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.

Draft. Pours dark gold with off-white head. Bread malt aroma. Bread crust with some caramel notes followed by some bitterness in the crisp finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BrewBrain (137) - Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Brown bottle exp 10 16 to pint glass. Light malts, slight herbal aroma. No skunkiness. Crystal clear light amber with small white head. Taste is very easy balance of smooth malt and mildly spicy and faintly floral hop. Very very easy going down. Very brief hop aftertaste, moderate carbonation.

Pours a clear golden amber from a bottle, almost instantaneously disappearing head. Saaz and corn aroma. Skunky flavor. Not very good.

Very smooth and gentle to the tongue, like a good pilsner should taste. As lagers go, this is a very good one. A classic, in fact, and my father (who shared my beer I stole from my brother’s stash) agreed.

Tried a six-pack glass bottles of this I picked up at the local Publix supermarket, poured into a beer glass at home, while eating some Babybell swiss cheese dipped in sriracha sauce, while watching DVD’s, particularly Coppola’s Gardens of Stone. This beer poured slightly flat, with an amber-ish color; the aroma was a bit metallic and skunky, with a bitter-ish taste, likely due to the skunkitudeness of the beer, which has probably been sitting somewhere it shouldn’t (hot warehouse?), getting all skunkified. Based on the high ratings, I’d say I was simply unlucky and got skunked :(

Kolor ciemnego z?ota, nieco pomara?czowy, klarowny. Piana bia?a z delikatnym odcieniem ecru, ?rednio p?cherzykowa, bardzo wysoka, ?rednio trwa?a, pozostawia zdobienia. Aromat s?odowo zio?owy z lekk? nutk? metaliczn?. Smak: s?odowy, zio?owo kwiatowy, chmielowy, piwo jest ?rednio tre?ciwe. Goryczka sucha, mo?e odrobin? za niska, wysycenie wysokie, jak najbardziej pasuje.

Can, 50cl. Golden clear with a frothy white head. Beautiful beer. Malty aroma, but for some reason I find it hard to find any hops. Nice bitterness and a fantastic mouthfeel. A light body with a lively neat carbonation. This beer makes my mouth dry ever so slightly with the lingering bitterness. Though my experience with lagers is limited, I’m very happy about this beer.

MRMedellin (272) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - MAY 3, 2016
Clear golden beer, standar White head, normal carbonation, the aroma is not that good, metallic notes, some earthy notes and some dough notes are perceived. When is tasted it has a medium body with the expected flavor for a Pilsner, bitter and dense in palate. The aftertaste is as well bitter a little bit sour, and persistent.

Very good beer. But sometimes to much toffee and butter. An sometimes to bitter, and sometimes to sweet. Sometimes this beer makes me feel very good. Sometimes it makes me feel strange. But this is not a bad beer. It is something special about it. Try it you will love it.

Klasyk, wzór, Urquell. Wysoka piana w kolorze białym, kolor piwa złocisty, złoty. Znakomity chmielowy, ziołowy aromat, rześki, orzeźwiający. Długo pozostający na języku i podniebieniu smak.
