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 orange with small white head. Nose is hoppy and a little sweet. The flavor is dry, mildly bitter, with some spice, slight musty flavor, lots of hops flavor. Fairly crisp. Pretty good...is this what American lagers are trying to emulate?

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2005
Minimal head on top of golden orange liquid. Classic Saaz hops aroma, with a hint of spice. Dry and bitter, this is how one expects a pilsener to taste. Then again it is the original so I suppose that has to be the case!!

Classic pilsner with a very good aroma and nice fresh bitterness. Should be enjoyed from tap

paul9639 (116) - New Hampshire, USA - AUG 12, 2005
light amber with a white head. Aroma was that of a standard pilsner. Flavor was bitter and hoppy. Not that impressed. Will try on tap in Europe and rerate

Not a bad pilsner, rather smooth with a crisp finish, although the hops aren’t as powerful as some of the american craft version. Good beer to segway into better beers.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2005
Canette de la LCBO. Robe blonde très claire. Malt présent. Légèrement caramélisée. Houblon amérisant en arrière-goût, mais sans finesse.

birdwax (13) - Horsham, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2005
good pilsner from its birth place. classic pilsner taste, very hoppy, little skunky after taste bu the clean crisp taste comes from a very well balanced beer. good stuff.

Lubiere (13183) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2005
Golden pils with thin white head. Grassy grainy malt aroma with nice crisp hops. Saaz hops come out of the crisp chalky malt, nicely balanced. Medium bodied. Classic.

Hyom a bottle - Why does everybody else rate this beer ungodly high? Look, folks, it’s a Pilsner, a hopped up version of the Anerican Standard brew. Sure, it’s way better than ,say, Bud, but it’s not a personal favorite.
