Definitely my favourite mass produced pilsner; The original! Smells nice and hoppy, Appearance is gold, bright, clear. Tastes very refreshing, with a great hoppy bitterness and perfect balance. Mouthfeel is fizzy and not thin. Overall a great beer. I wish more big brands would offer such a drinking experience.

Das original Pilsner Urquell ist der Inbegriff deutscher Braukunst. Was der Bayern Josef Groll da geleistet hat begeistert noch viele Jahre später. Ein herrlich frisches Pilsener wie es sein muss.

Bottle, brought back from Mirek’s wedding. Light golden colour, thickish white foam. Less full malts than some other Czech pils, but obviously a bit fuller than the 10. Quite a sharp, abrasive hop character - herbal but a bit metallic and harsh with a short finish. Not quite good, and didn’t quite have the dirty throwaway pleasure of the 10.

Yay, warm street tick! Pink and fizzy. Very grapefruit juicy aroma. Mostly sweet grapefruit juice taste. Fizzy palate. Quite a drinkable refresher, but no beer to be found.

330ml bottle BB 9/12/16 Golden color with good head. Slight grainy aroma. Mild bitterness with thin body and finish and a large does of wet cardboard which didn’t help matters. Would be good to try a fresher version again in future but I must say, I have had better Pilsner than this.

0.5 can. Pours crystal clear golden yellow, with white frothy head, that disappears rather quickly. Surprisingly strong malt base for it’s ABV, with nice mild honey taste. Medium carbonation, with herbal, spicy notes of noble hops. Medium lasting bitterness. Nicely balanced and refreshing pilsner.

PL: W zapachu lekkie orzechowe refleksy. Nawet owocowe. W smaku jest lekko wodniste, ale czuć orzechy, zioła i trochę miodu. Goryczka jest niska, ale przyjemna. W wyglądzie złocisto-bursztynowe z ładną, białą pianą.

Pilsner Urquell
50 cl bottle from a local supermarket (around € 2). BB 02.04.2017. Pours clear, bright light golden with a small but persistent near white head. Aroma’s that of damp cornflakes and fakeish grassy hoppiness. Tastes clean, cerealy, grassy. A rather bitter finish. Creamy soft mouthfeel with crisp carbonation. So when did they decide they’ll do it with ’hop products’ instead of hops? Is that a direct result of SABMiller takeover? Overall it ain’t bad though - I prefer this to almost any widely available lager, and often choose this at Pudel for example, when in good company and it doesn’t matter what I have in the glass / to cleanse the palate from all the silly beers.

Gravity cask on the brewery tour, Pilsen. Large tight white head. Cloudy yellow gold amber body. On the nose is as follows. Yeast, dough, grass, hops, caramel, pale malt, cheddar, blue cheese and the Saaz hop. Tangerines, red fruits and Rich Tea biscuit. Taste is sweet, with some alkaline flavour from the yeast. Very dry finish. Creamy mouth feel. Light carbonation. Long finish. The benchmark for pilsner, a world leading beer with great depth.

There is a popular mixed drink that consists of this stuff with sprite or another similar soft drink. I preferred it over this beer which says something. Reminded me of some American pale lagers but with a touch of bitterness. Not bad but not amazing.

Beer in the Czech Republic is frankly cheaper than water in restaurants so most of them are light it seems. It was a light clear gold with a thin white head. There was a slightly malty/bitter aroma with a similarly light bitter taste. It was refreshing and it went well with the heaviness of Czech food but overall I wasn’t a super big fan. It was better on draft but not so much better that I’d increase the score overall by more than .2 It’s better than the generics where I am from but that isn’t saying much

a bottle from Jason’s, drunk at home - pleased to see the attractive retro label. Aroma: sourly floral. Appearance: a lovely clear golden colour, head goes away to nothing. Palate: light-bodied, soft carbonation, Saaz hops very evident in the bitter finish. Taste: pleasing, sour astringency predominates. Very solid, not my favourite kind of beer, but always good.

Bottle. Nice concept, very good notion of balancing a decent flavour with the more drinkable qualities of most pilsners. However, there is a difference between acknowledging this and considering the best exponent of a style. While the flavour is complex, it could have been a bit more long lasting. It obviously is one of the better macrobrewed ones, of course. Aromas are nice but somewhat sparse, mostly cereal-ish. Good choice for a pilsner, but there is no point to mindlessly rave about it being perfect, because of the lack of complexity in the aromas and the slightly thin texture. Very good flavour profile though.

Terrible, definitely Pale lager, not Pilsener. Czech pun "GambriHnus" make sense, "hnus" means abomination, feculence :)

No soy demasiado fan de la primera Pilsner. Me parece bien que lo utilicen a favor, como publicidad, pero creo que si una cerveza no es buena da igual que sea pionera en su estilo (aplicable no solo a cervezas). Está muy bien que traten de colarte que no solo es la primera Pilsner, si no que también es especial, que llevan usando la misma receta no sé cuántos ańos... etc. La realidad es que la cerveza es floja. Es dorada, como casi cualquier Pilsner. No crea mucha espuma por mucho que te esfuerces. La carbonatación tampoco está muy presente. El aroma es mejor que el sabor... que, he de decir, es bastante plano y, en cierto modo, desagradable. En boca se puede dar el aprobado, pero una vez que uno la traga queda un regusto de sabe Dios qué que no me interesa lo más mínimo. żPara refrescar? Indudable. żPara disfrutar? Denme otra cosa.

Can. From can. Lagery clean. Remember slight leafy notes, malt not being the usual bulk characterless maizy soup, but with some feel to it. Pretty standard pale lager though.
