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.

brekeriet's rating

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 8/20
brekeriet (139) - - FEB 5, 2011
Bottle 330 ml. golden, clear appearance with a lasting thin head. Aroma: Sweet, hoppy, diacetyl, unfortunately quite oxidised. Sweet (sweeter than I remember) taste with a distinct bitterness. Light body with average carbonation, a bit oily in palate. The beer was very oxidised which lowers the aroma and overall score. I don´t think that´s acceptable when it is 5 months left of the shelf life. The high sweetness lowers the taste and overall score for me as well . I must say that I´m dissapointed of the beer in the bottle I drunk. I will try it again some time to see if it was a coincidence. C

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2017 overrated. not as good as in the past. quite similar to zlaty bazant. better in pub where they know how to serve it.

It’s a good attractive pilsner. Very smooth, not too gassy, a little yeasty, but good.

Slightly bitter. Strong aroma (skunky) but pleasant. Consistent head and lacing. It's widespread and cheap so it makes it a perfect beer for nights with buddies. Recommend!

Pours light, with limited head. Has the aroma of slight hoppiness with a hint of grass. Taste well reflects the aroma, though it has a smoothness that limits the hop profile. Aftertaste is minimal with a slight hint of clover. Told by a friend that this was a "must try" beer. Not sure I'd agree.

Daboch (113) - Gdansk, POLAND - OCT 15, 2017
Ładnie się prezentuje, złoty kolor biała piana. Aromat i smak słodowo-chmielowy. W smaku dominuje słod przełamany lekką goryczką chmielową. Rzeskie, posmak lekko owocowy. Wzorzec czeskiego pilsa. Można pić

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2017 Pours from the can, fizzy gold with sizable white head, tastes toasty and grainy

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2017 Alla spina. Birra eccezionale. Leggera super beverina, ma allo stesso tempo con un corpo importante è praticamente introvabile in 4,4 gradi alcolici. Amaro bilanciato ma presente grazie al luppolo Saaz. La amo.

eurekabrewer (39) - SPAIN - OCT 12, 2017
La primera y famosa. Equilibrada, limpia de golor y sabor. Noble y sutilmente herbal y maltosa.

zacgillbanks (5449) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2017
Bottle from ASDA, Washington. Pale golden coloured with a quickly disappearing white head. It has a gentle herbal and grassy flavour with floral fruity and earthy notes on the bitter finish. Good.
