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.

Golden body. Light hop aroma, with a slight skunkiness. Light saaz flavor, good balance. I think this one wasnt too fresh, so it was a bit skunked.

Best pilsener I've had; take that for what it's worth. Not bad at all, super clean and crisp. Just a touch skunky. Very interesting, if nothing else.

Promises much and delivers most of it. This can be fantastic and can also be rubbish. It is clearly very effected by the draught system used and I have drunk this thinking it was crap and I have also had this marvelling at the complexity and clarity. Still, I am not a lager fan at all but this is one of the best no doubt. Great with fish. This is a real mood beer. Hot day, tight bikini's, scorching sun ... nothing better.

Upon opening, I smelled a certain striped desecrator of flavor on the nose. We all know, however, that drinking beer is about "image," and this "foreign-looking" green bottle is preferred by the trendy and sophisticated swillers of the world, apparently. Luckily, light hops restored their aromatic dominance (although they weren't exactly dominant), and the golden-colored body is flavorful, hitting the tongue with slightly spicy hops upon sipping, and opening to sweet, smooth malt and lemon flavors upon the swallow. From what I've read about this beer, I believe I escaped the brunt of my furred adversary's tail-based attack.

As a pilsner its fine. As a beer it's average.Taste is clean but I thought it was too dry. Not worth the price unless you are a die-hard pilsner fan.

CEZ (397) - Milano, ITALY - JUN 16, 2003
[bottle] The perfect beer glass: clear, shiny golden color, medium carbonation, and a nice, lasting white head. The aroma is herbal and hoppy, but disappointingly faint. Taste is crisp, clean and dry. Light and drinkable without being too thin, and flavourful enough to satisfy your palate with just the perfect amount of Saaz bitterness.

An excellent Pilsner beer. Such a sin it costs as much as it does because I could drink one of these all day long.

I was introduced to this wonderful beer about fifteen years ago and am very pleased to find it growing in popularity. It has become one of my standards.

On Tap- Rich O's New Albany, Indiana. Golden color, nice white fluffy head which dissipates quickly. Light aroma of hops and malt. Goes down well. Crisp, clean, refreshing.
