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.

One of the best beers I've ever had. The price of a case is a bit pricy around $30, but is definately worth it. Very thick taste, yet with a golden flavor.

Found a bottle that seemed reasonably fresh. Nice golden colour, thick white head with lacing. Aroma is floral and saazy. Flavour isn't so heavy on hops that the malt is forgotten; a nicely balanced flavour. Fizzy, yet firm in the mouth. A classic that didn't dissapoint. Bottle.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2004
Draft: Deep gold w/ a lasting pearl white head. Aroma is of a stronger diacetyl than I'm used to in this one. Grainy malt sweetness, and light flowery hop. Flavor is malty but balanced by a very pleasant bitterness in the finish and hop flavored aftertaste. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated, and smooth mouthfeel. Overall a good beer, but I'm not in awe of this beer by any stretch of the imagination.

Wonderful Saaz! I just love this beer in every way. Beautiful golden color and lacy head - smooth yet spicy - may I have another?

Proper color, superb hoppiness in both taste and aroma. Dry with a big (but not obtrusive) hops aftertaste. Beautiful Belgian lace, but low in the bubbly department.

Pretty darn good for a macro beer. A crisp refreshing beer with some bitterness and sweetness.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2004
Spicy saaz aroma. Clear golden colour with large bubbled white head that recedes to cover. Strong, spicy bitterness is the dominant flavour. Medium light body and long dry finish. Perhaps not best of style (overbalanced towards bitterness) but a decent beverage all the same. Bottle (green).

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2004 A great brew when you're downing a six pack. Smooth drinking with some hoppiness - a modle for the macros, proving that you can pump out a beer with flavour that has mass appeal.

One of my first favorite "real" beers. Fantastic on tap, beautiful straw color, effervescant white head, strong hop nose. Crisp smooth finish with a nice hop bite at the end. A great drinking beer.

ToolHead (266) - Křbenhavn, DENMARK - APR 7, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2005 50 cl bottle, served in Urquell glass. Dark gold w/ good-sized head. Pleasant, hoppy aroma. Crisp, somewhat bitter taste w/ a pleasant bite, and a fabulous, lingering, very distinctive finish. Easier to drink than water. I never get tired of this beer, and I regret that I didn’t get around to tasting it some years back when it had even more character.
