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.

A wonderfully strong colour and smooth soothing flavour. You can’t stop at one demands to be drunk steadily but with respect.

Hear me now! Nice standard pils. Very saaz, very chill, very now. Beach kulcha never knew such Czech gangsta sensibility. Let’s count down the years of love or something.

You’ll probably never forget your first introduction to the aroma of Saaz hops. Pilsner Urquell was mine. I too have noticed inconsistency; between bottles and kegs, kegs and kegs. Gee, guess I’ll have to plan a trip to Czechoslovakia to draw a final verdict. Under the hops, I taste an unremarkable, but solid, lager.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2002
The mother of all pilseners mostly characterized by its malty sweetness followed by a long and dry hopbitter finish. Moreover, it has a nice white head and a decent lacing.

Skunky taste. "Thanks green bottle"! -This had a typical skunk smell with a mellow pilsner taste. Not for me

CapFlu (4462) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 For something that pours like water, Pilsener Urquell really has a pleasant taste.

Great pilsner. Nothing like most of the crappy american ones. Rich head, great hoppy bitterness and floral aroma. Smooth and beautiful.

jerohen (1977) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2007 Golden coloured, nice carbonation. Very pleasantly hoppy, smooth and bitter flavour. It’s true what they say: when referring to Pils, this is the example.
