2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Light-carbonation golden beer with a small white head leaving lacings. Quite weak aroma with flowery hops overpowering the malts. Clean, malty and hoppy flavor, with a lovely bitter finish. A bit thin body, but ok. (060411)

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2005 Dark golden color with a nice head. This is a really good beer, but im not surprised since it is czech. It has a fresh and clean taste with a nice bitter finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2012 Bottle. Golden color and very lively carbonation. Medium head with medium duration. Aroma is dominated by hops and maybe a little fruit. Taste is mostly hops and bit too bitter for my taste. Rerated @ fonefan tasting. Medium head with medium duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are malt, hops and notes of butter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2012 Golden see through with white head. Watery texture. Aroma of hops and malts. lively carbonation. Finish has a sour bitter bite from hops. My respects to Plzen, but this is mediocre. Rerating Aug. 09. Lots of grain and grassy hops. Dry and crisp. Simple , tasty and well balanced Bohemian pils.From 2,9 to 3,2.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the Rose and Thistle, Frimley Green - 05/01/13.
Clear mid golden with a thin white head.
Nose is subdued, light pale malt, a little caramel and grass.
Taste is malt forward, caramel, touch buttery but not in a nasty diacetyl way, light fruit, hint of vanilla.
Medium bodied with spritzy carbonation, bitter dry finish.
Memories fade perhaps but this isn’t the beer it was when I first tried it in Praha some 11 or so years ago! Drinkable however and still a far superior option to most keg tap commercial drivel.

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)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The beer pours a clear golden color with approximately one finger of foam.
S: Smells pretty much like I remember it. Mostly bread and biscuit type malt notes but there is a slight hoppiness to it that I would describe as floral and spicy.
T: The flavor is similarly tilted toward the malt side with enough hoppiness to keep things refreshing. Bread with some earthy notes to start it off with a slight bitterness and more floral note taking over on the finish.
M: The body is light to medium with a moderate to high level of carbonation.
D: Definitely one of the classics. Maybe not my favorite pils, but certainly a good one.
