Pilsner Urquell Nefiltrovaný (unfiltered) is available on the Plzensky Prazdroj tour and at Na Parkanu in Plzen. A limited number of kegs were exported to Sweden and Finland for special events. Though the beer is not kvasnicovy (yeast beer), as there is no wort or young yeast added, it is unpasteurized and unfiltered.
Unfiltered Pilsner is available in selected pubs every october. Note that this is not the same as the more widespread tankovná (tank beer) or the unpasteurized (filtered) version, both of which are found throughout Prague and Czech Republic. all of these other versions should be reviewed under the regular Pilsner Urquell entry. Additionally, the 170 year Anniversary flip-top bottles should be reviewed under the regular Pilsner Urquell entry.

luttonm (5279) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2014
.5l draft at The Rover in Gothenburg. Great, slight hazed gold. Heavy thick foam. Rich sweet pils aroma. Hop, malt. Great heavy yeast, much fuller flavor, herb and soft fruit. Great full flavor. A treat with perfume and a great hop bite. Lives up to hype, and might be the best lager I’ve ever tried.

another beer that should have been rated ages ago, sampled most recently in dublin
dry, full bodied cereal with herbal bitterness and creamy mouthfell, long bitter finish. Not as good as when i had it in czech rep or leeds but better than in edinburgh...very sensitive to travel it seems

stravale (2907) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 30, 2014
Wooden Cask @ EBBC14, Dublin [270614]
Light golden, huge fluffy white head, hazy, good lacing
Aroma - very fresh soft grassy, soft yeast, pale lager malts
Taste as aroma, fresh soft grassy bitter, soft yeast, slight zest, quite complex flavour, hoppy for a pilsner, bit bready
Palate - Medium carb and body, quite a creamy texture, refreshing, fairly bitter finish
Overall - This is from memory as I made no notes at the time....certainly a very drinkable lager with much more flavour than ordinary tap version. I’m not a fan of lagers but could easily enjoy an few pints of this....wish I made proper notes at the time but didn’t think then it would be a separate entry...

Draught at the Plzeňský Prazdroj, Plzeň, Czech Republic. Hazy golden colour with a mid-size white head. The aroma is grassy hoppy and grainy malty. The flavour is grassy hops, mild bitterness and grainy and bready maltiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

popery (2078) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Pours medium orangey gold, foamy white head, good retention. Doughy pilsner malt for days, spicy grassy hops not too strong. Bready taste but still fairly dry, way more flavor than the normal stuff. Full mouthfeel but still light and easy to drink

The_Osprey (7174) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2014
Pleased to find this one at the White Horse, Soho. From an oak barrel, into a glass tankard. Drunk outside in the sunny streets of soho. Hazy orange, big foamy white head, thin lacing. Aroma - malty, yeast, slightly sour and vegetal, some wheaty character. Body is medium, a bit foamy, light carbonation. Taste - very bready - lots of wholemeal bread, watery citrus, very slight esters, dental rinse, lightly astringent (maybe a touch of oak adds to this impression), bit of salt - definitely leans towards savoury rather than sweet. Long, softly bitter finish. This is a good beer, but I was expecting something a bit better.

jdobbs (411) - New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 13, 2014
pours a clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma of grain, malt, and yeast. Taste of solid balanced grain and malt, nice dry crisp light hops, with yeast. This a solid Pilsner, refreshing and easy drinking, a great example of the style

miquelcrush (2053) - Granollers, SPAIN - APR 22, 2014
No té res a veure amb la Urquell normal, és molt més aromŕtica i gustosa. No tiene nada que ver con la Urquell normal, es mucho mas aromática y sabrosa.
