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.

I didn’t care for this beer to much, too bitter with a bad aftertaste.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2004 Very nice pilsner, true to style (oh derrr)! Moderate hoppy flavour with a dry bitter finish. Gee the water in Plzen does taste good.

Pours a thin golden color with an accompanying thin head. Aromas of sazz hops and a hint of malts. Tastes of a nice creamy bitter hopness that carries through to the finish with a slight maltiness. Like Miller Lite with more of a backbone.

Soft aroma. Golden colour with low or no-foam. Bitter flavor with bitter notes in palate too. Fresh beer to drink with any meal.

One of my Favorite Lagers. Nice head, Soft but not too much. You can taste and smell the malt, and there is a great balance between bitterness and floral hops with a tiny sweet touch. Definetly a beer for a hot day, but one that you can really enjoy.

Haven’t had this one since the 90s. I think the last time I had it it was skunky. I made sure to carefully select this one from a case so it would have minimal light damage. No skunky taste at all. Very drinkable and not nearly as bitter as most pilsners seem to be these days. Thanks to Michael Jackson’s "The Beer Hunter" for getting me excited to try this one again.

Very refreshing beer! Never had the opportunity to try on tap, nonetheless good bottled beer. Not as skunky as heineken,light yellow and sligthly floral aroma. No strong aftertaste.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2007 A potentialy great beer which is almost always skunked by the time it gets to the states. When they learn to use brown bottles they might make more money. The non-skunky ones I’ve had have a very refined pilsner malt aroma perfectly balanced with fine noble hops.
