Buona pilsner industriale. Bionda con schiuma bianca. Al naso un leggero sentore di malto. In bocca molto dissetante ma priva di sostanza. Frizzantezza giusta e corpo leggero. Bilanciata lievemente verso l’amaro. Forse questa sia una delle migliori lager pasteurizzate da supermercato. Comunque dopo assaggiare pilsner artigianali crude, questi prodotti non hanno piů senso nei nostri giorni. Quindi non la posso consigliare anche se č una birra con tanta storia.

Transparent with a yellow hue, frothy white head. Aroma of yeast and almost reminiscent of rising bread. Taste holds hints of citrus and floral notes. Almost a taste of butter in the taste as well.

Bottle to glass.....pure gold in color, not much to speak about head-wise, rapidly dissipating. As for aroma, not much there, an open package of white bread, and very faint caramel. The highlight is the taste. Delicious and actually has some body. Extremely easy to drink and well-balanced with a pleasant bitter finish. And a finish that it memorable and stays with you. I would say it really depends on your perspective, it is probably too bitter for the average American light pale lager drinker. Heieneken tastes really sweet compared to this. But no one can tell me this isn’t easy to drink.

I’ve never rated Pilsner Urquell until now. Okay, well here goes.
Into a pilsener glass, there’s a decent looking hazy yet somewhat pale and still leaving a decent looking transparency running about the body. The head is about a finger’s worth with a decent one finger’s worth if anything. The lacing tries to cling but slides for the most part.
The aroma, well, it smells like a Euro Pale Lager, hmmmm....sigh, yeah, well, since I’m an American, well, I’m sure Europeans will look down on me for talking about its slight skunkiness (well, if anything, please consider that I’ve lived in North America my whole life).
The taste, well once again, its bitter for the sake of being bitter but not showing any enlightening qualities of actually showing hoppy bitterness.
On the palate, this one sat about a pretty light on the body and showing a fairly decent sessionable quality running all over the tongue.
Overall, for the most part, sure, I guess this is somewhat of a decent Euro Pale Lager, for me, I’m not really into this (yeah, well, sure consider me the typical American who likes too much hops, oh well, sue me). Sigh, I’m still here, what about you?

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Transfer from BA review on 6-18-12 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a golden color with a big white head. The head faded fast to give a lighter amount of lacing.
Smell – The smell is of biscuit notes as well as floral/grassy and a light skunky aroma.
Taste – The taste starts out crisp and malty. There are hints of barley malt and some corn up front. These remain throughout the flavor, but other tastes come and go throughout. In the middle of the taste there is a lighter sugary and caramel sweetness. This fades however at the end where some floral and grassy flavors come to the taste and leave a crisp slightly bitter flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- A lighter body with a higher level of carbonation. Very good for the lightness of the beer.
Overall – A good beer on a nice warm day (as how I enjoyed it today). While not huge on favor or aroma, it is very easy drinking and refreshing.

As far as pilsners go, this one is pretty fantastic. Pours crisp gold and clear with a full white fluffed head. Nose is lightly bready and yeasty with clean malt notes. Flavor is light citrus of hops and malty smoothness. It’s really decent and easy drinking

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance crystal clear light golden, with a frothy white foam cap. Aroma is spicy saaz hop and rich pilsner malt. Hint of butter. Taste is rich, bready malt with a slight buttery quality and a soft, rounded hop bite that is stronger than it feels. Mouthfeel is medium with a slight creaminess. Finishes dry with a lingering spicy bitterness.

Pours golden yellow from the can and forms a pretty thick fluffy head that quickly reduces to an uneven thin foam. Initial sweetness is followed by a short-lasting bitter aftertaste. Not much in terms of taste and aroma beyond some bitter citrus zests.

A great Czech pils. According to me, you can’t get more flavor out of a bottom-fermented beer than this.
