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.

Supposedly, this Czech beer is the world's oldest pilsner. I didn't like it at all. Skunky taste. Highly overrated, if you ask me.

For some time he had kept beer and I refused to try it. It really is not my style of beer, soft dough, without complexity, a very flat beer, not evolution. I will not repeat.

11.2 oz. bottle. Pale gold and clear with a white head. Heavy carbonation. Aroma and taste of pils malt, floral notes, and grass. Good pilsner. A nice thirst quencher.

It is one of my fav beers. This is an original "basic beer", with one of the best taste, and appearance. I love it. Egyik kedvenc söröm, alap sör. Imádom.

Leuchtend Gold im Glas, wenig Schaum, hopfig in der Nase, rund im antrunk, im Abgang erst sehr bitter, dann leicht süßlich malzig. Gut ausgewogen

Butelka 0,5l, data przydatności 06.02.2017r.
Aromat - Lekko słodowy, trochę kukurydziany, może lekkie masełka, chmielowość raczej ziołowa.
Wygląd - Barwa złota, klarowne. Piana niska średnio pęcherzykowa, utrzymuje niski kożuch do końca picia, biała.
Smak - Słodowe, lekko kukurydziane. Goryczka średnia do niskiej, ziołowa. Wysycenie średnie. Piwo jak na klasykę trzyma poziom. Podobno najlepsze niefiltrowane, ale jeszcze nie było mi dane spróbować.

500ml bottle from Asda. Pours a slightly misty pale gold with medium carbonation. Aroma is grain, floral, hops. Taste is similar, a little bitter, very little sweetness.

drjoeng (696) - SINGAPORE - JUN 19, 2016
4.4%ABV. Czech Pilsner Poured out clear amber. 8şSRM. Nose is clean and beery. There is a clean malt sweetness but also a mineral roundness to the nose. Mouthfeel is watery. Palate is malty and beery with wheat toast, a pronounced minerality which is almost salty or umami in the middle palate and then the finish which is medium long with a spicy, bitter hoppy character. The spice is like cilantro or fennel in character and has a very pleasant herbaceous quality to it. A thoroughly enjoyable quaff! You understand why it all started here and why Urquell is the reference Czech Pils. Goes on Favorites List !
