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.

Light gold beer with really nice malt and hop flavour. So much better than anything Lion Nathan or CUB could ever produce. These brewers give Australian beer such a bad name so I have to seek out wonderous beer such as this. A pity really, but the reality of beer making in general in Australia.

Bottle from Morrisons. I'm no great expert with the Pilsner style. I really enjoyed this beer. Lovely hoppy aroma sweet Pilsner malt and appropriate bitterness. Gave the impression of a well balanced lager and I haven't enjoy that one so much since sitting in the very hot sun.

Idealnie klarowne, złociste, ładna pianka, musuje. Aromat słodowo-chmielowy, lekko ziołowo/żywiczny i klasyczna off-nuta zielonej butelki, siarka z zapałek i może troche dms'u. W smaku mocno chmielowo-goryczkowy (goryczka średnia do lekkiej), lekka podbudowa słodowa, nie ma dość diacetylu co można różnie interpretować, kapka żelaza. Ogólnie w smaku lepsze niż w aromacie. Fest pijalne i fajnie nagazowane, nie za mocno.

On bottle. Pours golden with thick head, which dissapears quickly. Notes of fruits and citra - easy drinkable. Light hops - reminds of a Tuborg, with more co2.

Great Beer, flavours hold up with food. Classic Pislner. Deliciouse straight out the tank!

On tap U kocura. So this is the original pilsner. It's a good beer indeed, and maybe it's good it didn't change, but honestly there are better followers out there.

Zapach: słody, lekka żywica. Smak: słodowy, goryczka raczej niska, całkiem pijalne.

very light flavor, with obvious hops I was expecting the hops, but I was expecting more flavor from this "King" of the Czech beers. Suddenly, I am aware of why Kings lose their crowns..........

Nice bottle but you can make more with the labels, good. Clear golden beer with very long fine white head - very good, smell is grass, taste is typical Pils, bitter but not too much, I think they take soft water, very good, sorry for my rating but I‘m not a fan of Pils (I have 0.5l bottle with best-before 02.05.18 and batch L2217 09:02)

fernockibeer (214) - Wroclaw, POLAND - OCT 28, 2017
Puszka. Wygląd - jasno złoty kolor, klarowne, z średnią pianą, ładnie zdobiącą szkło. Aromat - ładna chlebowa słodowość, jest trochę chmielowych aromatów, trochę kukurydzy i jogurtu, diacetyl. Jest ok. Smak - raczej słodkie, dużo słodowości i trochę kukurydzy, żatecki fajnie wyczuwalny, dalej w tle trochę jogurtu, goryczka niska, zaznaczona, całkiem przyjemna, dalej trochę diacetylu, nasycenie średnie, ciało dość lekkie.
