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.

Light golden color with a nice white head. Herbal and hop aroma. Nicely balanced pilsener. A little malty at first, then a nice slightly bitter finish.

Draught in a 500ml shaker. Clear gold, white head& light carbonation. Good lacing. Grassy aroma. Good bitter taste, malt & some apple. OK mouthfeel. Bitter finish. Refreshing & easy drinking. Had four with a pub lunch.

Finally get around to rating this one. Draft at Jet Rock in the Philly Airport. Not much to look at, and not much aroma, but boy is it yummy. Perfect malt hop balance.

RIch golden, with fine head. Some floral saaz, delicate nose. Crisp, light with mild hop finish...Nothing wrong with it though not very interesting.

as far as a pilsner goes this is probably as good as i gets. A big step up from budweuser, but still nothing I would buy again. Very clean and light on the mouth, with a crisp finish

Crisp and clean. Not much nose to speak of. When cold it is actually very refreshing, but so is an ice cold glass of water. A great chugging beer.

(on bottle)Being this my 100th rating, I´ve fallen upon the first "exotic" beer I ever had. The pilsner the other ones look up to and so on and so forth. So tasting it again, is it that good? Well, it has a nice fresh/grassy sent and a golden color to look at. What hits me the most is, that so many "lower" pilsners, allways has too much carbonation and too many hops. This one is round and good, fine balance. Good for a warm day of harvesting hay or something.

This beer seems to be a hit or miss. I’ve had a few that were really bad, sort of skunky tasting. But, for the most part, the batches seem to be of good quality. When you get a good batch of this beer is tastes so refreshing. It’s not a heavy beer, but has good flavor, a nice balance, nice fruity and slightly bitter finish. If it weren’t for the bad bottles I’ve tasted, this beer would rate even higher.
