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.

Kind of skunky, bready, and a malty sweetness. Crisp and skunky, but not terrible.

Világos sörökben nálam ez nagyon viszi a pálmát. Ugyan kevés világosat szeretek, inkább fekete és barna sör párti lennék. A boltban, sok helyen is kapható, nagyon kellemes, lágy utóízzel rendelkezik. Keserű, de nem epekeserű íze vanm jó aromája és egész karakteres az illata. Ráadásul pénztárcabarát sör.

ljthiessen (307) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle. Grainy aromas, and a touch skunky. Perhaps not the freshest bottle. Flavour was slightly better than expected. Some sweet grainy malt with a light hoppy character. Light carbonation. Better than some of its competition, but still not great.

It has an aroma of sweet malts and biscuit, turns into grassy hops. It appears with a short white head and pretty golden colour. The taste is sweet and a German-like bitter finish. It is also full in the mouth despite the low alcohol level, nice carbonation. A very good pils.

HIGHB4LL (421) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Wilbur’s. Appearance: Finger white head, golden yellow, clear, Aroma: malty sweetness, light caramel, leafy yeast, bread, floral hops. Palate: light body, average carbonation, bitter finish, thin texture. Taste: big malt sweetness into medium hops bitterness, maybe slightest astringency in the transition. Overall, very nice pilsner, still not my style though.

sudomorph (487) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2014
500ml can. Pours a crystal clear, golden yellow with a prolific, two finger, white head that fades quickly. Aroma has big malty notes balanced with some traditional hops. Very slightly fruity. Taste is balanced. Malty notes with a hint of fruityness. Medium-full body and carbonation. Fuller mouth feel. Not really watery for a 4.4% beer. Overall pretty tasty. Not my favorite beer but certainly not bad. The original pils!

smaynard6000 (602) - Apopka, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2014
bottle. Pours a golden color with minimal white head. Aroma is skunky. Slightly sweet with some hoppy bitterness in the finish. Light bodied and drinkable. Decent if you can get past the aroma.

Sjohnh (98) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Had this on draught at a Lebanese restaurant and it stood up surprisingly well with the food. Clear golden colour, well carbonated, white head. More aroma than you usually get from a pilsner, floral notes. Tasty, with grass, hops, bread coming through. With so much dross around, it’s nice to be reminded what a good pilsner tastes like.

Of course skunk on the nose. Then golden grain fields with a hint of maple syrup. Finally generous saaz hops. Czechs make the best golden lagers.
