This is the true "skunky" beer. Somewhat simi9lar to Heine, Becks, and the others. Not spectacular yet not shitty either. The 6 pack price is a bit hefty, try to find stores that sell these individually.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2003 I can't believe I forgot to rate this one. Golden color with a nice head. Grassy, hoppy aroma. A very hoppy taste that I'm not a fan of. I prefer a weaker flavored pilsner, like St. Pauli Girl. Not my favorite kind of hops.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Overall, a wonderful brew. Strong golden color with a well-balanced hop-malt combination. Although, I think Czechvar edges it out just a little.

Supposedly, this Czech beer is the world's oldest pilsner. I didn't like it at all. Skunky taste. Highly overrated, if you ask me.

This is what a beer should be, great aroma, flavor packed, slightly bitter after taste. Those Czech's know how to do it

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2007 Oh lunch beer, how I love thee. Draught served in pint glass. Large frothy white head diminishes slowly and leaves very nice lacing. Average looking (density) body is mildly carbonated and a medium yellow in color. Nose is of light malt (light bread, grain), moderate hops (perfume, herbs). Taste shifts from sweet to spicy bitter with a long finish. Body is medium density and very creamy. Carbonation is soft. Everything is as it should be with this brew; peppery hops, creamy mouthfeel, no harshness. A great thirst quencher but not terribly interesting in the aroma / flavor departments.
Rerate, 7-9-07. 50cl can, Duvel tulip. Flavour and aroma are far less than I remember, and the mouthfeel is quite watery. Distinct coppery aroma/flavour. Meh, mediocre.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale gold yellow color, a little clearer and less bubbly than czechvar. Can pour a large grassy/straw smelling/tasting head if too warm.
Iniital taste is saaz hops, but has some sour notes to it I dont care for. Some malt character towards the finish, but this beer is too watery, and does not warm gracefully. Still, it has a crisp enough body while cold and has some straw/floral notes to some extent.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rich gold color with a thick long lasting head. Spicy hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium bodied, dryish and tangy, with distinct malt and hop flavors that intertwine wonderfully. The finish is smooth and slightly bitter, and this was one fine glass of beer. Like a lot of people, I have been frustrated by the inconsistency of this renowned brew, but the skunk is out of town this time. 12 bottles packed in a cardboard container, so being exposed to light was not an issue here.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color is golden yellow with some carbination and the head sits comfortably at three fingers high with a small bubbly and bumpy, foamy head. Smells is kind a blah, nothing much but some floral hop aroma thats very faint. Taste is equally a nice soft malt with a floral hop thats somewhat spicy and bitter dry. Feels like most pilsners, a bit soft, clean, dry, and smooth and quite a good quencher.
