Pilsner originally described beer from Pilsen (Plzen). Just as Cologne came to be associated with perfume, Pilsener meant beer. For Czechs it means beer from Plzen and nothing else. The term came into use when the brewery in Pilsen (Plzen) developed a beer in 1842 known as Plzensky Prazdroj (Pilsner Urquell). This is a pale golden-colored beer of 10 or 12 degree, with a characteristically well-hopped palate (Bohemian hops are used of course) and a slightly sweet after-taste. In 1290, King Wenceslas II granted 260 families in Pilsen the right to brew beer. A house in downtown Plzen belonging to one of these original families now houses a beer museum, the oldest in the world. It's also been a microbrewery since 1959. It's a little-known fact, however, that before about 1840 the beer brewed in Pilsen was some of the worst in the world.
