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.

Seems to be true to style, but perhaps this style just doesn’t suit my palate.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2005 niceley hopped and carbonated. Clear pale color. A little skuny. Long bitter finish with little malts. Good lacing.

I heard such great things about this beer and i was so dissapointed with it. It had a really bad taste to it. It must just be me, but i really did not care for this one.

Don’t understand what’s so great about this beer, and why so many people like it.

Sort of reminds me of a mellow Heineken. The smell is rather nice, but the taste is nothing spectacular, and perhaps the sour taste comes a little too late to be apprechiated. A little less substance than I like, but perhaps that’s more the nature of this style. There is a sort of satisfying dry wheaty flavor that settles on the tounge.

I had a skunked bottle so I will have to re-rate.

Considering this was the original pils, it’s a good thing brewers did not hew too close to the original. The aroma is overwhelming and it doesn’t have a good aftertaste.

i was disappointed with this beer. i expected better from what is supposedly the original. it has an ordinary taste and there are much better pilsners.

This is not a bad pilsner, but it's very bitter. It has a very strong wheat content in the taste also. I really don't like this beer too much.

As a pilsner its fine. As a beer it's average.Taste is clean but I thought it was too dry. Not worth the price unless you are a die-hard pilsner fan.
