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.

Keg in the Racehorse, Kettlewell. Golden with a frothy white head. Notes of citrus and caramel. Light and refreshing.

YigSvartka (105) - Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Dark, but transparent golden yellow with many bubbles. No head. Typical cereal oriented pilsner aroma, but heavier emphasis on honey. Much more impressed with the taste. Maintains a smooth and refreshing texture that is true to the style, yet manages to introduce minor complexities. Initially, the stereotypical pilsner flavour prevails with cereals, honey, and grass, but the finish manages to have a slight bitter hop that makes this one unique. Good.

wittz (15) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 14, 2014
Arcszesz-light, sörkorcsolya, verejték (de nem Mister), pici szappan. Szentségtörés: nem kéne névadónak (iskolateremtőnek?) lennie, nem érdemli meg. A villanykörtém színhőmérséklete hagy kívánni valót maga után, így az Appearance necces. Keserűsége macsós sajna. Azért a maga módján ez is egy trip.

KoNrRiI (517) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2014
0.5 can. Clear, gold color and a small, white head. Aroma is not especially alluring - it’s an odd mix of vegetables and honey; while certainly interesting it isn’t something one particularly enjoys. Taste is full of Czech hops and pale malts - quite sweet actually, not the same bitter hops as I remember from a few years back. Medium body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is medium-long and honey-induced again. Overall a nice brew, a classic in its style.

Good skunky and fresh aroma. Highly recommend as a chaser for old grand dad... Trust me. Bought this as a one off in the supermarket in USA. At least as good as the Czech Budweiser I had in Poland ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

metalspice (126) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2014
Strĺfarget med lyst skum. Har en sćregen lukt og smak, blanding av brřd og gress, men blir kjedelig. Husker den som mer spennende.

drsandman (392) - New York, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Pours a clear yellow gold with minimal white head. Aroma is wheat, grain, faint lemon, cereal, pale malt, some skunk in the trunk. Flavor is light bready malt, grass, faint pilz hop. Such a classic, it's clearly best on tap in CZ!

Poured from bottle, hazy gold with low head. Aroma strong with notes of toast, bread and hay. Taste is bitter at first, then quickly gives way to some sweetness and a dissolving finish.
