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.

Tasted 9/3/11. 12oz bottle. JAN1112 21:47. Pours filtered and golden hued. A shade lighter than the Czechvar I had right before. Moldy white head. Aromas of cereal grains, but no trace of a hop profile in the olfactory. Medium bodied and a more rounded effervescence than the Czechvar. It has a nice, dry body to it, but it also comes with a bit of diactyl. Mildly sticky with a decent punch of grassy hops. A lingering astringency mingles with the carbonation and the hops to add to the palate and flavor profile. Solid, but from what I just experimented, Czechvar wins.

Tap at tabacka. Clear golden colour with huge head off. Aroma of malts, bread. Taste almost the same with grain, full body,bitter aftertaste.

MikeBeermaster (184) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - APR 24, 2016
W aromacie mokra szyszka chmielu z lekkim diacetylem i słodowym zacięciem. Piwo barwy złotej, z ładną białą czapą piany. Drobiniki dwutlenku węgla buzują w szkle. Słodowo - ziołowe, lekkie i orzeźwiające. Pije się naprawdę świetnie, lecz przydałaby się goryczka trochę wyższa i byłoby naprawdę okej. Ogólnie na plus.

mclaren14 (52) - ŁódĽ, POLAND - APR 21, 2016
Aromat: karton a daleko w tle słód, po ogrzaniu gotowane warzywa Wygląd: barwa żółta, piana drobnobańkowa, biała, szybko opada, słaby lacing Smak: karton i tu już wyraźna słodowość, skontrowana niską, acz przyjemną goryczką Podniebienie: średnia pełnia, nagazowanie wysokie, generalnie dość pijalne Podsumowanie: jak na koncerniaka całkiem znośne, ale te wady na Boga...

Some hop in aroma, grassy, malt. Same in taste. Chmielowe, trawiasty aromat uzupe?niony diacetylem i mokra sciera. Ma to swój urok. W smaku podobie. Dobrze pijalny pils.

mrjez (313) - Osaka, JAPAN - APR 20, 2016
Drunk countless times, this time from can. Noticeable aroma of grassy hop, malt, light hay. Has an oily feel, tingly peppery middle carrying a light citrus with the grassy notes and earthy malt flavour. Great feel on a warm day, crisp and dry, lingering doughy notes. Harkens back to lager sessions of my youth, in a great way. A light refreshing Pilsner.

Very yeasty aroma like dough. Pours golden with a thin, white head. Nicely balanced bitter and sweet flavours. Light bodied, thin and a bit lively. The best mainstream beer.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2016 11.2-ounce bottles. It has a sort of skunky aroma, but it has a rich flavor that has little bitterness. I tend to prefer drinks that have a little more abv but this excellent beer has gotten me to try out more pilsners.
