330ml bottle from my local Co-Op of all places. Really quite impressed by their ability to source these random rarities. This doesn’t really bare much relation to normal Budvar. Obviously it has a higher ABV but it’s hidden well without much of the sickly sweetness I expected. Overall, an ok beer but would choose the original any day.

Everettm (80) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2013
Better than your average and hides the alcohol level surprisingly well for a light amber lager. On the darker side of amber with finger of head and lively carbonation. Aroma of sweet malt and pilsner as well as floral notes and spice. Solid malt character with classic pilsner hops coming through. Leads to a dry averagely bitter finish

Myslim si že Budvar by se měl držet toho v čem patři mezi špičku. Takové supersilné pivo neni uplně jeho parketa. Ale i tak se řadi k tomu lepšimu.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle. Golden blonde. Soft maltaroma with hints of grass and candied fruit. Malty sweetish, slightly alcoholic flavor with hints of grass. A strong lager of decent quality, yet nothing exciting.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2013
#43 Die Farbe ist dunkelgold. Der feine weiße Schaum ist leider zu schnell verflogen; dennoch bietet das Bud eine schöne Optik. Der Geruch ist sehr malzaromatisch und würzig. Im Antrunk voll und fest. Trotz des hohen Alk-Gehalts sehr liquide. Die Malzaromen kommen geradezu buttrig rüber; das ganze Bier wirkt sehr konzentriert und fantastisch ausgereift. Der Hopfen zieht im Abgang schön an und klingt lange nach. Ein tolles Starkbier der Extra-Klasse! Test vom 22.12.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 13,13,13,13,14,13 - 13,05
