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.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2006 Comme je me suis promi, version cannette de 500 ml. Couleur doré mi-foncé, petit collet. Arome faible d’houblon et un peu d’herbe. Goût d’houblon simplistique et rien de plus. Buvable mais c’est tout.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2015 Rerate. There is not one circumstance that i can imagine where i would turn down a pilsner urquel Overall a one of the best pilseners I’ve had. Considering you can get it everywhere that’s cool too. I guess I’d be content to drink this at a bar or restaurant.

Been many years since I’ve sampled one so shared a draught with my wife while out to dinner last night. Medium clear golden color under a thick and durable bone white head. Aroma is dominated by the utilization of Saaz hops which is PU’s trademark; pleasantly grassy and lemony. Palate was a bit on the thin and fizzy side. Taste seemed too grainy (adjuncts?) with a medicinally bitter hop contribution. Finish was refreshing and clean, but quick

12 oz bottle: poured a light gold color with a slighty yellow head. Slight smell of hops, wasn’t too excited to try after smelling. Taste was slightly bitter but not enough for my liking. Not my favorite pilsner

12 oz. bottle: Poured, it foams to a huge, semi-dense slightly yellow head that subsided to about an inch in 1 minute, leaving small bits of lacing. Aroma is mostly Saaz hops with their grassy smell, with just a trace of citrus. Extremely clear straw colored with a few very small bubbles coming from the bottom. After 2 minutes, the head is 1/4". Tastes as carbonated as it looks and acts. The Saaz hops are the main taste here adding almost the perfect amount of bitterness to compliment the secondary malt and citrus tastes. Carbonation and hop taste is left on the tounge for a bit after swallowing. Extremely smooth. More flavorful than a lot of pilsners, yet delicate and fairly complex for this style of beer. One of my favorites.

KUEric (976) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 20, 2006
12oz Botttle: Pours a golden straw color with a thin fluffy head. The aroma is of grass, hops. The taste is pilsner. A full flavored, good pilsner.

Very nice Bohemian Pilsner, no doubts here, but I must admit that I had expected a little more than what it offered to me. I would rather prefer something like Staropramen, Kozel or Budvar, but that’s each one’s preferences. Anyway world class beer!

Bottle. Poured light gold/yellow. The head which was a nice white one dissipeared so quickly I was not looking forward to the first sip. Smells of hops are faintly there. Ok bitterness and some wheat flavor is prevelent. The score is much too high in my opinion. This beer was mediocre. Its like a full-flavored bud light. I’d rather have a Stella Artois to be honest.

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2006
can. corn and hops aroma. Clear golden color with bubbles and light white head thats goes off quickly. Taste is lightly fruity and hops. Good Pilsner, nothing to do with bud and ... Bière de couleur doré, avec des bulles dans sa robe et un mince collet blanc qui disparait assez rapidement. Odeur de houblon et mais. Au goût, elle est légèrement fruité avec une légère amertume. Bonne Pilsner, rien a voir avec Bud et compagnie.

Old reliable. Wonderful bitterness. Clean and refreshing. Good beer to start out with as you work yourself through a flight.
