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.

Bierdimpfe (558) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2016
Bright dark straw color with moderate activity. Foamy white 3 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, offering a decent amount of lacing. Flavors of sweet grains, faint caramel and lemon, saaz and noble hops. Low perception of sweetness, but highly sharp with a pleasant bitterness. Slick and smooth medium to full body with prickly carbonation. Light and short finish, lingering grainy notes and some grassy noble hops. Overall good quality craft. Lightly flavored grainy feel, almost nonexistent smell, while the finish offers the most flavors with a nice herbal feel, balanced citrus, and a very faint skunky feel. Very fresh and accessible.

klukas (184) - Rijeka, CROATIA - OCT 2, 2016
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into a narrow tulip glass. Appearance: Clear golden colour, with medium foam. Aroma: Gentle aroma of malt and grass. Palate: Medium body, light carbonation. Taste: Bread; Classic lager; Very gentle sweetness and very light bitter aftertaste. Overall impression: Pleasant, light, very drinkable. It would be better with more bitterness.

Definitely my favourite mass produced pilsner; The original! Smells nice and hoppy, Appearance is gold, bright, clear. Tastes very refreshing, with a great hoppy bitterness and perfect balance. Mouthfeel is fizzy and not thin. Overall a great beer. I wish more big brands would offer such a drinking experience.

Scurgo (3) - - SEP 21, 2016 does not count
Das original Pilsner Urquell ist der Inbegriff deutscher Braukunst. Was der Bayern Josef Groll da geleistet hat begeistert noch viele Jahre später. Ein herrlich frisches Pilsener wie es sein muss.

Skarecrow (450) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 18, 2016
330ml bottle BB 9/12/16 Golden color with good head. Slight grainy aroma. Mild bitterness with thin body and finish and a large does of wet cardboard which didn’t help matters. Would be good to try a fresher version again in future but I must say, I have had better Pilsner than this.
