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.

Rei00 (66) - CHILE - SEP 8, 2016
Una Czech Pilsner de baja carbonatación. Su aroma es a levadura y toques cítricos. Su sabor es refrescante, con toques de Malta y un final cremoso. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bebum (783) - USA - SEP 5, 2016
Crystal clear, light gold color, tall, lasting head. Medium body, moderate flavor, gassy, low alcohol heat, lingering bitterness. Dry which increases bitterness, Yeasty, Disappointing, considering the fame. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mateuszk (2155) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 3, 2016
Bottle. Looks like classic pilsner, clear, golden with big fluffy white head. Aroma of malt and touch of herbal hops. In taste lightly sweet, malty with herbal hops. Light body, high carbonation, medium to low bitterness. Classic.

Kobracai (147) - FINLAND - SEP 3, 2016
Clear, deep gold. Aroma is clean malt sweetness but also a mineral roundness. Taste is malty and spicy with bitter hoppy character. The spice has a nice quality to it. Very nice pils with right amount of bitterness.

Cerveza color ámbar claro. Corona de burbujas pequeña y compactas. Al paladar se perciben notas a maltas dulces con un amargor sutil pero que perdura al final de cada sorbo. Una gran cerveza, de mis preferidas dentro del estilo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rhombic (118) - SPAIN - AUG 28, 2016
Bottle. Nice concept, very good notion of balancing a decent flavour with the more drinkable qualities of most pilsners. However, there is a difference between acknowledging this and considering the best exponent of a style. While the flavour is complex, it could have been a bit more long lasting. It obviously is one of the better macrobrewed ones, of course. Aromas are nice but somewhat sparse, mostly cereal-ish. Good choice for a pilsner, but there is no point to mindlessly rave about it being perfect, because of the lack of complexity in the aromas and the slightly thin texture. Very good flavour profile though.

No soy demasiado fan de la primera Pilsner. Me parece bien que lo utilicen a favor, como publicidad, pero creo que si una cerveza no es buena da igual que sea pionera en su estilo (aplicable no solo a cervezas). Está muy bien que traten de colarte que no solo es la primera Pilsner, si no que también es especial, que llevan usando la misma receta no sé cuántos ańos... etc. La realidad es que la cerveza es floja. Es dorada, como casi cualquier Pilsner. No crea mucha espuma por mucho que te esfuerces. La carbonatación tampoco está muy presente. El aroma es mejor que el sabor... que, he de decir, es bastante plano y, en cierto modo, desagradable. En boca se puede dar el aprobado, pero una vez que uno la traga queda un regusto de sabe Dios qué que no me interesa lo más mínimo. żPara refrescar? Indudable. żPara disfrutar? Denme otra cosa.
