I guess I have been pretty lucky, because all the Pilsner Urquell bottles I’ve had in this country have been absolutely beautiful .. This is the absolute definition of a pilsner and anything that lables itself as such has to be compared against this (start trembling, Miller Lite!). Luscious golden color.. wonderful hops.. Ahh , I want to go to the Czech Republic and swim in their tanks...
Update: Had this the other day, and I was absolutely astounded by the wonderful aroma, so I’m jacking it up to a 10.

By far the finest Pils I have had. Even the American bottled version isn’t bad. Nothing compares to a fresh Urquell in Praha. Fantastic!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, golden with a thin head. I honestly expected it to be skunked(green bottle)but it wasnt. Wonderful nose of full malt and saaz hoppiness. This is really good and im sure it would be magificent if i could get it fresher. Full malt body with herbal notes with a dry saaz finish. Tremendous balance and flavor for such a ’light’ beer. A must try.

I have had many different experiences with this brew. On draft very good and occasionlly good in the bottle. When everything is right, a world class pilsner.

After all the hype I had heard, I expected more than what I got. It was skunky indeed. I tried to pop the top bartender style and broke glass off the neck. I should have poured it out assuming that some glass had fallen into the beer...but I ended up drinking it unfortunately.

Decent Pils. It was skunky, but I liked it better than St. Pauli Girl. Drinkable

Best beer in the world. Don’t drink it from the bottle, pour it into a Pilsner glass and just sit and enjoy that aroma, your first sip should make your eyes roll back into your head from pleasure. I’ve lived and traveled to quite a few places on earth and have to say I’ve not found a better beer. Although I’ve not yet been to the Czech Republic I did drink this fresh in Italy and Germany. And judging from the amount of spent bottles I saw laying in German trash cans I can honestly say that the Berliners at least love this stuff! Budvar used to be #1 on my list, but that was before I tasted Pilsner Urquell.
