This beer has a sharp, clean bitterness. The Saaz hops (its native to the region) leave you with beautiful aromatics and the high carbonation make this beer a delight! Good head, nice a white. A thorough thirst quencher, this beer tastes great with burgers and fried snacks!

Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a golden color with a big white head. The head faded fast to give a lighter amount of lacing.
Smell – The smell is of biscuit notes as well as floral/grassy and a light skunky aroma.
Taste – The taste starts out crisp and malty. There are hints of barley malt and some corn up front. These remain throughout the flavor, but other tastes come and go throughout. In the middle of the taste there is a lighter sugary and caramel sweetness. This fades however at the end where some floral and grassy flavors come to the taste and leave a crisp slightly bitter flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- A lighter body with a higher level of carbonation. Very good for the lightness of the beer.
Overall – A good beer on a nice warm day (as how I enjoyed it today). While not huge on favor or aroma, it is very easy drinking and refreshing.

Poured into a fluted pilsener glass. The beer is a nice golden color. A fizzy white head sits on top, dissipating to a film. Random lacing sticks to the glass. The beer smells skunky, by far this beers downfall. Faint grains and barley notes exist though the skunk, however. The beer tastes a little skunky at first, but then malt sweetness comes in. Without the skunk, this beer would be much better. The mouthfeel is medium-light and somewhat carbonated.
Overall, a skunky experience that should be better. Why breweries use green bottles, I will never know.

No not Steve Urkel. This is a quality fresh pilsner brew from the Czech Republic that is a great thirst quencher called Urquell. I really like the fresh taste to this beer. They claim the water is great there. There is no bad after taste. Reminds me of Carlsberg quite a bit. It's not too bitter and not too sweet. It's just right. The clean fresh taste delivers a great mouthfeel and drink-ability. Goes down smooth and fast.
Drink this beer with the Euro Cup and watch Czech Republic Petr Cech the great goalkeeper do his thing when the Czech team is playing. Good luck my bohunk friends.
