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.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 Great pilsner. Can’t wait to go to Plzen and try them all. I don’t think i’ve ever had anything quite like it. Very unique taste with a fast fading aftertaste. Very good slightly chilled.

BeardedAvenger (252) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2016
Tap at Swan Inn, Farnborough. Hazy champagne yeast aroma. Light amber. Fizzy. A tight frothy white head. Sweet, umami. Smooth. A tickle of carbonation, followed by a dry finish. Highly drinkable if not that interesting.

VueltaBirrista (15) - Murcia, SPAIN - OCT 19, 2016
De un dorado tan brillante y limpio que casi hay que ponerse gafas de sol. Espuma poco consistente y pequeńísima burbuja. Aroma muy lineal a cebada y alguna leve nota herbal. En boca está bien estructurada, con el lúpulo muy presente, dominándolo todo y otorgándole un delicado amargor.

330ml Bottle: Pours a crystal clear golden with a good white head that stays. Lacing. Aroma of caramel, toffee and hay. A nice crisp and clean finish with medium bitterness. Tastes of caramel with bready notes. Medium to low bodied with medium to high carbonation. My favourite commercial beer.

Bierdimpfe (490) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2016
Bright dark straw color with moderate activity. Foamy white 3 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, offering a decent amount of lacing. Flavors of sweet grains, faint caramel and lemon, saaz and noble hops. Low perception of sweetness, but highly sharp with a pleasant bitterness. Slick and smooth medium to full body with prickly carbonation. Light and short finish, lingering grainy notes and some grassy noble hops. Overall good quality craft. Lightly flavored grainy feel, almost nonexistent smell, while the finish offers the most flavors with a nice herbal feel, balanced citrus, and a very faint skunky feel. Very fresh and accessible.

klukas (121) - Rijeka, CROATIA - OCT 2, 2016
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into a narrow tulip glass. Appearance: Clear golden colour, with medium foam. Aroma: Gentle aroma of malt and grass. Palate: Medium body, light carbonation. Taste: Bread; Classic lager; Very gentle sweetness and very light bitter aftertaste. Overall impression: Pleasant, light, very drinkable. It would be better with more bitterness.
