DrnkMcDermott (3072) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2009 Draft, at the St. Petersburg, Russia airport lounge, May, 2004. Now this is what an "original pilsner" should taste like, not the poor, skunked bottle I rated last summer. Fresh from a well-maintained tap, it’s a fine-looking beer, gold color, with a good head. A golden malt flavor, too, but just mellow enough to let a wonderfully delicate floral hop character come through. The best beer I’d had after a week of standard Russian pale lagers.
And yet, I can see a bit of the flavor lineage to the American Budweiser... let’s just say the St. Louis product is severely de-volved from the prototype.
Original rating: Bottled. Oooh, looks like my first taste of this classic brew is from a skunked bottle. Still, it has a great spicy hop nose and a decent head. I almost got kind of an orangey hop taste. It’s simply more of a beer taste. I’ll hope to try this again soon and re-rate it.

Again, as a curiosity, I wanted to try it. But not surprise as it is somewhat plain.

On tap at a restaurant in Kutna Hora. Clear golden with a big white head. Grassy, sweetish honey and bread aroma. Tastes of semi-sweet malts with just a faint touch of bitterness. Light bodied and slightly dry.

Une trčs bonne bonne pils, bien légčre qui passe trčs bien de façon courante. Le gout n’est pas spécialement prononcé mais assez bon, amerture faible et sympa.

Aroma - common lager, with malt, dried straws, some dried herbs, yeasts. Taste - watery, with malt, fresh chaff, grains, a bit of bitterness and yeasts. Good, with a very good aspect.
