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.

This beer rocks... kind of. A very good beer. One of the world’s better Pilseners, but not the best. I don’t care if it WAS the first. A very good summer beer. Please take into account that I’m not really a fan of this style of beer.

Nuffield (3666) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2002
Hoppy goodness, distinctive. Certainly can be appreciated for being a more bold (and original) version of the pilsener. A bit on the fizzy side, and certainly the bitterness comes through.

Slightly sour tasting beer with a thick texture and a large degree of bitterness. Different compared to a lot of other pilsners but a lot better.

Even though this is the original Pils both bottles I had were skunked I’m not a big fan of this one

YogiBeera (2451) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2005 Sweet hoppy, dusty and clay aroma. Golden with a fast diminishing rocky head. Supter bitter taste also toasty. Long harsh bitter finish. To bitter for my taste but a good Pils

One the the best mass produced beers. No wonder more it is drunk each year than any other beer. Slightly bitter at the end, but very smooth. Plus you can get it for pretty cheap.

madsberg (10140) - Sřborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2004 Bottled: Light golden with a nice head. Has a sweet malty aroma. The flavour is balanced and hoppy. Great bitterness in the aftertaste. Very good pilsener. Dosn"t pretend to be more than it is.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2002
Out of the bottle: Beautiful crystal clear deep golden colour. Malty and saaz hop bitterness resound in perfectly in the front end. Very rounded out flavour profile with light hoppy flavour and no hop aroma.

I had one of these out of a bottle at the Old Bag of Nails Pub in Worthington. Sweet nose of apples, pears, and vanilla. Pours a light bubbly golden with an average sized white and frothy head that has great lacing. The flavor is deep; outstanding for a Pils. Hints of dried fruit and vanilla are prominent. Very balanced with no acidity. The body is soft, creamy and smooth. The finish feels clean. Hands down the best Pils I have ever tasted. I couldn’t have imagined rating a Pils so high before tonight.
