Certainly a decent pils, with a god hoppy character. Not the most exciting, but I’ve had a lot, lot, worse and this one is very drinkable.

Big bottle. Pours a rich gold with a moderate head, that bugs out pretty quick. I really hate rating pale lager type beers because they all taste very similar to me. Malty flavor, some hops. Not bad.

This Czech Republic pilsner is claimed to bring you in touch with the roots of authentic pilsner. Expect a crisp yet bitter taste with a delightful hop flavoring.

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.
