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.

Aroma I find to be very slight skunk with malt and toast. Taste is of slight malt with a nice hop kicker with a slight lemony citris taste and quite bitter on the palate. Bitter after taste, slightly sour as well. All around not too bad.

Ljus och klar. Frisk lageröl med en rätt rund avslutning. Trevlig men inte mer, lite bröd och spannmål ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at tabacka. Clear golden colour with huge head off. Aroma of malts, bread. Taste almost the same with grain, full body,bitter aftertaste.

W aromacie mokra szyszka chmielu z lekkim diacetylem i słodowym zacięciem. Piwo barwy złotej, z ładną białą czapą piany. Drobiniki dwutlenku węgla buzują w szkle. Słodowo - ziołowe, lekkie i orzeźwiające. Pije się naprawdę świetnie, lecz przydałaby się goryczka trochę wyższa i byłoby naprawdę okej. Oglnie na plus.

Aromat: karton a daleko w tle słd, po ogrzaniu gotowane warzywa Wygląd: barwa żłta, piana drobnobańkowa, biała, szybko opada, słaby lacing Smak: karton i tu już wyraźna słodowość, skontrowana niską, acz przyjemną goryczką Podniebienie: średnia pełnia, nagazowanie wysokie, generalnie dość pijalne Podsumowanie: jak na koncerniaka całkiem znośne, ale te wady na Boga...

Some hop in aroma, grassy, malt. Same in taste. Chmielowe, trawiasty aromat uzupe?niony diacetylem i mokra sciera. Ma to swj urok. W smaku podobie. Dobrze pijalny pils.

mrjez (313) - Osaka, JAPAN - APR 20, 2016
Drunk countless times, this time from can. Noticeable aroma of grassy hop, malt, light hay. Has an oily feel, tingly peppery middle carrying a light citrus with the grassy notes and earthy malt flavour. Great feel on a warm day, crisp and dry, lingering doughy notes. Harkens back to lager sessions of my youth, in a great way. A light refreshing Pilsner.

Very yeasty aroma like dough. Pours golden with a thin, white head. Nicely balanced bitter and sweet flavours. Light bodied, thin and a bit lively. The best mainstream beer.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2016 11.2-ounce bottles. It has a sort of skunky aroma, but it has a rich flavor that has little bitterness. I tend to prefer drinks that have a little more abv but this excellent beer has gotten me to try out more pilsners.
