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.

JorgeLee (2017) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2014
From the wooden barrel at an event at the Windsor Castle W8, sampled next to the standard stuff served in pubs here. Deeper colour, hints of amber, hazy. Medium head. Carbonation lower and softer, far nicer to drink. Fresh hop, spicy, bitter. It’s glorious. I do think it’s not as rich as the Urquell I remember from the Plzen trip in 1998, hard to tell whether my palate or the recipe are responsible for this change.

Got to have it on draft - out of the bottle just doesn’t do this beer justice

Lilja (3100) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2014
Pĺ fat. Riktigt god pilsner. Smak och doft av humle,, malt, jäst med toner av karamell och örter. Jämn och len. Fruktig med fin beska. Välbalanserad och lagom sötma. Karaktär.

hyacinthus (11) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 8, 2014
Quite good pilsener, way better that filtered v. Malty, light caramel notes, sometimes doughy. Fizzy carbonation, not so stable head, hazy. Classic interpretation.

MrTipple (4321) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2014
Aroma: grain and cereal malts, light caramel. Appearance: hazy pale gold, creamy. Taste: light sweet. Palate: light bitters intensify quickly, medium bitter an light dry in the average-long finish, malty throughout, grain and cereal. Overall: very nice Pilsener, very refreshing, surprisingly complex and satisfying. Pint at a Wooden Barrel Event at the Windsor Castle, Kensington.

From oak barrel @ Plzensky Prazdroj brewery tour 20140729. Pours hazy straw. Good head retention. Aroma is malty and spicy with some yeast tones. Taste is similar with a lot of yeast and a nice aroma hoppyness.

Prágában ittam egy kis fogadóban, ezért a sörért visszamennék. :) A habja a végiég kitartott, a színe gyönyörű volt, az íze pedig leírhatatlan. Az eddigi legfinomabb szűretlen sör, amit valaha ittam.

Draught at Taste of Toronto festival - pulled from one of 11 kegs flown over especially for the event. As I was wandering around enjoying the lovely weather and great food while I was drinking it, I didn’t take any explicit notes, but it struck me as being "a more Urquell-ish Urquell", if that makes any sense. It had all the characteristics I like about regular Urquell, but pumped up a few notches, especially the flavour. Really great stuff.
