A type of pale lager. It takes its name from the city of Plzen, Bohemia, Czech Republic, where it was first produced in 1842. The world’s first-ever blond lager was the Pilsner Urquell, the inspiration for more than two-thirds of the beer produced in the world today (which are still called Pils, Pilsner and Pilsener). The original Pilsner Urquell beer is still produced today.

Other names: Pilsener, Pils
