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.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2013 Pours golden with a white medium head which is gone quickly. Aroma of some malt, grass and hops, very subtle though. Taste is refreshing, grassy, hoppy and malts. More bitter than your average pils and tastier too. It’s good but nothing really special.

Good pilsner. Nothing that remarkable, but the original. It’s a clean, refreshing drink.

16 oz can from Total Wine. It’s a cliche, but I can’t believe I haven’t rated this. I’ve certainly drank enough of it but I don’t know that I’ve bought it at the store. It’s a hotel bar savior when the next best thing is bass ale or sam adams boston lager. Beautiful pour, glowing light amber with a lovely fine-textured fluffy head. Elegant streams of bubbles rising through my glass. Nose is a grassy and just a hint sour, flavor is pure pils all the way. Good noble hops, not to aggressively hop-oily, lightly bready malts instead of crackers all up in your face. Yeah, mouthfeel is a bit thin but how much are you going to complain at 4.4%? That’s the whole damn point of a refreshing summer pils. Delicious. I should rotate bitburger out and rotate this in, I think.

Gangstergafje (218) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2015
The beer has a dark color, with a little hint of orange. The Beer looks like morning urine, exactly the same color and the same little foam on top of it. The smell is very bitter, which is very nice. There is also a little sweetness in the smell. The taste has the same bitterness as the smell. The bitterness is clearly caused by the hops. There is also a nice citrusy hop taste. Very nice. The beer has a nice gassiness, which results in a nice palate.

Clear golden coloured with a small white head. Aroma of malts and hops. Flavour of fruits, malts and hops. Dry hoppy finish.

A very pleasant beer. Sort of my definition of a good beer. Golden color, white lasting head, crisp bitterness. All good things.

visionthing (3526) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2015
50cl on tap at some random place in Kaplice, Czech. Clear golden with a white head. Moderate malty aroma with a hint of fruits, nice herbal and grassy notes. Moderate sweet with balanced flavours and a fine bitterness. Certainly a decent pilsner and really nice still when it’s fresh from tap. Nice and sessionable thirst quencher.

Gold, very bubbly, with a medium white head. Aroma is yeasty, slightly skunky despite a NOV2215 date. Flavor is pretty good, though. Good Pils.
