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.

Pilsner Urquell: a Pilsner from the Czech Republic, the first of it’s kind. Minimal head but pours smoothly when done properly. Aroma of sweet but light malt and very strong nose. Probably the best beer to drink in big mouthfuls as the flavors really sweeps out of the beer. Some may say it’s very similar to a Bud or Miller Light. It does have a very similar taste but is far superior. Great beer if you would want to play Beer Pong and show your great beer knowledge and taste to your friends. As a beer it definitely pairs well with Lays Salt & Vinegar potato chips because it almost has that sour taste of vinegar. A great blend.

From the tap in a pilsner urquell restaurant in Prague. Clear golden with a glorious white head. Lemon, hay, apples on the nose. Delicious light maltiness on the palate. Perfect accompaniment to my pilsner goulash.

A 500ml can canned on 2nd February 2016 and poured into a Riedel weizen glass. It poured an extremely clear golden colour with a three finger white head that had decent retention and left sparse spotty lacing. Grassy and honey aromas with a hint of grain and floral. Taste was sweet honey and grain with some biscuit, toast and grass plus a hint of bitterness. Crisp, light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall a nice refreshing easy to drink Pilsner.

Mój ulubiony masowo produkowany Pilsner. Bardzo przyjemna goryczka, ładna barwa, jasna piana. My favorite mass-produced Pilsner. Very pleasant bitterness, pretty color, light foam.

For some time he had kept beer and I refused to try it. It really is not my style of beer, soft dough, without complexity, a very flat beer, not evolution. I will not repeat.

It is one of my fav beers. This is an original "basic beer", with one of the best taste, and appearance. I love it. Egyik kedvenc söröm, alap sör. Imádom.
