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.

Aroma of hops and malt. Flavor of hops. Medium bitterness. It’s refreshing.

Good skunky and fresh aroma. Highly recommend as a chaser for old grand dad... Trust me. Bought this as a one off in the supermarket in USA. At least as good as the Czech Budweiser I had in Poland ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IPALover (63) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Consumed in Prague from a bottle. This beer is a light golden colored pilsner with a light malty aftertaste with little hop character. This is a nice example of a mass produced pilsner and would be nice on a hot day but isn’t an overly impressive tasting beer for my tongue.

Diablo9845 (62) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2007
UPDATED: APR 25, 2007 Bottle at The Spoke. Was expecting a lot coming into this beer. Very strong, bitter aroma and a very hop filled taste. Little too highly carbonated for my liking. Poured a golden yellow with a small head. Average at best, but I’m not a big fan of pilsners.

Maltybones (62) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 17, 2007
500ml can. Nice golden colour with a pure white, quickly receeding head. Very nice floral hoppy aroma with grassy citrus notes. Taste has a slight malty sweetness, kind of like Wonderbread at the start, but is quickly overpowered by the long bitter hop finish. Mouthfeel is thin but about as robust as posible from a pils. Refreshing but not outstanding

Excellent with kielbasa and rye bread and other beer foods, this beer pours a bright golden yellow with an oily pearly white head. It is very bubbly. Smells of hops. Goes down nicely with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Not my favorite beer, and may not be perfect by itself, but good with food and for the pure novelty of drinking the original pilsner.

Poured clear pale yellow, with lots of bubbles and little head stayed. Smelled of hops and bread. Nice clean taste. A lot of carbonation. Not really my style, but great as pilsners go.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2008 Nice amber color. Excellent ballance, not too carbonated, moderately bitter via the awesome Saaz hops. Very lively beer! The best pilsner in my opinion. I can’t imagine it any better than it already is. (Kind of sad that this brewery is under the ownership of bullshit SABMiller now)
