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.

12 oz bottle. A very enjoyable pilsner that finished so well. Clear golden, foamy white head. I found this to have a rather weak aroma. Grassy, lightly sweet malts. With a medium body, fizzy, foamy carbonation and a crisp finish.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2017 Z kega. Świetna mokra piana, w smaku delikatna słodycz mieszająca się z delikatną goryczką.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2017 Butelka. W aromacie rzeczywiscie jest chmiel, ale w trzeciej kolejnosci, schowany za skunksem i mokrym, stechlym ziarnem. Goryczka nawet srednia, ale raczej nieprzyjemna. Finisz wytrawny, calosc sprawia wrazenie nie do konca wlasciwie skomponowanej. Ble.

Bottle. Pours nice golden with small white head. This is the classical good pilsner. Can drink it anytime and anywhere.

330 mL bottle. Clear deep golden. Smells of sweet malt, a little cardboard. Note sure about this. Tastes much better, though. Spicy and grassy throughout. Still has a sligtly floral character and a sweet malty flavor, but mostly masked by the hops. Light and drinkable. I was looking for a traditional Czech Pilsner for comparison. This was the best I could come up with.

W zapachu lekki słód, zero chmielu. Piana typowo pilsnerowska, średniopęcherzykowa lecz bogata, oblepia szkło. W smaku słód, chmiel bardzo delikatny, bardziej przypomina premium lagera niż pilsa. Lekka gorycz na podniebieniu.

500 ml bottle. Transparent golden colour liquid with a thin porous head that dissipates in a minute. The beer has a soft carbonation. The aroma firstly has prominent noble hops / grassy notes, but after the head had disappeared I could trace some diacytel and grain in the glass. The taste is dominating hop medium bitterness that attacks the tongue from the first seconds, later lasts pretty long, unleashing grassy and herbal, dry aftertaste. The malt base is buttery with distinguishable diacytel presence. Oily texture and medium body fit the whole impression of this beer. I personally like drier and crispier pilseners.

kaserov (756) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 17, 2017
Color dorado, translúcido, con capa de esuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (no mucha retención). Carbonatación suave. Textura acuosa. Cereal, pan y lúpulo en nariz y boca, también toques de hierba húmeda. Seca de entrada. Amargor final suave. Postgusto seco decente.
