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.

Supposedly, this Czech beer is the world's oldest pilsner. I didn't like it at all. Skunky taste. Highly overrated, if you ask me.

From the tap at Old Wild West, Rimini, Italy. Pours transparent gold with low white foam. Aroma is delicate grassy. Body is average with good carbonation. Taste is moderate in sweetness and with medium bitterness. Finish is average with some bitterness.

Klasyk wśród pilsnerów, więc trzeba było spróbować. Na początek zaskoczenie, bo aromat dość słaby, mało wyczuwalny. Ale już wygląd super, bardzo obfita piana, długo się utrzymuje, i idealny kolor. W smaku dość mocno goryczkowe, spore wysycenie, może ciut rozwodnione. Wyjątkowo pijalne i orzeźwiające. Goryczka w posmaku niezbyt zalegająca, plus trochę słodowości na końcu. Całkiem fajny, klasyczny pilsner. Jeśli ktoś lubi gatunek, to na pewno uzna go za bardzo dobry. Jeśli nie, to na pewno za solidny, tak jak ja.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2017 Tap at U Jagušky, Prague. Strange smell of wheat, old paper and cigarettes. Pleasant palate. Quite good pilsner taste, with hints of walnuts, buttered baguettes, balanced between bitter and sweet.

Not being a big lager guy, I was expecting to be underwhelmed. I wasn't. Great pilsner aroma of grain, some grass and as mentioned below, green beans. Taste is a better version of so many macro imitators. Grain, hay, honey, pepper, nice bitterness, slightly metallic at the end.

Bottle pour into shaker pint glass from Andover Liquors. Appearance is clear gold with beautiful sparkle, 1/2-finger width fizzy white head with fair retention and trace lacing. Aroma is crackery, vaguely metallic pilsner malts, saaz hops. Taste is as aroma with metallic flavor overriding the cracker aspect, late bitter. Palate is light bodied with slick, thin texture, soft carbonation and dry finish as taste. Overall, the pilsner standard. 'nuff said.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2017 Pours golden with thin white head . Sharp refreshing taste. Excellent pilsner style beer.

bilcho1 (121) - Ruse, BULGARIA - NOV 24, 2017
500ml can from the shop, drunk at home. Pours clear with a thick but short-lived frothy head, medium lacing but no bead. Aroma of bread, cereal and slightly floral hops. Creamy at first in the mouth with some fruit and cereal flavours. Medium bodied, with more than a touch of sweetness, and a strong bitter finish that becomes a slightly astringent aftertaste. Overall, less to my liking than Budweiser, but a very good pilsener nevertheless.

Gold colour with medium white head. Sweet bready malt, successful combination of spiciness and sweetness. The first of its kind that I've tried. Good one.

emincems (122) - TURKEY - NOV 21, 2017
It pours clear yellow body with visible carbonation. Head is medium sized and white. Retention is average, no lacing. Smells mildly of sweet malts, slight herbal hops and corn. Taste is well balanced between sweet malts and bittering hops. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated. Crisp, dry and hoppy finish. Very good lager.
