when fresh this beer has a mild and pleasent flavor, those who got skunky beer should give there negative comments to the store who sold them old stock?

Pours light gold, modest head. A slightly floral aroma, lots of crisp bitterness and a malty, drinks smooth.

Everyone seems to harp that this is the prototype of a Czech pilsner, but if this is the case, then why are so many other similar beers and beer styles from other countries not rated anywhere near as highly as this one? A good-enough brew for me.

500ml can from LCBO. Straw thin transparent body with large frothy head. Great appearance. Classic pilsner aromas. Slight bitterness on the relatively long finish, for a pilsner. Good carbonation.

Obviously pilsner smell and taste...little maltier than most pilsners...bitter finish that is deeper than most other hops...hard to describe, slightly sweet then gets bitter

Golden pour with average dense head. Aroma is sweet malt and european hops. Refreshing character, high drinkability. Truly a pilsner prototype.

From the bottle, so it’s not at it’s freshest, and this is a style that suffers for that. The nose gives off a whiff of skunk that fortunately doesn’t come through on the tongue. A nice crisp pilsener, some grains in the background. The Saaz hops are light so they don’t overwhelm the malt.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light retention and light lacing. Smells of vegetables, sweet malt and caramel. Tastes of sweet malt, corn and straw. Sweet aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.5L bottle. Pours a clear golden with a rocky white head and decent lacing. Aromas are herby hop, hay and cooked vegetables (canned corn). Mild sweetness at the beginning and middle, with resiny, piney and herby hop flavor that develops to a dry hop linger, though not overpowering bitterness. Medium body with a creamy(ish) mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, really a tasty pilsener (the original!). Nice hop flavor, good balance, and nice mouthfeel all around.
