In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Plzeňský Prazdroj Pilsner Urquell

Aroma: “Light, bready Pils aroma, slight sulfur, and floral hops aroma. This sample tastes skunky. Aroma improves as it breathes, and malt improves as it warms.”

Flavor: “Faint, grainy Pils malt character. Malt sweetness balanced by a surprisingly bitter bite. Very light noble hops character. Finished clean with no fruity esters. Odd acidity in the finish. Not much hops flavor to usher in the bitterness. Skunky and slightly oxidized.”

Overall: “Enjoyable and flavorful Pils with emphasis on bitterness. Crisp, clean finish with a good balance of bitter hops to pale malt. Refreshing. Suffers from issues related to transportation and storage.”
