It is a great beer to be sure. Best in the world...nope! There are many
light/svetle ales out there particulary i.p.a that scupper this one. Try
meantime timothy taylor etc. Trouble is czech's are terribly nationalistic and
don't know the world of beers out there. Urquell is best from a pub,,its still
skunky as the bottle but has a better head. Try cask conditioned ales instead

Come to Prague, sit down in Celnice and drink this beer from the tankand then
tell me if it's not one of the best you ever had. This is theflavor that created
the legend. Truly a fantastic tasty beer.On the other hand, I've also drank it
in California from a bottle andthe long ride from CR killed the flavor. What you
get in the gocerystore doesn't compare to the fresh stuff.

Pilsner Urquell is the only beer I have no heart-burn neither after 6bottles nor

Pilsner Urquell, as Staropramen, as Gambrinus, is another example ofwonderful
Czech beer. The original taste and style from Plzn.

EXCELLENT! The name "Pils" has origin from town Plzeò (Pilsen) hometown
ofPilsner Urquell.

Jirka () on 1998-06-12 09:55:00 wrote:
Again,this is the father of the beer. It has something that no other beercan
have - full and rich, bitter taste that refreshes you at the timeit reaches your
lips. Excellent for digestion, I recommend to drink toevery good meel you might
have. Thick, creamy foam that sits on thetop of the glass like a whipped cream
which gives it its uniqueaesthetics. You see it and immediatelly you feel the
water in yourmounth that tells you - go and grab it. One of the best which you
canget is at the main square place in Plzen. Enjoy it.

Although this is a fine beer and Pilsnis the origin of pilsner type beers,i

Like many of the comments before mine, I agree that Pilsner Urquell is the
pilsner to set standards by. The Sazz hops used create a crisp distinct flavor
that in unmatched. (exception= Bitburger, from Germany, this beer is equal to
Urquell in quality and taste. Both beers are outstanding andshould really be
tasted if you have not had the chance!

THE beer! Best in the entire world...It's subtle taste that comes from the use
of soft water and Czech hop.Not too heavy and not too thin and sexless like
Budweiser or PilsnerBudvar. Nice, sweet bouqet but still not too sweet in the
taste. Theperfect PH along with slight traces of bitterness caused by the
hopmakes this beer harmonic and uplifting to drink.- What beer is allabout.
