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.

This was pretty good. the aroma was dominated with green apples. I don’t much care for the aenemic amber colour, but it did have a decent head with some nice lacing. Again with the hint of green apples in the flavour, some sweet(er) malt flavours finsihing with a bit of hops. No lingering aftertaste. Not my favourite style, but a good beer to drink cheaply and in mass.

I personally enjoyed this beer. It had the pleasant aroma of a cider. It poured a light amber color with a little bit of orange and plenty of carbonation. The appearance enticed me. The after taste didn’t last too long but it ended with a fruit flavor. Body was a little thin. Overall it was the perfect beer to drink at a yuppy bar.

330ml bottle,only 55p from my local Safeway!!! Deep golden head with a respectable thick white head. Absolutely bursting with attractive hoppy/fruity aromas,soft malt coming through in the background. A medium bodied brew, with an amazing array of complex flavours...malty& fruity...fantastic.There is a sweetish malty finish combined with a citrus hoppiness. It’s been a while since I tasted this as I felt it had lost some of it’s character, I may have been wrong then,but this has got me hooked again! Superb

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2007 This is an OK beer. It has that European type of hops and malt in the flavor with a hint of toast in the aftertaste. The aroma has latex hops and corn flakes. The real disappointment was the head. I was expecting it to be Euro lager so not much else to tell.

Poured gorgeous gold with center-fold quality foam. Aroma of quasi-funky pils hops (I’m not a big hops guy), but I enjoyed the crisp palate and cool finish. Some lingering after-skunk, though that could have been my specific bottle. I may try it again.

Can. Decent beer. Obviously a great attempt at the style (HA!). a little thin unfortunately and a little metallic. I will try this in a bottle and re-rate.

I poured a glass of this for a friend and upon tasting it he looked surprised and claimed that it tastes exactly how you would imagine beer should taste. Nice thick head. Clear and inviting with nice colour and aroma. Very enjoyable with a strong taste that finishes clean. Nice on its own or with food. Versatile brew that is a great one to give those who have never tasted anything but macros.

One of the best beers ever. I remember reading about this in 1979 and finally they started exporting it near me. Clear nice color, even crisper head. The flavor is bright, almost vibrant. Smooth as silk & as good as gold (as is the color)

Once,I wanted to debate the relative merits of several beers with a friend, and he, being very wise, stopped me short, handed me a bottle of PU, sipped his deeply and set me straight with these few, sage words, "Quite simply the best beer in the world!" And I thank you for that, Ron, everyday.
