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.

BrewWhatIWant (59) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2016
Pours a pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma is malt and floral. Taste is the same, super maltyand crisp with cereal notes and a light floral hoppiness. This is probably the purest malt flavour I have ever tasted in a beer. Easy drinking and smooth. If this is the original pilsener, why does every other one I have had taste like skunky feet?

DonGregorio (118) - POLAND - NOV 28, 2016
330 ml bottle. Pours clear golden with average, mostly diminishing white head. Aroma is malty, cereal, hay, with some herbs and unfortunately significant skunk. Taste is light malty, grainy sweet and medium herbal bitter, more pleasant than aroma. Bitterness is short and clean. Medium body, average carbonation, rather thin texture. Not bad, refreshing pils, but green bottle version should be avoided - better try it from tap or can.

Hopverdju (899) - BELGIUM - NOV 26, 2016
Goudblond bier met mooie witte wand klevende schuimkraag. Geur: mout, granen, licht hoppig. Smaak: begint licht zoet en gaat naar licht bitter. Lichte body. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Weinig afdronk, licht bitter. Niet onaangename pils.

Simoonthph (33) - Czechowice-Dziedzice, POLAND - DEC 2, 2016
Piwo o jasnozłotej barwie, klarowne. Piana dość obfita, długo utrzymująca się zdobiąca szkło. W aromacie słód, chmiel i nuty ziołowe oraz kwiatowe. Smak słodowy, ziołowa goryczka na średnim poziomie. Nasycenie dość wysokie. Ikona stylu jak przystało bez wad/ Klasyczny Pilsner

Golden. Malty. Some diacetyl. Bitterish. Slightly watery. Great for picnics and straight outta can.

Aroma: Feet and dirt ; Appearance: pale golden, clear, minimal head ; lightly bitter, lightly sour ; light body, thin feel, average carbonation, short finish. Overall a mediocre beer, with absolutely no distinguishing traits, and a feet aftertaste (and smell).

anstei (1471) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 2, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a medium head. Aroma is grassy and buttery, quite dirty. Body is light to medium with a lively and carbonation. Short palate. Good drinkability, well done, yet not super exciting.

The first pilsner in the world as it should be. An ethalonique one. Good mass beer beer with a pleasant bitterness. Recomeded with czech pork dishes.
