FYI this beer is possible to get from bars other than the brewery bar. I got it from tap at The Rover, Göteborg.
Grass, earth, yeast, bread, herbs, flowers. Balanced beer, medium bitter and medium sweet.

Straight from the barrel (or at least that’s what it’s made to look like) during the brewery tour. Much more enjoyable than the ordinary version (though the ambience certainly played a role), I wish this was more widely sold as I’d drink more Pilsner Urquell if it was! (Different rating format as I have no proper tasting notes)

8/VII/15 - on tap @ the beer museum (Plzen) - BB: n/a (2015-882) Thanks to Motelpogo for the beer and food!
Bit hazy orange to deep blond beer, huge creamy off-white head, very stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: yeast (top fermenting, very specific smell), brewery, wort, little metallic. MF: soft carbon, full body, smooth creamy texture. Taste: bit sweet, malty touch, fruity notes, soft bitterness, citrus. Aftertaste: bit fruity, nice bitter hops, grassy, very creamy and smooth finish. It’s really amazing how much better this beer is, unfiltered and straight from tap! So much fuller, richer, creamier, tastier. Lovely beer and should be again Czech’s number 1 beer, totally deserved! (when writing this, the n°1 beer is Matuska Stout with 18 ratings)

You’ll have to get this only in Plzen CZ: Look; mafioso off white tight standing head, hazy strawy gold-golden body, crocheted small curtains everywhere inside the mug.
Aroma; bread, straw, hops, grains, malts - clean straightforward perfect start. Taste; mafioso malts, leafy hops, bread, butter, meadow spices, sweet butterscotch. Finishes softly blended 2/3 malts and 1/3 fine fresh hops, OMG !. Feels well balanced, clean, just a little oily, but also the tiny oil contains the finest malts. Overall probably the best beer ever. Best pils in the world, pitty that there’s never any bottled version. [50cl in a clear mug, apx4.4%abv, T@Šenk Na Parkanu, T@Ferie2015]

Kufel w Browarze w Pilznie. Kolor złoty, klarowne, piana średnia stoi długo. Aromat słodowy, chmielowy, lekko owocowy. Smak słodowo-chmielowy aromatyczny chleb.Średnio nagazowane. Nie mogłem opuścic piwnic w browarze. Bardzo dobry pilsner, wręcz kultowy.
