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.

Tasted at Na Parkánu. Surprisingly clean (compared to the filtered stuff) with a balance and freshness that is quite unique. Only a few other pale lagers come close.

On cask at the Brewpublic Killer Beer Fest at Baileys Taproom. Colour...mostly clear gold with a corpulent white head. Nose...honey, honeycomb and jasmine flower. Palate...full, frothy, plush and velveteen with cereal, malt powder and fresh water crackers. The mid palate is dry and bright and the finish is incredibly clean. Very nice stuff!

douglas88 (8462) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 22, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2016 On cask at the upper lip. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A big sweet pils malt nose. The flavor is big sweet biscuit, lemons, zesty, pepper. So clean. Very distinct from the regular version, way more flavor, yeasty, more shall I say Belgian in character. But the kicker here is smoothness, insanely smooth and tasty.

Zlotta (2258) - Hagen, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2016
Sampled from tap at ’BierCab’. Clear, golden yellow with a slightly creamy, slowly diminishing, white head. Moderately fruity-grassy, slightly floral aroma of citrus, fresh grass and hints of honey. Slightly sweetish, moderately fruity-grassy, a little floral and a bit grainy taste of sweet malts, fresh grass, some citrus and hints of crackers, followed by a short, moderately bitter, grassy-spicy and slightly yeasty taste. Medium body, very smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very good Lager!
