COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a thin golden color with an accompanying thin head. Aromas of sazz hops and a hint of malts. Tastes of a nice creamy bitter hopness that carries through to the finish with a slight maltiness. Like Miller Lite with more of a backbone.

Sharp aroma to the golden beer from way back. This crisp refreshing green bottled beer is the king of the euro style pilsner’s. A must try.

Poured a deep straw yellow. Wiff of corn on the nose and backed up by corn in the mouth. Somewhat sweetish but in a unique way. Smooth too, kinda grows on me. Whatever that corn smell was, I didn’t dig it thou.

Probably the best of the Pilsner’s out of Czech in my opinion. A very distinct taste as far as the biiterness.

Golden with mostly receding head. Aroma of saaz. Bready malt taste. Moderately bitter finish. Nice beer, albeit simple. I enjoyed it.

Padron4KM (792) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2005
Pint Bottle.
Pours out clear golden, with a egg shell white head that lingers for a while, and leaves patchy lacing.
Aroma is mostly bready with some floral hops.
Flavor is slightly malty, slightly spicy, a little honey. nice bitter finish.

Pint Bottle: Pours a nice fizzy white head which diminishes after a while. The lacing is minimal, if any. I think the most intrigueing quality about this brew is its aroma. At the beginning and thrroughout I noticed weed and skunk smells (in a good way, if there is such a thing). My wife and I decided to coin a term to describe this that seemed fitting: skunkweed. Later, I also picked up on sweet hints of clover honey. This classic is smooth and soft and clearly stands out from most pilseners.

Good stuff! Very rich, almost fresh bread flavor to it, complemented by just the right mix and right amount of hops. Easily one of the better of the more readily available imports.

Solid pilsner. Won’t overwhelm you. Good to have during a hockey game for some reason. Will definitely drink again.

Reaqlly enjoyed this. Stunning golden colour and a complex, interesting taste and finish. Well above the average.
