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.

The beer has a dark color, with a little hint of orange. The Beer looks like morning urine, exactly the same color and the same little foam on top of it. The smell is very bitter, which is very nice. There is also a little sweetness in the smell. The taste has the same bitterness as the smell. The bitterness is clearly caused by the hops. There is also a nice citrusy hop taste. Very nice. The beer has a nice gassiness, which results in a nice palate.

Clear golden coloured with a small white head. Aroma of malts and hops. Flavour of fruits, malts and hops. Dry hoppy finish.

A very pleasant beer. Sort of my definition of a good beer. Golden color, white lasting head, crisp bitterness. All good things.

visionthing (3524) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2015
50cl on tap at some random place in Kaplice, Czech. Clear golden with a white head. Moderate malty aroma with a hint of fruits, nice herbal and grassy notes. Moderate sweet with balanced flavours and a fine bitterness. Certainly a decent pilsner and really nice still when it’s fresh from tap. Nice and sessionable thirst quencher.

Schönes klares goldgelb mit etwas Schaum, hopfig-bitter, etwas süßlich, würzig, spritzig. Saazer Hopfen.

ZacM612 (299) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Gold, very bubbly, with a medium white head. Aroma is yeasty, slightly skunky despite a NOV2215 date. Flavor is pretty good, though. Good Pils.

BeergeekKorea (22) - SOUTH KOREA - JUN 26, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2015 Draft in the Plzen, Czech about 2 years ago. "Not sticky, rich head and golden colour. A pleasant subtle aroma of floral honey. Refreshing a little sweet malt backbone and flavour of the Saaz above a suitable carbonation, good feeling." - tasting note at that time.

Dorada, ligeramente burbujeante y con bonita espuma de dos dedos bastante duradera. Aroma ligeramente lupulado. Marcado sabor a cereal. Amargor equilibrado.

Jimbo2 (38) - Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2015
Well, its a pilsner, but one of the better ones. Fairly hoppy for its kind, certainly more than most industrialized pilsners.

Dourada,límpida,espuma com boa formaçăo e manutençăo,aroma sensacional com floral dos lúpulos Saaz vindo a tona,no sabor tăo bom quanto o aroma destaque-se o belo equilíbrio entre o dulçor do malte Pilsen e o amargor e refrescante dos lúpulos,corpo médio,,alta carbonaçăo,final seco ligeiramente amargo. Ótima cerveja,uma referęncia para o estilo.
