I just returned from Prague and have newfound respect for this beer. I recall long ago in my youth, I was told Pilsner Urquell is the standard for the style. However, after trying it in bottles several times in the US, I was never impressed. However, fresh draft Pilsner Urquell in the Czech Republic changed my opinion of this beer. Much more pronounced (although still subtle) hop bitterness, fresh noble hop fragrance, and an overall feeling of understanding of why this defined the style. Tasting it this way, I can honestly say I would drink this beer very, very often if I could get it as fresh back home.

One of my favourite pilseners.
Pours a clean, golden color, very decent carbonation. It is topped with a generous white foamy head, that slowly settles down to only a lacing around the egde.
The nose easily picks up pleasant malty and grainy aroma, a bit stronger than with some others.
There is a tiny initial sweetness, followed by a nicely balanced body, concluding with decently bitter finish, the bitterness staying for some time.
Very refreshing, easily drinkable and enjoyable. Exactly what pilsener must taste like.
