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.

Beerio (48) - USA - OCT 7, 2007
Ok...let me start by saying I bought a 4-pack of 16oz cans at a local liquor store...I had never seen this beer in cans before. There exists a charming appeal when a decent beer is placed in a can that I cannot really explain...I am not sure if my dick was playing tricks on me, but it tasted supernaturally good, ice cold, in the can...much better than the omnipresent bottles...My advice, order the cans from the local package store and shove the bottles into your wife’s cunt.

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 (130) - 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 (1342) - 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 (13) - 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 (24) - 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 (56) - 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.

Hopverdju (817) - BELGIUM - NOV 26, 2016
Goudblond bier met mooie witte wand klevende schuimkraag. Geur: mout, granen, licht hoppig. Smaak: begint licht zoet en gaat naar licht bitter. Lichte body. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Weinig afdronk, licht bitter. Niet onaangename pils.
