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.

Excellent Pilsner. This ain’t the model for pilsner because it’s far better than most it’s imitator’s. The finish is fantastic and I can still taste the nice Czech hops here 34 minutes after I had the beer :-)

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 6, 2004
Golden color, light carbonation and a light white head. Nice sticky lacing. Aroma is a little skunky with hops and some background malt. Flavor is light, slightly sweet with a crisp pilsner hop finish. Mouthfeel is light bodied and effervescent. I am not a big fan of pilsners, but this one is quite drinkable -- not overly dry.

A nice golden color with high clarity. Light aroma, crisp, but nothing special. Something I could drink alot of if offered.

It was pretty good. It was refreshing. The aftertaste was not that bad. I could drink another one of these.

mstockton (225) - Frankfurt, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2004
Used to love it more, but IMO has a funky aftertaste. I would rather nail a Stella, Heineken or Grolsch any day of the week.

Lunkie (1665) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2004
Clear amber colour with small head. Sweet hop malt aroma. Fizzy palate. Good to drink on a hot summer day.

Nice golden color with a white head. Nice bitter hoppy taste. I thought this was a pretty good brew.

AIESECQld (6) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2004 does not count
Chuckometer - 10 (you drink it quicker, coz of the bitter aftertaste keeps you sipping.)

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2004
Roasty.. I got a distinct taste of roasted marshmallows from this drink. Golden! What I imagine a Pilsner is supposed to be like.

vanvenlo (1576) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2004
29 June 2004 - Pronounced fruit malt aroma. Clear golden orange, low head, suds lacing. Nice bitter sweet malt balance, floral hoppiness that lingers. Slight fizziness and a medium mouthfeel. Not being a big fan of pilsners this is definitely a pilsner I would be happy to drink.
