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.

330 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. Thanks, I guess. The pour is a darker golden orange with a thicker bubbly light gray head and a few spots of lace. The aroma is very grainy. There is a light funk to it and a little urea happening. It’s like smelling cold wort. There is a light sweet potato thing happening, but it’s a mess. The flavor is much of the same. There is the wort thing happening. There is a dark cereal graininess and just a general mess about this. The mouth feel is a little syrupy and grainy with a strong sweetness and a sweet potato addition that I’m not too happy with. This is messy from front to back. Ugh.

Bottle shared with koleminer20. For the book. Aroma is funky, cereal, toasted corn, wheat, smells like a Czech pils. Appearance is golden, white head, clear. Taste is grains, cereal, corn, it tastes like a bag of ingredients used to make the beer without making it. Slightly funky flavor as well but not as prevalent as in the aroma. Mouthfeel is light body, light crisp carbonation, grainy earthy hop aftertaste. Overall, it’s about as expected, but I imagine I can drink better for the style.

A bit buttery, yet not repelling. Fair bitterness. Not bad for an everyday beer.

Slightly darker than golden with visible carbonation. Average white head, decent retention and some lacing. Aroma shows hay, grass, and lemonish hints. Decently fresh. Taste has a slightly crisp/crackery malts base, slight citrus, notes of grass and maybe some floral hops hints. Medium to low sweetness and medium bitterness, finishes dry and slightly on the bitter side. Light bodied with low to medium carbonation, just enough to bring a touch of pleasant crispness. Overall not remarkable, though undoubtedly well made.

Bouteille 33. Une référence historique mais quoi d’autre qu’une "Pils" ! Ressemble à d’autres pils : belle couleur, nez médiocre, bouche désaltérante sur les céréales et les épices.

Barwa złocista,piwo idealnie przejrzyste. Piana na początku obfita małe pęcherzyki wraz ze średnimi, piana niestety bardzo szybko opada, coś tam oblepia szkło... Aromat: słodowy, jest w nim typowa nuta aromatyczna dla pilsów oraz oczywiście diacetyl dosyć wyczuwalne nuty maślane, poprawne dla jasnych czeskich piw, nie jest go przesadnie dużo. Smak: słodowy, lekko wyczuwalny chmiel. Piwo lekkie, wodniste. Wysycenie wysokie, goryczka niska jednak wyczuwalna. Zdecydowanie lepsze niż koncernowe polskie piwa, jednak jakość nieadekwatna do ceny. Piłem nie raz piwo z butelki jak i z pompy, w tym przypadku jest niebo a ziemia, pilsner smakuje znacznie lepiej z pompy

Muy buena pilsner, sabrosa, maltosa, con un aroma frutal y llena de lupulo. Refrescante para el verano y excelente opción como aperitivo. Como siempre, mucho mejor que la lager. Muy recomendable para los amantes de la cerveza buena y aromática.

Draught at the counting house Eastbourne. One of the better pilsners in the world and feels good to know its story from visiting Plzen. More colour & depth than most.

Dry and bitter. Malty citrus but with a moldy after taste. It’s fine but not particularly enjoyable.
