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 gold-yellow with a two-finger white head. Light malts and sharp earthy hops in the aroma. Pleasant flavor, with a light hop finish. Very drinkable, of course.

My brother in laws favorite, being the Worlds First Pilsner and all. I find it to dry and a little bitter. It does have a clean taste to it, surprisingly how the hops finishes bitter.

From a bottle. This beer has a hoppy aroma and a nice golden appearance with very little head. This is a crisp beer with a slightly bitter, dry finish. There is a very subtle sourness that surprised me. Overall a good drink, but not a great drink.

One of the first beers that I have fallen in love with. Great hoppy malt flavour with a dry bitterness at the end of a gulp that leaves your mouth crisp and clean. A very subtle but very real sweetness after taste that leaves you loving and wanting more of this wonderful stuff. I might be new to this beer rating stuff but I knows what I like...I love this beer!!

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Pours a deep golden yellow with a small white head that lingers. Aroma of fresh hops and some malts. Crisp flavor that follows aroma, with a clean finish.

Panzerfaust (848) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JAN 3, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2006 Pours a deep golden color with a small and quick head. Aroma is very hoppy, wih floral notes and some tree leaves. Fine attacking mouthfeel. Flavor shows a full hoppy bitterness, strong for a Czech Pilsener with a very sour and citric end. Not my cup of tea.

Draft at Dakota Grill and Spirits. Good to know what a Pilsener is supposed to taste like. Nothing real exciting, but then again it’s a pisener. It wasn’t difficult to drink. Decent aromas, and a pleasing flavor.

I love this beer! I drink a lot of NW beers, and often forget about imported beers like this. I don’t know why. Served out of a bottle at a local restaurant. Pours big white creamy head (looks like snow). Aroma is beautiful! Saaz pouring out of the glass. Crisp typical lager smell. Malty and clean. First taste is a perfect blend of malt and hops-bread and spice-grain and herbs. Bitter snap brings you back out of the glass. Take a another drink fool. I COULD LIVE IN THIS GLASS!!!
