On tap. Enjoyed on oct´12. Pours bright golden yellow into my Tumbler glass. Veiled appearance. Very close & creamy lasting crown made of white froth. Copious rings & collars on sides. Strong floral aroma rounded by fresh grass & hay hues. Flavor profile hands citric bitterness, subtle maltiness as well as lemon zest astringency. Light body & soft carbonation. Creamy texture & clean bitter sensation. Dry & crispy finish. Fresh wood notes. Forget what you´ve experienced before with Urquell. Try this masterpiece!!

.5L on Tap served in Glass Stein at Na Parkene Beer Pub; Plzen, Czech Republic

A: A cloudy pale gold; two finger head that lingers; soft veil of lace on the glass.

S: Light toasted malts and yeast. Softer and very different from bottled version

T: Malty and a light touch of hops. Mellows to a delicate bitterness.

M: Medium bodied and obviously different than the bottled version.

D: Very drinkable, finished two with a plate of sausage; a perfect matching.

Slightly cloudy, light golden color. Thin white head, decent retention. Picked up on the floral hops, bread-like malt. Some yeast seems present. Flavors include more of the malty/grainy/bread, floral hops, and yeast. Has a very unmatured flavor which is not typical for a pilsner. Medium bodied/moderately to mid-low carbonation. Very smooth.

It's certainly a treat to sample a beer that's only served in this manner in one location in the world. I found it very fresh, flavorful and easy to drink. You can taste the draft/bottled Pilsner Urquell here but this version of it is certainly worth seeking out if you find yourself in the region.

On-tap at Kolkovna Olympia, Prague, Czech Republic

A: The beer is slightly hazy golden yellow in color and has a two finger high white head that slowly died down. No carbonation is visible.
S: There are aromas of grassy hops and bready malts in the nose, along with some notes of yeast.
T: The initial taste is very malty, but quickly transitions to a much more balanced taste between the malt and hops that is also very buttery and has some hints of malty sweetness. The beer tastes very fresh.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate (slightly thicker than the regular version) and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The hops contribute a little dryness in the finish.
D: The beer is quite drinkable; I would definitely have this again if I am in the Czech Republic.

4/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The beer is clouded orange, has a white head that leaves good lacing and some curtains.

The smell is lively, grains, grass, straw, and the hops.

The taste is fresh, white bread, green apples and bitter nettles-like aromas.

Medium carbonation, refreshing with a nice dry finish.

This beer is really easy to drink, well-balanced and tasty.
