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.

Spicy saaz aroma. Clear golden colour with large bubbled white head that recedes to cover. Strong, spicy bitterness is the dominant flavour. Medium light body and long dry finish. Perhaps not best of style (overbalanced towards bitterness) but a decent beverage all the same. Bottle (green).

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2004 A great brew when you're downing a six pack. Smooth drinking with some hoppiness - a modle for the macros, proving that you can pump out a beer with flavour that has mass appeal.

BearBrewer (86) - New York, east village, New York, USA - APR 11, 2004
One of my first favorite "real" beers. Fantastic on tap, beautiful straw color, effervescant white head, strong hop nose. Crisp smooth finish with a nice hop bite at the end. A great drinking beer.

ToolHead (266) - Křbenhavn, DENMARK - APR 7, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2005 50 cl bottle, served in Urquell glass. Dark gold w/ good-sized head. Pleasant, hoppy aroma. Crisp, somewhat bitter taste w/ a pleasant bite, and a fabulous, lingering, very distinctive finish. Easier to drink than water. I never get tired of this beer, and I regret that I didn’t get around to tasting it some years back when it had even more character.

On tap - Slaughtered Lamb Greenwich Village. A slightly creamy aroma more characterful than most pilsners. The colour is golden but over-carbonated. Flavour is slightly creamy and wheaty. Not bad for a pilsener and apparently much copied.

I misjudged this beer initially after drinking it from a bottle; on tap it is more flavorful and well worth your time.

DocLock (8530) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2004
A good, crisp pils. Yelloe coloredwith a subdued head. Aromas of citrus and hops. Has a smooth hoppy taste, with a crisp, clean finish. The green bottle have got to go, though. I've had skunked bottles of this.

adrian910ss (2421) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2004
Golden, yellowish in color with a small head. Slightly bitter in taste, but in a pleasant way. Good beer for drinking on a hot summer day.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2004
Bottle. Grassy hops aroma with some maltiness and black pepper. Just enough bitterness. Seemed to be a slightly old sample and a bit tired.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2004
On Draught Clear light gold with a small snow white head. Fresh grain aroma with a nice bit of hops to boot. Thin body and crisp with a slight bitterness in the finish that lingers. Flavor is fresh grains and not much else. The classic Pils. Refreshing and a great companion for a sandwich.
