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.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2014 Wet grass, herbs aroma. Rich malty flavor, then bitter herbal hops, dry finish. Pretty aggressive in bitterness and hops do lack flavors. This is surely part of beer history, but I’m very glad that a newer part of history is being written right now by so many young talented brewers.

0.5l Flasche. Gold-trüb, leichter, feiner, weißer Schaum, mäßig stabil, dezente Hopfenaromen, moderat prickelnd, erfrischend im Antrunk, gefolgt von bitteren Hopfennoten. Mittlerer Körper. Angenehm bitter.

Poured from a chilled 16 ounce can into a footed pilsner glass and I’ve had this before from the green bottle (and it was a bit skunkish, too) but from the can, unskunk. A rich, golden colour, too, but, it is the taste that excites. If Pilsner Urquell continues distributing this in can form, they’ll have a loyal customer.

Clear golden, not very lasting medium sized white head. Aroma of malts and cereal. Rich malty taste with some bitterness. Medium carbonation. Good pilsner.

nephirem (169) - CROATIA - JUL 22, 2016
Can, 0.5l. Pours clear golden color with short lasting white head. Refreshing smell of malts, yeast and hops. Thin to medium body with moderate carbonation. Texture is a bit watery but very smooth nonetheless. Taste is combination of malt sweetness and hops bitterness, really nicely balanced and very refreshing. Aroms of malts, yeast, slight corn and hops. Finish is medium and hoppy. Overall, tasty beer. Very good.

mariuspoenari (1291) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2016
Bottle at home. Clear straw yellow with a thin white head. Notes of pilsner malts, bitter generic hops, interesting unripe red fruit - like raspberries and strawberries - followed by a malt sweetness that drags it down a bit. Light bodied, high carbonation, refreshing finish.

Incredibly tasty. There are many awesome tasty beers out there, but Pilsner Urquell always sits well with you. You drink 10 pints one day, and can still drink more the day after. without being forced. Nejlepsí pivo na svete.

Sabrosa y muy refrescante. Una de las mejores pilsner que he probado. Es un poquito mas amarga que otras pilsner , al final.

Evilman (72) - Taverny, FRANCE - JUL 19, 2016
A quite decent lager, I enjoyed this one on tap at the White Whale bar in Prague, during a trip around the city by a hot afternoon. Very pleasing and refreshing, taste doesn’t change much from other pilsners available in czech republic imo but it does the job pretty well. Cool hops aftertaste, a good bet. Best served cold on tap! APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW!

Ritzn (312) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2016
On tap in prague. Clear golden with medium creamy white head. Aroma is a little buttery, grassy hops, typical helles stuff. Taste is well balanced everything. Hoppy and nice. In the finish the butter kicks in again. Medium body. Smooth mouthfeel. Ok I guess.

beerplace (576) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 18, 2016
500ml can. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Aroma is biscuity malt, flowery. Taste is pretty similar with a hoppy bitterness. Hoppy bitterness aftertaste.
