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: AUG 10, 2015 Slight hoppy flavor, with a little bit of bitterness. Has a good strong flavor that hides the skunk, so that you can barely taste it. I’m not a huge pilsner fan, but this is better than alot of them.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 8, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2005 8/8/2004 (bottle) - Reddish gold color, clear body. White frothy head. Nice fresh Saaz aroma. I’m trying to decide if I am getting occaisional skunk hints. It seems fine though. Taste is dry and lightly hopped grain. Seems a little papery to. Pretty good nonetheless. (7 / 4 / 7 / 3 / 14) 5/20/2005 (tap @ Trysting Place after SW3) - Didn’t really rate this, but it is great on tap. Light bodied, but occaisionally fruity and almost oily Saaz hops. Better on tap. Nice amber color; better than my friend’s Lite, which some chick thought was water. (7 / 4 / 7 / 4 / 15)

RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2004 660ml Bottle. Can be a little prone to skunking, but when it is fresh it is superb. Good Saaz hop aroma and hoppy bitterness. Fairly dry tasting, lovely bitter finish. One of the best pilseners I have had.

Used to drink this a lot, I never realized it was actually a decent beer. Skunky, grainy, corn aroma. Pretty good golden appearance, with a slight reddish hue. Kinda average pilsener flavor. Slightly bitter aftertaste. OK pilsener.

NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2009 It’s a very fine pilsener aroma. Nice pilsener, how it’s supposed to be. It’s a twinkling sensation on my tongue. Nice dark yellow colour. Nice!

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Dark dark yellow with little head...looked like something you pee the morning after...smelled skunky and tasted skunky with a hoppy finish...it may be the original, but the original what?

RedEft (155) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Watery yellow, fairly skunky with moderate flavor. Sort of greasy texture. Not what I was expecting at all. Not buying it again.

diabel (1650) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2004
Clear, yellow body. Off-white creamy head, virtually not lacing and mostly diminsihing. Hoppy (flowers) and yeasty (dough) aroma. Moderately bitter initial flavour and lightly bitter (averagely long) finish. Lively carbonation.

bottle. light golden color with a 1/4 inch head. hopped slight skunk smell, but not too off putting. interesting flavor. much smoother than i expected. there is a definite malt taste that is more powerful than i expected. the hops are present more at finish. this is the most flavor i have gotten from a pilsener. leaves a nice buttery flavor.
