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.

Blech. I’m hoping that I just caught a light-spoiled specimen here... but I won’t drink this again until I find it on tap. Very skunky aroma, not unlike a shoe... but points were given b/c I could detect some Saaz hops in there. Clear bright-golden pour with light off-white head. Unpleasant finish was remniscent of the aroma. Well-carbonated. The whole experience was unpleasant, but it got even worse when it warmed a bit.

Poured a golden color with a smallish white head. Aroma was a bit skunky with some bread and a small amount of hops.. Flavor was a bit of sweet malt and some light hops and a nice bitter finish.. Light mouthfeel.. Good summertime brew.

Normally I get the "light struck" skunky bottles. I have had the occassion to taste on tap however. Nice spicy hop aroma, nothing smells quite like a Saaz hop. Very nice rich golden yellow color. A little on the bitter side for a Pilsner, but since they were the first, you must give some leeway. Overall Highly recommend on tap. Be very suspect of the green bottle sitting on the shelf...

Pours a thin golden color with an accompanying thin head. Aromas of sazz hops and a hint of malts. Tastes of a nice creamy bitter hopness that carries through to the finish with a slight maltiness. Like Miller Lite with more of a backbone.

Sharp aroma to the golden beer from way back. This crisp refreshing green bottled beer is the king of the euro style pilsner’s. A must try.

Poured a deep straw yellow. Wiff of corn on the nose and backed up by corn in the mouth. Somewhat sweetish but in a unique way. Smooth too, kinda grows on me. Whatever that corn smell was, I didn’t dig it thou.

Probably the best of the Pilsner’s out of Czech in my opinion. A very distinct taste as far as the biiterness.

Golden with mostly receding head. Aroma of saaz. Bready malt taste. Moderately bitter finish. Nice beer, albeit simple. I enjoyed it.

Pint Bottle.
Pours out clear golden, with a egg shell white head that lingers for a while, and leaves patchy lacing.
Aroma is mostly bready with some floral hops.
Flavor is slightly malty, slightly spicy, a little honey. nice bitter finish.
