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 the brewery down in the cellar of Urquell. The aroma is hoppy with notes of malt. Nice head. The flavor is hoppy too, but with a nice malty profile too it ends with a nice bitterness. Never have I had a beer in such an exciting environment!

Super grainy aroma. Lovely hazy pale orange. Such raw fresh grains, it’s magical on the nose. I could swim in this. Alas it’s a bit duller in the mouth - lightly bready grains. Finish is pleasantly hopped, just a little bit of dry crisp spiciness. Super drinkable. Smooth palate, like a good hazy unfiltered lager should be. Well, this is a good beer to help you shed your prejudices - who cares if this is SABMiller, this is a beautiful lager.

Marduk (4500) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 9, 2015
Little tun @Olutexpo 2015. Clear golden color. Huge size, thick white head, stays. Not much of aroma. Tiny bit of yeast and wheat. Nice malty body with moderately spicy hops. Nice hoppy bitterness. Everything is in balance. Very drinkable.

Habanero (3430) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2015
Tap. Slightly hazy golden with an average white head. Aroma of grassy hops, hay, grain and caramel notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and nice bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and average carbonation. A very nice Pils indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Lightly hazy, dark golden color with a medium white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of toast, honey, grassy hops. Taste of dough, earth, toffee, biting grassy hop finish.

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!

dmac (4956) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2015
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 (1756) - 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.

Draught at Black Door. Hazy light amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, hops, biscuit, malts, a bit of earthy notes and grass. Bitter finish with citrus, hops, toast and malts. Very nice czech pilsner.
