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 11, 2004 Clear Golden color with a medium head. Slightly sweet and malty aroma with a nice hoppy bitterness. SLightly sweet and slihglty bitter with a nice balance of malt and hops. Light bodied, crisp and smooth.

A nice clean pilser. I tried this in a somewhat smoke filled bar, so I’ll have to rerate once I try it again.

I finally got to try this on tap in Atlanta; I’ve been scared away by the green bottles and horror stories of skunky filth. Anyway, I found it to have a bright Saaz aroma, clean malt bite, and an appetizing hoppy bitterness. Not quite life changing, but it lived up to my expectations and maybe even to its reputation.

This one did not impress me.I found it to be quite bitter and have a strong after taste. Although I’d drink it again, it won’t be my first choice.

I decided to try this on New Year’s Eve b/c it was on sale. Tasted good, and chased Jager shots very well.

Tried a pint last night, and it was excellent. Definately one of the top pilseners that I’ve tried.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2009 One of my favorites. Great aroma, nice full flavor. I would disagree with other reviewers that it is hoppy, it could stand a stronger hop finish to balance.

A classic. Complex and challenging for a lager.
