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.

(Draught at Hilpeä Hauki, production date 31.10.2012, 20121108) The beer poured golden and cloudy. Its head was medium size and white. Aroma had grass, fruitiness, grain and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, grain, fruitiness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Afteraste was hoppy, fruity and bitter. A very balanced and pleasant aroma and taste. Why do they sell the filtered version at all?

Linnet (1209) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2015
This is really the greatest example of the style, crisp, grassy, straw, hay, packed with flavour, hazy golden colour, white head. Exquisite.

Manslow (246) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 27, 2015
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 (285) - 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.

Ascelja (165) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 23, 2015
Tap. Little hazy golden body, medium white head. Aroma of malts and yeast, low intensity. Taste of malts, aftertaste is bitter, hoppy. Little sweet, medium bitterness. An average body and carbonation.
What kind of madness is around here? This is really an average pilsener, I can’t understand this 4,x ratings. Almost every Czech microbrewery beer (and even many of regional commercial) is few steps above this one. This is simple “not bad” category. It looks like people are ratings this trademark, old legend, not the beer (I believe any other with the same taste, aroma, etc. will be around 3).

Rotin (167) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 23, 2015
Draught at the Pivovarská šenkovna, Ústí n. L. (easter edition 2015). Little cloudy, golden colored beer. Aroma of malt, bread, some sweet fruity or flowery tones. Medium bodied, malty flavor, bready, moderately hopped.
Not bad, still it is average beer. Definitely not the best Czech pilsener.

HonusWagner (1692) - Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Has a slight buttery popcorn diacetyl character in the nose. But the flavors are crackery malts with a slightly grassy hoppiness imparting medium bitterness for style; not as tame as more generic pils, less exotic than the Italian exemplars of style. Quite easy to drink and tasty to boot. Meets my expectations and I had to travel all the way to a World of Beer to try it rather than going back to my Grandmother’s homeland.

Pretty much as boring as the regular urquell, that means it works when in emergency situations, but not otherwise.
