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.

Towey1989 (1894) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2016
Gravity at The Pilsner Urquell Brewery, Plzen. A hazy golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma of bready malts, grain and fresh, spicy, herbal Saaz hops. Taste of bready malts, grain, slight pepper, a little grass, subtle honey and spicy, herbal hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A long, dry, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Can taste all the high quality ingredients used. Suburb crisp bitterness in the finish. Worth the trip.

Acid303 (671) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - MAR 20, 2016
1/2 Pint on tap @Barcelona Beer Festival. Pours transparent golden with big dense white head. Both aroma and taste are fruits, caramel, and the characteristic Pilsner malt touch. Finish is dry with moderate bitterness. Light/medium body, perfect carbonation. Definitely the best Pilsner I’ve had so far.

On tap at Bar Maquila. Waiting for lunch with Pedro & Miguel. More pleasant than the bottled version, without any artificial taste. However, it neither is something specially memorable

Dark yellow color. NIce noble hop aroma with a bit of biscuit. Has a richer flavor than the filtered version. A bit more depth. However, it isn’t going to make pilsner converts. Nice bitterness to balance the smooth light maltiness.

angel77 (2493) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 14, 2016
Cańa en el Lúpulo y en Cimmeria en varias ocasiones 1 a 12 de febrero 2016. Color dorado amarillento algo velado con buena espuma blanca. Aromas y sabores maltosos frescos herbáceos. Ligeros toques citicos y amargo final suave. cuerpo medio algo pastoso y espumoso fácil de beber. Bastante buena y sobre todo comparada con la comercial. Para repetir sin duda.

Un excelente marketing, pero sin embargo no es nada impresionante que siempre recordarás. Eso sí, mejora a su hermana mayor, es muy refrescante y bien equilibrada. Creo q cada vez será más fácil encontrarla.
