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.

Good for a pilsner. I dotn really like thids style too much. Almost a ’pepper’ taste to it. Very clean beer.

A good pilsner. I would get it again if I was looking for a lighter beer.

Mild hoppy aromas and a bit lacking on maltier qualities. Nice dark gold coloring. Crisp finish. Only a little funky but this is not a consistent quality of each batch.

Pretty good. Pale color with OK head and no lacing. Typical Pils, only OK. Nice initial taste and a decent finish. Not bad.

Has a golden color and has a lot of flavor and bite, and a little bitter. I guess I was expecting better but maybe i’m just not a pilsner kinda guy.

Golden with thin white head. Aroma is hoppy and grassy. Mouthfeel is very thin. Flavor starts of grassy, moves to bitter with a hint of citrus. Too watery and too weak to be excellent, but not bad by any stretch of the imagination

Woohoo!!! Our 100th rating on ratebeer!!! So we decided to go with an old "classic" for better or worse. The smell is of frat basement coated in fritos and sweat socks, but still it smells like beer so you wanna drink it. The appearance is a classic clear yellowy lagery whatever. The taste is a little chewy, a little skunky (the green bottle rears its head), but pretty smooth, too. Kinda similar to Heineken really, but you know, kind of good instead of being gross. This is one that probably seemed a lot better when it was one of the only non-crap beers available widely in the late 90s-early 2000s, but it seems a little blah in the modern era. Good for achieving a milestone that no one thought you could do so quickly. Huzzah to Meeeeeccccaaahhh!!! 69lol

Clear golden with a very small head. Aroma is standard pilsner. The flavor is on the other hand much better than standard. More hoppy and a bit sweeter. It also has a very smooth feel to it.

I’ve had this on tap, from a green 12 oz. bottle, and a .5 litre can. This IS the original that other pilseners are measured. Get a good one and you are in heaven. A skunky one and you wonder what the hype is all about. Let’s focus on the good. When good there is nothing better in a pale lager. The pour reveals a large head that laces down the glass. The hop aroma screams Saaz as does the bitter flavor. Then you lick your lips and taste the sweetness of the malt. A good glass of this doesn’t get much better for a pilsener drinker.

I don't think this was too fresh. It almost tasted skunky. Had a plesant bitterness but there were many undesired off flavors present. Overall not too bad. Hopefully I will be able to try one that is a little more fresh next time.
