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 wasnt a huge fan of this brew. Came off somewhat skunky. I was somewhat in a daze when drinking it so I think it deserves another tasting.

Poured a light gold with a decently frothy head which was about 2 fingertips in width. A hoppy aroma with a very refreshing taste. Nicely balanced. Good beer.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2011 A fantastic Pilsner,just as strong as I like it, and with a refreshing taste-the best pilsner i’ve ever tasted, with an amazing palate, quite bitter-acidy taste and a perfect head.Great beer...

On Tap, Classic of Pilsner. Colour Gold, Aroma with light hops, and malty notes. Above moderate carbonation. Ideal creamy foam.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2009 Good pilsner deserving of its reputation and popularity, if not a great beer. dominated by hops and malt with some citrus as well.

Pours a beautiful sparkling deep gold with excellent head, and good lace retention. Sweet malty aromas with complex notes of aeromatic hops- suggestions of dusty citrus, anise, and medicinal phenols. Medium bodied with satisfying mouthfeel and effervecence. Sweet malty taste initially, but quickly gives was to a crisp, clean hop bitterness that is very appetizing. Finish is somewhat dry with suggestions of pine, herbs, wet hay, and citrus rind. An important beer for any beer reviewer to be aquainted with; knowing this beer gives interesting insights into how the "pilsner"-style beer has evolved or been interpreted around the world. Sure to remain a beloved world classic, not just because of its historic signifigance, but more importantly because of its truely superb taste. The "Beer of kings" is ten times what the "King of beer" will ever be. Kudos to the marketing team who came up with the six-pack package/box that shields the vulnerable green bottles from damaging light and prevents skunking. Try this beer with a delicate fish plate, or a sophisticated steak dish with grilled asparagus.
