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.

Moretum (257) - Vienna, AUSTRIA, AUSTRIA - JAN 2, 2018
Klare, goldgelbe Farbe mit mittelporiger, ansehnlicher Schaumkrone. Angenehm ausbalancierter malziger Geruch mit einer leichten Fruchtnote. Sehr süffig mit leichtem Körper und aktiver Kohlensäure, die Malzsüße ist wiederum gut ausbalanciert, bitterer Abgang. Angenehm unkompliziertes und leichtes Bier, dem dennoch genügend Aromen eigen sind.

Pours light golden with heavy, foamy head. Aroma is toffee and light fruitiness. Taste is light caramel and nutiness. Finish is bitter. A reasonable pilsner.

Some minimal caramel aromas, but well balances sweet aroma is present. Pleasant taste of malt as well. Very transculent golden colour with some sparkling and minimal white head. Great taste for a supermarket bought beer.

this is probably the best beer in the world. it is very light to drink, yet it has so much taste to it. if rating this beer, you should go to czech republic and get ones from tank. it is important that it is draught properly with lot of foam as professional tappers do.

4.4% Czech Pilsner - Tank Beer - Plzensky Prazdroj (Pilsen, Czech Republic). Pours a clear, amber-golden beer, with fine carbonation, and a tight white head. The beauty in this beer is its depth and balance of flavour. Unlike its bottled, pasteurised counterpart, the spiciness dances on the palate, working with the carbonation to tickle the tongue. The malt is also rich and unapologetically bold, delivering a wholesome bread and caramel backbone. The fruitiness of this pilsner is also unique: there are definite hints of apple and banana, which add an entirely new dimension. Whilst some despise the taste of diacetyl, I firmly believe it has its place - notes of butterscotch popcorn balance the spicy hops, and provide an excellent accompaniment to the malt. My only criticism of this beer is the way in which it was served! Poured straight into the glass, with a thin head on top, the beer oxidises, and the head dissipate too fast. As a result, the bitterness becomes over-pronounced, and the beer loses its delicate balance. Rather, a generous glug of wet foam should be poured into the bottom of the glass, then the rest of the beer should be poured underneath it, providing a protective cap. This preserves the balance of the beer, and prevents it coming into contact with the air. This is surely one of the world's greatest pilsners - the original, and the best. 8/10

The original pilsner copied many times since it was first brewed. Still pretty good with a nice golden amber colour, lively carbonation and an attractive white head. Slightly sweet and caramel with a light refreshing body ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
