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.

Nefiltrovany Pilsner Urquell is a billion times better than the bottle. It really is unbelievable if you are having it on tank (tankova) in Prague. There is a growing number of establishments that pour it straight from the polystyrene bags through the tap to your glass. It doesn’t get better than Pilsner from the tank in Prague 6.

Maakun (3389) - 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!

hrabren (770) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 11, 2016
On tap Na parkánu, Pilsen, Czech Republic. Hazy golden with creamy big white head, leaving lacing. Malty aroma, very light taste. Malty sweetness, but less aroma then the filtered version. They are alike, but this one’s not better. I don’t get it. Going to the brewery tomorrow to ask them what’s the big deal.
