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.

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.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2014 Bottle (BB Mar 2015). Head is initially small, 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).

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.

Golden coloured. Fresh from tap the aromatic, oily saaz aroma is very evident. It is rather dry, medium bodied and has a great deal of bitterness. One of the best megabrewed beers around.

Something about the smell that always makes me nostalgic for something, but not sure what. A great taste that is enhanced by the odd smell of the beer.

More hoppiness than usual for a ’commercial’ beer. Overall a good, not great beer.
