Pilsner Urquell

Last beer of the night… don’t worry, this was over a 4 hour period, so I was fine when we were done… at least according to Intoximeters Incorporated and their Drink Wheel.  Actually a pretty darn cool site if you ever wanted to test out your limits.

So, Pilsner Urquell… another sprise that it has taken this long to get on the blog since this is one of my all time favorite beers.  The folks at Plzensky Prazdroj bring us this fine libation for year round enjoyment.  The Pilsner Urquell web site, is actually pretty damn cool and provides a fine amount of information on the history of the beer.  I also found out that the head is supposed to be precisely 35mm high… get out your ruler.

As far as flavor goes, Pilsner Urquell lives up to its reputation of being *the* benchmark for other pilsners the world over.  It has a wonderfully light yet full, strong flavor that sits just perfect in your mouth and on your tongue.  It is a as easy to drink as it is to look at and smell, showing off a beautiful golden color… like a field of mature wheat in the afternoon sun. 

There isn’t any other way around it… this is hall of fame material.

Just a side note… that is StRoss in the background looking all serious… if he was much of a beer drinker, he would like this beer… I promise.

    I’ve been a fan of Pilsner Urquell (PU) since the late 80’s. I was able to find it in a six pack store that specialized in imports, but it was years before it was distributed nationally. Frankly, they should spend a little more on advertising. It was extremely difficult to find then, but I first learned of PU in a beer rating book (not Michael Jackson’s). The writerbgave it five of five stars. For some reason a lot of beer fans today don’t seem to appreciate this lager and I was very glad that you did.

    This is one of the finest beers on the market.

      I agree… I have talked to a bunch of folks that don’t get this one… I think it is outstanding and one of the best of its genre. Thanks for your comment, Tim. Much appreciated!

    Just to add to this: I was born in Czech (yeah thats where they make this beer) and there are two facts you guys should know. One: Czech republic is the number one in comsuption of beer per citizen through the year (fighting with Ireland of course). Two: Pilsner Urquell is THE beer in Czech republic.
