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.

Pours a crisp clear golden yellow color with a fizzy white head. Aromasof hops, grass, and grains. Flavor is a nice crisp hoppy/grain taste with a nice clean finish.

On tap, in Prague. Crystal gold color with small white head. Clean fresh taste. The standard for all Pilsners. Excellent.

Blazhock (4) - Oklahoma, USA - DEC 21, 2005 does not count
Had this on tap. Clean mildly fruity aroma. Gold in color. Small white head that was mostly lasting. Clarity was somewhat hazy. More hop note to this beer than what I expected. Has a dry refreshing palate. I liked this pilsener.

JoshuaB (476) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Had this many times, from bottle and tap, and never really could find myself liking it. Looks the part on most occasions, a crystal clear pale gold with lots of bubbles. Smells of light grass and some light Saaz hops, very crisp. taste is not so crisp. Usually I get a funky metallic or rubber taste that I will not attribute to the lines or storage conditions, as it is always there. Somewhat malty, somewhat bitter, with some Saaz. Drink it cold and fast, otherwise it may be a drain pour.

Yard (45) - Senoia, Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Good aroma, taste like a malty lagar. Medium body with a green bottle taste. Some hops. Not use to the style.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Never rated this out of a bottle because it always seems "off". Out of a tap, this is such great stuff! Malty and savory with an impressive hop presence. Very satisfying.

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2005
Ok pilsner - but not "exiting" enough in my humble opinion. A little hop and bitterness but to anonymous for me.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2006 Bottle- It’s nice that you can find this almost everywhere. It is really hoppy compared to several other pilsners that I’ve had and finishes really bitter.

EithCubes (5772) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2006 Re-rate from the elegant green bottle: Skunky first whiff but then the nose settles down into just hoppiness. Rich golden pour and a fizzy little white head. Really does set the bar for the style - thick, dragging body and lots of oily, hoppy bitterness. I take it over Bud. [3.3]

Original: Clean, thick, refreshing, a surprisingly good substitute for wine on Thanksgiving. One of the better Pilsner to be found. [3.0]

Clearamber appearance. Clean drink with hoppy finish. The carbonation complements the the astrigencey of the hops in perfect harmony
