It is amazing how the method and place of delivery can impact upon the impression of a beer. Off the tap in the UK it is pretty ordinary, from the bottle in Prague it is OK but strangely even when presented in a plastic cup from a kiosk in Wenceslas square with a delightfully grilled white sausage and mustard on a roll it is sublime. Smooth, low hop bitterness but a perfectly soft adjunct to the spicy snack

The czech answer to an international standard lager. At a nice beerhouse in Prague it's brilliant, but I'm spoiled...

Very bland it had the same hoppy/flower taste
Pilsner Urquell had, but it was much lighter. It goes good with light foods like chicken, where as Pilsner Urquell goes good with chicken as well as heartier meals.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yellow. Fair head, frothy. Slight herbal aroma. Initial flavor of apple, aftertaste none. Bitter ending. Not the best example of Czech beers.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ah the green bottle. Luckly I got this one fresh from the box before it had a chance to lose it in the light. Hoppy aroma decent. Dark golden yellow with a large pale straw head. Not bad. Hoppy flavour with bitters that like to hang off your tounge. Dencent over all but nothing to stunning. I had the impression of pencil shavings when I let the beer warm up close to room temperature as I neared the end of the bottle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good hop aroma. Light in color, bubbly head. Excellent mix of
hop flavor and malt to create a bitter-smooth flavor. Does taste a
bit watery at finish.
