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.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 More hoppy and lighter color than its Czech rival Budweiser but an easy drinking Pilsner non the less

ATTENZIONE:La mia valutazione viene fatta in base allo stile della birra.
Pilsner perfetta, poco corpo e forte presenza di luppolo ma niente di eccezionale. La birra ha un colore dorato con schiuma bianca ma non abbondante ma persistente. Il corpo è leggero e rinfrescante. Quello che domina la scena è il sapore del luppolo che è presente SEMPRE, cioè dall'inizio del sorso fino alla fine. Inoltre l'amaro rimane in bocca anche dopo alcuni secondi dopo il sorso. Quello che mi ha impressionato è stato la sua leggerezza. Una pecca, secondo me, è la carbonazione che dovrebbe essere leggermente maggiore. Comunque una birra buona, rinfrescante e soprattutta amara come deve essere una pilsner. Ovviamente, l'amaro non è invadente ma piacevole.

Bottle from Morrisons. I'm no great expert with the Pilsner style. I really enjoyed this beer. Lovely hoppy aroma sweet Pilsner malt and appropriate bitterness. Gave the impression of a well balanced lager and I haven't enjoy that one so much since sitting in the very hot sun.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2017 Idealnie klarowne, złociste, ładna pianka, musuje. Aromat słodowo-słodki z maślano-karmelowym diacetylem, lekka siarka. W smaku mocno chmielowo-goryczkowy (goryczka średnia do lekkiej), lekka podbudowa słodowa, może troszkę diacetylu, kapka żelaza. Fest pijalne i fajnie nagazowane, nie za mocno.

On bottle. Pours golden with thick head, which dissapears quickly. Notes of fruits and citra - easy drinkable. Light hops - reminds of a Tuborg, with more co2.

Great Beer, flavours hold up with food. Classic Pislner. Deliciouse straight out the tank!

So this is the original pilsner. It's a good beer indeed, and maybe it's good it didn't change, but honestly there are better followers out there.

Zapach: słody, lekka żywica.
Smak: słodowy, goryczka raczej niska, całkiem pijalne.

very light flavor, with obvious hops

I was expecting the hops, but I was expecting more flavor from this "King" of the Czech beers.

Suddenly, I am aware of why Kings lose their crowns..........

Nice bottle but you can make more with the labels, good. Clear golden beer with very long fine white head - very good, smell is grass, taste is typical Pils, bitter but not too much, I think they take soft water, very good, sorry for my rating but I‘m not a fan of Pils
(I have 0.5l bottle with best-before 02.05.18 and batch L2217 09:02)
