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.

mrjez (322) - Osaka, JAPAN - APR 20, 2016
Drunk countless times, this time from can. Noticeable aroma of grassy hop, malt, light hay. Has an oily feel, tingly peppery middle carrying a light citrus with the grassy notes and earthy malt flavour. Great feel on a warm day, crisp and dry, lingering doughy notes. Harkens back to lager sessions of my youth, in a great way. A light refreshing Pilsner.

HPDalen (113) - - APR 16, 2016
Very yeasty aroma like dough. Pours golden with a thin, white head. Nicely balanced bitter and sweet flavours. Light bodied, thin and a bit lively. The best mainstream beer.

Popoff91 (49) - Oregon, USA - APR 13, 2016
UPDATED: APR 19, 2016 11.2-ounce bottles. It has a sort of skunky aroma, but it has a rich flavor that has little bitterness. I tend to prefer drinks that have a little more abv but this excellent beer has gotten me to try out more pilsners.

The pilsner by which all others are judged. The OG of the Pilsner world as it were. Purposefully skunky in aroma the hops jump right out at you. The mouthfeel is divine. It dangles at the edges of your palate tempting you to drink more.

NoRemorse86 (48) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 5, 2016
No niestety trafiłem chyba na złą warkę. Aromat bardzo nieprzyjemny, maślany, trochę mokrego kartonu. Piana po chwili zerowa. Niedobre w smaku. Wyraźny diacetyl, goryczka jest w porządku, ale wady nie pozwalają nią się cieszyć.

Clear golden, not very lasting medium sized white head. Aroma of malts and cereal. Rich malty taste with some bitterness. Medium carbonation. Good pilsner.

Jow (3195) - New York, USA - APR 2, 2016
Bottle at home quick super market grab, sometimes the beers I haven’t rated surprise me. Dusty orange pour small head. Nose is hoppy and malts. Tastes of bitter hops, grassy, honey, some malts. Bitter and decent flavors. Nice carbonation.
