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.

UDBeernut (2871) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Bottle poured into a pint glass. Straw yellow color capped by a foamy white head, ok retention with light lacing. Smell of grass, hay, light cracker. Taste is same followed by light spunkiness. Light bodied, not a terrible beer. Wish they shipped in amber glass or cans to preserve better. Rated via BeerBuddy

Bottle. How can I not have rated this before? Clear deep golden liquid with medium egg shell white head. Good head retention. Aroma of floral hops, bread, light metal, grain, light earth and light cardboard. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of grain, bread, light corn and floral hops. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Seems to be about five months old from looking at the best before date, which is too bad. Have had this in way better condition before.

Drinking an imported can, far from the source, so score is low. If in Prague, drinking this beer, score might be perfect.

thedudeenthused (19) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2017
UPDATED: APR 25, 2017 Poured from a can. Orangy gold, thin white head. Gentle grassy hoppiness and low malt in the nose. Soft in the mouth. Sweet but chalky. Has a good bite or sharpness. Well balanced. Lingering bisquity bitterness (some criticize this) in the finish w/ some undernotes of honey crossing the tongue. It’s the most imitated Pilsner for a reason.

Clear golden colour,white head.Dry and bitter. Malty citrus but with a moldy after taste. It’s fine but not particularly enjoyable.

lkmetal (16) - Batley, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2017
Poured from 500ml bottle with little head. Color is a rich gold, very different from the anemic hue of most lagers. Aroma is much richer than the average lager with a stronger hop presence. Taste is very much akin to the aroma, much more hop flavor than the average lager with the familiar taste of malted barley. Flavor is a lot stronger than I was expecting with some citric undertones. Definitely the best lager on the market. Recommended.

Perfecta cerveza, su olor a heno, su sabor a cereal, si te gustan las lager, no puedes pasar sin probarla.

Steffan (71) - WALES - APR 21, 2017
One finger head that lasts most of the glass. Light body dark yellow. Easy on mouthfeel some delicate sweet malts balances with lingering bitterness. Tastes much better than it’s 4.4 abv. The best non premium pils and the original pilsner is still top drawer. Got a cupboard full of these!

L’ho bevuta in bottiglia e non mi č piaciuta, soprattutto per la corposa presenza dell’amaro.
