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.

A sensational pilsner that’s at the top of the class. Very drinkable with a terrific saaz hop aroma. Very solid and enjoyable.

The best thing about this beer is that it’s been around for almost 800 years. Other than that, it’s nothing very special. Nice color, not too watery, but the taste is pretty ordinary.

The original pilsener, makes you think its kinda funny how a lot of american beers refer to themselves as pilseners. I little skunky for my taste.

Probably the best lager I have had, less blad, and some flavour to it, but I don’t really like lagers.

Very tasty pilsener. Refreshing to say the least, I think it is what pilsener should be. If it were cheaper I would drink it often- expecially in the summer.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2007 Light sweet wheaty aroma. Gold in color with a medium white head. Flavor starts lightly honey sweet followed by a light grassy bitterness and finishing kinda dry and spicy. Light-medium bodied and smooth with crisp carbonation.
