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.

Nice classic pils I love it. Best from the barrel.

Great beer, a sharp, slightly hoppy pilsner that I enjoy, even though half the bottles I get are skunked. Why green bottles? Grr...

adamlau (76) - California, USA - DEC 12, 2001
Salty nose. Tasted like a mild ham and egg sandwich for some reason. Second and third tastes proved the same. Impressed with this beer that tastes like food. Medium carbonation with a short head. Copper-gold color. Sweet ’apple juice-like’ finish.

Too long ago to remember much about this beer. I do remember that it is good.

fuchebu (146) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2001
When it’s fresh, it’s clean, nicely hopped with a pleasing bitterness.

I don’t care for whatever standing it has among ’beer critics,’ this was bad. Perhaps the batch I had was skunky. But I’m not willing to give it a second shot. There are too many beers in the world to pass up, instead.

mikenodak (150) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - DEC 2, 2001
The best pilsner I’ve had when not skunky. I bought it in an enclosed 12-pack, maybe that helped. That’s the only way I’ll buy it.

simply a good beer nothing bad sticks out about it

scrawfis (143) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2001
Overall this beer is nicely refreshing. Lightly hopped flavor balancing very well with the malt flavor. Nice summer beer.

Northernbrewer (147) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2001
In good shape this is still a world class beer, too bad so many 6 packs here in the states sit under florecent lights or collecting dust getting skunky and stale. Bitter and refreshing with fine lace.
