Bottle. White head, yellow body, Malty bitter sweet flavor, not much carbon dioxide (which I like).

Pours a beautiful golden color with a full froth. Head retention is lasting finally reducing to a full fluffy canopy. Strong aromas of sweet malts and flowery hops. Medium nectar with ample, cotton soft residual effers. This is a nice beer. Good malt backbone balanced by brisk velvety hops. The finish is delightful with a perfect hop bittering component. No offensive nuances at all. Highly recommended.

From the instant I popped the cap off this one, I could smell the hops - in a nice way. Pouring a just-right, rich gold colour, this was paired with an attractive white head which did leav a bit o’lace on departure. Aroma was again, hoppish, but not offensively so. Taste was a wee bit sharp, and enjoyable. Mouthfeel and aftertaste were also highly acceptable.

Green 11.2 oz bottle. Best by 23.09.2010.
Pop it open, no skunk, it is a pretty fresh bottle and has been kept out of the sun.
It pours a vibrant crystal clear gold with tons of bubbles and a giant white head that recedes leaving some lacing.
No skunk in the smell, but a nice dose of herbal hops and subdued but slightly sweet smelling malts. It smells like a Czech pilsener should, it is a prime example.
The taste is malty but with a nibble of hops, not like a German pils where there is perfect balance but this is good for a Czech. It is sweet but the hops level it out with some herbal bitterness.
It is a shame it is an AB product, but it is one of my favorite Czech pilseners.

This is definitely a great pilsner, not as good as budweiser budvar in my opinion though, it also has a similar mix of bitter and sweet aftertaste, but it’s just a little less bitter and sweet, so the taste is somewhat weaker.
Still better than most pilsners for sure.

Pours a archive, golden amber color. The white head stays for the drink. The lacing it leaves on the glass is superb! The aroma is light and just a little hoppy but fresh. The taste starts with a light bitterness giving way to a light maltiness and finishing with a refreshing bite. This beer is too enjoyable on a Texas Spring day!

It was love at first sip. The drinkability of this beer is off the charts. Full of the classic Pilsner grassiness and floral qualities, this pilsner ranks high on the list. It has a fruity, but not sweet and sugary taste, almost of cherries. I highly recommend this beer.

Something about the way the Pisners smell and look really appeals to me and enhances their taste. This beer is no different, but it is also not Urquel.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2003 Malty(!) Pilsener of Bohemian style. The right choice for people who prefer a bohemian pilsner with less edges and less body. Nicely honeysweet aftertaste. No evident flaws.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2006 This beer has a very complex taste: it begins with an almost fruity aroma followed by the bite of hops and ending with a rich grain taste. It acheives all this while remaining clean and refreshing. I tried this again under the name "Staropramen Premium Beer" and I can’t figure out if it’s the same brew or not; it was a while ago that I last drank it. This time around it’s an equally excellent brew, if anything it tastes a little bit less grassy, less fruity, and has a richer, fuller malt flavour.
