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.

good pilsner from its birth place. classic pilsner taste, very hoppy, little skunky after taste bu the clean crisp taste comes from a very well balanced beer. good stuff.

Lubiere (12765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2005
Golden pils with thin white head. Grassy grainy malt aroma with nice crisp hops. Saaz hops come out of the crisp chalky malt, nicely balanced. Medium bodied. Classic.

Hyom a bottle - Why does everybody else rate this beer ungodly high? Look, folks, it’s a Pilsner, a hopped up version of the Anerican Standard brew. Sure, it’s way better than ,say, Bud, but it’s not a personal favorite.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2005 660ml bottle. Mild hoppy, yeasty aroma. Average size white head which didn’t last too long. Clear yellow/golden colour. Moderate bitterness, slightly acidic flavour with a surprisingly long bitter and slightly dry finish. A historically important beer, just not one of my favourite styles.

A light aroma a crisp golden color. Has a nice white head. Nicely hopped but could use a bit more malt balance. Has a nice mouthfeel.

Bottle. This is good but a bit skunky’er than I expected. I did not pour this in a glass so not sure how the aroma or head was but it was a smotth sippin beer that went well with smores.

Served from a 330 ml bottle into a 1500 ml. glass. Sparkling, golden pilsner whose slightly bitter taste, in addition to this quality puts it ahead of most other beers of it’s type. Leaves a nice hoppy aftertaste which also helps a lot. Overall, nowhere near as good as a lot of people here have made out but, it’s better than most such beers.

blankboy (7172) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2005
Bottle. Pours a sparkling gold with an average size white head. The aroma: skunk, skunk, skunk. Stupid green bottles, when will they learn? After the skunkiness subsided a bit I could smell some grainy malt, yeast and a tiny touch of hops. The flavour was dissapointing, it’s too malty, too bitter, the palate is harsh and the aftertaste is quite unpleasant. Not sure why this is rated so high? Must be much better on tap. This should be much smoother than it is. Better than some of the macros but I certainly won’t be getting it again.
