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.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2007 Re-rate 6/25/07: Sweet up front, crisp and refreshing. Can drink this all day long with a smile. A classic pils. This gold standard has a nice slight bitter bite at the finish. Green bottles scare me, but smelled nice and fresh. Nothin like a pils on a hot day.

Hmmm, an interesting beer. Quite aromatic and surprisingly rich in colour. Quite a different and quite sharp and almost sweet just a little twinge of metal. I like this beer but i can sense some bad headaches the next day after a night on it due to the richness of this beer. It starts quite malty and full and fishes dry, hoppy and bitter. A great beer to start with.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2003 The 'original' pilsner. Very hoppy, a bit metallic with a dark golden colour and a lovely head. cheers

Pours golden yellow with some white head that is gone in moments. Malt nose, some muskiness (damn green bottle) though not enough to be a bad thing. Sweet flavors welcome you and then it quickly finishes bitter. Palate is smooth. Not too bad.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2004 White head, golden colour. Start is sweet with a soft and smooth palate followed by a little salt&pepper-bitter finish. A very nice pilsener.

it was much better in the bottle than from the glass. in the glass, it had a funky smell and a metallic aftertaste. weird. anyway, nice golden color. in the bottle, i smelled a hint of cinammon. slightly bitter but it goes down smooth.

Very refreshing beer! Never had the opportunity to try on tap, nonetheless good bottled beer. Not as skunky as heineken,light yellow and sligthly floral aroma. No strong aftertaste.

Not too bad for a pilsner. A nice, refreshing beer. Possibly re-rate after I find it on tap.
