On tap at Purkmistr Restaurant

Purkmistr's standard light (svetle) lager is a clear golden color with a white head that has modest retention.

The aroma is flawless, with a floral-toned mix of malt and faint hops. Fine sweet and malty flavor.

M - smooth and crisp.

O - Certainly above average for a Czech pilsner, meaning very good indeed.

Forget the mass produced Eurolager now being made in Pilsen, this is the real deal. Purkmistr's standard lager is just what you expect a good pilsner to be.

It pours a dark golden colour with a bright white head, and a distincy floral, herbal nose. In the mouth it is smooth and with a lovely bite to it, which slightly more famous pilsners used to have.

Quite simply one of the best pilsner style lagers I have had in the Czech Republic.

Two bottled purchased from Purkmistr brewery in Plzen, Czech.

.5L Bottle served in Purkmistr beer glass.

A- Clear, Pale Gold; one finger head with not much retention; not much lacing.

S- Toasted malts, hops and earthly herbs.

T- Sweet toasted malts with distinct hops and a touch of yeastiness. Mellows to a crisp yet bitter finish.

M- Medium bodied, mild carbonation.

D- Great beer, stands out from other pale Czech lagers; keeps the same qualities in the bottle as from the tap.
