COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

yngwie (17049) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 11, 2006
Bottled. Light-carbonation golden beer with a small white head leaving lacings. Quite weak aroma with flowery hops overpowering the malts. Clean, malty and hoppy flavor, with a lovely bitter finish. A bit thin body, but ok. (060411)

Bottle: Light golden with a nice head. Very good pilsner for this stout drinker.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - APR 9, 2006
Light bronze, a nice floral aroma based on a good amount of hops in the brew, making a good combo with the malts and crystals. Finishes oily, salty and bitter. Medium carbonation and a regular apperance.

330ml bottle. The classic Pilsner from the country where the Pilsner is as much a tradition as persecuting gypsies and beating them up with clubs and rocks. Clear golden-yellow body with a small white head. Floral hoppy nose. For some reason I never had a Pilsner Urquell that had the typical green bottle problems (skunky aroma, premature aging, etc.). Light to medium body. Grassy mouthfeel with a very well balanced taste between the malts and the hops. Long mildly bitter and grassy finish. Leaves an overall salty and dry feeling. It’s not often that a best-selling beer is actually one of the best of its kind (Guiness anyone?) but the Pilsner Urquell is truly one of the very good pilsner I have had. I’m still not a fan of the genre though.

It’s my first Czech beer and I was not disappointed. For sure, thats not the best beer ever brewed, but still a pleassure to drink.

Draght. Clear golden coloured with a small white head. Aroma of malts and hops. Flavour of fruits, malts and hops. Dry hoppy finish.

Finn (7547) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 7, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2008 Bright golden. White head that completely disappeared. Hoppy aroma. Oily texture. A sweet bitter aftertaste. Refreshing. KI=3

UPDATED: APR 12, 2006 Good solid beer without doing anything spectacular. Very drinkable, but also quite forgetable.

Aroma of light malt and bananas. Pours a medium bronzy color with a nearly white head that dissipates quickly. The taste is fresh with a bit of that fresh banana malt flavor. The finish is quick and clean: the beer is fairly dry but as per style it isn’t going to have a bunch of lingering hops. I imagine that this would be better on a hot summer day. I fear that my rating is biased for my lack of favor for pilseners.

Got a giant 710 ml can of this in windsor and was anxious to try it but slightly dissapointed. Not a bad flavor but too much of a skunk flavor/smell to be enjoyable for me
