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.

Padron4KM (800) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2005
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.

Pint Bottle: Pours a nice fizzy white head which diminishes after a while. The lacing is minimal, if any. I think the most intrigueing quality about this brew is its aroma. At the beginning and thrroughout I noticed weed and skunk smells (in a good way, if there is such a thing). My wife and I decided to coin a term to describe this that seemed fitting: skunkweed. Later, I also picked up on sweet hints of clover honey. This classic is smooth and soft and clearly stands out from most pilseners.

Good stuff! Very rich, almost fresh bread flavor to it, complemented by just the right mix and right amount of hops. Easily one of the better of the more readily available imports.

Solid pilsner. Won’t overwhelm you. Good to have during a hockey game for some reason. Will definitely drink again.

Bottles in the US are alright, with a tasty hoppy bite, but pretty thin and lacking in fruit flavors. On tap (at least in Prague), it’s one of the better pilsners available, still having more bite than bubbly skunk like Gambrinus, but also fuller than the bottles.

Delicious pilsner, dark amber gold, good head, excellent green hop aroma, slightly flowery palate with excellent balance and finish. If it were cheaper, it would be my standard "have-in-the-fridge-at-all-times-beer". Maybe its sacrilege, but I still like the Emerson’s pilsner better...

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2005 A good definition of a pilsener for the taster. Bold, bitter, refreshing, good skunk. A quality, widely available pilsener beer product.

(bottle) Poured golden yellow with some lacing. Well balanced, but I remember liking it even more a few years ago.
