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.

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.

Bottle poured into a shaker pint. Pours a clear golden straw color with a nice white head. Floral hop aroma present. Tastes of pear, citrus and grain. Slightly sweet with a dry crisp finish. A little skunky as well. Solid for the style.

This classic beer is still very well. Clear malt and hops aroma and taste, nice bitter finish. And it reminds me of times spent in ČR’s pivnice.

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.
