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.

Decent pilsner,but not a big fan of the style. At least I got the original. Number 100 baby.

Not a lot I can add about this that hasn't been said. I love the nice bitter finish to it. Looks great in a glass, but I can't get used to the nose.

The prototype for the pilsner. Has lost some of its edge but still excells. Beautiful golden amber color and nice head. Mild spicy aroma. Dry and bitter but so refreshing. Still one of the best.

Choos (658) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2003
Aroma was lacking, lightly hoppy and maybe very mildly Saaz spicy. Light green bottle so I got mine from the back of the fridge, poured a very golden yellow. Mildly spicy with a hint of malt.

Hey it is about time that a brewery made liquid skunk in a bottle! What the hell is this stuff anyway, this was by far the worst pilsner that I have ever tasted! I am not sure what everyone else was drinking, but this was nothing like the bottle said it was, nor was it like what the other ratebeerians described either. Bottom line this was just pure czech swill. I am sorry but nothing was good about this one.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 2, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2003 Floral-spicy nose. Golden body with ample carbonation, billowing white head. This beer is very lightly-flavored, with soft sweetness complimented by spicy hops. Slight papery aftertaste.

I have not had this beer in the US, but when I was in the Czech Republic, it was all I drank, and is apparently the favorite among the locals there. It has a very strong hops flavor, and is quite crisp. Just a hint of sweetness... maybe honey. Gorgeous when poured out in a glass. Good bitter flavor overall.

Nice middle of the road pils.Some almost clean saaz character with a touch of honey.This was sampled from a fresh enclosed 12-pk.

One of the darkest Pilseneres I have seen. Very, very hoppy, too hoppy for my taste actually. Otherwise nice brew.
