3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very light golden color. Extremely clear. Lots of tiny bubbles dancing their way to the top. Solid bright white head. Pleasant hop smell pronounced but not overpowering - just right for the style. On entry, again very dry and somewhat thin and crisp. Nice hop finish running dry rather floral - appropriate for the style. This is a refreshing, drinkable beer. I prefer bottle conditioned ales,but this is among the very best regardless of style. This is what Light American Lagers should taste like.

This is how all Pilsners should taste and act. It pours out beautifully and has an increadable aroma. The combination of hops and malt are exceptional to the nose. It has tremendous mouth feel as it gets past the lips and leaves a flavour that lets you know it is a true pilsner. I often think I am in the Chech republick when I drink it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. Green bomber bottle. No freshness date that I can see. Pours out a bright sunshine yellow color. Decent, but short lived head. Faded to a slight island of thin foam in the middle of the glass. Very effervescent, almost champagne like. Aromas of fresh malts, fresh mown hay, and noble hops. Crisp, refreshing, easy to drink. Kind of thin on the palate, but it's supposed to be. Very well balanced, finishes bright, clean, and crisp. A really good beer in my book.

looks good, however most bottles tend to be skunky, so i always consider buying it a risk. Although, im still very curious how it tastes on tap.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lucky me, I landed a fresh bottle for this rating. Aroma is nice, the faintest skunk, but appropriate for the style, mostly hops on the nose. Poured with a nice white head, which has remained slight but present throughout. Beautiful lacing on the glass, as even a bad bottle of Pilsner Urquell will do. Good palate, very good taste, balanced but a nice spring garden burst of hops that lingers long after swallowing. I had this once as the first pour from a new keg at a new restaurant. It was so fresh as to nearly bring a tear to my eye. This is a good bottle, but it just can't stand up to a fresh draught. I should note that I have had some god-awful bad bottles in the past as well.

A true classic. Massive Saaz hop nose, beautiful round malt palate, 40 IBU's. Thirst quenching and satisfying. When it is fresh (very important in this beer's case)it is my ideal pale lager.

Clean, Crisp and clear. Litle or no complexity - simple to figure out but difficult to duplicate.

The bartender at a resort in Scottsdale recommended this a few months ago so I tried it. It was draft and was extremely good. I bought a 6-pack of bottles a little later, and it didn't even seem like the same beer, tasted like all the other European green bottled skunks. Very disappointing, but I have fond memories of the draft.
