Pilsner Urquell 1

This BASICALLY is glorified Miller Lite. I had some of this once at a beer tasting. Being in a mood for a really good beer, and after trying several of them, I decided that Pilsner Urquell IS Miller Lite. It is made/owned by Miller/Coors and tasted to me like they bottled Miller Lite in a fancier bottle and charged double for it. I will need a side-by-side to 100% verify this one, but I am 100% certain that I would never have this beer again...as long as Miller still makes Miller Lite.

Not bad at all. Has kind of an Interesting taste to it. Has a decent hoppy flavor, but is still clean and light. I rarely order these, but I like them when I do drink it.

I am curious, I have been drinking Pilsner Urquell for 30 years, started the enjoyment in Germany. I just got a batch that tastes like it does not have any alcohol in it. Perhaps the yeast is missing. The number on the bottle is 7231113001. The taste is raw. My husband had two and mentioned there was no effect. He checked the official web site for the company and could not see an area, where the quality control feedback can be found. Has anyone else experienced this?

Pilsner Urquell was the first Pilsner ever made in the world and is still the best Pilsner ever made. One of those beers that has that intangible flavor that you won't find anywhere else. The perfect mix of slight bitterness, clean flavor and smooth palatable taste.

I tried this whole on a vacation to Prague. You can't go to the Czech Republic and not try a Pilsner. I am glad I only had a few sips. I thought it was really gross. It has a really strong after taste and I couldn't shake it for a while. If you like fruity drinks or light flavors this is not for you!

Pilsner Urquell is the prototypical pilsner. To be honest, I am not much of a pilsner person myself. I tend to prefer lagers and darker beers. Pilsners are generally smooth and light in consistency with a taste I can only describe as "beer-y." I would say Pilsner Urquell has a "crisp" taste.

The apprx. 22 oz. bottle I had was terrible. Though it may have been skunked. My one dog that eats anything would not touch the half-oz. I poured in his food dish.  Update 4-5-08:


Have to do a new review based on a fresh pint can I had recently. No skunk fumes in this one. A really fine, smooth Pilsner. A bit subtle for most "hop-heads" it is a very refreshing pour. Light, crisp, clean. Well recommended for hot weather when something light is called for.

I've drunk it and not complained about it. I don't know if that's the sort of endorsement that you would put on a label though.

I suspect though that this is Chalkey Studebaker's beer of choice since its named after his favourite TV Character from Family Matters.

This is simply the best Pilsner I've ever had, and that's saying a lot. Actually it's my favorite beer in the world. It is pricey, but on special occasions I'll always go out and get Pilsner Urquell.

This is a delightful beer that is brewed in the Czech Republic and is available in the U.S.  It has just the right amout of hops without being bitter.  It is not overbearing with its hops like the American beers Sweetwater 420 and Palmetto Pale Amber.  Pilsner Urquell is in my top 4 beers; rated.

Decent blond beer. . .goes down well, but nothing to shout about. . .one of those beers you can order to make yourself seem smarter than you really are, but just an average beer on this terrific list. A very drinkable three bordering on a four. . .

Its rare that I find a beer that I don't like, and I was excited to try Pilsner Urquell. I had heard it was great, yet I completely hated it. It made me feel sick to drink it. I've been able to drink it since when others have bought it and there were no other choices. However, if Pilsner Urquell is an option, it is likely that there are more beers available that I would much rather drink.

Ok, I'm probably a bit prejudiced since I had a bad experience with this beer. First of all, it really shouldn't come in a green bottle. Green bottles allow more sunlight in and the beer skunkifies faster. I think this is what happened to me as I decided to try it one day, and I drank one quarter of a bottle and threw the other five bottles away. And I am a guy who hates to waste beer. It's possible that the batch I received wasn't fresh, so I'll have to try this on tap later and update my review. But it'll be a while given my bad experience with this one.

A true pilsner beer but somewhat of an aquired taste - it is a very hoppy for some but overall good balanced flavor once you get used to this type of beer.

As an ale drinker I'd rate this the best of lagers Ive tasted. Dunno what but it's not as good as it was 5-10 years ago. Lost something in mass production. Still, very pleasant on a hot summer's day

It's gone from pretty good to ok now. They've lost the taste in going with the mass production for some reason. Definitely not as good as before. They must be cutting corners or something. I'd say it's just below Stella Artois.

Absolutely the best beer in the world. It goes down smooth, unlike 90% of the microbrews out there, but it's not watered-down like the mass-produced domestics. This is what beer is supposed to taste like.
