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.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2003 golden in color, decent head with lacing, flowery aroma. Excellent hoppy bitter flavor and finish.

Bronstein (175) - Göttingen, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2002
Golden color, creamy head. Sweet aroma. Some malty flavours but aroma hops are dominating. This ’original’ pilsner is not very dry or herbal. Medium body. Surprisingly full flavoured for the amount of alcohol. Very drinkable. Unfortunately pasteurized.

Brisbane (24) - SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2002
Bottle. Light amber, apple-cider color. Tastes warm even from the fridge. Lots of action in the mouth. Mild musty smell with a rusty, oxidated taste. Sweetish and tart. Not a knock-out, because it is a pilsner, but at good one at that. Not much to say for or against this brew.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2004 Rerate Still a damn good pils, but notice a bit less sweetness this time and a little more saaz bitterness/skunkiness. Still very smooth and refereshing though. Original 3.9 At first blush one thinks it is a Becks/St Pauli/Heineken clone - but it is much more than that. Nice, even light malty aroma, tight, bubbly pour with a moderate lacing white head. Golden appearance that has "classic beer" written all over it. Not a pilsener lover but if I am going to have one - this is how I want it to taste. Nice sweet undertones accentuate the classic dry pilsener flavor. Stays strong throughout. Glad I finally found a place that sold a single of this!

This was quite good, especially for a pilsner. I’m glad a pilsner buddy made me try it, I’ll probably have this again a few times.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2006 One of my go to beers. Extremely refreshing. Very light, with tasty hop flavors. Easy quaffer. It can’t get high ratings because it’s not complex; still, it’s a good beer.

GermanBrews76 (678) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2002
On tap here in America. Seems like a good idea to me. Less likely to be monthss old. Dark golden color, with hints of amber. Crystal clear body, much darker that I expected. Very light, crisp malts, mildly hopped. Real clean! Smells like some cereal grain is in there too. Wow, lots ot barley And grainy taste. Kind of fizzy, but that should be expected, I suppose. Mild notes of subdued hops on the sides of the tongue. Certainly deserves It’s reign as the "gold standard" for a pilsener!
