COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

From a bottle. Disappointing skunky and sour. No depth and I had expected a lot in getting it in Czech Republic. I always thought that US versions I had tasted must just have travelled poorly. Nope.

Urquell has gone industrial. Bitter, medicinal Euro-pilsner flavor that’s not especially thirst-quenching. Original formulation can be found in 400-gallon tanks under 3 pubs in Prague, but that’s a different story.

cmacklin (211) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
500 ml can. Pours a clear golden yellow with a medium sized, frothy white head. Aroma has notes of malt, hay, grain and hops. Flavour is light sweet, with caramel malt and a light, dry, hoppy bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation.

Hidden_Pooch (261) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle. Probably one of the best pilsners I have had. With a great toasty malt, with hints of honey, bread, and some nice spicy hop taste. It finishes with a crisp, bitter aftertaste. A touch of skunk though, probably due to the green bottle and how far it came.

fhoublon (312) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
Bouteille de 355 ml achetée dans une SAQ. Dégustée le 17 juillet 1996. Bičre blonde limpide. Mousse peu, col mince et éphémčre. Trčs peu effervescente, bulles moyennes ŕ grosses. Bouquet de houblon et de caramel. Un peu amčre, trčs douce. Léger goűt de céréales grillées et de caramel. Bien équilibrée malgré le faible ABV. Goűt satisfaisant, goűte vraiment la bičre.

Serapac (77) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 22, 2014
On tap from a tank, U Veverky. Pours golden with a creamy thick and lasting head. Aroma of hops, yeast and freshly baked bread, taste likewise. A Czech classic, very difficult to match, although some of the new small breweries try with some success. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mr_Pink_152 (506) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2014
Large supermarket bottle. Pours a golden colour with small white head. Aroma isn’t great. Slightly sweet with a touch of hoppy bitterness in the finish. Light bodied and drinkable.
