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.

My favorite "green bottle" beer. I kind of like the skunkyness and would almost be afriad to try it fresh. Hoppy and dry....makes me pee like an untrained german shepard.

Sampled on tap at MillerTime in Milwaukee. I found this brew to be decent, but probably a bit out of date. Almost skunky. Saaz hops were noted. Give me a Victory Prima Pils anyday. I’d like to try a fresher version of this on tap. It did get better as it warmed up.

Bottle
Pours nice and gold with a subdued head. Aroma is nice and pungent, with notes of hops and malt. Flavor is a refreshing blend of the aforementioned ingredients. Crisp, tangy, and bitter. A good pilsner.

An excellent light beer. From the home of pilsners (Pils, Czech Republic), is yet another example of the master breweres from Eastern Europe. Clear, light, refreshing

Can. Pours clear yellow with a small vanishing head. Good ol saaz. I’d like to try this beer on tap where it is made.

Bottle, golden color, minimal head and lacing, strong aroma of skunk and tastes skunky as well. I’m not big on the whole green bottle style of skunky beers.

(500ml can) Strong aroma, very pilsenery. Golden-orange in color. A sweet malty accent. Nice white head which diminishes rather quickly. Very little lacing. A fair amount of bitterness. Nice, gentle, lasting bitter finish. Good carbonation. Slight hoppy aftertaste. I like the balance of this beer.

I did not enjoy this beer. It had an aftertaste that did not agree with me. A bit skunky for my taste.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2010 12 oz bottle - Note, I am not a pilsner fan. I’ve had too many flavorless, yellow, fizzy beers in the style. But this one is actually pretty good. Pours a fairly thick, moderate duration head, not much lacing. Taste is pretty light as one would expect for a pilsner, but finishes with the bite of Euro hoppiness. It lacks complexity, but I could drink a few of these without complaint. Rerate 1/24/2010: Excellent crisp hops in the flavor, a little citrus, great balance and drinkability. A fine pilsner. Bumped rating from 3.3 to 3.5.

Nice beer. Crisp, light. It’s a pilsner, so if you like pilsner, you’ll probably like this. Maybe a little skunky, but all in all a good bet. No strong leaning one way or the other with regard to rating criteria. Good session beer.
