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.

SamTheBarrel (681) - Vallentuna, - SEP 21, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2014 500 ml can, pours clear golden with a medium white foam head that quickly reduced. Aroma of white bread, hay, honey, apricots and herbs. Taste is dry and bitter with a slight sweetness. Light-medium body with good carbonation. A delicious Czech Pilsner, available relatively cheap and fresh almost everywhere in Europe.

330ml bottle. Pours clear golden colour, small foamy white head. Aroma is malty and floral. Taste is bready and hoppy, a little bitterness in the aftertaste. Very refreshing. 2014-05-03.

Drinkable pilsener. Nothing special. Doesn’t live up to the tradition of the brand....

Aromat slodki, wyczuwalna goryczka. Piana nie utrzymuje sie dlugo. Kolor zloty. W smaku przyjemny, slodkawy.

TorbenJensen (1321) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2015
It has great serious and persistent foam, good flavor of a little malt, but most hops. Medium fullness with only a hint of malt sweetness. Hop bitterness with its seductive floral notes soon takes over, and hops are the most urgent flavor note in Urquell. It may be a model for the world lagers, but this is not a lager that push me out of your seat excitement. Preserved - it is as certain type of real, rich and tasty, but more praise deserve it nor.

It all started here sith pilsner. Very balanced, fresh taste. Very hoppy tast, starts smooth but becomes dry and bitter. One of the better pilsner

Bottle from bjcp course. Grain, earth, diacethnyl, bread, dough. Malt forward grain, lentil earthiness flavour. Okay clarity. Nice for style.

Bottle pours amber with one-inch head. Smells of cereal, grain, and a hint of tobacco. It’s got a bigger body than most pilsners, but I could use more flavor and hop scent. Overall, not bad but would much rather have it on tap.

It’s smooth, yet bubbly, like my personality. I’ve been craving pils lately. This one has a bit more flavour than most. Czech beer for the masses. Some light skunky bitterness. The green bottles are killing me. While do they do that? Maybe the beer doesn’t really taste much better in good condition? Best experience was in a plastic cup with a sausage from a street vendor in Prague. Stella, Heineken, Urquell - what’s the difference really?

Perfect pour. A: sweet malts, nice bitter aroma, refreshing and inviting. T: very smooth Pilsener, softest water I have ever had in a beer. No weird bitter spikes, very smooth taste development. Crisp mouthfeel. Thirst quencher, but also nice to just enjoy.
