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.

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.

The Urquel is the classic Pilsner, a bit more bitter and more aftertaste than some others, but a standard go to Pilsner on the way to other beer varietals.

12oz to pilsner glass. Pours a clear golden color. Head is effervescent, thin, white, and lacy. Aroma is grain and slight skunkiness. Taste is skunky, bitter, but has a clean sharp bite. Mouthfeel is smooth and crisp.

Nalać na siedem i cieszyć oczy, i gardło. Aromat typowy dla czeskiego pilsnera czyli lekka nuta diacetylu. Nie porywa ale jest dobrze.

33 cl can@friends house. I was never a fan of that distinct Czech malt hop combination which is so prevalent in the Urqell, long praised by people around me. I do not find it fresh enough for a pilsner. However, I did find this drink better than the discount Czech beers which have come to market in Denmark. Nice aroma, good head and quite a nice taste with plenty of hop and a good bitterness. Will never be my first choice, but better than I remembered it.
