3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2006 Pale golden body under rapidly subsiding head of coarse white lace. Faint aroma of malt and crisp hops. Clean malty taste with hints of straw; clean crisp bitter hop finish. A very well-made pilsner, though not that exciting. Certainly not the best pilsner I’ve had.

THIS is what a true Pilsner is supposed to taste like. I only wish American beer companies could make their beer taste like this.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 This ancestoric and very classic pils has a nice white head and a hoppy aroma. Golden colour. The flavour is bright and malty. Crisp taste and a long bitter aftertaste. A must for all fans of the pils style.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2006 Beautiful golden color. Nice aroma and an even better taste. The floral hops certainly come through. I had been looking forward to trying this one and I wasn’t disappointed. I really enjoyed this pilsener and wished I’d had more than one bottle at the time.
Re-rate: Now having tried it on tap, I love it even more. At least for right now, it’s what I order if it’s available. Just a terrific beer.

Pilsner Urquell... Decent aroma, nice to look at, and very flavorful. The down side to this is that it’s not a very complex beer, and the head is practically non existent. The flavor is good, just totally 2 dimensional. Very drinkable, though. Great for a hot day. Not too fizzy either, just the right amount of bubbly for a pilsner.

They say it’s the most typical of its kind, and I tend to agree. Any drawbacks have more to do with this type of beer than its individual characteristics.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2006 Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass...well...this is just a beautiful beer. Golden "beer" color with a short, steady head that is constantly refreshed by the continuous stream of fizzy bubbles rising through the brew. The aromatic, floral saaz hops eagerly great the nose and give a hint of the flavor to come. Fizzy goodness on the tongue with a great balance of malt, hops, carbonation or is it carbonation, malt and then hops. The balance is there and satisfies my love of good beer. I can definitely call this my favorite pilsner and also one of my favorite beers.
