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.

From the bottle: Aroma of grain, moderate hops, grass, light cheese, mustard and rollerskate. Sounds uninviting but it was a wonderfully refreshing character for me to experience. Clear pale yellow with an average one finger white frothy head that fully diminished, rather quickly too. Flavor and finish both a little acetic and somwhat sweet; the body oily but lively carbonated. Left chalk in the gutters. It may be that this one was skunked or it may be the character of the beer; either way I can’t knock it and I definitely haven’t had my last.

Had this at a beer tasting event. Hoppy aroma covered in skunk. Nice golden appearance. Flavor wasn’t nearly as skunky as the aroma was. It was quite hoppy, well balanced. Nice to taste a true pilsener rather than the weak American light beer type pilsener. Still, I’m not a huge fan of this type of beer. Too light, still too watery, and a skunky profile thanks to the green bottle. The flavor is the best part, which is what matters, but overall the beer isn’t anything special in my eyes.

Golden color, kind of a bananaish smell. Tastes a bit hoppy with more flabby fruit in there. Good if you cant get any other microbrews, but otherwise, why?

Golden Yellow Pour. No head at all. Lots of flavor in this one for a lighter brew. Refreshing, and clean tasting. smelled like a skunked beer, but i think thats just the style, i think it is the saaz hops but im not sure. thin to med mouthfeel. Overall just an okay brew for me, not a fan of the style.

golden in color with white head aromas of skunk due to bottle color and maybe not being fresh taste of skunk

I know this is the Czech beer that you can find anywhere and it tastes like it. A rough drink around the edges. NOthing refined here.

Bottle. Aroma of malt, hops, grass, straw, bread, and skunk. Flavor follows suit, with some mild bitterness. Light body, active carbonation, for a crisp palate. Just a little bit better than those completely typical Euro macros; this one is so-so but totally overrated on here.
