Great beer, a sharp, slightly hoppy pilsner that I enjoy, even though half the bottles I get are skunked. Why green bottles? Grr...

Ok it is a very hard to rate this beer. Because rating a bottle would not be to fair especialy if you find one after 5 monts from production date... Going to one of the best beerpubs in Prague would not reflect what Pilsner Urquell is in general... Soooo after a looot of glases I had during my entire drinking beer life (17 years) I am sitting in an average restaurant close to Wenceslas square rating this one... Main think you notice the foam is doing weird map disapearing fast. Aroma is hops. Taste...sorry after few pilsner style beer in microbreweries this one as main taste has sweetnes. It is no bitter for me. Decent carbonation. Very drinkable. The official description is just arrogance for me! Eapecialy in the situation when this beer is not brewed in Pilsen ONLY anymore... There are sooo many better pilsners in microbreweries...unpasteurized, unfiltered, without any aditives, clear, bitter, drinkable... Please keep in mind I am rating an average restaurant Pilsner Urquell.

Unpasteurized edition, 1L bottle. BBD 3/12/14. Very clear light golden with medium bubbly off-white head. Aroma of honey, floral, some graininess. Clean flavor, slightly sweet, moderate sourness, notes of honey, floral, corn sugar, malty, bitter-sweet finish, not so pleasant bitter aftertaste. Light carbonation, light-bodied. Very easy to drink.

Faktycznie, jako wzór i oryginał piw typu pilzner wypada znakomicie. Mimo wszystko to wciąż tylko i wyłącznie pilzner ;) Uwaga na zieloną butelkę - trzymana na świetle powoduje bardzo szybko zmianę aromatu i smaku piwa.

On tap it just looks fantastic, great nose of hops and fruits.
Fruity and hoppy taste, my first thougt is always like this tastes so good if you’re thirsty. Long lasting bitter finish.
When the place takes care of their tap it just tastes fantastic, the best pilsener to me. Was at a few places where it was considerably less tasty, so while in czech republic it’s probably worth to find a serious pub to have it..

La pilsner ceca per eccellenza. Prodotta ancora utilizzando buoni malti e luppoli abbastanza carichi di amaro, č molto beverina e piacevole

330ml bottle, so it’s not at it’s freshest, and this is a style that suffers for that. The nose gives off a whiff of skunk that fortunately doesn’t come through on the tongue. A nice crisp pilsener, some grains in the background. The Saaz hops are light so they don’t overwhelm the malt.

Poured a golden color, frothy white head which did not last long, had some lace. Slight skunk smell to it. Start is malt, middle is medium, the finish is crisp, a little dry and refreshing. Hops are present, but not too powerful. Average Beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
BBD 2/17/15. Pours a clear light amber (golden). Very good head, lacing and retention. Mild nose of light biscuit with a touch of Saaz hop aroma and spiciness. As it warms, the hops come more forward. Light medium body with a somewhat slick oily texture. Above normal carbonation with good effervescence on the finish and also in the middle. Very well done and it allows the Saaz hops to really shine in the middle. The flavor profile is intense for a Pilsner, well balanced and has a bit of complexity. It begins with a burst of Saaz hop flavor over a light biscuit sweetness. The middle is Saaz - both in flavor and bitterness over a balanced sweetness. The finish is quite crisp, a touch dry, and leaves you with a lingering bitterness and a bit of biscuit and spice. About 30 years ago, I had this fresh on draft and it was World Class. Over the years, it has suffered in quality, but the brown bottle now helps move it towards its past greatness.
