1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Skunky pilsner, medium blonde look. The green bottle is cool to look at it. Not great. But the Czechs aren't known for beer, good or bad. One of the 300 beers you need to try before you die.

Malts with some hoppy notes in aroma. Pours golden with white head. Taste is medium dry with malts and herbs. Low to medium bitterness at the finish. Overall ok.

Review: Bottle of Pilsner Urquell ABV: 4.4%
Coming in a nice green bottle and with classy looking labelling. There’s an attractive red seal stating that this is the “The Original Pilsner”, just so you dont get mixed up with all those cool Czech beers on the market. This one is the original, make no doubt about it!
On pour a light golden yellow colour shows and when it all settles nicely we get a good looking beer with a nice frothy white head that does stick around
This beer is alive, a good bit of carbonation, buzzing about. Some lacing as well. Definitely looks the part.............
The aroma was a real lovely beery smell, floral hops, malts and lager yeast, nice on the nose.........
Interesting taste, piercing taste throughout
Hoppy aftertaste which is a bit overbearing to be honest
Bit of caramel as well
Not what I was expecting at all. Has definite unique tastes and flavours, more like an ale than a soft lager...............Tasty, but I am not a fan, too skunky
Bit surprised as was expecting a better taste, since this beer has a reputation as a "top beer", dont know if this is down to the acquisition by SAB Miller, or maybe due to the green bottles, or perhaps this does not travel well, but I am sure the draft version would be better. I guess i might actually have to go and visit Plzen itself to sample the good stuff!

Tap at Swan Inn, Farnborough. Hazy champagne yeast aroma. Light amber. Fizzy. A tight frothy white head. Sweet, umami. Smooth. A tickle of carbonation, followed by a dry finish. Highly drinkable if not that interesting.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
De un dorado tan brillante y limpio que casi hay que ponerse gafas de sol.
Espuma poco consistente y pequeńísima burbuja.
Aroma muy lineal a cebada y alguna leve nota herbal. En boca está bien estructurada, con el lúpulo muy presente, dominándolo todo y otorgándole un delicado amargor.

330ml Bottle: Pours a crystal clear golden with a good white head that stays. Lacing. Aroma of caramel, toffee and hay. A nice crisp and clean finish with medium bitterness. Tastes of caramel with bready notes. Medium to low bodied with medium to high carbonation. My favourite commercial beer.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright dark straw color with moderate activity. Foamy white 3 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, offering a decent amount of lacing. Flavors of sweet grains, faint caramel and lemon, saaz and noble hops. Low perception of sweetness, but highly sharp with a pleasant bitterness. Slick and smooth medium to full body with prickly carbonation. Light and short finish, lingering grainy notes and some grassy noble hops. Overall good quality craft. Lightly flavored grainy feel, almost nonexistent smell, while the finish offers the most flavors with a nice herbal feel, balanced citrus, and a very faint skunky feel. Very fresh and accessible.
