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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear, light golden color with nice pearly head. Aroma is hay and dough notes. Flavor is very light and crisp. Palate is also very light. What a classic. I could drink these all day.

Cristobal37 (357) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Nice and bitter pils. Lacy and soft with lots of bitterness. Light body with a soft palate and long lasting delicate bitterness. A classic good just about anytime.

McWorta (954) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 5, 2015
Clear golden colour with a small frothy white head. Light straw-biscuit notes with herbal-floral impressions on the nose. Bit lively, light-medium bodied whilst showing a light bit thin texture. Good balance between sweet and herbal light resinous bitterness of the hops. Short-medium finish. Refreshing.

aleigator (440) - GERMANY - JUL 5, 2015
Pours a crystal clear, sun-yellow color, with a huge, bubbly head. Reveals aromas of hay, together with biscuity malts and leafy, bitter hops. Very well composed, with all aromas staying in perfect balance to each other. Has a higher, fitting carbonation, leading to a very refreshing, light bodied beer. Begins with cakey malts and dough wheat, soon joined by herbal, grassy hops. Due to the metallic carbonation, the hops grow more prominent on the tongue, becoming the most dominant flavour during the finish, exhibiting a bitter, refreshing leafy hop profile, still balanced by the beers taste foundation. Very clean, easy drinking, thirst quenching beer. While it is not too complex, it ops pretty straight forward, and succeeds, in establishing a hop driven beer for warm days.

Good pilsner. Nothing that remarkable, but the original. It’s a clean, refreshing drink.

OldMrCrow (2145) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2015
16 oz can from Total Wine. It’s a cliche, but I can’t believe I haven’t rated this. I’ve certainly drank enough of it but I don’t know that I’ve bought it at the store. It’s a hotel bar savior when the next best thing is bass ale or sam adams boston lager. Beautiful pour, glowing light amber with a lovely fine-textured fluffy head. Elegant streams of bubbles rising through my glass. Nose is a grassy and just a hint sour, flavor is pure pils all the way. Good noble hops, not to aggressively hop-oily, lightly bready malts instead of crackers all up in your face. Yeah, mouthfeel is a bit thin but how much are you going to complain at 4.4%? That’s the whole damn point of a refreshing summer pils. Delicious. I should rotate bitburger out and rotate this in, I think.

Gangstergafje (219) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2015
The beer has a dark color, with a little hint of orange. The Beer looks like morning urine, exactly the same color and the same little foam on top of it. The smell is very bitter, which is very nice. There is also a little sweetness in the smell. The taste has the same bitterness as the smell. The bitterness is clearly caused by the hops. There is also a nice citrusy hop taste. Very nice. The beer has a nice gassiness, which results in a nice palate.

Clear golden coloured with a small white head. Aroma of malts and hops. Flavour of fruits, malts and hops. Dry hoppy finish.
