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 best before 3/13, so I assume this is fresh enough. Pours a deep golden with a pillowy white head. Aroma is a big whiff of skunk that fades to a crisp hoppiness. Taste is some hop tartness and clean, dry malts. Very crisp and refreshing. An excellent pilsner.

LasseVPedersen (175) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - APR 19, 2014
Bottle, 50cl. Pours with a deep, golden, yet light to look at colour with a small, but stable off-white head. Lively carbonation releases as it settles in the glass. Malty, fruity and grassy nose with a biscuits thickness to its creamy honey sensation. Initially light sweet and grass malty pilsener taste, with the addition of spicy saaz hobs and lager yeast. Palate is very soft, delightful, balanced and just plain drinkable. Medium-full bodied for the type. Clean with light bitterness in the dry, spicy end. Hate when brewers claim to be the de facto standard of some beer type, but in this class... well, its definably in the top-tier. Great!

ThirstyBird (1198) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 19, 2014
Pours a rich yellow color with a nice white head. The smell is light malt balanced by grass, crisp hoops. The taste is crisp, grass, light malt ending dry and a bit bitter. Light body with nice active carbonation. A classic.

worldbeertaste (1550) - AUSTRIA - APR 15, 2014
Unpasteurized freshly tapped in Zattl Restaurant in Vienna, dark gold with a lasting, thin, creamy white, frothy head. Smells of fresh malt, wheat and grain and fresh hops. Medium oily body. Tastes of sweet malt, bread and a grassy bitter hop finish. Refreshing. Some lingering grass and bitterness. Would be great with a good burger.

500 ml can. from the LCBO.Yellow straw colour, white head. Lots of bubble streaming up. Smells like grassy malt and bread, some fruity hoppiness to it. Well carbonated. Malt has some nice malty flavour, nice bitter finish. There is also a toasty edge to the taste. Nice Pils.

Rotaldinho (30) - Paris, FRANCE - APR 10, 2014
Dress is golden blond. It has a peppery and fruity nose. In the mouth, it has a good presence, she seems a bit greasy. Its aromas are malty with a hint of honey. The finish is malty and houblonneux (herbaceous aromas). Pilsner Urquell is generous in every way.

Bardzo przyjemne chmielowe aromaty lekko słodowy. Piana średnia. W smaku łagodne chmielowe, nawet nieźle pijalne. Odczucie w ustach śliskie.
