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.

A - Crystal clear golden body with a firm 2 finger white head. S - Sweet grain, chalky lager yeast, a bit of skunk diacetyl as well. T - Sweet roasted grain, good amount of earthy noble hops pop on the tongue, some honey like sweetness at the back end. M - Creamy medium body, wet, low carbonation. Very flavorful for 4.40ABV. Good aftertaste and really refreshing. Serving type: bottle 09-04-2011

Meh. Nothing out of the ordinary but I had to at least try one of them. Lacks in things like flavor.

Just good clean fun here. This was one of the first beers I ever really dug, long before I knew what a hophead was, or that I was one. So this beer is like an old childhood friend that I don’t really talk to anymore. There’s certainly nothing remarkable about it, other than its OG status, but it’s still pretty damn drinkable. The nose isn’t much, but it’s pleasant. Taste is the same: grain and Noble hops, with a finish just dry enough to make a hophead like me want to keep drinking. Like I said, just good clean fun.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2014 0,33l bottle. Bitter-refreshing. Leave the bitterness away and you have a Heineken or Becks or some of this flat-tasted beers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bardzo dobry czeski pilzner, super goryczka, piana, wysycenie, itd. Ogólnie czeskie piwa to potęga światowa.

Whole beer is built on its bitterness, which is quite ok. In color it’s golden, perfectly clear, highly carbonated.

Drank a few pints of this at a bar in Newcastle one night. Really enjoyed this Pilsner, had a strong honey flavouring to it.

33cl @ bottiglia (supermarket). Onestamente non vedo differenza fra questa birra e le classiche industriali da supermercato. Non mi piace.

Bottle to tumbler glass. Pours light golden, quick head, little head. Aroma is bready with floral notes. Taste is nicely balanced light malty sweet and very earthy (floral and herbal) bitter. Light body, lively carbonation and sort of a light honey mouth feel. Finishes sweet with nice Saaz hop complex bitter notes. Dry at the end. This has always been my favorite pilsner.
