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.

Fine aroma of hops, golden, large cream coloured head, with faint lace. Great hops taste, some malt but such a nice bitter aftertaste. Well balanced, good body, dry bitter finish. A truly great Pilsner, first had this in 1972, still reliably good!

Dry bitter finish. Having one just makes you thirstier. Isn't that the way it should be?

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2005 February 2003. A true classic: hoppy, flavorful, meaty and malty. The draught version is a real performance. [4.7] January 2005. I’ve been trying this beer since 2000 (always on tap, in different places in Praha) and gradually it’s been losing its charm. It becomes hoppier and less malty, like an ordinary bitter. Still OK, but too far from its former unique status. [3.7]

Very little in the way of aroma, but with a nice reddish gold color. The only really remarkable thing about this beer was the rapidly evolving flavor that pops out of the esters. I've never tasted anything like it. It's fruity in a way I can't place. After the initial hit, the otherwise normal beer just fleshes out into this really remarkable flavor that only lasts for a few seconds. The strong spike in taste leaves a fairly unpleasant aftertaste behind.

True to style, since it is the style, but this is a style that i just dont appreciate as much as others. the aroma was malty with spicy hop accents and a touch of diacetyl at the end. the brilliantly clear body is golden and supports a creamy white head. there is a malty flavor that starts and then returns in the finish but its continuity is interrupted by noble hop flavoring and bitterness. the balance in the finish is quite refreshing. the medium carbonation and body make this a quaffable drink.

This is by far the best pilsner I've had so far. Yellowish-gold color with little head. Everything is nicely balanced to make a smooth drinking beer.

nice deep gold color, moderately but pleasantly bitter, long-lasting, classic Pilsner taste

A really good crisp beer. It sure tastes good with pizza or calzone. This beer was the beer of the month at a bar around the corner.

A medium golden color with a light head. Lightly bitter. A perfect pilsner.

A beer with many traditions. I like its bitterness - a perfect beer for a hot summerday
