We take a step backward in this episode to look a the origin of the species: Pilsner Urquell. Hear Jim and I butcher Czech names all through the episode.
VEGITARIAN ALERT - Guiness is not a vegitarian beer. Or so says the Vegitarian Society that recently released a list of food that was not considered vegitarian safe.
- Pilsner Urquell, the first Pilsner beer, sitting at around 4.40% ABV. Comes in a green bottle with a nice foil label. Have been using the same reciepe since 1842, developed by Josef Groll. Yes, this is the night we butcher Czech names.
- The name "Urquell" even means "Original Source"
- Pretty straight foward ingredient list.
- Taste - Very carbonated, and a little more bitter than you may be used to if you are drinking light beers.
- This is a nationally distributed beer, so you should be able to get it anywhere.
- Other imports that are simlar to this one include Spaten Pilsner from Germany and Budvar/Czechvar from the Czech Republic.
