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.

This beer poured out a golden color with a nice white head.This beer has a full malt flavor ,but a kind of skunky smell to it,but over all a pretty good beer.

A full malt flavour which is complemented with fruit from the hops and a proper bitter sting in the tail. Soft, but still with the unmistakeable character. A yardstick indeed!

Pale gold with a decent white head. Hop and malt aroma with a malty flavor thats leaves a nice bitterness in the aftertaste.

Wow. Although it had a faint skunky scent, Pilsner Urquell had a fruity and hoppy taste, and a refreshing if astringent finish to it. Recommended.

Bottle. Not a huge fan of pilsners; however, this one is very solid for a macro. Fairly hoppy for a pils, with a hint of lemon grass and a fragrance some people believe smells like burning weed. Leaves a rather unpleasant aftertaste.

Bottled version poured into Pilsener Urquell glass. Skunky smell hits me as soon as I open the bottle. It’s hard to get past the skunkiness but there are hints of lemon and grass in the background along with an odd soapy smell. Funky light-struck flavor. Flavor isn’t too offensive but it’s not too complex . Beyond the aforementioned skunkiness, there is a decent amount of hops but I’m once again hit with a strange soapy flavor. I feel like I’ve missed out on this beer. I’ve never had a particularly fresh sample on draft or in a bottle and while I taste potential, I’ve never been very impressed with this one.

Flowery and very hoppy aroma. Fairly average pilsner looks. Very hoppy taste with a very long aftertaste. Very delicious and very drinkable.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2009 This is a beer that i must have had a few 100 times but just never rated, had to get 6 because this got me a free glass. Pleasently suprised everytime with this fellow. Aroma is fairly full, with the hops different from the type im used too. Taste is also quite full with a good amount of bitterness and dry, very sessionable beer here. RERATE: Numerous bottles while walking home and on tap at the ragalah. Alround rating: Biscuity buttery malts, creamy if you will, grassy floral hop with some tangarine line skin oil subtkly there too, lots of bitterness. Alround an excellent drink.
