Bottled, Pasteurised. Golden beer with thick white head, highly carbonated. I really enjoyed this pilsner, great clean dry flavours, sharp and definite in its aims. Refreshing and juicy, pretty decent.

Very good pilsner, made in the town the style is named after, Plzen. The malts are nice, but don’t be fooled -- the malts are only there to serve as a counterweight to the blast of Bohemian hops. i’m not a big pilsner fan, but i’m always happy to drink this one. One suggestion: hit the brewery -- it tastes better in Plzen than it does in the States (slightly different recipe).

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle from Partridges in Chelsea. Pours golden yellow, well carbonated with foamy off-white head. Nose; dominant hay/grass and some citrus. Taste; velvety mouthfeel, grassy, slight lemon, smooth, crisp but a bit weak. As lagers go its pretty good (i.e. better than fosters), but not for me.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2012 Re-rate 1/24/12: Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks beerandbeyond. UNPASTEURIZED. Clear golden. Buttery aroma with a bit of malt and a bit of grassy hops. A slightly buttery flavor with some sweetish malt and a nice bitter grassy hops finish. Medium-bodied. Not bad. 5/3/7/3/13=3
Re-rate 6/28/08: Draught at a blind tasting at Modrý Abbé in Klatovy. Clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma is quite weak with some light maltiness. Sweetish flavor with some malt, bread notes and a quite bitter finish. Light to medium-bodied. OK. 5/3/5/3/11=2.7
On tap. Clear golden color with a medium head. Aroma is very nice hoppiness. Flavor begins with some malt and then makes room for good hop bitterness that’s getting stronger until the finish. A medium body. 7/4/7/3/15=3.6
