Michael Jackson, rest his soul, rated this a world-class pilsner. It’s the original pilsner for crying out loud and do I see ratings in the 2’s? Apologies for not being ’extreme’ enough or alcoholic enough but for the finest example of the style, look no further. I don’t care if they have gone from 5 strains of yeast to 2 or if they brew it in Poland and Russian now under SABMiller or if it’s not as malty as it was in nineteen aught four, this is Pilsner Urquell, the original pilsner, a class unto itself.

Bu en bouteille de 33cl, une de mes bičres de bases chéries. Une couleur dorée bien prononcée et une mousse qui tient bien selon la température de la bičre. Au nez elle sent surtout le malt mais en bouche explosion d’amertume elle est longue et parfaite en bouche, la bičre de soif par excellence !

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice amber beer with a small head.
The initial smell was what I would have called skunky, but it did not taste that way and after swirling the beer, that smell went away. Instead, it has a bready smell and a little bit of sulfur. Not the greatest smell but it was not overpowering.
The bready-ness continued into the taste. You can definitely taste the malt and there is a slight hoppy aftertaste.
The carbonation can be tasted and all of the taste is in the front of the mouth. A good beer and a decent first try at a Czech Pilsner.

despite being mass produced and only 4.4% I can’t fault it. One of the best beers available widely

Classica pils ceca da battaglia: luppolatura secca da manuale. Molto beverina. Senza nessuna pretesa, ma anche senza difetti evidenti. La si incontra sempre con piacere, specialmente standosene seduti in qualche baretto in piazza Venceslao.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Spicy grassy hops and corn cereal aromas. Clear copper-gold, effervescent, with a somewhat lasting white head. Dry, well balanced with earthy hops up front followed by a cushion of cereal flavor, and a touch of butter. Sharp, crisp, light bodied, well carbonated, and finishes with slight shortbread and grass.

Una birra onesta, senza troppe pretese e con una beva facile. Non un mostro di aromi e di essenza, non un mostro alla bocca, eppure una splendida frizzantezza ed un retrogusto secco e ripulente che piace.
