4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours golden yellow with a white slightly creamy head.
Aromas of corn sugar and hops. Initial sip tasted a strong flavour of corn syrup. Mouthfeel was slightly creamy. Hoppy middle with a some what bitter finish. All along with the flavour of pure corn syrup.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Yes its better over in Czechia, but I try my luck whenever 12 packs go on sale here. Deep golden color, noble hop aroma. Not that bitter but w/ solid malt flavour.

This is a very crisp beer. Very dry, very clean. Does have a nice grassy aroma to it. This is a classic pils.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Appearance: bright golden, small head, but lots and lots of carbonation running up the glass.
smell: wheaty and very skunky. Green bottle, so there might be the answer... but this specific sample is extremely skunky.
taste: grass, pepper, a slight skunk... biggest taste that I pull out is the grass. It's very strong.
mouthfeel: very nice; good carbonation.
Not a fan of this brew- there's much better out there.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I'm not the biggest fan of pilseners. This is a decent one. Short white slow fading head. Good ammount of carbonation throughout. Just this side of skunky apple aroma. Hoppy with some roastinesss. A bit of malt. Ricey, soil, apple and pear some honey. Round and clean.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2006 When in Omaha, drop into the Bohemian Cafe and drink this on tap out of large heavy ceramic mugs made by Frankoma. Then enjoy some liver dumpling soup. I guess my point is that the classics are going to always be classic and stand the test of time. Please, make sure that you get a light-protected version of this (such as on tap). You beeraphernalia collectors can also buy the Frankoma Bohemian Cafe mugs as a souvenir.
