Nice pilsner. Goes down well. Not too much bite to it, although my wife could do without it

I don’t care for whatever standing it has among ’beer critics,’ this was bad. Perhaps the batch I had was skunky. But I’m not willing to give it a second shot. There are too many beers in the world to pass up, instead.

The original by which all others are measured. Excellent is the only way to describe it. A good beer to drink when youare actually thirsty.I noticed someone mentioned not getting a hang over whn drinking it. A point of interest, alot of American brews use preservatives, namely Formaldehyde. And this is the reason for alot of hangovers concerning beers. When drinking a german beer, look for the German purity act on the label, and seek an expiration date. Beer should expire like anything else that has been cooked. In Germany most brewers brew for a local populaion not the country. So Beer is always fresh. The larger brewery’s have little notches in the label so you can see when it expires. just a little something extra.

I love this beer. It’s like Heineken made right. The only problem is it is too expensive...but damn tasty!!

Fantastic example and worthy benchmark for all pilsners. Malty, mildly bitter, golden and crisp. Tastes clean and refreshing. Bold, too.

What can I say, in general Czech beers are good, in fact from most of my ratings I realise I tend to select them for drinking. This beer has a great taste, quite strong actually for a light beer. Goes down smooth.

The PilsnerUrquell has a transparent and yellow appearance. Its head is subtle. The aroma of the beer is mild and a bit hoppy. Overall it is free of any pungent or defective odors. The palate of the beer is light but slightly watery. The PilsnerUrquell has a slightly bitter flavor with a mild finish. Hints of lemon show through. The flavors are pretty one-demensional but are light on the tongue. Overall the PilsnerUrquell is a good light pilsner.

Nice light golden color. Scent of skunk with light spice. Taste is skunk as first but then has a sweet almost fruit tinge to it. Dry mouth finish. Overal a very good pilsner.

This is one of my favourite beers!!! Even though it is only 4.4%abv, it still has a very full flavour to it. Delicious!!!
