1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
The colour of this beer was wonderful. A bright gold. Oddly enough, this beer smelled like furniture polish and it didn’t taste much better. :(

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2003 I just don't like pilsner's, but this is probably as good as they come. Very hoppy in both taste and aroma, although I wasn't that thrilled with the aroma. Beautiful light golden color. I'm a dark beer man, so I'm going to stay away from these in the future, but if pilsner's are your thing this is probably the best way to go.

This has a ’skunky’ aftertaste like many of the green bottle German Beers. The fresher the better as this one seems to get skunkier with any aging.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2005 Bottle. Orangy gold, thin white head and moderate condition. Gentle grassy hoppiness and low malt in the nose, Soft in the mouth with and initial sweet chalky graininess nicely balanced out by a solid flowery hop note. Lingering dry hoppy bitterness in the finish that has some underlying honey teasing the tongue.

Because of its high reputation, I have tried this several times and have always been disappointed. Always seems skunked in Aus. (Green Bottles?) Also is a bit light at only 4.4%. Would like to try on tap though.

My thing is darks, stouts, and porters. But, every once in a while I like to try a few Pilseners. As far as Pils go, this is one of my favorites. Crisp and flavorful. I have tried it cold and also at around 45 deg or so. I think I like it better at the warmer temp. A friend tells me that if you ever get to Europe, try to get to the Czech Republic and visit the town of Pilsen. It’s where it all started for Pilsner beer and you can tour the factory and taste a fresh batch.

Has a lot of rich malt flavor for a light colored Pilsner. They are best ice cold.

My first go at it was the Chech! Damn! What a nice surprise! And guess what the beer even tastes great as an import to the USA, which is a shock! Most beers brought over loose something! This one is a classic! Add it to your pilsner list!
