BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Green 0.33 litre bottle, labelled ’Premium Select’ for the UK market: BBD 2 Oct 14, drank at home on 18 Jun 14. Good dark old gold colour with no head at all. Fairly sweet malty nose and taste, with the alcohol in evidence from the first sip. I was thirsty, so enjoyed it, but it is not a great lager, strong or otherwise. Just a bog standard strong lager that cost a lot more than the cheap equally poor options available all over the world.

Osprey87 (1363) - WALES - MAY 23, 2014
Keg at Draft House. As ’Bud B-Strong 7.5%’ on the clip and ’Budvar Premium’ on the beer list. Pale yellow, clear, lightly sparkling, big foamy white head, polkadot lacing. Aroma is not appetising - vegetal, socks, and even some vomit. Body is medium to light, slightly foamy, lowish carbonation. Taste - liquorice forward, malty lager, touch of alcohol. Once you become numb to the smell, it starts to grow on you.

Blond with a small head. Sightly-alcoholic and hay aroma. Medium body, high carbonation, slick texture. Sweet and bitter taste. Palate is dominated by hay, metallic hints, bitter herbs. Bitter aftertaste. B@H

Kita (973) - Koper, SLOVENIA - APR 21, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear deep golden color with medium frothy white head, fair lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of grassy hops, toasted malt, sugar and alcohol. Taste starts with sweet and rich malt, follows by grainy sourness with strong alcohol note, warming mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Acceptable...

HammerTroll (318) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 17, 2014
Clear golden color, small white head. Very very sweet. Way too sweet for my taste. Flat carbonation, thin to medium body. Reminds me of Bavaria 8,6%. Expected much more from Budweiser. (Pivkan 0,33l bottle)

HerrBierkoenig (192) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 30, 2014
From tap to 0,3l dimpled mug. Pours light hazy golden liquid, medium white head falls quickly. Aroma: malt, saaz hops. Taste: medium sweet, light bitter, light acid. Pilsner malts, sweet, bread. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, medium sweat aftertaste, oily texture. Overall: Nothing unexpected. Solid strong lager with good drinkability.

dnicolaescu (683) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAR 21, 2014
BOTTLE 50CL as "Premier Select". Look: clear golden-amber with a white frothy small head. Aroma: malty, sweet, a bit metallic. Taste: simple sweetness balanced by light hops bitterness, slightly phenolic, but not really alcoholic.

Pretty decent for the style.
