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.

On tap during SF beer week 2014 at a bar in SF that I can’t remember. It pours a gold color with only a slight haze and a huge off white head. The aroma is very bready with light flowery, spicy hops. The full, velvety texture hits me first with the flavors of fresh bread, bread crust and an intense Saaz spicy, floral bouquet. Strong floral bitterness in the finish. The hop character comes through much stronger without the filtration. Awesome stuff.

Tap at the Rover, Gothenburg. Poured a clear straw colour with a thin white head. The aroma is malt, yeast. The flavour is medium bitter with a smooth chewy malt yeast light floral palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Just as good as at the brewery. Really pleased to have tasted this. Thanks Ronny!

Sebilinz (515) - Linz, AUSTRIA - FEB 24, 2014
Tap. Hazy orange body with white head. Aroma is some herbs some grass. Taste is some malts and I always taste some cardboard. Aftertaste is medium bitter. O.K.one but I also don’t get the hype.

Saeglopur (343) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - FEB 23, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2014 Draught at Braukunst Live 2014, Munich. Golden, hazy body, with big, creamy, white head. Aroma of grain, hay, bread, citrus, herbs. Tastes of hay, grass, bread, herbs, some honey like sweet malt. Mothfeel is medium, lively carbonation and it finishes with a dry bitterness and some herbs. Really tasty, definitely much better than the filtered version and surely one of the best Pilsners out there, but still overrated in my opinion.

Had this at Czechpoint in Malmö a couple of years ago, then again at Stockholm beer & Whiskey 2013. It’s a good unfiltered beer and way surpass it’s own filtered twin, still though, don’t get the hype..
