UPDATED: JAN 19, 2012 Golden see through with white head. Watery texture. Aroma of hops and malts. lively carbonation. Finish has a sour bitter bite from hops. My respects to Plzen, but this is mediocre. Rerating Aug. 09. Lots of grain and grassy hops. Dry and crisp. Simple , tasty and well balanced Bohemian pils.From 2,9 to 3,2.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly creamy crisp lager aroma - not particularly hoppy. Refreshing subtle hoppy taste, again a bit creamy. The hop bitterness is quite short, but it is most pleasant while it’s there. Perhaps a little thin, but that makes it quite a drinkable pilsner. This is the beer all other pilsners should be compared to - if it’s worse than this it really isn’t very good.

Bottle at Hotel Pav in Prague. We just arrived, are now having the first beer.
Clear golden - white head. Hay, fresh lemon, citrus, straw. Fresh - better than bottled Urquell in DK.....

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 12, 2013 Nice dark golden color, not as yellow as most pilseners these days. Pretty much my ideal color for a pilsener. Nice white head of about one finger. Little bit musty smell, but full flavored taste. Malts and grains in the taste. Low to medium carbonation, medium body.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clean hop aroma, not so hoppy as American pale ales, but hoppy. Golden amber color with a decent white head. Medium mouthfeel. Instant hit of hop bitter, quickly balanced by malt. And it goes on like that. Bitterness is ever present, and the malt still hangs in at the finish. It’s not a lot of malt, but it’s not a gigantic amount of hop either. Bitter enough to keep around the mouth. Won’t replace a decent ale, but better than 90+% of the filtered golden lagers.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Green bottle poured a clear gold with a minimal white head. Aromas of some skunk, sweet malt and and some floral hops. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, a bit of carmel, some earthy hops with a pleasent bitter finish.
