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.

On Tap. Golden pilsner. Foamy head. Slight bitterness. The bottle is always skunked so its better to have it on tap. OK.

A quality pilsener when on tap. Pretty hoppy nose and flavor. Medium body dry and bitter finish. Beware the green bottle though.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2003
Golden color with medium white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy but not as strong as expected.Taste is of the classic pilsner. Smooth crisp hoppy taste with a little bitterness in the finish.

Had it in a bottle. It had a hoppy aroma. Crisp and clean. The hop flavor lingers. Good beer. Pleasant.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 2, 2003
On tap, golden with average white head. Has a nice hop aroma, just a tad on the skunk side, but this seemed to be fresh enough. Had somewhat of a sweet malt character. Very drinkable, good pilsener now complete with a huge marketing blitz in the US. I'd take Budvar over this though.

Bottle. Hoppy aroma. Malty flavor with a good hop bite. Hop flavor lingers. Good lawnmower beer.

VAYankee (334) - Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2003
Clear light golden color with a foamy white head. Smells like a pilsner should - crisp aroma of light floral hops. Tastes slightly sweet and refreshing. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and slightly metallic . A solid offering of this style - but I have come to prefer more robust styles than pilsener.

andershn (90) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2003
Draught, 0.5 L glass. Poured with far too much carbondioxide which makes the head disappear much too fast. Also has a bad influence on the mouthfeel. Improves considerably after some time in the glass, however should rerate bottled version.

jtw (1124) - farmington, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2003
crystal clear (i can read through it!) straw color with a thin spongy head. lots of bubbles, and a balanced, floral aroma (saaz maybe?). a semi-sweet taste with good mouthfeel and a solid body, and a slightly bitter finish/aftertaste (not a bad thing, though). nothing too complex here, but could definitely be a session beer. very clean, overall not bad!

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 27, 2003
quite mediocre, nothing too exciting, thin head, medium carbonation, and the nose was typical of that of a pilsner. For a while pilsner was my favorite style, but anymore I just cant get into them. Easily drinkable with a nice aftertaste, somewhat sweet but slightly hoppy, maybe. quite refreshing.
