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.

A medium golden color with a light head. Lightly bitter. A perfect pilsner.

A beer with many traditions. I like its bitterness - a perfect beer for a hot summerday

A golden clear and sparkly appearance with a very dispersed head. A slight skunky and fruity flavor...crisp. I don't really dig pilsners...but, it wasn't undrinkable.

I'm not much into Pils but this one is quite nice. A lot of flavour in this darker pilsner. Almost a floral like taste. Nice bite in the finish. Sure beats the other pilsners I've had.

Has to be one of the best overall pilsners in the world. Perfect, good sized head. Flavour is wonderful.

Very bitter afterbite, kind of surprising for even a pilsner I thought. Perhaps it is because I drank it after another very bitter beer... <hic!>

TheGreatKen (76) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 12, 2003
This is one of the best pilseners. It's better than SAB's other "true pilsener beer" (Miller Lite).

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2003
Somehow this seems a shadow of the Pilsner Urquel I drank draft in Berlin; did they Americanize it? A deep rich clear amber golden color. Nose of dry floral hop and a little malt. I would have liked more malt and more bitter hop in the taste. Mouth is about right for a lager or pilsner, balanced, with spritz and bite. Drinkable, no flaws, no major excitement.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2003 Light gold color, small lingering head. Malty, some sweetness, good deal of carbonation (not too much, but close), overall fairly tasty.
