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.

An excellent light beer. From the home of pilsners (Pils, Czech Republic), is yet another example of the master breweres from Eastern Europe. Clear, light, refreshing

Can. Pours clear yellow with a small vanishing head. Good ol saaz. I’d like to try this beer on tap where it is made.

Bottle, golden color, minimal head and lacing, strong aroma of skunk and tastes skunky as well. I’m not big on the whole green bottle style of skunky beers.

(500ml can) Strong aroma, very pilsenery. Golden-orange in color. A sweet malty accent. Nice white head which diminishes rather quickly. Very little lacing. A fair amount of bitterness. Nice, gentle, lasting bitter finish. Good carbonation. Slight hoppy aftertaste. I like the balance of this beer.

I did not enjoy this beer. It had an aftertaste that did not agree with me. A bit skunky for my taste.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2010 12 oz bottle - Note, I am not a pilsner fan. I’ve had too many flavorless, yellow, fizzy beers in the style. But this one is actually pretty good. Pours a fairly thick, moderate duration head, not much lacing. Taste is pretty light as one would expect for a pilsner, but finishes with the bite of Euro hoppiness. It lacks complexity, but I could drink a few of these without complaint. Rerate 1/24/2010: Excellent crisp hops in the flavor, a little citrus, great balance and drinkability. A fine pilsner. Bumped rating from 3.3 to 3.5.

Nice beer. Crisp, light. It’s a pilsner, so if you like pilsner, you’ll probably like this. Maybe a little skunky, but all in all a good bet. No strong leaning one way or the other with regard to rating criteria. Good session beer.

Overrated. Skunky. Rich beer with some Mass Producto qualities, I am not a big fan of skunkies.

The 1 pt., 6.3 fl. oz. bottle yields a crystal clear, pale gold bodied beer with a large, tight white head with good lacing. Hops and light, sweet malt dominate the aroma, although there is a bit of hay in the nose as well. The sweet palate entry is complemented by a nicely hopped, long, dry finish. There is a limited flavor palate, mostly light malt with a hint of butterscotch. This is a very good, mass-produced beer.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2005 very light and refreshing look, but looks can be deceiving. starts fine and then goes downhill from there. maybe i had a bad bottle but i thought it was funk, smelled of skunk. may have to try this one again because i don’t remember it being offensive in the past. roadkill Had again during a beer tasting party. Much better than before, convinced I had a bad bottle. Not a big fan of the bitter, overly hoppy taste though.
