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.

Tap. Pours light yellow/gold. Aroma is mild malt and grass. Clean crisp taste with some mild bitterness. Good for the style.

eunck (142) - Hamburg, Hamburg, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2016
The original, well executed without too much fanciness. Fitting as the meter to compare all other Pilseners to, and most would fall short in my opinion.

gr_pa (387) - siemianowice, POLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Clear, golden, after few seconds head dissapears competly, high carbonation. Very weak aroma: bread, hay. Light to medium body, medium sweetness. Clean, bit empty flavour, some bitterness at fionish (medium level). Comparing to "eurolagers", bitterness is quite high, bot overall it’s empty and dissapointing.

Grisza77 (556) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 5, 2016
Jasnozłote, klarowne piwo o średniej pianie, która dość szybko redukuje się do zera. Aromat i smak słodowy z minimalna nutą chmielu. Goryczka niska. Ogólnie spodziewałem się dużo więcej po starciu z czeską legendą, a wyszła zwykła koncernowa jałowość i bark smaków, zdecydowanie za mało chmielu.

ffbot (350) - Oakland, California, USA - AUG 4, 2016
Pours a dark orange with many bubbles but no head. Smell of very bitter hops, and grainy malt. Taste is slightly metallic, mineral, hoppy, and a light after taste.

euniceradio (435) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - AUG 3, 2016
12oz bottle to tulip. Pours clear gold, white soapy head. Aroma of honey, pale oats, lemon, cracker. Taste of same with nice slightly bitter lemongrass finish and nice golden malt sweetness.

huineman (589) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 2, 2016
Draught. Pours pale sparkling transparent golden. White foamy head. Aroma is... mainly gym. I mean sweat, used towel, dirty shirt armpits. I know this is the epitome of a pilsner, but... sweat, yo! Nonetheless it’s easy to drink, refreshing, watery, fizzy and short-lived, so, all in all your average pils with that extra sweaty tinge.

trapped (2240) - New York, TURKEY - AUG 2, 2016
Bottle. Pours rich golden yellow with smallish off-white foamy head, sweetish malt aroma, high carbonation, crisp malt taste, smooth body, abrupt finish. Very smooth and tasty, a great Pilsner.

Shuffle (26) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 1, 2016
A pils alapvetés. Aranyló színű, kellemesen buborékos és frissítően keserű. Finom és raklapnyit meg lehet inni belőle, hogy elteljél az ízével. Nálunk szerencsére a Dreher importálja így egy "hozzáértő" nagy sörgyárunk sem tette tönkre.
