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.

the classic lager. lovely sweet malt and a good dose of hops. I’ve heard this beer was better years ago, I would love to have tried it then. very enjoyable.

I dont know why pilsners arent higher up on the food chain here. This was a great, non abraisive food beer. Step up from Heine...

One of my fvourite lager/pilsener style beer. Difficult to fault in any way - I just wish that beers of this type could score more highly on the aroma and appearance front! Lovely, refreshing and crisp beer!

I keep hearing rumors about "oh, it’s not the beer it once was--no more wooden conditioning casks, don’t you know." I’ve probably had about 500 samples of this one, and they varied widely. The best (in a Vienna movie theater) showed off an incredibly integrated hop and malt flavors, with a certain flintiness that was simply incredible. At worst, it tasted like hopped water or diacetyl nastiness. Tasted at the Czech embassy recently, I found it to have wonderful malt and hops, vying for prominence and ending in a nice dry hop finish. Goes well with absinthe.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2004 Too often ruined by the journey (long bloody journey at that) from the Czeck Republic to Australia. I'm still amazed at the the seductive flavours of saaz. Sometimes ruined by a green (skunky as many of the North Americans call it) character, but sometimes you get lucky, and get a lovely soft honeyed, floral saaz character. Makes me wonder how good this stuff must be on tap in Plzen. many people say this beer is overated, i say thats bullshit, its a goal of mine to try this stuff at the source.
