2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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)
