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.

Bottle best before 3/13, so I assume this is fresh enough. Pours a deep golden with a pillowy white head. Aroma is a big whiff of skunk that fades to a crisp hoppiness. Taste is some hop tartness and clean, dry malts. Very crisp and refreshing. An excellent pilsner.

Keg at Miller & Carter, Reading. Pale gold with a large white head and a thin, slightly prickly fizz. Grassy flavour, tending towards minerality. Bitter compared to other well-known lagers, although still not that bitter. Dryish, crisp and clean- I can see why some people like it; it does have a certain elegance, but for me personally I found the flavour a little unpleasant.

toscanoigor (136) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - DEC 6, 2016
Cerveja amarela, clara, creme branco de boa formação e ótima duração. Aroma de pão, malte, grama, bem suave. Sabor acompanha o aroma: bem suave, forte presença do malte no começo, final seco e levemente amargo. Corpo médio, bem carbonatada, com formação de bolhas comum. Equilibrada e refrescante, um clássico.

radassace (84) - SCOTLAND - DEC 3, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours a golden amber with a small white head. Nicely carbonated. Nose is malty, grainy, bit of lemon and straw. Full of flavour with a nice hop kick in the after taste. Fantastic stuff, so refreshing and drinkable.

invinoveritas (133) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2016
Pours a sprightly golden with an acceptable head. Fairly rich malty aroma which carries through on to the taste. Good body, not watery. Overall not bad at all.

anstei (1365) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 2, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a medium head. Aroma is grassy and buttery, quite dirty. Body is light to medium with a lively and carbonation. Short palate. Good drinkability, well done, yet not super exciting.

Simoonthph (14) - Czechowice-Dziedzice, POLAND - DEC 2, 2016
Piwo o jasnozłotej barwie, klarowne. Piana dość obfita, długo utrzymująca się zdobiąca szkło. W aromacie słód, chmiel i nuty ziołowe oraz kwiatowe. Smak słodowy, ziołowa goryczka na średnim poziomie. Nasycenie dość wysokie. Ikona stylu jak przystało bez wad/ Klasyczny Pilsner

BrewWhatIWant (34) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2016
Pours a pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma is malt and floral. Taste is the same, super maltyand crisp with cereal notes and a light floral hoppiness. This is probably the purest malt flavour I have ever tasted in a beer. Easy drinking and smooth. If this is the original pilsener, why does every other one I have had taste like skunky feet?

DonGregorio (61) - POLAND - NOV 28, 2016
330 ml bottle. Pours clear golden with average, mostly diminishing white head. Aroma is malty, cereal, hay, with some herbs and unfortunately significant skunk. Taste is light malty, grainy sweet and medium herbal bitter, more pleasant than aroma. Bitterness is short and clean. Medium body, average carbonation, rather thin texture. Not bad, refreshing pils, but green bottle version should be avoided - better try it from tap or can.

The first pilsner in the world as it should be. An ethalonique one. Good mass beer beer with a pleasant bitterness. Recomeded with czech pork dishes.

Golden. Malty. Some diacetyl. Bitterish. Slightly watery. Great for picnics and straight outta can.
