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.

Palidor19 (3180) - Brandon, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2007 Strong Flavors of Malt and hops that over powers, filled with its crispness. somewhat sweet, a true definition of what a Pilsner is

beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 13, 2005
Golden colour with big creamy head, mild hoppy aroma. I expected a big hoppy taste but found it to be quite malty and sweet, followed by mild bitter aftertaste.

Ramenen (466) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - FEB 12, 2005
Tasted this beer many years ago, and since then I am trully a fan. It has a sharp, crisp flavor with a long malt aftertaste.

Stew41 (1967) - Phuket, THAILAND - FEB 12, 2005
Medium gold to orange, a little darker than expected. Lively nose, good lift. sharp, some citrus and malt, quite crisp.

Plenty of fizz and bitterness in the mouth, very zesty. Flavour profile is quite broad across the tongue. Finishes a bit hard but still a good drop.

Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2005
Bottled in Pilsen. Biscuit and some caramel, bitter hops, and quite a bit of skunky aroma intially - though it seems to dissipate. Golden amber clear body with thin off-white head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation, smooth. Starts with good acidity and bitterness, some biscuit in the sweetness of the malt. Crisp overall, with a decent hoppy finish. After is medium bitter but otherwise clean. Decent pilsener.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2006 The measuring stick for a pilsner. Refreshing and light compared to what I usually drink which is a good thing sometimes. Grassy nose, pale color, white head, crisp finish. What else can be said about one of the most famous beers in the world?

beerandrugby (210) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 11, 2005
Bottle. Coppery-golden color, very clear with a medium white head that laced well...very malty sweet-wet socks/ wet dog, yeasty aroma. Nice round malty flavor well hopped. This is a really good example of what the pilsner style should be...too bad not many others can get it right, I would get this again as it is the first pilsner I have ever really enjoyed. this would be a great lawn mower beer!

SSSteve (4006) - - FEB 9, 2005
Very crisp and refreshing. Very fizzy head that lasts. light to medium body. perfect blend of sweet and bitterness. but the best part about this beer is the palate. lively carbonation with a light body that goes down smooth. great beer.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2005
Clear gold w/ soft, billowy white head. Spicy saaz hop aroma w/ nice malt background. Soft, oily feel. Flavour is sweet, malty (w/ underlying notes of honey) & hoppy. Finish is moderately dry, spicy & nicely bitter. Had on the North American side of the pond.

Goldorak (438) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2005
Sampled out of the can, I’ve never dared to try it out of the green bottles. Golden/straw yellow, with a fluffy head that died down into patchy clumps that floated around the light lacing, something I don’t recall ever seeing from any other pilsner, czech, macro or other. Compared to most of it’s imitators, you can totally smell the grassy Saaz. I’m not hop-biased, it’s just as good to me as Cascade or Hallertau or all the others when it’s given the chance to shine, like in this case. Mid to light carbonation, light maltyness and grassyness, finished clean with mild hoppy aftertaste.
