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.

0,5 l glass at Pilsner Urquell brewpub in Plzen. Amazing experience. Golden colour with average head.Light resin and herbal hops moderate malty and sweet. Good body and nice carbo. Bottled doesn’t taste so good.

Aroma suave. Coloração dourada. Colar de boa duração, considerando que é uma pilsen. Sabor equilibrado. Leve amargor ao final. Muitíssimo boa cerveja. Excelente pilsen!

Good pilsner with not too high bitterness. Smooth to drink. Malty and bit diacetyl.

Slautar (180) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 11, 2015
To chyba jedyne dobre piwo z wyraźną goryczką, które kupić można niemal wszędzie. Czasem jest to jedyne piwo nadające się do picia w lokalu i głównie za to je sobie cenię (+2 do Overall za dostępność).

As the description says, it is called the "model of meter" among beers for a reason. There could be some better pilseners and definitely many worse, but Urquell will always be the standard. A good beer with a bittery kick in the aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2015 Kedvenc söreim egyike, Magyarországon gyakorlatilag csak ezt vásárolom, mivel ezt nem vizezik az idióta adószabályok miatt. Kesernyés, igazi szomjoltó nedű és senki nem panaszkodott még arra, hogy nagyobb mennyiség után gyomorpanaszokat okozott volna. - One of my favorite beers. In Hungary I always buy this beer because this one is not "watered-up" like beers that are produced in Hungary due to the idiotic tax-rules. Tasty bitter, a perfect drink to expel thirst, and no one had complained about stomach harm after a greater quantity.

Nice and bitter pils. Lacy and soft with lots of bitterness. Light body with a soft palate and long lasting delicate bitterness. A classic good just about anytime.

McWorta (1031) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 5, 2015
Clear golden colour with a small frothy white head. Light straw-biscuit notes with herbal-floral impressions on the nose. Bit lively, light-medium bodied whilst showing a light bit thin texture. Good balance between sweet and herbal light resinous bitterness of the hops. Short-medium finish. Refreshing.
