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.

Nice golden colour with a small white head, I didnt get much of an aroma with this,but it had a good classic pilsner taste.Good everyday beer,I could drink a few of these.

This beer, when poured from the bottle was light golden yellow in color, sparklingly clear and had a medium white creamy head that left good lacing on the edge of the glass. There was a distinct complex malt aroma with spicy, floral hop notes present. The flavor had a lot of initial hop sweetness mixed with an initial hop bitterness. The bitterness was not persistent however and mellowed quickly leaving a nice clean, crisp malt aftertaste.

Great light beer; goes well with pizza. Well carbonated with a nice balance of hops, but kind of a funky, well-watery aftertaste. I could drink a lot of it.

MikeT (76) - Hollis, New Hampshire, USA - APR 28, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2005 Very nice golden color with a citrus aroma. Permiating pilsner maltflavor that smoothly blend to a hop bitter. Head was thick but dissapated to a thin covering that laced nicely. The first of the Pils, and still a very good one.

A very fine pils in my opinion, from the style’s home. Nicely hopped, and well-carbonated. My favorite international of this style.

masedawg (156) - Statesville, North Carolina, USA - APR 26, 2005
Nice looking beer. Rich Golden color. Retains its head nicely, though it is small to start with. Good lacing. Taste is slightly water with nothing that sticks out flavor wise. Honestly I was a little dissapointed.

Bailz316 (228) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2005
UPDATED: APR 30, 2005 Golden beer with fast dissipating white head. Lively beer and medium bodied. Smooth although a bit watery. Herbal aroma. Moderately bitter finish.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - APR 25, 2005
660ml bottle from Sainsburys. Excellent oily hop aroma. Good body. Long dry finish. My best Pilsner so far.

Pours out nice golden color with a head. Nice crisp, clean and hoppy flavor with slightly malt finish. Not bad.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 This beer is always in my refrigerator.Now in .33 ltr brown bottles. The Benchmark Pilsner. Saaz hops are very expensive and this brewer uses plenty!
