Michael Jackson, rest his soul, rated this a world-class pilsner. It’s the original pilsner for crying out loud and do I see ratings in the 2’s? Apologies for not being ’extreme’ enough or alcoholic enough but for the finest example of the style, look no further. I don’t care if they have gone from 5 strains of yeast to 2 or if they brew it in Poland and Russian now under SABMiller or if it’s not as malty as it was in nineteen aught four, this is Pilsner Urquell, the original pilsner, a class unto itself.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Słby zapach, nie jest zbyt mocno wyczuwalny. Czuć chmiel. Nie ma smrodu/alkoholu.
Piwo klarowne, widać pojedyncze bąbelki. Piana delikatna, osadzająca się na kuflu. Utrzymuje się do końca delikatna obwoluta do samego końca.
W smaku wyczuwalna goryczka do ostatniego łyku o dość długim posmaku. Bez fantazji.
Jak na koncerniaka - przyzwoite.

tap in leeds, from a fresh cask(eg tapped yesterday). I was suprised by the low ratings below so felt compelled to add my own.Nice head on tap -bit more than the bottle.Full buttery malt flavour dominates,finished by crisp hop bite , very pleasant. Not as hoppy as some german pils, but still lovely very moreish.
