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.. 184.108.40.206 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.

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.

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: 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.

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.

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.

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.
