2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml green bottle from LCBO. Pours golden with an average-sized, average-lasting head and decent lacing. Kinda corny smelling; reminded me of an American macro lager with some fruity citrus aroma. Body was a bit thin and watery for what I was expecting, but the finish was crisp with some hop presence. Decent but I prefer Czechvar over this by a long shot.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 500ml. A light golden colour with an average-sized lasting head. A musty, citrus aroma. The taste has alcohol, honey and spices. A somewhat hoppy, moderately bitter finish with citrus. High carbonation. This is pretty good.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear, pale gold appearance, average head, nice lacing. Fresh mown hay aroma fades quickly and turned corny as it warmed. Taste was clean, crisp, vegatal, a bit hoppy, with a light touch of sweet malt. Thin bodied, loads of carbonation. Lacked depth and character.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a large foamy white head. Aroma starts with the expected skunkyness (from the dreaded green bottle) followed by grain, honey, fruit and mild hops. Flavour’s somewhat better: light malt and grassy hops with hints of fruit and honey and a light bitter finish -- a little watery and could be more flavourful but at least it doesn’t taste skunky. Light to medium bodied. Pretty mediocre but a bit better then your average European Lager.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep gold with a frothy 1/2 inch head. Lots of fine lacing. Smells grassy, hint of skunk, nice level of hops.
Taste is grassy, nice noble hops in the finish. Not very complicated. Just the tiniest hint of skunk. Pretty tasty, just a bit watery. Could be a bit more crisp but overall a decent pilsener. Good fo the Atlanta summer.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
I have 3 beers remaining in my fridge that must be gone by the close of business tomorrow so I can get out of state. This beast is one of them. Don’t know how I got it, don’t know why I’m about to drink it. I cracked the green bottle open and before I could do anything else I was hit with the most unpleasant (unless you are lumpy) aroma of skunk. The smell got worse once I poured it. Ugggh. Pours a copper body with a good sized lasting head. Stinks like few beers I have had. A bit of straw flavor, sweeter than I expected too. Metallic notes take over after the initial taste and this one gets ugly. Ramen noodle taste rough chemical bitter at the end. I’m going to go brush my teeth again after I pour this out. I just saw the fly I have been trying to get rid of turn around once it got close to this.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
[Bottled] To get this strait it never really was half the beer the Pilsner Urquell once was, but at least it used to be a dry, firm and freshly hoppy pilsner. That has chnged. It pours pale golden with average head. Perhaps the slightest hint of saaz hops remains, but it’s really Heinekenized and void of any real character. Medium bodied with somewhat mellow mouthfeel and low-medium bitterness. Hasn’t got much to separate it from the Carlsberg’s of the world anymore. I’ve had my last bottle of it...
