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.

dynamiteninja (1827) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Gravity cask on the brewery tour, Pilsen. Large tight white head. Cloudy yellow gold amber body. On the nose is as follows. Yeast, dough, grass, hops, caramel, pale malt, cheddar, blue cheese and the Saaz hop. Tangerines, red fruits and Rich Tea biscuit. Taste is sweet, with some alkaline flavour from the yeast. Very dry finish. Creamy mouth feel. Light carbonation. Long finish. The benchmark for pilsner, a world leading beer with great depth.

BlackHaddock (6404) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2016
9th July 2016: on-tap in BierCaB Barcelona with the RBESG guys. Very surprised to find I have never rated this having been to Prague twice on beer centric trips. Anyway pleased to find it in Barcelona. Cloudy, dull golden pour with a large white head on top. Aroma was both slightly malty and grassy, the taste was led by light molasses with some grass and herbal traces in a yeasty environment.

Maakun (4103) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2016
Tap at BierCaB in Barcelona. I got a bit overexcited when I saw this on their tap menu but that was after a few drinks :-). Served in a small version of a typical beer mug. Hazy golden with huge white head. Very grassy, light caramel, pils malts, herbal hops. Just lots of nice herbal notes with soft yeast and pilsmalts. Medium bitter and over light sweet. Over light bodied. Nice!
