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.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 Perhaps this embodies the style perfectly, if so than I blame the style and not the beer. Light pour from tap, yellowish color with little aroma. Sharp carbonation with floral hops and a slight honey finish. Little substance, thin and far too subtle for my palate. Would I drink again? no.

Gold with a thin head and a sweet, malty nose. Easy intro with light carbonation and finishing bready and honey-sweet.

Couldn't believe I hadn't rated this as drank dozens of pints in the past. Once downed 3 pints through a funnel in Prague. Anyway, an excuse for a beer. Appearance - golden with steady carbonation. Thin head. Nose - sweetcorn and green beans. A light metallic note. Taste - more boiled vegetables. Light Saaz spice. Again a touch metallic. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture. Dry bitter finish. Overall - good Pilsner from the original home.

Bottle 330 ml at Pergola on the Roof, Wood Lane. Aromas are malts and subtle citrus. Fluffy white head, clear golden body. Taste is sweet malts. Well balanced with slight citrus finish. Good pilsner overall.

The father of Czech beer. Still so good although massivelly produced. But I am from Pilsen so my rating goes from heart.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2017 Goudblond. Fijne witte schuimkraag. Aroma : mout, graan. Zacht van smaak. Relatief laag in koolzuur. Redelijk zoet, zelfs vleugje vanille waarneembaar. Qua pils zeer goed te doen.

Thin and a bit metallic. An aggressive but acceptable bitterness is it's predominate characteristic. Very long lasting aftertaste of the bitterness and metallic note. I enjoyed it and found it refreshing even though it was a bit on the bitter side for me ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Just realised that i haven't rated this classic brew, so I must do it right away... Pours clear golden with a large slightly off-white head. Aroma has sweetish maltiness and a hint of herbal notes too. Taste is rather similar; malty caramel and fruit flavour, combined with moderate crispy hops. Smooth mouthfeel. Average carbonation. Tasty and well-balanced brew.

Różnorodnych palet smakowych tu nie odnajdziemy, ale piwo w swoim słodowym smaku w żaden sposób nie odrzuca jak większość komercyjnych piw. Jest bardzo przyzwoite

Well, the original one, the first i used to drink, the reference to judge the others.
