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.

Crisp and clean. Not much nose to speak of. When cold it is actually very refreshing, but so is an ice cold glass of water. A great chugging beer.

(on bottle)Being this my 100th rating, I´ve fallen upon the first "exotic" beer I ever had. The pilsner the other ones look up to and so on and so forth. So tasting it again, is it that good? Well, it has a nice fresh/grassy sent and a golden color to look at. What hits me the most is, that so many "lower" pilsners, allways has too much carbonation and too many hops. This one is round and good, fine balance. Good for a warm day of harvesting hay or something.

This beer seems to be a hit or miss. I’ve had a few that were really bad, sort of skunky tasting. But, for the most part, the batches seem to be of good quality. When you get a good batch of this beer is tastes so refreshing. It’s not a heavy beer, but has good flavor, a nice balance, nice fruity and slightly bitter finish. If it weren’t for the bad bottles I’ve tasted, this beer would rate even higher.

no head with this one; it has a slightly skunked aroma, some slight flowery/herbalness; smooth, maltiness up front with a slight dry ending that slightly metallic and a nice floral bitter balance great on a hot day like today; a bit flat on the palate; I’d love to try this on on tap, or side by side w/a fresh Budvar. very nice, but I know can be so much better

The initial aroma is of straw then a little bit of hops. The colour is burnished with gold with a solid white head after pouring from the can. The taste is pretty good bits of malt and straw and nice hit of bitterness on the finish. A great thirst quencher.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2004
Bottle. Thick frothy white head that fades to a bubble film. Nose is strong of hops and skunk. Decent bitter bite. Notes of malt, hops, a little spice and sweet. Finishes very clean without the usual pilsner aftertaste. Not bad at all. This beer is a little more complex in taste than I thought that it would be.

otaku (5) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2004 does not count
Nice golden "classic" pilser appearance. High foamy white head that dissipates rather quickly. Not very lacy, it seems to leave an oily-like residue in the glass. The only thing I could smell in this brew was a grassy/grainy type aroma. The taste was a little more impressive, with a hint of lemon added to the grass, grain, and slight malty hoppiness. I enjoyed the extremely dry finish of this brew, as I found it quite odd. Easy beer to drink. Not a bad brew.
