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.

This is truly a special brew. I’ve had Urquell on several occasions, but this is the first time I noticed the undertones of hop bitterness. That adds another special component to what I had already deemed a superior beer. It has a roasted malty aroma and a deep golden hue. A thin layer of head remains throughout. Pilsner Urquell is as tasty as it is noble.

You know what, i kinda like that skunky taste. I usually don’t find that anyway. There’s a little bitterness but at a cool temp, it’s nice and crisp

It would be unfair if I comment too much on this beer. The reason being I love it more than any other beer on earth.

Quite a nice beer especially considering the style. Smells a bit skunky. Nice golden color, remember this is the first non-dark beer. A proper respect for history is proper. Good flavor, with nice hop bitterness.

A good pilsener. Light coloured, smells hoppy and just the right bitterness. Had another bottle the other night. Tastes better every time

This is a great pilsener. For some reason, they bottle this beer in green bottles which causes it’s skunky flavor when exposed to light. Get this beer fresh and on tap and you will be amazed. Great hop aroma and flavor. Intense bitterness for a pilsener, almost to the point of being overhopped. No skunkiness when drank fresh and on tap. Pilseners are given a bad name by so many of the sub-par American light lagers. Get a fresh pint of PU to find out what a real pilsener should taste like.

Got this on tap hoping I could avoid the skunkiness . . . no such luck. Obviously the Pilsner to end all Pilsners, but just not up my alley.

I am not a pilsner fan, but this was quite good. the problems with Pilsner Urquell is the same, in my eyes, with every pilsner. A little skunky, not enough body, no head, but something about this one kinda grabbed me. I’d drink another sixer of it.

A little too skunky for me, b ut the dry flavor and nice hops finish on this beer are redeeming qualities.
