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: OCT 9, 2013 Perhaps this embodies the style perfectly, if so than I blame the style and not the beer. Light pour from tap, yellowish color with little aroma. Sharp carbonation with floral hops and a slight honey finish. Little substance, thin and far too subtle for my palate. Would I drink again? no.

Clear golden beer, standar White head, normal carbonation, the aroma is not that good, metallic notes, some earthy notes and some dough notes are perceived. When is tasted it has a medium body with the expected flavor for a Pilsner, bitter and dense in palate. The aftertaste is as well bitter a little bit sour, and persistent.

Very good beer. But sometimes to much toffee and butter. An sometimes to bitter, and sometimes to sweet. Sometimes this beer makes me feel very good. Sometimes it makes me feel strange. But this is not a bad beer. It is something special about it. Try it you will love it.

Klasyk, wzór, Urquell. Wysoka piana w kolorze białym, kolor piwa złocisty, złoty. Znakomity chmielowy, ziołowy aromat, rześki, orzeźwiający. Długo pozostający na języku i podniebieniu smak.

Ljus och klar. Frisk lageröl med en rätt rund avslutning. Trevlig men inte mer, lite bröd och spannmål ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MikeBeermaster (188) - 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.

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 (320) - 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.
