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.

Very tasty pilsener. Refreshing to say the least, I think it is what pilsener should be. If it were cheaper I would drink it often- expecially in the summer.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2007 Light sweet wheaty aroma. Gold in color with a medium white head. Flavor starts lightly honey sweet followed by a light grassy bitterness and finishing kinda dry and spicy. Light-medium bodied and smooth with crisp carbonation.

A good pilsner. I would get it again if I was looking for a lighter beer.

Very impressive pilsner, and what is even more impressive is that I found it in one of the biggest shithole of bars in the world. Tried it just to see what the supposed ’first pilsner ever’ was like and was very pleased. The hype behind it was probably the best quality of the beer, but the aroma and taste were nothing to complain about one bit.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 10, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2006 Re-rate 8/29/06: Clear pale yellow orange with a thin white head, aroma contains flowers, grass and some citrus, medium bodied with nice carbonation, starts and lightly bitter. Re-rate 3/29/02: Crisp and refreshing. Getting a new, unopened 12-pack is the way to go with this beer. Be wary of a bottle sitting under the lights. First rating: It is a quality pilsner, however that in itself is a big problem for a stout/barleywine drinker like me.
