Share This Review

Praga Premium Pils is a Czech Pilsener brewed by První Budějovický Pivovar Samson, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the lager was served in a pilsener glass from a bottle.

Appearance

The lager pours a crystal-clear gold and is topped by an inch-thick cap of puffy white foam that persists briefly. A thin collar and fine surface layer remain behind. Patches of residue cling to the sides of the glass during consumption.

Aroma

Its aroma is dank with a scent of wet grass, herb, and cooked vegetables.

Flavor

The palate begins with a taste of cracker malt and mild grassy hops. Light taste of veggies spiced with peppery hops lingers through the finish. A note of honey flashes on the swallow.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is relatively smooth and lively with a light body and moderately-high carbonation. Finishes slightly dry and astringent.

Overall

Its feel is nice but its appearance could be better. The aroma and palate are mostly fine but its vegetal character could be off-putting to some. The Praga Premium Pils is a mixed bag that rises above the macro pale lager but doesn’t reach the level of better pilseners.
