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.

Transfer from BA review on 6-18-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a golden color with a big white head. The head faded fast to give a lighter amount of lacing. Smell – The smell is of biscuit notes as well as floral/grassy and a light skunky aroma. Taste – The taste starts out crisp and malty. There are hints of barley malt and some corn up front. These remain throughout the flavor, but other tastes come and go throughout. In the middle of the taste there is a lighter sugary and caramel sweetness. This fades however at the end where some floral and grassy flavors come to the taste and leave a crisp slightly bitter flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel- A lighter body with a higher level of carbonation. Very good for the lightness of the beer. Overall – A good beer on a nice warm day (as how I enjoyed it today). While not huge on favor or aroma, it is very easy drinking and refreshing.

As far as pilsners go, this one is pretty fantastic. Pours crisp gold and clear with a full white fluffed head. Nose is lightly bready and yeasty with clean malt notes. Flavor is light citrus of hops and malty smoothness. It’s really decent and easy drinking

Appearance crystal clear light golden, with a frothy white foam cap. Aroma is spicy saaz hop and rich pilsner malt. Hint of butter. Taste is rich, bready malt with a slight buttery quality and a soft, rounded hop bite that is stronger than it feels. Mouthfeel is medium with a slight creaminess. Finishes dry with a lingering spicy bitterness.

Xavalias (34) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2014
Pours golden yellow from the can and forms a pretty thick fluffy head that quickly reduces to an uneven thin foam. Initial sweetness is followed by a short-lasting bitter aftertaste. Not much in terms of taste and aroma beyond some bitter citrus zests.

A great Czech pils. According to me, you can’t get more flavor out of a bottom-fermented beer than this.

Golden color, good taste and smooth. It is very drinkable but not so week taste. And it's also good not too expensive.

Sissio (524) - Orsenigo, ITALY - JUN 14, 2014
Clear golden, minimal white head. Cereals and malts on nose, similar to the mash. Light body with cereals and a dry hoppy bitterness.

seynie (129) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUN 13, 2014
Very clear gold pilsner with a quickly fading head. Malt and mineral water, slightly dry and sweet finish. Well balanced and refreshing but like all lagers little substance
