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.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2009 It’s a very fine pilsener aroma. Nice pilsener, how it’s supposed to be. It’s a twinkling sensation on my tongue. Nice dark yellow colour. Nice!

I thought after the first couple it tasted good but it is beer and thats good cause beer is good although pilsners aren’t on the top of my list, but it is ok.

Dark dark yellow with little head...looked like something you pee the morning after...smelled skunky and tasted skunky with a hoppy finish...it may be the original, but the original what?

Watery yellow, fairly skunky with moderate flavor. Sort of greasy texture. Not what I was expecting at all. Not buying it again.

diabel (1645) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2004
Clear, yellow body. Off-white creamy head, virtually not lacing and mostly diminsihing. Hoppy (flowers) and yeasty (dough) aroma. Moderately bitter initial flavour and lightly bitter (averagely long) finish. Lively carbonation.

bottle. light golden color with a 1/4 inch head. hopped slight skunk smell, but not too off putting. interesting flavor. much smoother than i expected. there is a definite malt taste that is more powerful than i expected. the hops are present more at finish. this is the most flavor i have gotten from a pilsener. leaves a nice buttery flavor.

This is a good import. I like its yeastiness and flavour, but it is not one I would regularly buy. At first, I really liked it. But I came to recognise it for the skunkiness that lies hidden within - perhaps you will notice, perhaps not - and if you want to know how the book ends you have to read it for yourself.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2005 Good light beer, I really enjoy this on a hot summer day. I do taste hints of apple in there, smells more hoppy than it tastes. Quite a bitter aftertaste, but I definately like this stuff.

Light golden color with a nice white head. Herbal and hop aroma. Nicely balanced pilsener. A little malty at first, then a nice slightly bitter finish.

Draught in a 500ml shaker. Clear gold, white head& light carbonation. Good lacing. Grassy aroma. Good bitter taste, malt & some apple. OK mouthfeel. Bitter finish. Refreshing & easy drinking. Had four with a pub lunch.
