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.

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.

Ciemnozłoty kolor, nikła piana. Aromat słodowy, niestety bardzo wyczuwalne miodowe nuty (wynikające chyba z utlenienia). Przyjemna słodowa pełnia smaku i wyraźna chmielowa goryczka. Gdyby nie ewidentna wada, ocena z pewnością byłaby wyższa

Overraskende god tjekkisk pilsner. Absolut vćrd at drikke. Lidt kedelig i farven.

willisread (203) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle poured into a shaker pint. Pours a clear golden straw color with a nice white head. Floral hop aroma present. Tastes of pear, citrus and grain. Slightly sweet with a dry crisp finish. A little skunky as well. Solid for the style.

Happy to drink this Czech first pilsner beer in the Czech capital of Praha. A must! And pretty good for a lager beer.

This classic beer is still very well. Clear malt and hops aroma and taste, nice bitter finish. And it reminds me of times spent in ČR’s pivnice.

The Urquel is the classic Pilsner, a bit more bitter and more aftertaste than some others, but a standard go to Pilsner on the way to other beer varietals.

12oz to pilsner glass. Pours a clear golden color. Head is effervescent, thin, white, and lacy. Aroma is grain and slight skunkiness. Taste is skunky, bitter, but has a clean sharp bite. Mouthfeel is smooth and crisp.
