2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
It was great, because I got it for free as a birthday gift, but otherwise it was pretty much on the negative side. Extremely bland flavor and a sharply bitter aftertaste. It barely had an appearance as it is nearly clear with a slight brown tint too it, and it really (no really) didn’t smell like I should even taste it. So yeah, I liked it, right.

This a beer that will not bore you. An excitingly complex palate with some bitterness combined with a very smooth body make it one of my all time favorites. The bottled version doesn’t quite compare to the real thing you get in Praha. If you have never had one, well, your loss...

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2005 On tap is the best way to enjoy. The next best is a 12 pack that hasn’t been punched for a handle, so to protect from light. The six pack is skunked 99.9% of the time.
Buttery mouth feel. Hops and carbonation makes razor sharp. Firm dry malt framed so nicely by bitterness. Has never let me down, solid. Refreshes in hot weather and pleases on chilly days. An excellent everyday choice. Number one pilsner.

They say it’s the most typical of its kind, and I tend to agree. Any drawbacks have more to do with this type of beer than its individual characteristics.

Good aroma, taste like a malty lagar. Medium body with a green bottle taste. Some hops. Not use to the style.

Decent pilsner. Pours pale golden color, minimal head. Clear, sparkly, and crisp. Very refreshing. Short bitter finish. Good, but it wasn’t great. Hight expectations since it had been talked up by folks in Germany.

Poured a very golden color. Average head that lasted a few minutes. Had an aroma that was rather skunky, but the beer tasted good. Strong flavor.

This is an excellent beer that rates just a shade behind Czechvar (Budvar). Lacks that pilsner’s smoothness. Still, this is a tremendous brew. Great hoppy aroma and taste. Some grassy notes. Great palate with pleasant bitter aftertaste. Maitaining its quality while becoming more widespread in this country.

This beer is the perfect example of why I don't like pilsners. Transparent; light in color; crisp flavor with a slightly rubbery aftertaste; and almost alcohol-free (only 4.4%). Makes a good mouthwash.

12oz bottle: Believe it or not, I bought this beer because I saw a review on tv (thirsty traveller for those that know the show). A very balanced flavor, with a bit of hops for an aftertaste. All in all, a very good beer. I will definately be buying this one again.
