- Pilsner Urquell was first brewed in the city of Pilsen, Czech Republic, in 1842. As the original golden lager, its brilliant clarity, 24 karat golden color, spicy, bright Saaz hop aromatics and buttered fresh baguette malt character made it an instant success in a world that was accustomed only to dark, heavy, cloudy beers. Even the name Pilsner Urquell, which literally means "pilsner from the original source," acclaims its role in creating the most influential style of beer on Earth today. (from Pilsner Urquell)
