Para mi es la reina de la Pils. Refrescante y bien echa, con una espuma blanquecina persistente.

Sometimes, a beer rating comes down to not the brewer, not the brand, but the glass. On my first trip to Prague (2010), I tasted Urquell in Plzen in the caves. That blew away every preconception I had about the beer from trying it occasionally in bottles. On my second trip to Prague just recently (2015), I discovered Lokal, which was said to pour the best Urquell in the city. Went in and immediately loved the unique blend of throwback communist beer hall with trendy-hipster minimalism. Ordered an Urquell after the waitress explained the "3 pours" to us (weird - never saw that in Prague on the other visit). And it’s basically a perfect beer. Not much more to say. Super hoppy compared to modern pils. Beautiful soft and creamy head and mouthfeel. Just. Good. "50% of the responsibility lies with the brewer. The other 50% is up to the barman." Case in point at Lokal in Prague!

Pretty solid as these sorts of lager go. Slightly sweet but not sickly, bitter without tasting like chemicals and not a watery mess in the mouth. Very drinkable.

330 ml bottle into lager glass, bottled on 2/16/2015. Pours fairly crystal clear golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with well balanced pale malt and earthy hop notes; with good strength. A bit too fruity/estery in the aromas, but not too bad. Taste of lemon, cracker, bread, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, bread, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Fairly clean on lager flavors with some slight yeast esters present in the taste. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Moderate dryness. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.4%. Overall this is a very good Czech pilsner style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. If it was cleaner with less fruity esters it definitely would have scored higher; but still a nicely enjoyable offering overall.

The hand of Pilsners is a wonderful beer.
Strong golden color with a white and effervescent foam good training.
The aroma reveals a strong herbal trend with lemongrass notes, cereals, cereal malt, honey, spicy hops, and why not some cookie nuances that bring a certain sweetness.
The taste is peculiar of this classic beer with apparent grains, cereals, honey, lemon grass, corn bread and spices logically all very well hopped a delicious bitterness. The malts are rather complex and merge in an interesting mixture with hop bitterness. A gem.
In a medium body and good carbonation in effervescent granules, dry finish say that brings a creamy texture and crisp closing a thin bitter that always, always ask another sip. Saaz hops blessed !!!
For me the best of all Lager. Incomparable.
