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.

A quite decent lager, I enjoyed this one on tap at the White Whale bar in Prague, during a trip around the city by a hot afternoon. Very pleasing and refreshing, taste doesn’t change much from other pilsners available in czech republic imo but it does the job pretty well. Cool hops aftertaste, a good bet. Best served cold on tap! APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW!

On tap in prague. Clear golden with medium creamy white head. Aroma is a little buttery, grassy hops, typical helles stuff. Taste is well balanced everything. Hoppy and nice. In the finish the butter kicks in again. Medium body. Smooth mouthfeel. Ok I guess.

lokis333 (352) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JUL 16, 2016
Deep gold color with strong large white foam. Aromas of European hops, light coloured soft malts, grass, herbs and notes of light sweet honey. Palate, full body with smooth thicker texture leaving sweet but dry and crisp hoppy finish. Taste is sweet with developing hoppy bitterness, reminds of soft hop tea, fresh grass, dandelions with light touch of honey at the back. Overall, quite nice as a lager type not watery, sweet grassy/ herbal taste with nice finish. Good one, do recomend.

Pilsner Urquell: a Pilsner from the Czech Republic, the first of it’s kind. Minimal head but pours smoothly when done properly. Aroma of sweet but light malt and very strong nose. Probably the best beer to drink in big mouthfuls as the flavors really sweeps out of the beer. Some may say it’s very similar to a Bud or Miller Light. It does have a very similar taste but is far superior. Great beer if you would want to play Beer Pong and show your great beer knowledge and taste to your friends. As a beer it definitely pairs well with Lays Salt & Vinegar potato chips because it almost has that sour taste of vinegar. A great blend.

From the tap in a pilsner urquell restaurant in Prague. Clear golden with a glorious white head. Lemon, hay, apples on the nose. Delicious light maltiness on the palate. Perfect accompaniment to my pilsner goulash.

A 500ml can canned on 2nd February 2016 and poured into a Riedel weizen glass. It poured an extremely clear golden colour with a three finger white head that had decent retention and left sparse spotty lacing. Grassy and honey aromas with a hint of grain and floral. Taste was sweet honey and grain with some biscuit, toast and grass plus a hint of bitterness. Crisp, light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall a nice refreshing easy to drink Pilsner.
