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 golden colour. Intense bitterness for a pilsener but guite a disapointing finish.

Just my type of gal. Nice aroma and colorful almond/golden hue. Fresh sharp taste with a strong presence. Very refreshing.

A pilsener as good as pilseners get. Rerate: Had it from can this time, still the benchmark of a good pilsener. Only 4,4% now, but I remember (I think!) that the alcohol content was about 5,2% when I first had it (in Germany) many years ago?!

Not my type of beer, but a nice aroma with a fairly good sharp/bitter taste.

I am not a big fan of Pilsners, but this was refreshing and light. I drank it fairly fast, because it was very nasty when it was warm. It had a slight bite on the front, but was pretty blah on the backend. Overall, I thought it was OK

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.
