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.

bottle. light golden color with a 1/4 inch head. hopped slight skunk smell, but not too off putting. interesting flavor. much smoother than i expected. there is a definite malt taste that is more powerful than i expected. the hops are present more at finish. this is the most flavor i have gotten from a pilsener. leaves a nice buttery flavor.

This is a good import. I like its yeastiness and flavour, but it is not one I would regularly buy. At first, I really liked it. But I came to recognise it for the skunkiness that lies hidden within - perhaps you will notice, perhaps not - and if you want to know how the book ends you have to read it for yourself.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2005 Good light beer, I really enjoy this on a hot summer day. I do taste hints of apple in there, smells more hoppy than it tastes. Quite a bitter aftertaste, but I definately like this stuff.

Light golden color with a nice white head. Herbal and hop aroma. Nicely balanced pilsener. A little malty at first, then a nice slightly bitter finish.

Draught in a 500ml shaker. Clear gold, white head& light carbonation. Good lacing. Grassy aroma. Good bitter taste, malt & some apple. OK mouthfeel. Bitter finish. Refreshing & easy drinking. Had four with a pub lunch.

Finally get around to rating this one. Draft at Jet Rock in the Philly Airport. Not much to look at, and not much aroma, but boy is it yummy. Perfect malt hop balance.

RIch golden, with fine head. Some floral saaz, delicate nose. Crisp, light with mild hop finish...Nothing wrong with it though not very interesting.

as far as a pilsner goes this is probably as good as i gets. A big step up from budweuser, but still nothing I would buy again. Very clean and light on the mouth, with a crisp finish
