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.

golden Pilsner, a minimal head when poured into mug, medium sweetness and body, average carbonation. First actual quality beer ever had. Definitely enjoyed it.

When it comes to pilzner nothing comes even close it Urquell. It's one of very few well made mass produced beers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My thing is darks, stouts, and porters. But, every once in a while I like to try a few Pilseners. As far as Pils go, this is one of my favorites. Crisp and flavorful. I have tried it cold and also at around 45 deg or so. I think I like it better at the warmer temp. A friend tells me that if you ever get to Europe, try to get to the Czech Republic and visit the town of Pilsen. It’s where it all started for Pilsner beer and you can tour the factory and taste a fresh batch.

Too much of a skunky aroma, and watery yellow color, but good flavor...bad aftertaste though.

I poured a glass of this for a friend and upon tasting it he looked surprised and claimed that it tastes exactly how you would imagine beer should taste. Nice thick head. Clear and inviting with nice colour and aroma. Very enjoyable with a strong taste that finishes clean. Nice on its own or with food. Versatile brew that is a great one to give those who have never tasted anything but macros.

good pilsner from its birth place. classic pilsner taste, very hoppy, little skunky after taste bu the clean crisp taste comes from a very well balanced beer. good stuff.
