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.

Not a bad beer. Pours golden color. Skunky smell. Very refreshing. Vaut la peine d’être essayé.

Snoro (306) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2005
Une bonne blonde. C’est rare que j’aime une blonde, mais elle a un goût plus prononcée que d’autres. Pas d’arrière goût, c’est bon.

trafford (171) - Germantown, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2005
The skunky smell was hard to get past. No that I have tried the beer for the taste it has become one of my favorites. Nice pilsner with a hoppy aftertaste.

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2005
The odor of this brew is almost enought to cause second thoughts, but the flavor is well worth it. Despite the claims, this is NOT the world’s best pilsner, but the fine bite, pleasant wheat and smooth barley flavors make it quite worthwhile.

Quinten (1062) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2006 Golden color, wunderfull head I’f bin in the factory 15 years ago, and keping lots of good memory of this beer. Good one with nice grassy smell and taste.

Sregnar35 (1030) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - SEP 19, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2005 Smelled so skunky I almost didn’t want to drink it, but the taste isn’t bad. It’s got a good crisp dry bite from the saaz hops, it’s like a sweet, flavorful heineken. Had this on tap recently, and wow it’s great. Taste is very spicy with a pleasant aroma.

billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - SEP 18, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2008 Bottle 22 oz. Clear golden w precious few large bubbles rising. White head fell quickly to a thin film. Aroma is pale malt w Euro hops and a touch of grass & citrus. Flavor is immediately tart & tangy, dry malt and moderately bitter Euro tasting hops. Nice malt flavor and hop bitterness on the finish. Pushing medium bodied. A bit astringent & alcaline. Nice change from the big, sweet, hoppy American ales. 2/23/06 I’m upping this .2. I got a very good 22 ozer of this today. Very clean, and not the least bit harsh or stale tasting like it can sometimes be. Very refreshing, I wanted more big time. I really like the funky mineral water taste. Sometimes there is a very pleasant, although light, unique floral hop flavor with the bitterness. I also get a raw, natural, fresh, unique grain/barley taste on the better, fresher batches.

auerbrau (3204) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 17, 2005
BLBF. Was surprised by this one. Light marijuana aroma. Orangish yellow pour. Rich wheat malt and yeasty bready goodness. Finish is dry, but really decent. A departure from the other beers I’d had this evening. Yum.

rederic (3293) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2005
500ml can, golden color, with a frothy white head, floral hops, pale malt, tangy hop note in the nose, follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet malty accent, crisp drying hops flavors, leading to a good bittering finish.

Tejas (994) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2005
Clear gold. Zero head. Little peppery flavor. Tastes a bit macroish. Refreshing but nothing special.
