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.

It was pretty good. It was refreshing. The aftertaste was not that bad. I could drink another one of these.

mstockton (225) - Frankfurt, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2004
Used to love it more, but IMO has a funky aftertaste. I would rather nail a Stella, Heineken or Grolsch any day of the week.

Lunkie (1748) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2004
Clear amber colour with small head. Sweet hop malt aroma. Fizzy palate. Good to drink on a hot summer day.

Nice golden color with a white head. Nice bitter hoppy taste. I thought this was a pretty good brew.

Chuckometer - 10 (you drink it quicker, coz of the bitter aftertaste keeps you sipping.)

Roasty.. I got a distinct taste of roasted marshmallows from this drink. Golden! What I imagine a Pilsner is supposed to be like.

vanvenlo (1679) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2004
29 June 2004 - Pronounced fruit malt aroma. Clear golden orange, low head, suds lacing. Nice bitter sweet malt balance, floral hoppiness that lingers. Slight fizziness and a medium mouthfeel. Not being a big fan of pilsners this is definitely a pilsner I would be happy to drink.

BrewEd (182) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Bottled. Spicy, hoppy boquet. A great, clean pilsner with crisp bitter finish. My favorite next to Budvar.

shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2004
Canned. Bit of a grassy smell, but had some pissy and ethanol undertones I didn’t like. Otherwise fairly well-crafted; the bitterness hits you right away and has a short dry finish. A little thin at the end. Don’t let it get too warm.

Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - AUG 21, 2004
On tap at Houlihan’s. Pretty standard pilsener. A somewhat bitter end to the taste. Back of the mouth tase. Not bad at all.
