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.

A good, crisp pils. Yelloe coloredwith a subdued head. Aromas of citrus and hops. Has a smooth hoppy taste, with a crisp, clean finish. The green bottle have got to go, though. I've had skunked bottles of this.

adrian910ss (2571) - Doylestown, PA, USA - APR 5, 2004
Golden, yellowish in color with a small head. Slightly bitter in taste, but in a pleasant way. Good beer for drinking on a hot summer day.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2004
Bottle. Grassy hops aroma with some maltiness and black pepper. Just enough bitterness. Seemed to be a slightly old sample and a bit tired.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2004
On Draught Clear light gold with a small snow white head. Fresh grain aroma with a nice bit of hops to boot. Thin body and crisp with a slight bitterness in the finish that lingers. Flavor is fresh grains and not much else. The classic Pils. Refreshing and a great companion for a sandwich.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2004 This one is easy to sum up. Harp's Lager minus the wonderful aroma with a little less taste. Can I be more concise? I think not.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2004
Can 500ml. I've tried a number of these but always from a bottle and of corse I found them skunky, hoping for better results from a can. Poured a rich golden colour with a creamy inch thick head. Hops in the nose and somehow I'm getting a hint of yeast, I must be wrong I'll re-rate later, some floral hints as well. The flavour is quite good. Hoppy, dry, good carbonation, lingering hops finish.I liked this from the can and despite the 2.27cnd.per can price tag I will buy more in the future.Good summer drinkin' I think.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAR 27, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2008 Pours a bright gold with a big fizzy head. A bit too carbonated even for the style. Some hop bitterness but thats it. I’ve heard this was much better about twenty years ago. 6, 4, 6, 3, 12 re-rate- Pours brilliant gold with a pillowy white head that lasts and lasts. The aroma is biscuity, with hop notes of lemongrass, fresh herbs, lavender and a hint of fresh baked bread. Body is med-heavy, restorative, yet dry and refreshing. The flavor is med-sweet, gloriously hopped and deliciously malty. This is one hell of a good beer and I am damn glad they started covering the neck. Do wish they would start going with the brown bottles but this is a good start.

As a newbie I have a hard time identifying different hops, but after trying this I'll always know Saaz at least. I was surprised and pleased with the dryness of this beer, and not so much with the bit of skunkiness I detected. A good pilsner I suppose, though I'm not a big fan of the style. My friend says that this is much better hand pulled in the Czech Rep.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2006 Better than most, pours nicely with a quick minute head, golden yellow. Well received pilsener.

Pours real nice almost golden color. Nice active white head, disapates quick but leaving a fair lace down the glass. Smells of grain, hay, a bit medicinal and skunky but hints of hop are present. Taste is sharp as the skunk smell really didn't pull through. Bits of grain, hay and malt up front with it blending pretty well in the middle. Finishes with a snappy hop zip, along with a pinch of salt along the back of the tongue. Perky, light with a feeling of indistinct normality. This slides right in with the Heineken Lager, Tsing Tao mix very well. Don't expect anything overally complex and you wont be let down. This is a solid example of a well done Pilsner and shouldn't be judged otherwise. A fine beer. Far superior than anything else mentioned in my review.
