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.

Pours clear golden colour with firstly compact, creamy white head, which quickly vanish. Aroma of grain, similar are flavours. Taste is sweet, of grain, barley malts with nice hoppy note in finish. Low carbonation, medium bitterness. Nice little hoppy aftertaste. Alcohol abv. is low but you can feel the presence. Good pilsener.

A nice surprise. Honey and grass is obvious then a waft of hops. Leaves real bitterness at the back of the mouth and sweetness in the lips. Bitterness is just this side of too much. Carbonation is light for the style, generates a head but it doesn’t stick around long. At only 4.4% it tastes pretty grown up.

Jabah (177) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 15, 2015
I guess this may be considered a semi-premium beer. Good with dinner if out to eat and they don’t have micros, etc. The typical yellowish-gold color of a pilsner. Pretty light texture/appearance. Medium carbonation with light white head. Sweet, grainy, malty taste. A nice crisp change of pace beer.
