3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright gold color. White head. Strong spicy aroma very distinct. I don't find it as bitter as some seem too. A nice change from average pils but not as good as I hoped for.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 This pours a pure gold color with a medium white head. The lacing is average. The nose is clean and a bit hoppy and sweet. The bitterness comes first with a light acidicity. There’s mostly malts, banana sweetness, and peppery bitterness. This is a very clean, nice changeup.

Light bitter pilsner. Very Mild. You can easily get very hammered sitting in Praha on this beer ;D

Formula 409. How is it that I've had some beers SO many times and never rated them? I would feel much worse for not really commenting so much on the beer itself (which I like) but I have looked in the past at all the ratings by the BIG PEOPLE that have NO comments at all. Formula 409

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2004 Bottle
Very fresh hoppy aroma. Quite big white head. Appearance very clear, golden. Bitterness which has some bite - but not too heavily plus grass flavour which stays long enough to make drinking enjoyable. (9/3/8/4/15 3.9)
Re-rate: bottled (BB 01/2005)
Dark golden color with steady white head, lace. Strong hoppy aroma - like it should be. Hops dominate mouthfeel, some sugary notes too. Bitter hoppy aftertaste. Classic benchmark of the style. (7/3/7/5/15 3.7)

The light appearance was not the most appealing, however, the nice sweet aroma and light flavor was enjoyable under many circumstances.

Lovely pilsener; easy to find. It starts with a swet taste-aroma and ends with a - no too much- bitter tasting. Everybody needs to have Pilsner Urquell in their fridge!
