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.

The mother of all Pils. Pleasant inviting aroma and a golden appearance.Poured with a small head that soon dissapeared.Quite bitter with a smooth sharp aftertaste.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2005
(Draught at U Zlateho Tygra, Prague) Golden coloured, thick white diminishing head. Slight citric, hoppy nose. flavour from toffee with an acidic hoppiness. Watery, light bodied, low bitterness but still... absolutely wonderful.

johnyvt (158) - West Hollywood, California, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Distinctive czech hop smell. Very light gold pour with an average white head. Very flowery start with a dry, hoppy finish. Earthy aftertaste. A decent pilsner, but I’m going to chose Victory’s Prima Pils over this everytime.

Tubbfan (147) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Skunky smell out of the bottle. Little head poured out of the bottle. Smooth, drinkable flavor when I got past the aroma.

Bottle - aroma is slight malt and slight skunk. Looked like Budweiser. Very little head and it was quickly gone. Flavor was like the aroma. Malt and skunk. I’m hoping that this is just an old bottle. May have to try again. I’m certain that this beer is better than this sample.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Crystal goldenrod pour with a tall and airy white head (but little retention or lacing). Hoppy, bright and floral nose. Crisp citrus and bitter hoppy flavor with a very dry finish. If you like pilsners, you can’t go wrong with this one but don’t ask it to be more than it is.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Nicely golden with a decent head. Fantastic malty AND flowery nose. Very soft mouthfeel in spite of the very pronounced hoppiness - although it apperently has diminished in recent years. A very classic nice pilsener. THE pilsener...

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2008 I finally got a fresh bottle and had to re-rate this beer. Man what a difference. A fresh bottle is truely a perfect example of what a pilsner should be. Refreshing, crisp, and a good bite without a bad or strong aftertaste.

darkko (99) - Kingsport, Tennessee, USA - MAY 11, 2005
Skunky aroma when first opened.Nice deep head, but dissipates quickly with no lacing. Color is a beautiful golden color. Smooth taste with a small amount of bitterness in the finish. Good for a pilsner.

jclzony (25) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 11, 2005
Pours with a nice golden hue and with a correct proportion of foam. Light malty taste with subtle dry hops incorporation. This is my favorite pilsner thus far even though it originates from a large brewery.
