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.

Just add me to the long list of drinkers who complain about widely varying quality - why don’t they put this stuff in brown bottles?

I’m not really a pils guy, but this is undeniably impressive.

Don’t understand what’s so great about this beer, and why so many people like it.

It goes down very easy and is a great example of a pilsner.

I am basing this review on the best Pilsner Urquell that I have ever had. But usually it is not up to par, this beer is notorious for not travelling well, and this is well deserved as you will generally get a mediocre if not downright bad bottle. But if you get a good one it is a great pilsener. Must be great at the source...

Rich honey and leathery taste glides down too easily. Flowery slightlysweet and delish. Bring it on, try it in a factory glass,even better. Encore

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2008 RERATE 9/07: Floral nose, slightly citric, golden body, white head dissipates rapidly. Floral and citric/fruity notes in the flavor a bit grainy but not badly so refreshing. Moderate bitterness.

Ernest (6181) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2012 Bottle (BB Dec 2012). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium to dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/bread, cereal), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with light notes of men’s cologne and honey. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Still one of the best mega-brews in the world (when reasonably fresh and unskunked).

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - FEB 21, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2003 Pale golden, good carbonation. Wonderful clean, fresh, hoppy aroma. Flavor is light and crisp, with a nice richness, fairly malty and well balanced with perfect dry finish.
