Beer for dessert? That's when the sweet, creamy Mlíko pour tastes best. Try it and let us know what you think! pic.twitter.com/ny6o7ezQvG— Pilsner Urquell (@Pilsner_Urquell) November 20, 2019
Gastro Obscura introduces us to a particularly Czech way of pouring beer. Mlíko, which means "milk", is usually served as a pilsner, but the type of beer is less important than the way in which it is poured.
Pouring a beer from a tap is more than just flipping the toggle from off to on. It's an art form and the Czechs have mastered it. The mlíko is poured by opening the tap slightly and letting the beer foam into the mug.
When done properly, it tastes like a creamy "cloud of beer" rather than just airy foam. It's essential to drink this cloudy substance quickly before it settles, so it's not for slow, casual drinking while chatting.
