For anyone that’s had this, is it really as good as its rating indicates, or does its rarity, combined with the ambiance of the catacombs, inflate the score significantly?

I’m just wondering because its score is so far superior to the median Bohemian Pils, and a full .51 better than its closest rival on
this list.

That is a poor list and reflects how unexplored the Czech Republic really is in terms of beer rather than the best of the style.

I havn’t had the unfiltered PU, but I’m sure it is excellent, and I’m sure the ambiance contributes to that. Of course it is a style of beer that is best fresh, and everyone who has the unfiltered version has it fresh so that is going to help the score.

It is delicious and like nothing else. The atmosphere isn’t all that great either, at least in the big brewery called "Beer World." The barrel server was a grumpy curmudgeon when I was there too. Still I’ll never forget that cloudy orange hop elixir. They should all the shot for filtering and pasteurizing it!

Quite a few Ratebeerians will be going to the CR next year (myself included), so we should see some improvement in our coverage of this country’s fine brewing culture.

I can’t wait to go back. I only went to Prague and Kutna Hora but I loved it. The summer gathering is a long shot but I will have to look in to it.

Iv no doubt its one of the finest beers ever. However its probably one of the most under rated styles ever too just because its a lager.

This is surprising for me!
I didn’t know the BI was exporting to the US...

I enjoy this beer everytime I go back home to see my family (I used to live 15km from there); drinking it takes you back to the roots of German beer.
You’ll get your pleasure from sitting comfortably and drinking a beer with so much style, so nice Saaz hop character, so much harmony... rather than the powerful concoctions that we are all used to drink.

Look for it! and cheers!

Ambience? You get a small, white plastic cup and you’re standing in a freezing cold cellar!
