I was talking to my friend the other day about Prague. She had just visited for the first time and tried their pilsner. I visited nine months ago and I can still taste it. As we talked, we waxed poetic about its intoxicating flavor. Vanilla bean. Nutmeg. Creamy and smooth. Dessert.
I never ordered pilsner before because I never knew it could taste like that! (I’m more of a champagne/margarita/sauvignon blanc girl.) I knew the Czech Republic invented pilsner, but I didn’t think that was a very remarkable fact until I tasted their creation.
It was one of those days where the weather changed every half hour from blustery to sunny, from cloudy to rainy. As a drizzle became a deluge, we ducked into a little pub–a spot recommended by a local. Two pilsners later and I was ruined. I’ll always remember that taste.
