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.

A- soft bready malts, light caramel, hint of earthy hops Ap- nice golden color, white head fades, Flavor- soft and sweet malts up front and last through out. Sweet dissipates and is replaced by hops. Mf- medium low bodied, nice carbonation, Overall- got much better as I tasted/it warmed. Lovely beer. Can see why it's the standard bearer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tomgorm (47) - maroubra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2016
Honey and biscuit aroma, clear gold colour with a strong head. Nice hops with a hint of lime rind and prominent bitterness. Not much else to it, but the balance is fucking perfect. Bravo etc.

MMJL (364) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAR 4, 2016
W zapachu ze szkła ziołowy chmiel, charakterystyczny słód pilzneński i lekki diacetyl. Nalewa się z bardzo wysoką, białą średniopęcherzykową pianą, która dosyć szybko opada. Piwo w barwie jest jasnozłote, całkowicie klarowne. W aromacie ze szkła więcej chmielu niż z butelki - jest ziołowo-trawiasty, przyjemny. Słodowość kojarzy się tutaj ze zbożem czy nawet kukurydzą. Diacetyl w typowo maślanym stylu cały czas utrzymuje się w tle - nie ma tu na tyle intensywnych aromatów by miał się za czym schować. W smaku słodowe z wyraźną i intensywną jak na koncerniaka goryczką - nieco ściągającą. Poza tym piwo jest właściwie puste, nieco wodniste. Pijalne.

Cerbier (640) - - FEB 27, 2016
0,5l Flasche. Goldenes Pils mit schöner Schaumkrone. Riecht intensiv nach Malz. Schmeckt ausgewogen nach Getreide, leicht süßlich nach Malz und nach einer tollen Hopfung.

Hayesryan (15) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - FEB 27, 2016
clean bread/cereal malt aroma with almost no detectable hops; light white head, clear pale-golden; light-medium sweetness, very lightly bitter; light-medium body, creamy, soft carbonation, long easy finish that’s only delicately bitter. Enjoyed after a pizza for lunch which helped cleanse my palate; would gladly pair with pizza or a burger.

Bottle - clear, light lemony appearance. High initial carbonation giving frothy white head. Lemony aroma. Ting on tongue and in mouth - too carbonated. Slight metallic tasting - not enjoyed.

Skunky aroma (green bottle), malt, herbs and a bit of butter. Taste is above average bitter with grains and caramel aftertaste. A very good lager.
