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.

An iconic beer (I know because I have drunk it fresh in Prague) but the long trip to Australia definitely takes the edge off the Saaz dry hop bitterness and it is marked down accordingly. (330ml bottle, exp. 19/3/16).

JBPortland (1368) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 15, 2016
12oz bottle pours crystal clear amber with small head. Nose is grainy corn, apple, cracker, light grass. Taste is bitter, dry, toast, cracker, cornbread, light apple and orangey malt. Finishes bitter, corn, grain. A bit sticky and not quite as snappy as I like my pilsners.

I have long avoided this beer in my hometown. I know it wont be fresh, so why bother right? A lot of people seem to be enamored by this one, so when I saw it on the shelf while in Europe I thought it would likely be quite a bit more fresh. After a few bottles, I like it well enough. Light and drinkable. Nothing to get overly excited about, but if its fresh I am not going to pass on it. This is what BMC should aspire to taste like.

Im a beer snob. I prefer high gravity beers, particularly imperial stouts and porters and Belgian tripels. But when I want an every day beer, this is my choice. Enough said.

Jakkolwiek nowofalowe piwa z upływem czasu zrobiły ze mnie napuszonego piwnego lorda, w przypadku Pilsnera nie mogę ocenić niżej. Wychowałem się na tym piwie i dopki z 5-6 lat temu nie sprbowałem angielskich ejlw z Carrefoura, Pilsner Urquell był dla mnie piwem numer jeden. Może jakaś tam Czerna Hora czy Bernard orbitowały wokl tego pierwszego miejsca. Dla mnie wciąż klasyka.

16.08.16 Data ważności, kupiony oczywiście w biedronce. Piana w miarę niska, znika dosyć szybko po nalaniu. Piękny, złocisty i klarowny kolor (może nawet bursztynowy). Jest dobry lacing. W zapachu słd, lekko wyczuwalny zapach chmielu. W smaku głwnie chmielowy i gorzki, nie wyłania się nic więcej. Na podniebieniu zostaje lekka goryczka, ale nie jest ona zbyt wysoka - pozwala się cieszyć na spokojnie kolejnym łykiem piwa. Ot, typowy czeski pilsner. Pozycja obowiązkowa, nawet dla osb mieszkających z dala od wszelkich sklepw piwnych.
