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.

imdownthepub (11135) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2004
Bottled, Pasteurised. Golden beer with thick white head, highly carbonated. I really enjoyed this pilsner, great clean dry flavours, sharp and definite in its aims. Refreshing and juicy, pretty decent.

Pinball (11065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2008
nice pilsener aroma, quite strong aroma for a macro. white head, relatively large, darkish clear yellow. Looks great. bitter taste (like pilsene) but a little more sweetness and bitterness than the average pilsener. aftertaste is sweet combined with pilsener. aftertaste lasts for a while. Great taste for a "low" alc.% beer.

bierkoning (10864) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2002
Malty and hoppy aroma and taste with some hay. It starts with some malty, almost buttery sweetness on the tongue, immediately followed by a hoppy, but soft bitterness. Long hopbitter finish. Good pilsener, but doesn’t live up completely to its reputation.

Lubiere (10784) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2005
Golden pils with thin white head. Grassy grainy malt aroma with nice crisp hops. Saaz hops come out of the crisp chalky malt, nicely balanced. Medium bodied. Classic.

Green bottle poured a clear gold with a minimal white head. Aromas of some skunk, sweet malt and and some floral hops. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, a bit of carmel, some earthy hops with a pleasent bitter finish.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2004 Bottled: Light golden with a nice head. Has a sweet malty aroma. The flavour is balanced and hoppy. Great bitterness in the aftertaste. Very good pilsener. Dosn"t pretend to be more than it is.
