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.

slight skuny aroma. Light golden color with little head. Slight skunky taste of corn, grass and hops. Not the best tasting pilsner I’ve tasted.

Pours golden smells the way beir should smell white head diminishes to globs in lace that last the duration. Has that hops taste, moderate carbonation that feels good in the mouth not pins and needles. The first time I had this brew was 50 kilometers out of Plzen Czech at the recommendation of an Austrian acquaintance that highly recommended this beer, and I was not disappointed and was glad to find it extremely available .

i nice pilsener and an awesome experience. drank this beer throughout prague, in my opinion not quite as good as the budweiser budvar but definately worth a trip to the brewery in Plzen.

(0.5L Can) Pours yellow with ordinary white head. Well balanced flavor overall, with a sweet aroma. A pretty good Pils.

Bottle, 660ml. A yellow colour pour with a large diminishing head. A nice hoppy aroma. Taste of hops with a bitter hop finish with an occasional hint of grass or citrus. Light to moderate carbonation. Not much more to say really - it’s a Bohemian Pilsener and that’s what it tastes like.

"Poured a golden color with carbonated head. Aroma was grassy hops little snunk to it Flavor was typical for pils grassy hops, bitter aftertaste. It wasn’t bad for a pils."

The Original Pilsner is still the Ultimate Pilsner. Well balanced in flavor and with a relativly rich aroma. Me likey!

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2008 Pours golden with perfect clarity and a thin white film. Aroma is flowery and spicy. Good saaz aroma and flavor, however it’s balanced by a smooth, slightly sweet malt character, reminiscent of sweet potato. Dry/peppery finish. Definitely one of the better mass-produced offerings.

Beerdedone (3480) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006
Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Poured golden with a thick long lasting white head, aroma of skunkiness, malt, and yeast, the taste is bitter, and malty, not bad just wasnt impressed.
