It is called the "model of meter" among beers. All other pilsners are a better or worse attempt to copy the original - the first ever Pilsner Urquell. Its unparalleled exceptionality is guaranteed by the same recipe dating from 1842.

I haven’t had one in a while but I love this beer. Golden colour with a white head. Great saaz hop aroma, with a taste to match. It’s sweet but not too sweet, light malt flavour, light bitterness, and great well balanced hop flavour. It’s light and refreshing. This is how a Pilsner is supposed to taste!

Probably the best beer I’ve ever tried. Thumbs up! It’s rather difficult to find it in my country, which is too bad, but it will definitely be a reason more for me to travel. Needless to say that this beer is famous and the reason for it is justified, it is the perfect, light, opulent and refreshing beverage

Bottle BBE: 24/7/15. Well-chilled. Pours between amber and gold, completely clear, with a moderate white head that dissipates quickly. Head a little patchy. Fresh, sweet, bready aroma with a perceptible, peppery hop character. A prolonged biscuity sweetness is balanced by a medium bitterness. Light-bodied, fizzy, foamy texture and a lasting, classic Pilsner taste. The gold standard in lager.

Reviewing from Pilsen at main square on tap. Medium aroma of oxidized spicy hops. The malt aroma is grainy sweet but also swords oxidation. Wonderful guild color with brilliant clarity and send white head. As with aroma, oxidation muddies the spicy Saaz and Moravian malt flavors. Bitterness is correct but s harsher than a normal pils. Medium body and adequate carbonation with minor astringency. Dry finish with slightly astringent aftertaste. Pasteurization and sloppy packaging seems to ruin one of the best beers in the world.

Lattina da 0,5 l. Dorata, limpida, schiuma bianca non molto fine è poco persistente. Aroma debole di Saaz, malti chiari e citrico. Al palato malti chiari, citrico è bella nota amaricante erbacea sul finale. Corpo leggero, carbonatazione medio-alta.
