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.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2007 I have tried this beer twice now and can describe it with one word: SKUNKY! Why don’t all beer manufacturers use brown bottles? This might be a good beer if it is protected from the light from the point of manufacture until the point of consumption, however in my 2 samples, this didn’t happen. I try never to drink out of clear or green bottles because of the ’skunkiness’ caused by the light. Re-Rate: My local distributor started receiving 12 packs that are sealed and protected from the light. Decided to give it a 3rd try and I’m glad I did. Now that this beer didn’t have a trace of skunkiness, it was an EXCELLENT beer. There was a nice hop presence in the aftertaste that lingers for a while. A very delicious and refreshing session beer. I even broke out my special Pilsener glass for this beer. If you see this beer in sealed packaging, try it again! It is well worth it when the skunk taste/nose isn’t present.

A nice fresh, clean pilsner with a long and dry finish. A solid, reliable classic.

i was disappointed with this beer. i expected better from what is supposedly the original. it has an ordinary taste and there are much better pilsners.

Good flavor, but still a light light for my tastes.

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.
