If you’re Czech, Pilsner Urquell is the equivalent of American Bud. That’s not to say it’s bad at all -- infact, I think it’s a great beer. But it’s a relatively commercial beer and therefore you should adjust your expectations accordingly. I found it excellent to grab a bottle or two alongside a meal when I lived in Prague. And at around US$0.20/bottle, you can’t beat it!

Not a bad pilsner, just not my favorite, either. The green bottle scared me, but it wasn’t all that skunky smelling, and the skunk was more well hidden in the taste. After a few sips, it became slightly sweet and more drinkable. I liked the hoppy bite and the maltiness came through as well. No hint of alcohol at first, either, but that made its appearance at the finish. Overall, a good pilsner, as I said earlier, but I will most likely drink it again only if someone else buys it.

Very good pilsner, made in the town the style is named after, Plzen. The malts are nice, but don’t be fooled -- the malts are only there to serve as a counterweight to the blast of Bohemian hops. i’m not a big pilsner fan, but i’m always happy to drink this one. One suggestion: hit the brewery -- it tastes better in Plzen than it does in the States (slightly different recipe).

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2008 One of the better Pils. Nice aroma, decent hop character. I’ll take one if you’re buying.

Full, sweet malt aroma and a dark gold color
make this enjoyable before the first sip.
Big taste - malty and bitter. Warm filling
mouthfeel. Overall fantastic. Lives up to

Traditionally THE pilsner, floral hop aroma, beautifully balanced, and a clean finish.One caveat-the Budvar (Czeckvar) now available stateside is dated, Pilsner Urquell would do well to emulate this-in the meanwhile, make sure you purchase in a good store, with high turn-over...NASTRAVE!

What a great beer! My dad’s favorite! I am not him however, but this stuff is pretty good for a Check beer. No aftertaste (At last not with Chili) good for Summers, or football season!

It was great, because I got it for free as a birthday gift, but otherwise it was pretty much on the negative side. Extremely bland flavor and a sharply bitter aftertaste. It barely had an appearance as it is nearly clear with a slight brown tint too it, and it really (no really) didn’t smell like I should even taste it. So yeah, I liked it, right.

I didn’t care for this beer to much, too bitter with a bad aftertaste.
