Pilsner Urquell - Czech Republic 11-3-11

The Low Down:
Once again apologies for the missing bottle cap, but this beer should need no cap-like introduction.

As you may already know, or at least expect, Plzen, where this beer is brewed, is the home of the Pilsner.

All I can say is that this beer has more hops than a Daft Punk discography. The Flavour is almost unique, as if they took the concept of Pilsner to the extreme. Since they have been brewing this since 1842, we can assume every other Pilsner has simply dulled down the flavour, and suffered for it.

Goes down hoppy with some citrus notes. Finishes like a bronco, with another slam of hops.

Packaging: 7/10
Gold and red is a classic on the light green bottle. the  addition of "The Original Pilsner" doesn't hurt.
Refreshment: 7/10
Despite everything this is refreshing and almost tangy.
Flavour 8/10:
Hoppity Hop the Hips and or Hops. This beer tastes like its ingredients, and they are delicious.
Alcohol Content: 4/10
4.4%. This is about what you would expect form the crem de la creme of Pilsners..
Price: 5/10
$7.50 lets face it. You could have spent more on an Italian drivel beer. 
Total: 31/50

My eyes bugging out of my head is a testament to the true hoppiness of this beer. It will explode your brain. Drink it ice cold, and if you like hops, you are in for a treat.
