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.

Light malty aroma with some citrus. Appearence is wonderfull, fully lasting creamy head. Heavy bitter flavour, with average duration. Soft carbonated.

From a 12 oz. bottle Pours out sparkling gold with little head. Lots of carbonation. Looks great. Smells of hops and not much else. No malt smell save a bit a fresh hay smell. Bitter taste of hops. Dry. Hops overpower any malt taste completely. Light to medium body. Good taste but I like a bit of malt taste to my pilsner. Taste is nice but it all comes from the hops. Little aftertaste. A good pilsner but not as good as I remember it from a few years back.

This is a pretty good pilsner, but too light for me. I gotta say its pretty good if you are limited to the local grocery store. One of the best on the "common" shelves.

Juelze (1144) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Bottle. Pours a dark yellowish color with decent head. Smells of grass and malt, a bit skunky but could be do to the age of the bottle and it being at World Market near flourescent lights. Tastes of malt with a bit of floral hop flavor and then inter-mixes spiciness and bitterness. Light and highly carbonated this would be a good lawnmower beeer.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2005
Pours a beautiful golden color with a half inch white head. Aroma was light malts and floral hops. Flavor was malty but some upfront sweetness was present. It is carbonated well and is another good beer for a warm summer day. Quite drinkable and delicious.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - MAY 1, 2005
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.

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.
