Very nice and tastefull beer when you think about it is a mass produced beer. Compared with other pilsners from e.g. Carlsberg this Urquell is much better

Tick head, a lot of carbonation, kinda watery but and a little bit too hoppy. I had head that this beer was kinda good for the style, but I took one of these and I didn’t really enjoy it, so I took another one to give it another chance, wasn’t really better.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2005 Nice sweet/ hay aroma. Beautiful golden color with constant carbonation. Mouthfeel was much smoother than expected. Kept waiting for a bad or metallic aftertaste like other bad lagers I’ve had, but this finished nicely. Haven’t had a lot of experience with good pilsners. Very pleasent to drink though.

500ml can. Nice golden colour. very little head or lacing but I really enjoyed the taste. Would go out of my way to find this beer again.

It has that pilsner bite and the lovely gold color, certainly defines the style but I don’t usually choose it. I drank this a lot in Germany where it tasted somehow better than it does here.

Pretty good Pilsner, although I think it can’t hold a candle to Jever...my favorite.

Bottle. Well, it seems to me that many of the pilsner and pale lagers I’ve tried so far have very similar flavors. Variations on the same thing. That being said, this is probably the best of the limited few I’ve tried. Nice golden straw color, with big white head. Lightly citrusy and malty aroma. Flavor was also very malty, but pretty tasty and light. Body is just north of watery, but in this case that isn’t a bad thing. Refreshing beer. If this was cheap, it would be a pretty tempting thirst quencher. Still pretty tasty for what it is, though I’ll take my dark beers any day.

This was a nice looking beer. Then I sampled it. Incredibly bitter! Was ready for the glass to be empty. Just goes to prove you can’t judge a book by its cover. Disappointing.

Pours golden with mild whitish head. Nose has underlying skunkyness. May have been an old bottle. Flavor is light malt and strawlike. Finishes with slight and i mean slight hop bitterness. I would rather have a few of these than a BUD anyday.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2006 For years, I’ve heard that this is the world’s best pilsener but the one I’m drinking now isn’t. It’s a little skunky. I know that it is not the beers fault but if we get them that way, C’est la vie! After first taste the hops seem to overwhelm the malt till near the end when it sems to even out. Excellent malt flavor throughout with a palate that seems to say, "Yeah, I’m a light beer, but not a pansy! Rerate on 7/24/06 This beer is much improved when gotten somewhat fresh. The combo of noble hops and toasted malt is heaven to the nose. The combo is evident in the taste also as this is no beer to be hurried. Take your time and "Savor the flavor" . Urquell is no lightweight!
