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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 12, 2013 Nice dark golden color, not as yellow as most pilseners these days. Pretty much my ideal color for a pilsener. Nice white head of about one finger. Little bit musty smell, but full flavored taste. Malts and grains in the taste. Low to medium carbonation, medium body.

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...

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.

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.
