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.

After 1000+ beers tried, this is the first time I have ever had this beer. Kind of strange. Oh well. Surprisingly, this is not skunked. Peppery, spicy hoppy nose...spritzy. Slight sweet notes. Transparent golden color with a nice firm frothy white head. Slightly sweet to start, turning slightly malty in the middle. Finishes spiced and peppery with a hint of dryness and bitterness. Crisp beer.

Tasty, refreshing and delicous. Everything Budweiser wishes it could be... A nice break from the summer heat.

Bottle. Pours clear golden color with a whitish head. Strong hops aroma. Almost fizzy mouthfeel from carbonation. Well balanced and refreshing.

Great lawnmower beer. very clean and crisp in the way Budweiser could only dream of. I have had better, but this is very solid.

a boquet of wild grass and flowers. bitter pinches with a twist of malt. I just wish that more brands could get a pilsner going as good as this.

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2005
Nice floral hop nose with a kind of crisp grassy feel to it. Creamy white head on top of a golden body, pretty. Flavor starts out smooth and finishes bitter. Got hints of sweet citrus. Very easy drinking beer. Not bad at all.

waeltzy (53) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2005
Interesting aroma. I can’t put my finger on it. It smells sweet. It smells like a pilsner (duh). Clearly a saaz hop with a balance of malt on the mid-taste. Aftertaste was a bit skunky and i might drink it again if it crosses my face but i would not pusuit this beer.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2005
Bottle. Clear straw, creamy white head. Big skunk aroma. Clean and malty with a slightly buttery and bitter finish. Both refreshing and satisfyingly complex. The body is noticably better than the last time I had it, a couple years ago. Really a well made lager. Now if they could only get a brown bottle.

eipi10 (1) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 8, 2005 does not count
The perfect beer to quaff for pure relaxation purposes while remaining dignified. Not very flavorful, not very complex. Almost as refreshing as beer can get (I’d go with a framboise for most refreshing). It is what it is.

Poured from a bottle in melbourne australia. The full body of this beer impresses me. Beers such as this one really do make the australian "largers" to shame, especially the premuim ones, such as crown larger or even VB or Carlton cold. Even if it may not be as fresh because of the export to melbourne, it still beats many local beers, especially any from CUB.
