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.

Príjemne horké, ako má byť, chutí aj z plechovky, jemne nasladlý doraz, chutné po prehltnutí

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!

Rhombic (108) - SPAIN - AUG 28, 2016
Bottle. Nice concept, very good notion of balancing a decent flavour with the more drinkable qualities of most pilsners. However, there is a difference between acknowledging this and considering the best exponent of a style. While the flavour is complex, it could have been a bit more long lasting. It obviously is one of the better macrobrewed ones, of course. Aromas are nice but somewhat sparse, mostly cereal-ish. Good choice for a pilsner, but there is no point to mindlessly rave about it being perfect, because of the lack of complexity in the aromas and the slightly thin texture. Very good flavour profile though.

BeergeekKorea (107) - SOUTH KOREA - JUN 26, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2015 Draft in the Plzen, Czech about 2 years ago. "Not sticky, rich head and golden colour. A pleasant subtle aroma of floral honey. Refreshing a little sweet malt backbone and flavour of the Saaz above a suitable carbonation, good feeling." - tasting note at that time.

This is THE pilsner. It is unfair to put any other beer in the same category. The hops jump out and grab your nose as soon as the bottle is opened.

GreatSatanUSA (107) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 11, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2003 Light gold color, small lingering head. Malty, some sweetness, good deal of carbonation (not too much, but close), overall fairly tasty.

kragelund (107) - , DENMARK - JUN 12, 2010
(Can 50 cl.) Pours golden with a nice white head. Good body for a 4,4% beer. Nice soft lingering sazz hop bitterness. My favourite pilsener, but better from a bottle and much better from tap in Praque ;-)

Grassy aroma. Light bitter flavor, frothy in the mouth. Finishes with a lasting grapefruit taste.
