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.

2008 Bottle @ Falcon Tavern - Light dry bitter front end, fresh malt on the back end. I drank this a few years ago and hated it, now, not so bad. I would probably drink this again...

Typical Euro skunkiness. I once read where this beer was considered one of the world’s best. I think other beers have come a long way since that time.

Good everyday beer or good with chicken or fish. Light in color and flavor. Goes down with ease.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Pours a clear golden color with a small bubbly white head that lingered throughout with a little lacing. Mild grainy malt aroma with a hint of skunk. The taste is slightly better with a decent balance of bitterness and malts. Mouthfeel is light but not watery - very crisp and clean on the palate. This is better than most Euro pilsners and is fairly drinkable.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2008
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.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Clear gold pour. Fizzy white head and rather thin in the lace department. Clean refreshing. Thin bodied notable hints of hops

Good Czech Pils. Nothing extraordinary just a sessionable pale pilsner. Easy drinking and highly addictive it is a good beer for any occassion.

BeerBunker (943) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2008
Pours golden with a fizzy white head. Aroma is of malts, nuts, and mild spice. Taste is malty, with notes of spice, bubblegum, and weak hops. Better than anticipated, but still subpar.

sdriessen (320) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 5, 2008
Pours a very light yellow with a small and quickly diminishing head. Aromas of freshly cut grass, lime and herbs. A fruity pilsner with flavors of apple, citrus, coriander and bubblegum. A watery mouthfeel with a soft carbonation. Leaves a bitter, hoppy finish that lasts. Not bad.

Aug 1, 2006 This is one of my mainstream favorites, enjoyed recently on London trip in Chelsea, but have also drank in Praha. Very refreshing and not too strong. Clean.
