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. Pours clear with fluffy white head. A drinkable pilsener for me with a decent balance.

Draft Asbury Festhalle. Clear gold. Corn honey aroma. Nothing special but, a crisp, light go-to easy Pilsner to start off the night. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Is the benchmark of the style - no? A safe bet when choosing a hot weather thirst quencher. Might be questionable otherwise...

Bardzo ładny aromat słodowy, lekko miodowy co wskazuje na utlenienie. Kolor ciemniejsza słoma, klarowne, piana średnio zdobi szkło, raczej niska. Smak to wyraźny słód, także występuje nuta chlebowo miodowa, goryczka średnia do niskiej. Piwo troszkę zbyt mocno wysycone i goryczka zalega. Ogólnie piwo jest utlenione, w smaku poza zalegającą goryczką nic nie oferuje. Chciałbym kiedyś spróbować tego piwa z beczki, na pewno byłoby o niebo lepiej.

Flaska frćn SB. Klar gyllengul färg med vit skumkrona. Frisk brödig doft. Smak av bröd, äpple och pilsnermalt. En fräsch pilsner helt enkelt.

330ml bottle into glass. Grassy hop nose with a little spice/sweetness. Inviting. Pours amber with sudsy head. Taste is clean bitterness. Finish is a little malt, then lasting citric bitters. Nice.

robto (35) - Belas, PORTUGAL - JAN 20, 2015
50cl bottle at home. It pours a clear golden colour with a very large fluffy white head. Aroma is of a very crisp pilsner malts, floral hops with some citrus. Taste is crisp and with a clean flavour, bready malts, hoppy bitterness, little citrus and some sweetness. It has a light body and heavily carbonated. This beer is considered by many as the original pilsner and among the best of their style. And in my view, it well deserves its reputation. I would drink it again.

Przylus (164) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 18, 2015
Aromat słodowy, ale i z nutami świeżego chmielu, lekko ziołowy, trawiasty. Barwa ciemnozłota, klarowne. Piana drobna, wysoka, ale krótka. W smaku miodowe, ziołowe, dosyć pełne, za mocno nagazowane. Niezła goryczka.

WYGLĄD: Barwa żółta, klarowne. Piana drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, szybko opada, oblepia szkło. AROMAT: W aromacie głównie słodowość i diacetyl, nuty ziołowo-trawiaste, gdzieś tak hen daleko czeski chmiel się pojawia. SMAK: Masło, miód i goryczka, czyli zabójcza mieszanka. Do tego piwo jest słodkie, goryczka średnia, zalegająca.

I just dont like pilsner very much I think. The flavor was ok but not great, even from a tap

Thought the bitburger right before was nicer and slightly hoppier. Also malts were more protruding in the German bier.
