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.

Bottle Golden clear colour with a nice big long lasting white head. Bit fruity hoppy aroma. Flavour is refreshing, crispy and hoppy, some sweet maltiness. Dry hoppy average aftertaste. Great pilsener!

madsberg (10140) - Sřborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2002
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.

Maria (10133) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2008
Light amber with a nice head and a nice hoppy aroma. The flavour is hoppy with a very nice bitterness. Pure hops - in the Czech way. (Early rating, too short)

rlgk (10119) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2005 Dark golden color with a nice head. This is a really good beer, but im not surprised since it is czech. It has a fresh and clean taste with a nice bitter finish.

imdownthepub (10022) - 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.

bierkoning (9999) - 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.

Travlr (9997) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Clear gold with thin white head. Mild malty aroma. Bitter taste and finish, decent body. Not bad. Better on draught.

Lubiere (9790) - 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.

Ratman197 (9550) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2006
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.
