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.

Butelka. Kolor jasno żółty, krystaliczny. Piana obfita utrzymująca się. Aromat ledwo wyczuwalny słodowy. W smaku goryczka łodygowa na średnim poziomie, zalegająca. .

jpkeskinen (269) - FINLAND - DEC 19, 2014
Drank from a bottle. Quite basic but there is still something more. Maybe the slight bitterness.

0.5l draught. Clear orange color with medium white head. Aroma of burnt malt. Taste is light sour and pleasantly bitter. Appreciate the difference from other beers.

tastybeer (1782) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Can. Pours bright, clear gold, big white head. Some retention/lace. Aroma of grain, grassy/spicy saaz, light soap. Taste is lightly bitter, grassy, grain, bread, some sweetness. Palate is average carbonation, light body, spicy bitter finish. Pretty damn good for $1.25/pint can.

La Pils originelle, un nez expressif et une bouche pleine d’arômes, c’est léger et retenu mais trčs agréable. Bue bouteille ramenée de Tchéquie et bue ŕ la pression au Falstaf, Paris, France, courant 2012.

Keg in the Racehorse, Kettlewell. Golden with a frothy white head. Notes of citrus and caramel. Light and refreshing.

YigSvartka (106) - Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Dark, but transparent golden yellow with many bubbles. No head. Typical cereal oriented pilsner aroma, but heavier emphasis on honey. Much more impressed with the taste. Maintains a smooth and refreshing texture that is true to the style, yet manages to introduce minor complexities. Initially, the stereotypical pilsner flavour prevails with cereals, honey, and grass, but the finish manages to have a slight bitter hop that makes this one unique. Good.

wittz (15) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 14, 2014
Arcszesz-light, sörkorcsolya, verejték (de nem Mister), pici szappan. Szentségtörés: nem kéne névadónak (iskolateremtőnek?) lennie, nem érdemli meg. A villanykörtém színhőmérséklete hagy kívánni valót maga után, így az Appearance necces. Keserűsége macsós sajna. Azért a maga módján ez is egy trip.

KoNrRiI (517) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2014
0.5 can. Clear, gold color and a small, white head. Aroma is not especially alluring - it’s an odd mix of vegetables and honey; while certainly interesting it isn’t something one particularly enjoys. Taste is full of Czech hops and pale malts - quite sweet actually, not the same bitter hops as I remember from a few years back. Medium body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is medium-long and honey-induced again. Overall a nice brew, a classic in its style.
