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.

Hmm... maybe mine haven’t been fresh. I am a long way from the Czech Republic. Some pepper, some extracty mineral flavors, dusty hop flavors. Could be lightstruck -- they don’t see fit to package this beer appropriately. One of the most overrated beers at RateBeer.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2004 Nice level of hops and dryness. Enjoyed this one along San Antonio's Riverwalk. Slight bitter aftertaste, but one that I looked forward to rather than cringed at.

Medium dark gold color, medium head. Hoppy and malty. Nice floral hop flavor, good balance, only slightly bitter. Mouthfeel is full and round. Taste is smooth and full bodied. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2002
Rich golden color. Has a "snappy" dryness. Good for drinking many in the summer. Bitter finish. Far superior to American macro pilsners.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - OCT 7, 2002
Fair head but a nose akin to feet. Sweet malty charactor and a nice floral hoppyness...but that smell??? Also noticed a little unpleasant bitterness in the back half.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - OCT 2, 2002
Nice hop aroma, pours a golden yellow with a large white head. I must have gotten a good bottle, because this is a tastey pilsner. Slightly bitter hop aftertaste. Hopefully I can find this on tap somewhere to compare it to the bottles. Definitely a worldclass beer.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2002
Along the same lines as Heineken and Becks. Pungent and skunky but judging from the overall score, dust on the bottles, and expected lack of consistancy in green bottles, they may be a little off.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2002
A very fine example (maybe the only example) of real pilsener! A very hoppy flavour and aroma with a twist of malt. The palate is very bitter and strong and lasts for a long time. Very nice dark/golden colour. A very well balanced brew!

One of the better Pilsners.
