Orange yellow with a medium head. Aromas of herbs and spices with a equally herbal, spicy and bitter taste. I can understand why this is THE standard for pilsners.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Not much of a head and what head there is dies rather quickly. Slight lacing. A very nice clear golden color. Medium hoppy floral aroma. Not a very strong tasting beer but a good blend of hop and malt flavors. Medium carbonation with a smooth mouthfeel. Slight hoppy aftertaste. A very good pilsner.

The mother of pilseners! Clear dark yellow body with a fine head that dies quite fast. Good hoppy aroma and flavor. But like most other pilseners I find it quite uninteresting and bland. It's not that I don't like pilseners, on a hot summer day they are perfect, I just guess that after discovering the great world of beers I find them quite tasteless and boring. Pilsner Urquell is one of the better ones on the market and deserves an extra point for beeing the mother.....!!!

One of the best beers I've ever had. The price of a case is a bit pricy around $30, but is definately worth it. Very thick taste, yet with a golden flavor.
