BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Plzeňský Prazdroj
Czech Republic
prazdrojvisit.cz

Style: Czech Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
While most lagers give away most of their taste profile in the front of the mouth, Pilsner Urquell only hints at its flavour there. Instead, it develops in the middle, followed by a refreshing, clean finish and balanced aftertaste, practically inviting you to have another.

Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go, let’s go... So we got ourselves Pils Urq here... and at an average score or 3.6, Raul ain’t feeling that. He’s thinking some Russian judges might have screwed the review, cuz he’s thinking something a lil bit higher. Light, crisp, borderline clean... It may not be as clean as Natalia Vodianova, but hell, what is?

Honestly pretty disappointing for the original pilsener. Beautiful, clear golden color with 1 finger of foam that quickly dissipates to nothing. A whiff of skunkiness hit me immediately upon opening the bottle,but that fortunately dissipated pretty quickly and was not present in the taste of the beer.

I detect very little malt character or hop flavor, but lots of hop bitterness. Goes down easy, but without leaving very much of an impression.

Dense white head on a light golden straw body. Flowery hops, a bit earthy, grains, light sweetness. A hint of subtle mineralic touches, light bitterness. Smooth light body with soft carbonation. Very well balanced. I get why it's the gold standard.

A: Pours a golden color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: Pilsner malt, grain, bready notes, and some earthy, lightly spicy hops

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the spicy hops and grain and then goes into a light sweetness with the bready malt. Finishes with lingering spicy hops

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid pilsner that is super easy to drink.

I have been drinking this in Prague for the last two days mostly on draft.
Find it amazing for the style, low ABV so its easy to have a couple + for lunch or dinner and continue without a buzz. No bitternes at all, drinks smooth. I tried other Pilsners but this was the best. Great with food. Im a fan. I hope the imported to USA is the same.

Crisp, tasty, refreshing, cool cans, great price. I grab this whenever I see the 4 pack of old school cans reasonably fresh. For about 7 bucks it's a steal for a really solid pilsner. yb
