Pilsner Urquell (Plzensky Prazdroj, a. s.) 4/5

Aroma is grassy and fresh, slightly metallic. Pours a deep straw color with hardly any head retention. Strong carbonation and well-hopped taste with a clean mouthfeel. Very little malts present, perhaps a slight woody taste on the finish. Quite possibly the epitome of the style. A perfect “gateway beer” to give to a friend who’s only experienced adjunct lagers (i.e. cheap, mass-produced beer that substitutes rice or corn for barley). Only 4.4% ABV, so you can have a few of these and hardly notice. The almost-skunky smell and the weak alcohol content are the only things keeping this from being a 5/5 beer.
