Brewers Description:Since 1842 we have used only the purest, most natural ingredients to create a beer of golden opulence. From the soft crystal clear waters, to the superior Bohemian and Moravian barley and noble hops from the Saaz region. Even our yeast has a centuries-old pedigree…

Considering this, it would of course be inconceivable to simply drink our pure golden pilsner. This brewing icon, coveted by the discerning, is a lager to be slowly savoured and relished.


Catching the light, the clear golden amber colour and creamy head beckons…


Whirl gently to release the floral aroma, raise the glass to your mouth and inhale deeply. Relish for a moment the aromas of fresh baguette, earthy hops and honeysuckle.


And now it is time…

Don’t hurry. Drink deeply.

Slightly sweet, somewhat malty, the honey nut flavour sparkles on the tip of your tongue, and slides into your mouth where tart citrus flavours and warm caramel bitterness builds quickly before slipping down your throat full of rich body, thoroughly refreshing…

And … the aftertaste… the sharp, distinct bitterness overlapping with caramelised sweetness lingers and develops on your palate.

Who could resist another tingle tongued deeply gratifying swirl, savour and swallow when the first was so superb?

Pilsner Urquell – the pure pilsner from Pilsen.

Pilsner Urquell has a deep straw colour, a nice head that doesn’t quite last and a medium fizz. It smells rather hoppy, sweet floral scents and distinct Saaz hops. The flavour starts with and intense burst of flavour and fizz; flowers, fruits and biscuit. which quickly is replaced by a sharp pleasant bitterness which lingers, enticing you to have another sip. This one goes down easy and you are constantly reaching for another sip. a good session beer.
