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.

In prague for two weeks and drank pilsner out of 16 oz cans and loved every last drop

UPDATED: APR 13, 2010 From the bottle. Pours a golden brown color, darker than most Euro-macros. There is some grass in the nose, but not much. Taste is lightly sweet up front, smooth, with a medium bitter finish. The body is medium, bubbly. In Prague this flowed like nectar of the Gods and was obviously more fresh there. Here, it’s a little more skunky. Overall a good import when I get nostalgic for Praha.

Had this on draught at Falling Rock, Denver. Beer poured a crystal-clear, medium, warm, yellow color with a small, creamy, white, mosly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma was moderately malty with toasted grain; heavily yeasty with sweet notes of bread dough and cellar. The flavor was lightly sweet and moderately bitter with an average-length, heavily bitter with a sweet, milk-like finish and pretty honey retros. The body was medium-to-full, the texture was watery and the carbonation was lively. This has been the nicest sample of the style I’ve had this far.

12oz bottle- Nice sweet syrupy mouthfeel with a dry finish. A great deal of flavor for a pilsner. This beer is very drinkable and has a the hint of a sweet bread flavor. The beer pours a honey like color with little head and little lacing. Solid beer for the pilsner style.

Can, 500 ml; appearance: good head that vanishes quickly, yellow with some orangey reflection; nose: hops that is dominant giving an impression of freshness; mouth: hops dominate, followed by some bitterness and sweetness at the end

Ok, so now that I"m going through the list, I have had this one a few thousand times, so why not rate it. Pours out a clear yellow color wiht a decent head. Aroma smacks of Saaz hops and it should as they claim to be the first Pilsner. Taste is somewhat bitter, little skunky on the taste, I’d like to try a really fresh bottle of this to be a true judge of it, but the local store isn’t that good as far as freshness goes. This has become somewhat of an old stand by and not a bad one...warm weather beer though.

Bottled. It’s pale and grassy, a little gassy, not a hog but nor too classy.

The bottle is way better then draft. Had this in draft format and I was not a fan. Not that I am that big a fan of the bottled version, but it is much better. Highly hopped beer with the expected skunky taste but it was not bad. Slightly bitter.

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2006
12 oz. Bottle. Body is a pale golden yellow (although more vibrant than the mass-market American beers) with a 1 inch, quickly dissipating white head. Aroma smells somewhat skunky to me. Taste is better - hops with some citrus, although some of the skunkiness is still there. Palate is crisp and clean. I’m not much of a pilsener fan, but this is better than many.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2006 The second time around this is not as bad as I remember. Maybe all of the other Pilsners I have had have been skunky and stale. This one is still pretty unexciting, watery, and smells like dirt. Maybe some spices too. OK spicy dirt. Medium bodied.
