3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled - 500ml, imported. Pale honey shade, low carbonation and a slight head. Aroma is predominantly of alcohol, with a little hops thrown in for good measure. There is a very smooth, tasty and rounded malt flavour, matched by an unusually bitter hop flavour, more-so than others in a similar style. Considering the aroma, the alcohol is surprisingly well hidden when it comes to the tasting.

Pale gold clear under a small short lasting head, Faint sharp metallic sappy hops aroma. Medium light body. Low carbonated. Medium bitter hoppy flavours and some malt on warming. Crisp bitter finish and aftertaste, I found the bitter flavours were borderline stale on this one.

Tasted alright. A little bitter for my preference, but had a nice balance. Nothing was too overpowering. Very crisp.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2013 light crisp flavorless pilsner. Original rate: 09/04/02 6:45pm....Re-rate: I can’t say I dislike this beer as much as I did the first time, maybe if anything I have gained an appreciation for a decent pilsner. This brew is clean and refreshing w/ slight malt sweetness to compliment a bitter hop middle and finish. Nothing special, but not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very refreshing brew. Weak malty aroma, though a bitter taste of hops in the palate but not as much as in Urquell. No head on this one.

Decent enough, but not on par with a good Pilsener Urquell. Tends to be skunky.

Decent beer, but nothing great. Generic Bohemian hops aroma, flavor is malty, somewhat spicy. Slight metallic mouthfeel.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma old and skunky. Still a good appearance and a nice flavor despite the inherent skunky problems. Good all around Pilsener. I just wish I could try it a little fresher or on tap somewhere. If someone knows a place in Ohio, drop me a line.

I’m not generally a pilsner drinker and after this Czech beer, I’m still not, but I’m more cultured now.As always a mediocre Czech pils is still a much better than the rest of the world,Floarly,light malt flavors, clean,crisp,somewhat dry.
