2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Green bottle poured a clear gold with a minimal white head. Aromas of some skunk, sweet malt and and some floral hops. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, a bit of carmel, some earthy hops with a pleasent bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, Pasteurised. Golden beer with thick white head, highly carbonated. I really enjoyed this pilsner, great clean dry flavours, sharp and definite in its aims. Refreshing and juicy, pretty decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light malty aroma with some citrus. Appearence is wonderfull, fully lasting creamy head. Heavy bitter flavour, with average duration. Soft carbonated.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden pils with thin white head. Grassy grainy malt aroma with nice crisp hops. Saaz hops come out of the crisp chalky malt, nicely balanced. Medium bodied. Classic.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2016 Golden with a big, frothy head. Hops-dominated nose of pine and grass with some malt. Rich hoppy flavour resulting in a long-lasting bitterness with a solid malt backbone. This is probably the one style where the original standard is still one of the most interesting versions, at least when fresh on tap in the Czech Republic...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle from Partridges in Chelsea. Pours golden yellow, well carbonated with foamy off-white head. Nose; dominant hay/grass and some citrus. Taste; velvety mouthfeel, grassy, slight lemon, smooth, crisp but a bit weak. As lagers go its pretty good (i.e. better than fosters), but not for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty and hoppy aroma and taste with some hay. It starts with some malty, almost buttery sweetness on the tongue, immediately followed by a hoppy, but soft bitterness. Long hopbitter finish. Good pilsener, but doesn’t live up completely to its reputation.
