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.

Very fresh hoppy aroma. Quite big white head. Appearance very clear, golden. Bitterness which has some bite - but not too heavily plus grass flavour which stays long enough to make drinking enjoyable. (9/3/8/4/15 3.9)
Re-rate: bottled (BB 01/2005)
Dark golden color with steady white head, lace. Strong hoppy aroma - like it should be. Hops dominate mouthfeel, some sugary notes too. Bitter hoppy aftertaste. Classic benchmark of the style. (7/3/7/5/15 3.7)

The light appearance was not the most appealing, however, the nice sweet aroma and light flavor was enjoyable under many circumstances.

Lovely pilsener; easy to find. It starts with a swet taste-aroma and ends with a - no too much- bitter tasting. Everybody needs to have Pilsner Urquell in their fridge!

Tessic (1036) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2004
This beer pours golden yellow with a white slightly creamy head. Aromas of corn sugar and hops. Initial sip tasted a strong flavour of corn syrup. Mouthfeel was slightly creamy. Hoppy middle with a some what bitter finish. All along with the flavour of pure corn syrup.

envane (569) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Yes its better over in Czechia, but I try my luck whenever 12 packs go on sale here. Deep golden color, noble hop aroma. Not that bitter but w/ solid malt flavour.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 1, 2004
This is a very crisp beer. Very dry, very clean. Does have a nice grassy aroma to it. This is a classic pils.

As largers go this is a good one. Nice zesty aroma with a nice malt and hop balance. Better than most.

hershiser2 (2046) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2004
Appearance: bright golden, small head, but lots and lots of carbonation running up the glass. smell: wheaty and very skunky. Green bottle, so there might be the answer... but this specific sample is extremely skunky. taste: grass, pepper, a slight skunk... biggest taste that I pull out is the grass. It's very strong. mouthfeel: very nice; good carbonation. Not a fan of this brew- there's much better out there.
