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.
Unfiltered Pilsner is available in selected pubs every october. 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.

Hmmm what is there to say about this that have not been said before. Probably nothing. If you stumble upon this rating, you might believe it is an “happy” rating. I rarely give any pilsner any higher rating than 3. But this pilsner make you realize how pilsner really should be. Not all the crap you usually get. Looks lovely with its hazed golden color and two finger thick white head. Solid lacing down the glass. Both aroma and flavor are dominated by a lovely mellow and smooth malt aroma. Lovely fresh bitterness. Medium body and a pleasant creamy soft carbonation. One more please!
[On tap from a wooden barrel at Forest & Brown in Oslo, Norway]

Draught at W.o.R’s. Poured a deep gold under an average white head. Aroma is earthy, straw, hay, honey, grass and a light hint of green grapes. Flavor is the same. Medium to fuller bidy that is almost chewy with average carbonation and a lingering aftertaste.

RasmusOtt (1867) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2015
Tap @ Highlanders Aarhus. Pours like pilsner. Golden with a white head. Aroma of pilsner malts, grassy hops, bread and some weak nutty and honey notes as well. The taste has some bread, some classic saaz hops, pilsner malt and some weak sweeter malts as well. Refreshing but yeah - a good pilsner.

kj1969 (1) - ITALY - OCT 31, 2015 does not count
Draft at Na Parkanu and in various other pivnice round and in Plzen. Quite different from the bottled version, more floral and somewhat yeasty. It seems not to be the same beer. Big white head, hazy pale in color. Not so good as I expected but still a great beer.

Moebbels (619) - FINLAND - OCT 24, 2015
Pours a mildly hazy yellow body with a creamy white head that leaves lacing on the glass. Nice hoppy nose with earthy and somewhat spicy noble hop aromas. Dry taste with a bitter punch and a lingering puckering dryness on the finish. Soft carbonation and light easily drinkable mouthfeel. Excellent balance and smoothness, a bit dank hop aroma.

Erstaunlich, wie malzig dieses Piwo doch daherkommt. Wunderbar süffig, leicht blumig, eine leichte Muffigkeit zum Schluss, daneben aber frisch und mehr als einfach zu trinken. Super.
