COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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.

ninecats (330) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2015
Sample at En Öl- & Whiskymässa, Gothenburg, April, 2015. Three 25 litres kegs were brought along from the brewery, this was sampled from the first one opened. Clear deeep golden, soft, thick white four finger foam dissipating slowly leaving lots of lacings. Amazingly present aroma, with a wall of grass, floral, bready, slightly buttery feel. Taste is medium bitter, superb balance with bready, malty hints along with floral and grassy notes, velvet mouthfeel, slight bitterness in the finish. I may be a bit over exaggerated here, but still, this IS brutally tasty with the most delightful mouthfeel and high drinkability.
