went to dans yesterday to buy some "portable beer" and on exiting the checkout, i saw 2 x 6 packs of pilsner urquell with a clearance sticker of $11 each, i thought what a bargain and proceeded to place them in the trolley but then i thought back to christmas time when 4 out of 5 six packs of craft beer i had purchased were less than drinkable so i placed them back on the rack :angry: . i still can't believe they would be clearing this beer out , couldn't find aa bb date so left it alone. maybe they are starting to take notice and clearing their old stock?

Pilsner Urquell isn't a craft beer. It's $39 a box. Bout the same price as megaswill.

The best before is on the green strip on the back label.

first time i've seen it but so many people rave about it on this forum.
i assumed it must of been in the 20 bucks a six pack category, so it's not much better than ottenger then?

milob40.......... One of the best pilsners in the world IMHO, buy a six pack & make your own opinion. We all have different tastes/preferences.

+ a gazillion. I have one in my hand right now (how I knew where the best by date was). It's produced in a megafactory that knows how to bottle a beer - that was my point about it not being a stale "craftbeer" gusher that's $20 a sixer.

At $39 a box it's the best quality/price ratio in the bottle store by far.

That said - grab a Budvar or two - six of one and half a dozen of the other which one is king.

The diacetyl and melanoidins in PU is delicious and perfectly balanced by the bitterness. Perfectly bittersweet. A lot of people freak out though who are used to all the other Pilsners - the Boh Pils are in a class of their own.

Check out the BJCP Pilsner Styles. It's no Oetinger.

Also agree it's one of the best pilsners worldwide. Absoulutely lovely beer.

One of the rare occasions where the price tag has absolutely stuff all to do with the quality.

FWIW, i think that Oettinger at around the same price, is quite a decent beer too. Especially for the money. Not anywhere close to the same sport as the Urquell, but it's a better beer than most aussie megaswill, and priced lower too.

PU kicks ass.

Google "Budějovick Budvar". It's a pain in the ass to find a picture for you because there's a shitstorm of trademark crap with the brand as in the US it's Czechvar because of Budweiser but it's also "Budweiser Budvar" and **** knows. But google images is full of the "Budweiser" bottles.

It's red and white and says Budějovick Budvar on it here.

I reckon it's slightly better than Urquell - slightly tamer.

I agree with you Ross, and my latest clone is very close. This thread made me pour one, not an easy beer to brew.

Look awesome batz. Any chance you got the recipe. I hope to brew a few pilsners when I got some stock of beer.

I do decoction for my stepped mashes. My mash tun is small so I can't do infusion step mashes or direct heat.

I got it on your request ( i think it was you nick or it could of been manctle) found it a lot nicer then the trumer too. FUckloads better then the JS and EFES. Rice has no place in a pilsner ( my opinon and i will stick to it).

The PU is still in the fridge. I am having roast pork tonight so i will drink it with my roast pork.
