#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

This is beer/lager.Ita a travesty that the worst beer in the world stole their name.

Bottle 330ml. Nice malt-driven lager, with good hop back-up. Aromas of caramel, honey, butter, and hints of grass. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a thin head.

First, I must say that the high rating for this might be effected by the fact that I had been drinking regular ole Czech Pils for a few days and this was a great change of pace- assertive on the tongue and in the head. Darker yellow then the others and a more prominent nose. The 7.2% was nicely warming on a chilly Czech night.

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.

quite good for a strong lager just a little alchohol in the palate but overall a good beer. (the bottle shown is not correct)

Very clean and alcoholic, lagered for 200 days! Unusually strong in comparison with other Czech beers.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2007 Bottle. Complex aroma - lemon, hay, sour malt. Dark yellow without much head. Suprising light flavor for the alcohol content - sweetness upfront, slight citrus flavor with a moderate hops finish - the finish is also when I really noticed the higher alcohol content.

Bottle. Amazingly bought from my local Co-Op. Very bronze with a welcoming malty aroma. Matiness dominates with plenty of body. This is ordinary Bud with an attitude. Interesting.
