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.

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.

pored golden with a thick long lasting white head, aroma of skunkiness, malt, and yeast, the taste is bitter, and malty, not bad just wasnt impressed.

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.

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.

Belgo (154) - Křge, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2005
Bottle. Golden with a fine lasting thick head. Malty aromas with lots of Saaz hops as well. Grainy taste and flowery hop notes. A bit less bitter than I remembered it, but maybe it’s just me who’s had too many IPA’s since I first had this one years ago....? A delicious pilsner.

I admit I’ve never had this on tap, and it comes in green bottles here, so one thing comes to mind, skunk. I would probably enjoy this if it weren’t for the stinky aroma, it pretty much ruined it for me.

mrnutsnbolts (204) - Berkeley, - JUL 20, 2005
Bottle. Golden color with a thin, small white head. Aroma was skunky, hoppy, and grassy. Taste is light with some hops and a bitter end. Leaves a little residue in the mouth, light to medium body. Nice mouth feel.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2005 This was a great Bohemian style pilsner. The Hops to Malt complexity was awesaome. Rich and spicy malt tone. With a great crisp and bitter flavor. A very good beer with a great flavor. Always drink fresh can sit too long at times coming over.

This beer has a golden body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is bitter.
