A good pilsner. I would get it again if I was looking for a lighter beer.

Very impressive pilsner, and what is even more impressive is that I found it in one of the biggest shithole of bars in the world. Tried it just to see what the supposed ’first pilsner ever’ was like and was very pleased. The hype behind it was probably the best quality of the beer, but the aroma and taste were nothing to complain about one bit.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2006 Re-rate 8/29/06: Clear pale yellow orange with a thin white head, aroma contains flowers, grass and some citrus, medium bodied with nice carbonation, starts and lightly bitter. Re-rate 3/29/02: Crisp and refreshing. Getting a new, unopened 12-pack is the way to go with this beer. Be wary of a bottle sitting under the lights. First rating: It is a quality pilsner, however that in itself is a big problem for a stout/barleywine drinker like me.

Considering this was the original pils, it’s a good thing brewers did not hew too close to the original. The aroma is overwhelming and it doesn’t have a good aftertaste.

One of the best pilseners in the world, but quite expensive

A decient pilsner. The green bottle usually cries out a warning to me, but the light didn’t effect the flavor from what I could tell. It was what was to be expected. A fully body, with a rich head, in a lovely hue of gold. Everything you’d expect from a Pilsner. It doesn’t go down as smooth as I’d like, but still a fine beer.

I actually would rather rate this in Prague when I am paying 50 cents for half a liter instead of the imported price, but I’ll manage. This is a great pilsner with a good body and taste. It also is a great chaser for absynthe.

None to bad a choice if you’re looking for a cheaper Pilsner. I prefer this to any of the mass-marketed German Pilsners out there. I’m told you can buy this beer for 35cents in Prague. See you in Prague.

BARF!!! I was forced to drink this garbage to become a member of the ’suds club’ at the local pub, I haven’t decided if it was worth it.

Malty and hoppy aroma and taste with some hay. It starts with some malty, almost buttery sweetness on the tongue, immediately followed by a hoppy, but soft bitterness. Long hopbitter finish. Good pilsener, but doesn’t live up completely to its reputation.
