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.

The best beer brewed in the world. It is even better from the keg. If you only had one beer to have on a deserted island this is my choice. Its great cold or warm.

this is the best. The first. And the survival. They made this beer a long time at the first beer making method. Now they make it more modern, but they always have a can made in the old way, which they compare the beer made on the moden way to.

This is THE pilsner beer. No other, or almost no other beer should be called that. Great deep golden colour, with orange reflection when you put it to the light. Nice head with lot of bubbles, though it fades quickly, but leaving a great lace. Hoppy aroma of herbs, and hay, with a delicate spicy touch and even some fruity hints. In mouth is round, perfectly clean, bitter, probably the most bitter pilsner I’ve ever had, but with a delicate and silky flavor and smoked notes. Malt is more noticed than in the smell. Dry finish, very refreshing and appetizer. Perfect.

Drank it in Prague at U Kocourna...like no other beer on earth when its fresh. tastes like youre eating hops its so fresh and forget any American IPA, this has to be one of the hoppiest beers on earth but not overpowering or unbalanced. Unfortunately I have not had a single one in the USA that tasted like this. All imported bottles are skunky. Try it on tap at a bar with a reputable publican.

Well, i bought this beer at the local lcbo store in 500ml cans (bought 5). Aroma is spicy malty and lots of malt flavor. Color is nice dark brown. No skunky smell. Great beer. Finished all 5 cans, will be hard to try different beer after this one, this will be my new regular beer. All i can say is WOW!

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2008 Nice amber color. Excellent ballance, not too carbonated, moderately bitter via the awesome Saaz hops. Very lively beer! The best pilsner in my opinion. I can’t imagine it any better than it already is. (Kind of sad that this brewery is under the ownership of bullshit SABMiller now)
