3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks a little more orange than most pilsners, without much of a head. Aroma is yeasty, doughy, and a little floral. Absolutely delicious to drink. Tons of floral and herbal hops over honey and bread. Solid, easy to find and generally cheap.

Rated from notes taken 7 Oct 2011 -- Purchased and consumed for Pilsner Urquell’s 169th birthday! Definitely a classic Pilsner, clean refreshing and delicious.

Delicious fresh bread malt character with enough freshness of hay and green grass and lemon zest. Commercially textured but plenty of flavour in a dry palate with well balanced bitterness

Decent pilsner. Pours pale golden color, minimal head. Clear, sparkly, and crisp. Very refreshing. Short bitter finish. Good, but it wasn’t great. Hight expectations since it had been talked up by folks in Germany.

Clear gold, strong white head. Maltiness and Saaz hop on the nose. Lovely. Sweet, malty body with notes of bitter and a distinct hoppiness. The Pilsner of Pilsners indeed!

Ok it is a very hard to rate this beer. Because rating a bottle would not be to fair especialy if you find one after 5 monts from production date... Going to one of the best beerpubs in Prague would not reflect what Pilsner Urquell is in general... Soooo after a looot of glases I had during my entire drinking beer life (17 years) I am sitting in an average restaurant close to Wenceslas square rating this one... Main think you notice the foam is doing weird map disapearing fast. Aroma is hops. Taste...sorry after few pilsner style beer in microbreweries this one as main taste has sweetnes. It is no bitter for me. Decent carbonation. Very drinkable. The official description is just arrogance for me! Eapecialy in the situation when this beer is not brewed in Pilsen ONLY anymore... There are sooo many better pilsners in microbreweries...unpasteurized, unfiltered, without any aditives, clear, bitter, drinkable... Please keep in mind I am rating an average restaurant Pilsner Urquell.

Unpasteurized edition, 1L bottle. BBD 3/12/14. Very clear light golden with medium bubbly off-white head. Aroma of honey, floral, some graininess. Clean flavor, slightly sweet, moderate sourness, notes of honey, floral, corn sugar, malty, bitter-sweet finish, not so pleasant bitter aftertaste. Light carbonation, light-bodied. Very easy to drink.

Faktycznie, jako wzór i oryginał piw typu pilzner wypada znakomicie. Mimo wszystko to wciąż tylko i wyłącznie pilzner ;) Uwaga na zieloną butelkę - trzymana na świetle powoduje bardzo szybko zmianę aromatu i smaku piwa.

On tap it just looks fantastic, great nose of hops and fruits.
Fruity and hoppy taste, my first thougt is always like this tastes so good if you’re thirsty. Long lasting bitter finish.
When the place takes care of their tap it just tastes fantastic, the best pilsener to me. Was at a few places where it was considerably less tasty, so while in czech republic it’s probably worth to find a serious pub to have it..
