2.33/5 rDev -30.2%
12 oz bottle poured into pint glass
A: Poured a dark copper color with a good fingers worth of head that settles to a thin layer with no lacing to speak of.
S: Little skunk here... very grassy with a little lemon zest mixed in.
T: Little flat on flavor.. There is skunk here... pretty grassy here with touches of graininess but not much else here.
M: Pretty crisp and well carbonated but pretty flat over all
O: Not very pilsner like to me... A little more Euro lager for my taste. Not bad if you a thirsty.

Deep gold color, clear. Tons of fine bubbles rising up to the top. Frothy head, leaves a nice lacing behind.
Sweet grass, pale malts, crisp.
Malt forward. Bready, pale malts, grassy. Light-medium bitterness, mostly herbal, a little lemony. Finish off dry bitter. Body is light, creamy texture, a little dry aftertaste, soft carbonation.

Best before 5/17/13.
Pours a clear golden color with a foamy bone colored head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and a sweetened corn flake aroma. Taste is much the same with a mild grassy bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer that is drinkable but not very exciting.

Good Czech Pilsners are difficult to produce and even more difficult to come by. Staropramen isn't one of them.
A standard pour yields a standard Pilsner body: light amber body, slightly thin, gassy head. A few scattered bubbles slowly make their way to the top.
The nose is fine, though there is a tinniness in it that can't be ignored.
The tinniness ruins the beer's taste. There are some good things going on here: The malt aroma is nice, and the bittering hops would balance it well if the tinny taste, probably yeast-produced, weren't getting in the way. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the aftertaste, in which the subtle, crisp hoppy flavors come through. Darn.
Czech Pilsners are among my favorite styles of beer. I wish that more of ones that are available in my area did justice to the style.

As Pilsner Urquell is one of my favorites; I thought I would give this Czech beer a try. It has a brassy body, lots of carbonation and a big pure white head. The aroma and flavor is in line with a Bud or PBR, but a bit more upscale. The malts have more interesting layering and likewise the hop finish is more complex. If you are in the mood for something along the lines of a PBR, but with some more sophistication, this is a good option.
