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.

Draught, Hotel Mercure Korona, Budapest. This seemed to be the best on offer at the time and expectations were low going by what I’d tried at home in a bottle. It was Ok though and I guess this is a pretty good exponent of the genre. Crisp and clean tasting with some maltiness. Not a bad get out of jail card.

Pretty big and lemony aromas light hops. A nice big cereal hit. Crisp and refreshing with some hops to finish. Not super lovely but obviously better than most easily accessible beers.

bottle. golden pilsener - definite skunk taste - similar to many mass produced beer - not really worth rating but will.

12 oz. Bottle. Pours a nice golden color. Small white head. Smells of malts and also a little bitter. Simliar tastes. A decent pilsner but not my favorite.

Drank it for the first time on keg in the Czech Rep. The aroma consits out of nice Saaz hops. The taste is mainly about the hop and bitterness. As is wanted in a pilsner.

Pours beautiful, rich golden color with nice white head & lacing. Excellent carbonation. Aroma is yeast and hops with a slight metallic tinge. Crisp flavor that finishes clean. Was expecting something similar to Stella, but I believe this is better.

Tap at some restaurant in Prague, Czech Republic, as Plzensky Prazdroj 12

The classic of all pilseners, but not the best. I actually liked the Starobrno better than this one. Poured it is a clear light golden beer, with a big foamy long lasting head. The aroma is malty and a little sour, some alcohol. Simple and a little too indistinct. Clean, fresh, sharp, czech pilsenere with a bitter finish which later are subdued a bit by the alcohol - which is a shame. It could be more creamy or less watery too, but isn’t damaging the beer that much.

Bottle 330ml. Not bad, not great. Aroma has straw, flowers, and malt. Flavour is sweet, with light bitterness; nice, but with short duration. Oily in the palate, but thin body. Dark yellow, with a white head that disappears.

Not bad. Super light beers aren’t usually my thing but this is something you can drink like soda. No complaints. Just not exciting. Very smooth and clean with good carbonation. This is my first beer of this style, but for a lake of being able to compare it to its own style... compared your typical pale lager, this stuff is pretty good.

Pours a bright yellow color and a bright white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is light hops with some grains and alcohol. The taste is similar, with some additional sweet honey notes. Crisp, clean mouthfeel. Good for the style, but not my personal preference.
