2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2008 330ml bottle from Unwins. Pale gold with white bubbly head. Along with Budvar, one of my favourites. Nice pilsner citric hop. OK in mouth with satisfying hop citric finish. More flavour than most lagers too.. 18.104.22.168 Re-rate Draught at blind tasting at Modry Abbe. Pretty looking beer, clear gold, thick cream head. Excellent carbonation. NO huge aroma, some hop on finish. No bad or off flavours, nothing to make it unattractive. It’s fine. Even some drinkability.

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)

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)

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ok, so it’s very seldom fresh at all in North America. I just remember a few years ago in Halifax when I had some straight off the boat. That’s where these high marks come from. When fresh, this is a first-rate pilsner. When not fresh, well, it’s like any other beer that isn’t fresh. Usually on this side of the ocean you’ll want to get it on tap or from the can, to avoid skunkage.

Very good pilsner, made in the town the style is named after, Plzen. The malts are nice, but don’t be fooled -- the malts are only there to serve as a counterweight to the blast of Bohemian hops. i’m not a big pilsner fan, but i’m always happy to drink this one. One suggestion: hit the brewery -- it tastes better in Plzen than it does in the States (slightly different recipe).

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 Pours golden yellow with slight white head. Sweet malty aroma with saaz hops protruding. The mouthfeel is surprisingly full with a forceful initial sweetness ending in the usual hoppy finish.

Tap @ Modrý Abbé.
6th beer in the blindtasting.
Pours clear golden with a slight green hue. Nice, creamy, white head. Weak aroma, sweet maltiness with subdued grassy hops. Medium carbonation with a nice, rather oily mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet chewy malts with a fine hoppy finish. More bitter than dry.
