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.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 16/20
islay (2411) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Large serving, perhaps around 20 oz., on tap at World of Beer in St. Paul, Minnesota. Consumed on 11-16-16. Mostly clear but lightly hazy bronze. Not as hazy (let alone cloudy) as I was expecting. Moderate to large amount of long-lasting, fluffy, off-white head. Liquid looks good but head looks great. Good lacing. Fresh noble hops aroma. Fleshly cooked cracker. Pretzel. A bit of spice. Very Eastern Central European in smell. Dry fresh, somewhat beery taste. Very nice, complex finish. Mineral. A lot of dry, borderline bitterness. First couple of sips underwhelmed, but I liked it better after that. Subtle peach. Nice but subtle, lingering, dynamic bitterness in the aftertaste. Easy to drink. Pillowy in palate. Light to medium body. Soft and frothy. Whatever is going on with the palate really works. Really, really good. Lives up to the hype. A fresher, more complex version of the already good original. Very glad I took the opportunity to finally try this one.

Opaque golden yellow, bit lasting, lacing foam head. Barley aroma, some ha noes. Nice fresh beer taste. Again some farm notes, not unpleasant. (Madrid 201611)

Inesperada. Acostumbrado a las cervezas del mismo estilo e incluso a esta misma pero de botella y filtrada, no dejó de sorprender para bien. Muy turbia, quizás demasiado (barril recién pinchado). Como no soy experto en catas sólo decir que me tomaría unas cuantas y que si tenéis ocasión de encontrarla, que no es fácil, no lo dejéis pasar. Probada en el Olut de Sabadell, el taproom de Nómada.

Easy as a pils should be, but plenty of surprises you don?t usually find in the style, white bread and grassy hops . Colorful and hazy. Quite amazing.
