3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2005 My friend Ron calls the best beer ever made. I think he’s listened to too many radio commercials. Certainly it’s a fine pils, but the not the best. Good crisp drink, with a light gold color, thin white head, and tight carbonation. Mild malty, doughy aroma. Nice malt & hop balance, but not a very strong flavor. Clean finish. It’s just "okay," Ron.

This one caught me somewhat off guard, as I typically am not a pilsner/lager fan. However, on tap at least, this was very tasty and interesting. Smelled and tasted of breads and yeasts, with some pepper in the mix and a buttery taste. Nice, clean tasting finish. A good one.

Second time purchasing this. I always see it at the local bodegas so i picked it up again to rate it. Dank smelling aroma. Head is very small and same with the oxygen bubbles. I noticed a sweetness along side being biter but none the less very solid. This pilsner has a unique style of its own and should remain an example.

I was very impressed immediately with the complex and pleasant aroma and the orange/ deep golden appearance of this pilsner. Very little white head and no lacing. Nicely bitter and an enjoyable aftertaste. My first won’t be my last.

Lives up to its reputation. A great pilsner from start to finish. Although the green bottle, I have never had a skunked Pilsner. Whether tap or bottle, it is surely to please the palate with the balance of malt and hops. And is nice on a hot summer day.

The first is still good. Light golden colour, with no real head. Crisp clean finish. Tastes like what other beers wish they were.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2005 My old review wasn’t that informative, so I decided to update it. I still stand by my rating of the beer. 0.5l green bottle. It’s not a fresh sample, but it sure wasn’t skunky. Poured a deep golden colour, with a big fluffy white head that went completely away rather fast. I didn’t notice much lacing. The nose was faint (the beer was cold, so it figures), but it was malty, honeyish. The taste was nice, with a nice hoppy foreground and a subtle and pleasant malty and lemoney background. Good hoppy aftertaste. Flawless, but far from flashy.
The source of all pilseners is definitely an above average pilsener, with a pleasant and balanced taste. And it’s pretty refreshing too.

I don’t often buy Pilsners, but tried this upon recommendation of a friend. Have to say I was very impressed. For some reason or another, this beer reminded me of the ubiquitous St. Pauli Girl, only much better. A great, refreshing session beer that I’ll be buying again.

12oz bottle: Believe it or not, I bought this beer because I saw a review on tv (thirsty traveller for those that know the show). A very balanced flavor, with a bit of hops for an aftertaste. All in all, a very good beer. I will definately be buying this one again.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2007 Bottled (330 ml green bottle). I always buy this beer packaged in cardboard boxes and never came across one that was lightstruck. Deep gold colour with moderate head that disapears quickly. Malt and floral hay aroma. Well balanced flavour of sweet malt and Saaz hop bitterness. Nice balanced bitter sweet hoppy finish. Refreshing. Very good, classic bohemian pilsner. This is my daily "bread" and I am never be tired of it.
