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.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 9, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2003 12 oz green bottle, pours deep golden color with a nice white head that clings to the sides of the glass. Good fresh grassy hop aromas, nice clean grainy hoppy flavor, medium bodied with a crisp mouthfeel, finishes dry and clean, awesome pilsner, the way it should be.

winkle (476) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2002
Bottle rated. A good beer, hoppy and bitter, nice aroma. Probably not the best pilsner in the world but in the top 10.

pilsnerrogge (2413) - Finspĺng, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2010 Bottled:
Pours a pale golden colour with a dense head. Butter, cookie dough and honey on the nose with some herbal notes of hops. Big herbal and grassy bitterness, somewhat thin mouth feel.

I had a skunked bottle so I will have to re-rate.

theFinatUofI (45) - Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2002
This a beer that will not bore you. An excitingly complex palate with some bitterness combined with a very smooth body make it one of my all time favorites. The bottled version doesn’t quite compare to the real thing you get in Praha. If you have never had one, well, your loss...

jazz88 (2528) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 27, 2002
Tap. One of the finest pilsners available. Clean, sharp, dry flavor.

karsten (240) - odense, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2002
Nice golden colour. Intense bitterness for a pilsener but guite a disapointing finish.

Choke (96) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 23, 2002
one of the best tasting pilsners around

GPyott (67) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2002
Just my type of gal. Nice aroma and colorful almond/golden hue. Fresh sharp taste with a strong presence. Very refreshing.
