3.05/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Golden blonde color, beautiful foam, creamy and compact, sticky and persistent.
Malty smell, but not too fresh.
Better in the mouth, with malty notes, cereals, and freshness, and a good balancing hop.
Low carbonation for a better drinkability.
Decent taste, light body, average aftertaste.
There are better czech pils.

Serving type: on-tap

3.7/5  rDev +11.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 5

A - Straw yellow with a fizzy white head that quickly shrinks to a hazy veil over the beer.

S - The smell is grainy, a tad sweaty and a bit metallic-skunky.

T - The taste is very muted, mostly clean pale malt colored with the flavors of the skunky, sweaty bohemian hop.

M - The beer is quite thin, almost watery, but it is smooth, crisp and refreshing.

D - While this beer is far from fantastic, its drinkability is not so. Basically, this is a great contender for das boot, or any vessel over one liter.

Nose is of malt and rich nuts like cashews. Taste is similar with big malts up front transitioning to floral and then drying in the finish with mild hop bite. Mouthfeel is generous and given the style how could it not score high on drinkability.
Let's have more beers like these imported and brewed in the US.

Thanks

On-tap at Tap and Table for $5/pint. This is a tasty and fresh Czech pilsener - something that's hard to some by. A lot of alleged Czech pils are really just bland macro lagers. There's a smooth, dry bready malt taste and the pils finishes with a mildly bitter spicy hop taste. Very nice and very refreshing. Pils-lovers should seek this out.

A rather dry Pils...not much of a hop profile, predominantly dry and even a bit straw like. Head retention and lace are favorable but smell is a bit sour for the style, under my understanding. Keg code is current (July 11th 2009 expiration). An in code Pils should not have sour notes. But, in this case its actually quite refreshing. Its hot and muggy outside. It fits. But, if I were more objective, I would see this flaw in a more negative sense. Clean finishing makes it a great summer thirst quencher.

It was one of those warm, sticky Fridays, and I was going to have a nice beer with my lunch - a few of the usual suspects on tap, then I spotted this!

Original Pilsner, served in its appropriate glassware (a tall mug, with the Burgerbrau logo)... nice!

OK, it's malty, but in line with Urquell and Budvar (as well as what I remember about Kumburak). Huge head, nice lace, hops are there, and leave almost a hint of peppery spiciness, but not overly floral. A great start to what looks to be a great rest of the day... :)

I sampled this on tap at the Lotus Lounge in New York City. It was served in a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazy golden with a thin white head.

Smell: Light hops with toffee and caramel malt aromas.

Taste: Sweet and toasty malts. Hop flavors are light and the beer lacks any real bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light carbonation, light-bodied and watery.

Drinkability: Light and easy to drink, but there aren't really any great flavors to make you want to drink it.

Overall: Simple and lacking in flavor and depth.

This came fresh on tap at the Scottish Arms. It poured deep straw gold and was topped with a thick white champagne head. The aroma is dominated by noble hops, all flower, with just a touch of citrus. Taste is a wonderful hop punch, not overly bitter, just a nice fresh hop character. More orange citrus. Light slick mouth feel very quenching. This was the 2nd time I’d enjoyed this beer this week. This time from proper glassware (nice fluted mug rather than thick glass one it came in last time). Really is nice to enjoy fresh draft pilsner.
