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.

I know this beer is supposed to be special when really fresh, i.e., in the Czech Republic, but my draft example was weak, had no aroma and little character. I admit there was an elegant hoppiness to it but little else. Very dry finish.

AN OLD FAVORITE RECENTLY VISITED THE BREWERY. WHAT A GREAT CANNED BEER FROM THE SOURCE GREAT ON DRAFT ALSO

hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2002
Challenging in many ways - challenging to find it in good shape here in Michigan but then, when you do, a challenge to sensibilities dulled to the style. This one has quite an earthy body for a lighter beer and a dancing smile of hops.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2002
Nice and malty, yet clean mouthfeel. Saaz hops not overdone as other pilseners tend to be. Enjoyable and refreshing.

GregL40 (97) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 9, 2002
Unthrilling appearance, but better than average pilsner. Enjoyed the unique bitter mouthfeel. Easygoing after one.

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 (2450) - 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.
