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.

I think that I keep getting bad bottles of the stuff, its always skunky. Despite that fact it is a clean and refreshing beer with a good hop bite. Need to try on tap.

I'm not a big fan of pilsner beers but this Bohemian brew sits o.k. with me.

Pours golden with a white head. Nose is skunky. Perfect level of hop taste for a pils with a faint note of malt. The source of imitation for all American macro lagers; they all pale in comparison to the original.

12oz bottle(poured into a 4 oz glass, not my fav style) picked this out for my first Czech beer. Pours pale no head just a white ring. high carbonation. Nose was as most pilsner’s are, all hops and very clean. Mine was a bit skunked as well(damn green bottles) Flavor was skunked. Very hoppy and bitter. still very iron and water. I’m sure this beer is much better on tap. I’ll drink again if i can get an un-skunked bottle. but still not my style.

Not bad. Super light beers aren’t usually my thing but this is something you can drink like soda. No complaints. Just not exciting. Very smooth and clean with good carbonation. This is my first beer of this style, but for a lake of being able to compare it to its own style... compared your typical pale lager, this stuff is pretty good.

Cor amarelo intenso com espuma branca e persistente. Aroma forte de lúpulo, floral, um pouco citrico e herbal. Sabor de lúpulo com amargor bem pronunciado, lembrando uma IPA, mas com o corpo mais leve de uma lager.

Clear golden yellow color with nce white head that disappears quickly. Aroma has malts, hops and grass with little herbs. Taste has bread with malts, light grass with nice hops bite.High carbonation. Good and refreshing pils!

One of my favourites. Sharp, crisp, full flavoured. A saaz hopped beer, with lots of flavour and a pale malty prescence. One can see why this beer is copied so much, especially with a golden amber colour and a great white head.

A beer with many traditions. I like its bitterness - a perfect beer for a hot summerday

Wonderful Saaz! I just love this beer in every way. Beautiful golden color and lacy head - smooth yet spicy - may I have another?
