3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2004 Bottle
Very fresh hoppy aroma. Quite big white head. Appearance very clear, golden. Bitterness which has some bite - but not too heavily plus grass flavour which stays long enough to make drinking enjoyable. (9/3/8/4/15 3.9)
Re-rate: bottled (BB 01/2005)
Dark golden color with steady white head, lace. Strong hoppy aroma - like it should be. Hops dominate mouthfeel, some sugary notes too. Bitter hoppy aftertaste. Classic benchmark of the style. (7/3/7/5/15 3.7)

The light appearance was not the most appealing, however, the nice sweet aroma and light flavor was enjoyable under many circumstances.

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.

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.

As largers go this is a good one. Nice zesty aroma with a nice malt and hop balance. Better than most.

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.
