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.

The original pilsener, and an all-time classic beer. Smooth, drinkable, with the perfect hop bite in the finish. Not enough hops to assault your palate like an IPA - just enough to keep it interesting. Refreshing, light-bodied. The ultimate lawnmower beer.

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

A very pleasant beer. Sort of my definition of a good beer. Golden color, white lasting head, crisp bitterness. All good things.

50cl on tap at some random place in Kaplice, Czech. Clear golden with a white head. Moderate malty aroma with a hint of fruits, nice herbal and grassy notes. Moderate sweet with balanced flavours and a fine bitterness. Certainly a decent pilsner and really nice still when it’s fresh from tap. Nice and sessionable thirst quencher.

ZacM612 (297) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Gold, very bubbly, with a medium white head. Aroma is yeasty, slightly skunky despite a NOV2215 date. Flavor is pretty good, though. Good Pils.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2015 Draft in the Plzen, Czech about 2 years ago. "Not sticky, rich head and golden colour. A pleasant subtle aroma of floral honey. Refreshing a little sweet malt backbone and flavour of the Saaz above a suitable carbonation, good feeling." - tasting note at that time.

Dorada, ligeramente burbujeante y con bonita espuma de dos dedos bastante duradera. Aroma ligeramente lupulado. Marcado sabor a cereal. Amargor equilibrado.

Well, its a pilsner, but one of the better ones. Fairly hoppy for its kind, certainly more than most industrialized pilsners.

Ótima cerveja,uma referęncia para o estilo.

Yellow colour, creamy white head, aroma of saaz hops, hay, grass, lager yeast. Taste is slightly bitter, very refreshing and drinkable, light body slick oily texture, average to fizzy carbonation. One of the best pilsners when it is from a tank.
