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.

Well, I was kind of disappointed with than one. I was expecting something really surprising. But... Yep, this is good, high-quality, drinkable but, not my cup of tea. Even though, one of the best pilsener.

Derbeth (280) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle. Golden colour, clear, medium size head, mostly diminishing, showing fair lacing. Aroma is quite intensive, mostly of herbs, plus some malt and wort. Light bitterness. Good one.

A must. Easy to find, easy to drink, easy to enjoy always. The no filtrated version is incredible!

Marstonlad (402) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Pours golden with a medium-sized frothy head. Aroma features a combination of pale, grainy maltiness and herbal hoppiness; the balance is slightly on the malty side though. Taste is dryish with light bitterness rising toward finish. Maltiness is round, the palate nicely smooth. Light to medium body. The original Czech pils, no more, no less.

Great Pilsner, obviously the premium selection of Pilsner for SABMiller. It does have a quite a strong hop flavour that lingers in the mouth, but it can still quite easily be consumed en masse. Best consumed in Czech Republic :)

Botella 33cl. De color dorado y con buena espuma. Muy buena compensación de sabores, con predominio de la malta y toques ligeros a madera que quedan muy compensados. Una muy buena pilsen que me ha sorprendido gratamente.
