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.

alcoholica (128) - Dublin, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Yellow-gold in color with a decent head and lace. Some floral hops in the aroma. Taste of the hops and a nice malt flavor. A very well rounded pilsner. Overall one of the better pilsner beers out there.

joejames (111) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle to tumbler glass. Pours light golden, quick head, little head. Aroma is bready with floral notes. Taste is nicely balanced light malty sweet and very earthy (floral and herbal) bitter. Light body, lively carbonation and sort of a light honey mouth feel. Finishes sweet with nice Saaz hop complex bitter notes. Dry at the end. This has always been my favorite pilsner.

pomko (195) - UKRAINE - JUL 30, 2014
Well, I was kind of disappointed with than one. I was expecting something really surprising. But... Yep, this is good, high-quality, drinkable but, not my cup of tea. Even though, one of the best pilsener.

Derbeth (280) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle. Golden colour, clear, medium size head, mostly diminishing, showing fair lacing. Aroma is quite intensive, mostly of herbs, plus some malt and wort. Light bitterness. Good one.
