On tap. Pours golden with a good size foamy white head. Plenty of hop bitterness with little malt to balance things out. Finishes crisp...but there is something about the aftertaste that I don’t dig. Alright. awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 6, 2006
On Tap. Golden yellow coloring with a thin, slightly uneven, lumpy head. Nice light aroma of freshly squeezed lemon and a touch of cut grass. Flavor is crisp with the just the right amount of herbal hoppy tones. Smack of slightly bitter dandelion leaf at the end. Clean finish. Overall, a well-balanced refreshingly hoppy pilsner. beerdrinker101 (56) - USA - MAR 6, 2006
The aroma was a bit on the skunky side. Poured dark yellow with a fizzy white head. Very refreshing taste. zombywoof (467) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAR 6, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2012 Strong spruce and hop aroma. Spicy Saaz hops and pine notes paired with the malt makes for a nice balance. I’ve drank many of these at the Bohemian Cafe in the Old Market in South Omaha. beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - MAR 4, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2010 Bottle. Poured to a golden yellow. Clear. White head that dissipated, but not too quickly. Crisp hoppy and grassy aroma. Has some bite to it, but not harsh to the palate. High carbonation. Nice spicy hop start with malt flavors as well. Bitter finish, but clean. Nice refreshing taste. I enjoyed this pilsner, and it is one of my favorites. Works well in a Black and Tan as well.

bottled. very very good light beer, with great fruity flavour. a little bit bitter taste, harmonic and great :-):-) YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - MAR 4, 2006
On tap: great refreshing pilsener, nice strong white head, some herbal notes, some spicy notes, sharp dry bitterness from the hops, medium body, one of the better pilseners out there. StueyD (1583) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2006
A golden brown beer with quite a strong white head. A discreet hoppy aroma with a wheaty finish. the taste is of dry hops and a slightly sweet finish of malt. stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - FEB 27, 2006
Reach deep in the shelf for this one. Light struck Urquell is awful. But get a good one, and you’re in pilsener heaven. A fantastic summer (or winter) session beer, and a benchmark of the style. Beautiful zesty hoppy bite and flavor, with a solid light to medium clean malt backbone. winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - FEB 26, 2006
I am not sure if my bottle was light-struck, but the hop aroma I had heard so much about was quite skunky. Medium-bodied and malty, almost too much too be refreshing. I did not enjoy this one at all.
