COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
GriffDaddy (112) - - SEP 20, 2013
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.

LeoN_ (57) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAY 19, 2017
Goldgelb, relativ wenig schaum. Frisches aroma: hefig, zitrone, bisle gräser. Pilstypisch aber schon recht differenziert. Antrunk mild, cremig. Abgang pilstypisch eindimensional, aber es versucht auch nicht mehr zu sein als es ist. Ein für eine massenbrauerei unüblich gutes pils!

tgrtnr (123) - Augsburg, GERMANY - MAY 16, 2017
330 ml bottle served in flute. Golden with decent white head. Grassy and hoppy smell. Grapefruit, hay, grass, grain, bread, metal. Nice hoppy bitterness and some bready maltiness. Soft carbonated, watery texture. Very palatable, nice bitter finish. Great character for a mass produced Pils. Very nice.

On tap in Prague. Well balanced, highly drinkable with low hop notes and low bread character.

antsaluga (98) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 14, 2017
Piwo doskonale złote, Kalrowne. W zapachu raczej niewiele, lekko slodowo, herbatniki. W smaku jest goryczka, ale nie jakas wyjątkowo przyjemna. Poza tym lekkie masło. Nic specjalnego.

Pours straw with a decent head. Malt and biscuit on the nose. Carbonation is good with a decent mouthfeel for the style. Plenty of grain and cereal flavour with bready notes. Finishes smooth enough. Certainly the standard for any mass produced pilsner. I always enjoy this.
