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.

I tried this from a 22 oz bottle on the train home, alte at night, suffering from a cold. That said, it made a really good impression. Nice little head formed in the bottle, and a really sharp Saaz hop bite I would never have expected in a pale lager. Really helped ease my suffering; and bless the 7-11 on Michigan Ave. for having a variety of beer to take home besides the usual 40's of malt liquor and Foster's oil cans!

Slightly bitter. Strong aroma (skunky) but pleasant. Consistent head and lacing. It's widespread and cheap so it makes it a perfect beer for nights with buddies. Recommend!

Pours light, with limited head. Has the aroma of slight hoppiness with a hint of grass. Taste well reflects the aroma, though it has a smoothness that limits the hop profile. Aftertaste is minimal with a slight hint of clover. Told by a friend that this was a "must try" beer. Not sure I'd agree.

Ładnie się prezentuje, złoty kolor biała piana. Aromat i smak słodowo-chmielowy. W smaku dominuje słod przełamany lekką goryczką chmielową. Rzeskie, posmak lekko owocowy. Wzorzec czeskiego pilsa. Można pić

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2017 Alla spina. Birra eccezionale. Leggera super beverina, ma allo stesso tempo con un corpo importante è praticamente introvabile in 4,4 gradi alcolici. Amaro bilanciato ma presente grazie al luppolo Saaz. La amo.

La primera y famosa. Equilibrada, limpia de golor y sabor. Noble y sutilmente herbal y maltosa.

zacgillbanks (5418) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2017
Bottle from ASDA, Washington. Pale golden coloured with a quickly disappearing white head. It has a gentle herbal and grassy flavour with floral fruity and earthy notes on the bitter finish. Good.

This is the lager that all other lagers should be measured by. Citrusy, fresh sweetness with a touch of bitterness and skunkiness describe this staple beer. Might be just a touch too bitter for my taste but this is a beer that I keep returning to.

3.2
NikitaDE (105) - Minsk / Schweinfurt, Bavaria, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2017
I would say - that is an example of the style (Czech Pilsener) and every should try this one. Amber crystal colour, nice lasting foam. Malty aroma, a beat sweet in taste, and nevertheless is a combination of spicy and sweetness. Short bitter but pleasant aftertaste. Drinkable.
