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.

MikeT (76) - Hollis, New Hampshire, USA - APR 28, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2005 Very nice golden color with a citrus aroma. Permiating pilsner maltflavor that smoothly blend to a hop bitter. Head was thick but dissapated to a thin covering that laced nicely. The first of the Pils, and still a very good one.

A very fine pils in my opinion, from the style’s home. Nicely hopped, and well-carbonated. My favorite international of this style.

masedawg (156) - Statesville, North Carolina, USA - APR 26, 2005
Nice looking beer. Rich Golden color. Retains its head nicely, though it is small to start with. Good lacing. Taste is slightly water with nothing that sticks out flavor wise. Honestly I was a little dissapointed.

Bailz316 (256) - North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2005
UPDATED: APR 30, 2005 Golden beer with fast dissipating white head. Lively beer and medium bodied. Smooth although a bit watery. Herbal aroma. Moderately bitter finish.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - APR 25, 2005
660ml bottle from Sainsburys. Excellent oily hop aroma. Good body. Long dry finish. My best Pilsner so far.

mjurney (64) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2005
Pours out nice golden color with a head. Nice crisp, clean and hoppy flavor with slightly malt finish. Not bad.

hair-old (191) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 This beer is always in my refrigerator.Now in .33 ltr brown bottles. The Benchmark Pilsner. Saaz hops are very expensive and this brewer uses plenty!

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 21, 2005
Draft: Golden pour topped with a nice foamy head. Spicy oily aroma. Suprisingly rich on the palate, with lots of spicy Saaz flavors. Just a hint of butter and a bit of that ’tang’ that can sneak in there if a beer sits on attenuated yeast too long. Overall, quite nice.

Bigsky66 (148) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2005
Really skunky this one is and a little off balance with the bitterness at the end. The high skunkness and the bitter did not mesh well.

Asmodeus (4) - Blairstown, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2005 does not count
Not bad. Pretty up front with what it’s trying to do -- can be skunky, but overall it’s fairly clean and a little more dry tasting than other european green bottle imports.
