Easly the best Pilsner around bar none. I find that the bottledpilsner is often
stale but the canned is always good malty and hoppy. i still haven't been able
to find it on tap yet in canada. I woulddearly love to taste the draught
version. Any one who does not likethis beer does not like real beer.

In the mid 1980's, I lived in NY,NY. In the upper most reaches ofManhattan
Island was a massive beer and soda distributor that stockedpallet upon pallet of
fresh Pilsener Urquell. It came in 4 packs andhad real cork in the bottle caps.
This was the most delicious beer Iever had and unfortunately today's variety
does not taste anythingclose to the older cork capped variety. The taste of the
beer today isjust average and I don't buy it. I continue to try pilsener beers
andcompare them to that heavenly hopped 1980's variety and cannot findanything
to compare. May go out to Pilsen to try it and hopefully thatvariety will be the
beer I remembered and surely miss. Anyone outthere remember this incredible

P,Urquellis is an excellent beer.My question to you is as follow howit is
possible that a beer with such bad ingredients like Presidenet,and Corona sales
more than Pilsener Urquell in the U.S.Perhaps we don't know shit about good

Still, despite the German efficiency experts, one of the best Pilsnersout there.
BUT, the Poles and the Russians have some very fineexamples, too. If only they'd
left this beer to the Czechs, and usedbrown glass, my mind boggles at the
thought of what this beer wouldtaste like.

Absolute perfection! It is everything I wanted in a beer. I've triedmany, and
hated most. When I finally got my hands on this, poured intomy beer glass, and
tasted it, I knew it was "my beer". The best,simply the best. It's bitter in all
the right ways, and has a pleasantaftertaste. Wonderful!

Without a doubt my favoite beer. Most Americans will not appreciatethis

civilization." I know what he meant.

The finest beer obtainable in Canada. Perfect after a day of rippingup the ski
hill. Delicious and refreshing, with such a clean finish!Those who dislike the
skunkiness don't like hops and deserve their BudLight or whatever bog swill they
waste their lives with. The greenbottles are far classier than brown.

I am really angry that Pilsner Urquell bought and then quit producingPurkmistr
dark lager, the best tasting beer I have ever had theprivilege of drinking. I
hope Pilsner Urquell has good buisness senseto bring it back on the market, and
until they do I will boycottPilsner Urquell beer. I miss drinking Purkmistr.

To Gerry from Belgium,Of course you think it is skunk. It is not being compared
to Duvel orMaredsous, etc.You have to be open-minded enough to appreciate ALL
different stylesof beers. I guess you have to appreciate hops, because Urquell
isvery hoppy.

Excellent! If someone is opposed to the "skunky" aroma -all I have tosay is get

It's unfortunate that they bottle it in green bottles because every bottle I've
ever tasted has been "skunked". However, a glass I had on tap at a Canadian pub
was heavenly.
