3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Excellent for what it is, a pilsner. Light yellow/golden color and typical pilsner aroma. As a general beer it’s good, but boring. Still sometimes you just want a light regular beer and this does the job.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden with a diminishing head. Floral aroma. Dominated by the signature hop with a slight light malty flavor. Not balanced imo.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Stuff Yer Face. Pale golden pour. Half inch white head. Crisp, clean hoppy taste. Had a bit of skunkiness to it. This beer is probably diifficult to get fresh in the states. That may explain it. Overall, good beer. Probably wouldn’t be running out to buy a 12 pack but would have it again.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, pours golden with a quickly waning head, not much lacing- just a few spotty patches on the glass. Smell is sweet and bready, some saaz aroma is detectable but slight. Taste is mildly bitter, some supportive malt sweetness and medium body. Finish is abrupt. It is obvious that this is a mass produced product but it is head and shoulders above the domestic counterparts like Budweiser (who legally stole the name of another czech pils-) and Miller(whose conglomerate Urquell is owned by). It has declined a bit even in just the last 5 years, but I still consider this to be the threshold for drinkability in an affordable everyday beer.

Poured from can. Great aroma, Nice color, Full flavor, normal bitter aftertaste (maybe a bit too much for my liking).

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gold-yellow colour with white head. Pretty nice taste but overestimated I think. There are a lot better czech beers than this one.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 Perhaps this embodies the style perfectly, if so than I blame the style and not the beer. Light pour from tap, yellowish color with little aroma. Sharp carbonation with floral hops and a slight honey finish. Little substance, thin and far too subtle for my palate.
Would I drink again? no.

UHH I DONT LIKE BELGIUMS BUT THIS ONE IS NOT GOOD. I LIKE DRINKING AMERICA OR CANADA. WAY BETTER THAN THIS PEEPEE. IT SMELL LIKE SKUNK OR MY CUSIN HOUSE. AND LET ME TELL YOU IM STICKING WITH PLINY(DELISCHIOUS) AS MUCH AS I CAN.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A wonderfully strong colour and smooth soothing flavour. You can’t stop at one demands to be drunk steadily but with respect.

Once upon a time this was my "model of meter" as well, and I´m sorry to say but during the communist era the quality was really ups and downs, but when it was at the top it WAS the model of meter.
