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.

Pleased to find this one at the White Horse, Soho. From an oak barrel, into a glass tankard. Drunk outside in the sunny streets of soho. Hazy orange, big foamy white head, thin lacing. Aroma - malty, yeast, slightly sour and vegetal, some wheaty character. Body is medium, a bit foamy, light carbonation. Taste - very bready - lots of wholemeal bread, watery citrus, very slight esters, dental rinse, lightly astringent (maybe a touch of oak adds to this impression), bit of salt - definitely leans towards savoury rather than sweet. Long, softly bitter finish. This is a good beer, but I was expecting something a bit better.

pours a clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma of grain, malt, and yeast. Taste of solid balanced grain and malt, nice dry crisp light hops, with yeast. This a solid Pilsner, refreshing and easy drinking, a great example of the style

No té res a veure amb la Urquell normal, és molt més aromŕtica i gustosa. No tiene nada que ver con la Urquell normal, es mucho mas aromática y sabrosa.

Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid pils, crisp, clean, refreshing.

From notes. On tap at Roman’s. Poured lightly cloudy golden with a thick, well-retained white head. The aroma picked up chewy, crisp bready notes with fresh lemon zest accents.. very well presented. The flavor found similar.. tasty bread and very light nutty notes at the core with crisp lemon and light earthy hoppage around.. clean, tasty finish. Light-medium bodied, but fairly filling on the palate.. flowed very well.. this was excellent!

From cask @ the cellars of the old brewery at Plzensky Prazdroj, Plzen. An epic tick; this one embodies the heart of lager beer and the Czech pilsner tradition! :-) Hazy, near-cloudy light orange body, large, long-lasting creamy white head. Aroma is pale malts, mild diacetyl, fresh yeasty notes, grains and hints of dry grass and straw. Taste is pale malts, fresh yeast, grains and soft hop notes that intensify into dry, grassy bitterness in the finish. Creamy, soft palate, soft to medium carbonation. Just a great pilsner, and a milestone for me. Na zdravi! :-)

Cask @ White Horse (London). Unfiltered and unpasteurized version. Almost clear golden with a frothy white head and intense lacing. Aroma is of fresh gress, Saaz hops, floral notes and light breadied malt. Taste is of wet cereals, grass, breadied malt, light spiciness (from Saaz hops?) and light herbal bitterness. Light/medium body. Soft carbonation. Almost creamy/chewy mouthfeel. Fresh. This beer is amazingly drinkable (I drank 750 ml in half an hour) and thirst quenching (hmmm maybe not the much, I would have taken more!). What is great about this beer is every component of the aroma and taste are so fresh (fresh grass, fresh bread, fresh floral notes, etc.). Really tasty for such and low abv and highly drinkable beer. Loved it!
