Pilsner Urquell Nefiltrovaný (unfiltered) is available on the Plzensky Prazdroj tour and at Na Parkanu in Plzen. A limited number of kegs were exported to Sweden and Finland for special events. Though the beer is not kvasnicovy (yeast beer), as there is no wort or young yeast added, it is unpasteurized and unfiltered.
Note that this is not the same as the more widespread tankovná (tank beer) or the unpasteurized (filtered) version, both of which are found throughout Prague and Czech Republic. all of these other versions should be reviewed under the regular Pilsner Urquell entry. Additionally, the 170 year Anniversary flip-top bottles should be reviewed under the regular Pilsner Urquell entry.

Pretty much as boring as the regular urquell, that means it works when in emergency situations, but not otherwise.

Es nuestra pilsner favorita. On tap en OMA bistró. Dorada con una abundante corona blanca. Notas de caramelo, ligera, chispeante y refrescante. Carbonatación media y amargor ligero. La pilsner ideal.

Softly hazed and golden, with a head of tightly packed white. Corn, biscuits, honey and crackers on the malt side of the nose -- a lot of malty complexity. The hops are soft here, lending an herbal, minty twang to the proceedings. Compared to the standard draft and bottled versions, it’s got a lot more malt character -- again the rich melanoidins of crackers and honey. The barley is balanced perfectly by tea-like hops. A lot of complexity in this little old Pilsner.

backdaft (273) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2015
On tap @WOB-Appleton. Seriously lucky to try this. Pours a hazy orange/gold in color. Huge, frothy, white head leaves plenty of lacing all the way down. Aromas of grain, malt, and grassy hops. Taste is well balanced between bready malts, sweet grains, and grassy hops. Light to medium sweet, with some perceived bitterness. Very smooth and incredibly drinkable.

Complimentary sponsor draught pour@BKL ’15 - FR. Had CZ-based people not already introduced me to unfiltered Bohemian pilsner goodness like Kout, this would have opened the BKL with a revelation that Urquell, traditional representative of CZ pilsners, can have actual malt character: Rich malts, textured like sawdust and seasalt, assaulting the palate with a Saaz-aided bite. Peach blossom and flowery-herbal nose, while being somewhat rough on first sip: grainy, macropored artisanal bread, some pepper. Did not taste in optima forma and still this was a memorable enough, malt-characteristic opener to the following three-day beer olympics.

mithe (1080) - Opava & Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 1, 2015
(tap 0,5l @ U2P (Brno))
Aroma: Malty, hops.
Appearance: Hazy golden. Medium white head.
Taste: Medium sweet, medium bitter. Light hops. Well balanced.
Palate: Medium body. Creamy texture. Bitter finish.
Overall: Ok, this is The Pilsner Urquell worth its name, not the boring below average stuff that they sell in bottles and in most pubs...
