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. Pours clear with fluffy white head. A drinkable pilsener for me with a decent balance.

Can 500ml. Golden with a good white head. Bread, malt, hops, flowers, grass in aroma and flavour. Hoppy finish. Really good pilsner.

MarcoBasile (280) - DENMARK - JUN 18, 2017
Pours golden with a white head that dissipates immediately. Pleasant aroma of pale malts and grain. Some subtle hops. Taste is sweet and grainy. Taste is dusty, old. Crisp. Slightly skunked finish. Watery texture, soft to medium carbonation

Fairly dark golden colour with white head. Decent retention. Aroma of straw and grass. Medium bitterness upfront, with a mellowing finish. Lingering bitter aftertaste is nice. Light body, soft carbonation. A really nice pilsener.

12oz bottle. Pours clear pale gold with a thin white head. Fresh, clean aromas, hops, hay, some sweet malt. Cereal, malt flavors. Lively carbonation, grassy finish. Clean and refreshing.

As tank beer @ Böhmisches Dorf, Berlin. Yellow, white head, very smooth and round, fine carbonation. I have the impression that tank beer is better than the bottled or carbonized version on tap - but I’ve never tasted them parallely - so it may also be the beer thirst. Very high drinkability.

Aroma - bread and hay smell mixed with a grassy note Appearance - Pours pale gold think white head that dissipates quickly and perfectly clear Taste - light sweetness and light to medium bitterness, has a bready taste much like the aroma, some caramel, a hop grassiness Mouthfeel - medium body, light carb (a bit flat to be honest, probably just unlucky in the bottle i got) Overall - Refreshing beer, nothing really special except the colour and the clarity. Absolutely crystal clear and a beautiful pale gold.

A: Deep gold with a medium white head N: Green bitterness, malt sweetness, just a hint of caramel. T: More caramel and toffee sweetness. Fortunately, the heavy hop bittering tames these potentially cloying flavours. Great balance. P: Medium O: Proof that older can sometimes be better.

kamillozo (177) - POLAND - JUN 3, 2017
Butelka. Piwo barwy złotej, krystalicznie klarowne. Piana biała, wstępnie średnio-obfita, drobna, ale niezbyt trwała. Aromat umiarkowany, zdecydowanie słodowy, chlebowy, z ziołowo - kwiatowymi nutami chmielu. Smak umiarkowanie słodkawy, słodowo-zbożowy, chlebowy ale z fajnie kontrującą chmielową goryczką w typie ziołowo-herbacianym na poziomie nisko-średnim. Pełnia, średnia - z pewnością nie można powiedzieć, że jest wodniste. Za ciało zdecydowanie plus. Dodatkowym plusem jest drobne i odpowiednie nasycenie.

3.3
svrakula (26) - SERBIA - JUN 2, 2017
Really good color and foam. Drinkable with good taste. Nothing special, but quality felt.

3.4
basjansen14 (366) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2017
Goud kleurig biertje met een snel verdwijnende witte schuimkraag. Aroma: moutig en wat karamel. Smaak: moutig, karamel, wat hop en een redelijk bittere afdronk.
