2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sort of reminds me of a mellow Heineken. The smell is rather nice, but the taste is nothing spectacular, and perhaps the sour taste comes a little too late to be apprechiated. A little less substance than I like, but perhaps that’s more the nature of this style. There is a sort of satisfying dry wheaty flavor that settles on the tounge.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can at home. Pours light amber with medium head. Aroma is bitter malts, mild hops and cardboard. Taste is light pilsner malts with some bitter. Thin bodied. Short ending. Watery. Nice macro pilsner but not that great.

Definitely my favourite mass produced pilsner; The original!
Smells nice and hoppy, Appearance is gold, bright, clear. Tastes very refreshing, with a great hoppy bitterness and perfect balance. Mouthfeel is fizzy and not thin. Overall a great beer. I wish more big brands would offer such a drinking experience.

Das original Pilsner Urquell ist der Inbegriff deutscher Braukunst. Was der Bayern Josef Groll da geleistet hat begeistert noch viele Jahre später. Ein herrlich frisches Pilsener wie es sein muss.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle BB 9/12/16
Golden color with good head.
Slight grainy aroma.
Mild bitterness with thin body and finish and a large does of wet cardboard which didn’t help matters.
Would be good to try a fresher version again in future but I must say, I have had better Pilsner than this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.5 can. Pours crystal clear golden yellow, with white frothy head, that disappears rather quickly. Surprisingly strong malt base for it’s ABV, with nice mild honey taste. Medium carbonation, with herbal, spicy notes of noble hops. Medium lasting bitterness. Nicely balanced and refreshing pilsner.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle from a local supermarket (around € 2). BB 02.04.2017. Pours clear, bright light golden with a small but persistent near white head. Aroma’s that of damp cornflakes and fakeish grassy hoppiness. Tastes clean, cerealy, grassy. A rather bitter finish. Creamy soft mouthfeel with crisp carbonation. So when did they decide they’ll do it with ’hop products’ instead of hops? Is that a direct result of SABMiller takeover? Overall it ain’t bad though - I prefer this to almost any widely available lager, and often choose this at Pudel for example, when in good company and it doesn’t matter what I have in the glass / to cleanse the palate from all the silly beers.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beer in the Czech Republic is frankly cheaper than water in restaurants so most of them are light it seems.
It was a light clear gold with a thin white head. There was a slightly malty/bitter aroma with a similarly light bitter taste. It was refreshing and it went well with the heaviness of Czech food but overall I wasn’t a super big fan. It was better on draft but not so much better that I’d increase the score overall by more than .2
It’s better than the generics where I am from but that isn’t saying much
