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.

Hazy golden body, whtie head. Aroma has Frisky malt, fresh and soft notes. Flavour is well balanced between noble hops and grainy maltiness. Bitterness in aftertaste. Some residual sweetness. Just great.

Torrefacto (916) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 26, 2014
Caoba claro y tupido con espuma blanca algo irregular. Aromas de fruta madura, azúcar moreno, florales y cereal. Cuerpo medio, textura maltosa, inicio ligeramente dulce de la malta, que recuerda por momentos a la manzana roja, un toque floral que acaba en un amargor seco moderado. Muy rica.

01.11.2014, tap @ Cardinal:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry grainy, hay, dried grain, popcorn, caramel, weeds, light malts, grass. Taste is dry and crisp, hay, light malts, paper, wet grain, minerals. Medium to longlasting bitterness, dry slightly harsh mouthfeel. Fair enough.

On tap at Cardinal. It pours a lightly hazy unclear body under a dense two finger white head. Nice curtains. Light piney nose, with grass and and hay, some generic fruit notes and resins. It has a nice, subtle bitterness lurking in the back, with resins, pine cones and fruityness up front. It’s very soft and smooth on the palate, dry and pleasantly carbonated, with a pleasant bitterness in the end. Damn, this is something different from the regular industrial pilsners. I’m not blown away, but it’s sure nice. 141101

Keg at Cafe Sara, october 17th 2014. Clear golden body with a huge white head. Aroma of noble hops, herbs, light fruits, malt. Mild toasty taste with earth, flowers, grass. Thick grainy and flowery finish, lasting bitterness. Maybe not as good as it’s hype, but definately one I’m happy to have had the chance to taste!

Fra fat pĺ Cardinal, Mandag i annen: endelig fĺr vi smake denne klassikeren, hurra for Cardinal! Lett uklar gylden med fint hvitt skum. Herlig frisk aroma, smak og ettersmak, alt med en elegant bitterhet (Saaz/Zatek er nćrliggende ĺ anta). Slik skal en pilsner smake! En fornřyelse ĺ la denne renne over ganen, og der var flere enn meg som tok seg en pĺfyll.

From the cask in the cellar at the brewery. Hazy golden with little white head. Aroma of cereals, bread, biscuit. Taste is similar, bready yeast, cereals, grain. Very soft carbonation, crisp and refreshing. Decent
