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.

Bottle. Warm clear golden colour. Good white head. Aroma of spices, grass and pils malt. Flavour of sweet pils malt. Some bitterness but still really smooth. Short fresh bitter finish. Medium body and carbo. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radio_nowhere (1014) - Maryland, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Draft at BJ’s Brewhouse in Frederick, MD. Served in a footed pils glass, clear darker golden color with white head. Aroma of toast malt sweetness, grass and fruity yeasty note. Taste adds notes of hay and earthy bitterness. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp with light grass hop bitterness. Very nice flavorful pils.

UXO (629) - CANADA - FEB 10, 2015
Pours clear pale gold with one finger of loose white head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is pale malt, honey, grassy hops, bready yeast. (6/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Medium to light body, moderate to low carbonation, off-dry crisp finish. (3/5) I’m not a huge fan of pilseners in general, finding them to be boring at best. This is actually a pretty good example of the style, but still pretty darned boring. Better than I was expecting it to be, but still not something I’d necessarily go looking for. However, when considering “single cans in your local’s cooler”, you could do a lot worse. (12/20)

PabloZab (261) - Wroclaw, POLAND - FEB 9, 2015
Piwo zlociste, klarowne z ladna biala piana lekko oblepiajaca szklo. Aromat slodowo-chmielowy, swiezy, przyjemny. W smaku tresciwe, orzezwiajace, slodowe z przyjemna goryczka i lekka slodkoscia na koncu. Lagodny posmak goryczki przyjemnie drazniacej podniebienie. Nasycenie srednie do wysokiego, w zaleznosci od sposobu nalewania. Dobrze pijalne, idealne na gorace dni.

growler6 (30) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Slightly sweet and grassy. Trace of saltiness. Clean finish. Very drinkable and refreshing. Excellent. Not always consistent but this is Pilsner Urquell at it’s best. I hope it stays this way.

PauloAG (124) - BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2015
330cc bottle. Nice malts and hops. Sweetness and bitterness nicely balanced. Some grassy hoppy hints and that nice softness and crispness. A Pilsner at it s best.

Bottle 500 ml. Some grassy pilsner aroma, with distinguishable hops and malts. Clear golden colour, frothy head. Nice bitterness, quite an aftertaste.
