BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Plzeňský Prazdroj
Czech Republic
prazdrojvisit.cz

Style: Bohemian Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
While most lagers give away most of their taste profile in the front of the mouth, Pilsner Urquell only hints at its flavour there. Instead, it develops in the middle, followed by a refreshing, clean finish and balanced aftertaste, practically inviting you to have another.

Crisp, tasty, refreshing, cool cans, great price. I grab this whenever I see the 4 pack of old school cans reasonably fresh. For about 7 bucks it's a steal for a really solid pilsner. yb

A: Very crisp gold color with nice foamy head and good lacing.
N: Grains, honey, and mild hops.
T: Crisp and refreshing with a nice grain feel, soft honey, and a very dry finish.
M: Light
O: A nice pilsner, flavors are good but I found it to be a little too dry for my liking. Overall not bad but could be better.

This is the do all end all best beer of my life. I must have drank this is my past life. 400 years of history and experience in this one brewery. They invented the Pilsner for gods sake! And you can tell! Btw Budweiser, Miller, coors, Heineken, ect. are all Pilsner wannabes and they have still taken over the world. This is a beer that god himself would be proud to drink daily. Love you guys at the brewery and all the souls who made it happen. Purpleeurkle out!

The key is to drink it cold 40-42° in a Pilsner glass. This is my favorite Pilsner style.

Golden color, darker than most pilsners with carbonation bubbles from the bottom.

Very fruity and malty aroma, which transitions well to the taste.

Light bitterness, smooth finish for the style. Not dry or crisp.

Classic!

Will buy again.

Had this lots but never wrote a review...been drinking loads of cheap Polish pilsners recently...Czech ones usually have less maltiness and are lighter, more natural and crisp, with far more interesting hops.

Head is amazingly soft and smooth, looks great in the glass.

Quite a sweet honey aroma, inviting.

Probably a bit more malty and less flowery than Budvar, I'd say I just prefer that over this. But they are fairly similar.

My only critisism is there is a slight dry flatness in the taste of the bottle, this is probably different when draft.

Not too expensive either, great overall, probably one of my top 5 pilsners in the world

Pours a slightly foggy yellow-orange with a finger of white foam on top. Decent retention and lacing. Aroma is yeast spice, rye, and toast, biscuit, and pilsner malts. Flavor profile is toast, biscuit, and pilsner malts with a spicy yeasty finish. Mouth feel is medium-thin, crisp, and refreshing. Overall, a good pilsner that sips flavorfully with a nice twist at the end.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz bottle.
