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.

A very fine pils in my opinion, from the style’s home. Nicely hopped, and well-carbonated. My favorite international of this style.

Bottle. Nice and clear with a big head that doesn’t last long. I’m not a fan of pilsner in general, but I thought that this beer was very good. I find the after-taste a bit strong for my ale-indulged palate, but I think it tasted great with my heavier flavored burger.

A very refreshing beer that goes down easily. Great appearence, satisfying head, generous tast; unique, unto itself. I enjoyed this, though it is slightly overrated.

This beer pours as a clear, gold to light amber liquid with lots of bubbles and a minimal bubbly head. The aroma is of roasted hops and a bit of herbs, maybe grass. It smells like a Pilsner. The taste is strongly bitter with a long, mildly bitter aftertaste. I would call this a light bodied beer. It has a slick texture and is very effervescent in a way that reminds me of soda water. Overall this is a nice bubbly pilsner with the expected bitterness. I enjoyed this beer and would definitely drink it again even though pilsner isn’t my favorite beer type.

so this is the Pilsner that started all pilsners... crisp and clean but tastes like liquified toast and has a gag tickle from where the toast is burnt... guess I’m not much for pilsners.

(draught) Compared to the bottled version, draught is a livelier, more mellow (maltier?) drink. The hops are much further back in the mix, but with the same clarity of overall taste. A reminder of what a pleasant, easy-to-drink beer should be. As they say themselves, a benchmark.

Too long ago to remember much about this beer. I do remember that it is good.
