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.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2015 Draft in the Plzen, Czech about 2 years ago. "Not sticky, rich head and golden colour. A pleasant subtle aroma of floral honey. Refreshing a little sweet malt backbone and flavour of the Saaz above a suitable carbonation, good feeling." - tasting note at that time.

Well, its a pilsner, but one of the better ones. Fairly hoppy for its kind, certainly more than most industrialized pilsners.

Ótima cerveja,uma referęncia para o estilo.

Yellow colour, creamy white head, aroma of saaz hops, hay, grass, lager yeast. Taste is slightly bitter, very refreshing and drinkable, light body slick oily texture, average to fizzy carbonation. One of the best pilsners when it is from a tank.

330 mL bottle. Pours golden with a thin white head. Simple cereals on the nose with modest breadiness, floral Saaz hops with light perfume tones. Grain sweetness up front with a lightly bitter finale. Light bodied, average carbonation and a clean aftertaste. Too bad American macro doesn’t taste this good.

Drank at S&G big pilsener tasting, blindly comparing 24 pilseners. Taste for most pilseners was the same, some grains, bit hoppy, quite malty and mostly bit metallic. On this tasting, this was the worst of all... Bottle was preserved well and didn’t expire... Hope to try it again though, since other ratings are better

Not green bottle, brown bottle. 11.2 oz americanized and lost it’s aroma and the high notes (sweet?). Bitter after taste and watered down. Who changed the original, this tastes awful. It has gone the way of the American Becks which is not the German Becks, "German style" means not good!!!!!!

Tried this on draft in the Czech Republic far too many times. A mild lager with a distinctive herb flavour, not overpowering though.One of the best lagers I’ve tasted.
