3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I was surprised how different the tast is compared to the filtered Pilsner Urquell. Bitter and fresh hops. Hard to find.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught at Tritonia, 12/1/16.
Clear, well-carbonated with a large, very firm, white head atop. Deep burnished bronze in color.
The nose is full of fresh, aromatic hops contributing both fruitiness (cherries, apples, lemons) and fresh cut, green grass. The perfect amount of dried hay and very light biscuit sits in the background, while a large amount of minerality and light honey play about as well. Absolutely stunningly clean, fresh and with not a single thing to complain about, really.
The flavor is more of the same, with a soft, malty, yet well-attenuated texture featuring sourdough drizzled with honey-like maltiness, fresh grass, light floral notes and very gentle lemon and apricot fruit notes. Engaging carbonation and a crisp finish make it incredibly drinkable. Pretty god damned phenomenal and well worth the long wait over the years to finally find this.

Pilsner Urquell sin filtrar. Si la filtrada me gusta, esta me encanta. Una sorpresa.

Sample at the brewery. All pils might be like this. Bread and flowers in aroma and full flavour.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Na Parkanu pub, Plzen.
Golden, slightly hazy, creamy high head. Aroma rich malty, cereal, slight dough tones. Palate creamy, low carbonation. Well tapped. Taste balanced, chewy and easily drinkable. A different beast than pasteurised and filtered example.
Tap from Pilsner Urquell Brewery from, fermented and lagered in oak casks.
Golden, very hazy. High creamy head. Very simillar to the one from pub albeit a bit more carbonated but maybe just a different tapping. I liked this one a tiny bit more but technically it really tastes extremely simmilar.

Nice lager good.malty backbone complemented by a slightly sweet and spicy finish. Maybe a bit too heavy thought.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Large serving, perhaps around 20 oz., on tap at World of Beer in St. Paul, Minnesota. Consumed on 11-16-16. Mostly clear but lightly hazy bronze. Not as hazy (let alone cloudy) as I was expecting. Moderate to large amount of long-lasting, fluffy, off-white head. Liquid looks good but head looks great. Good lacing. Fresh noble hops aroma. Fleshly cooked cracker. Pretzel. A bit of spice. Very Eastern Central European in smell. Dry fresh, somewhat beery taste. Very nice, complex finish. Mineral. A lot of dry, borderline bitterness. First couple of sips underwhelmed, but I liked it better after that. Subtle peach. Nice but subtle, lingering, dynamic bitterness in the aftertaste. Easy to drink. Pillowy in palate. Light to medium body. Soft and frothy. Whatever is going on with the palate really works. Really, really good. Lives up to the hype. A fresher, more complex version of the already good original. Very glad I took the opportunity to finally try this one.

Opaque golden yellow, bit lasting, lacing foam head. Barley aroma, some ha noes. Nice fresh beer taste. Again some farm notes, not unpleasant. (Madrid 201611)
