Nice golden yellow in color. Sweet malt nicely balanced with pepper hops and spiciness. Nice example.

Je ne peux m’empęcher de prendre une bouteille de bičre lorsque j’achčte du vin ŕ la SAQ. Cette fois-ci c’est une charmante tchčque, blonde comme le soleil et son chapeau de mousse, qui se résorbe toutefois rapidement en un mince voile. Au nez c’est le fameux malt, propre au style, avec quelques parfums herbacés, du miel et un bémol métallique. Une politesse veloutée sur la langue, avec des herbes enrobées de miel, se terminant en une douce amertume. Elle est efficace et plaisante. (M.A. 05 décembre 14) (1131-290614)

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener. The appearance had a clear golden yellow color with a one finger white foamy head. There was some light somewhat clingy lacing after the head dissipated. The smell had some cooked corn-like/slightly graininess to it. The taste was mostly sweet with a slight toastiness to it. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body. Overall, I’m trying to figure out the difference between this and Budweiser as I’d probably have to do a blind tasting to try to figure them out.

33cl bottle at home. Clear golden with a medium white head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Medium bitterness with some sweet tones. Malts, hops, grass and straw. A refreshing pilsner.

My bottle (11.2oz, from Cheese Traders, So. Burlington) does not say the word "Budweiser" anywhere on the label. I dont think I could distinguish between a Grolsch & this beer in a blind taste test.... I like Grolsch a lot and think both of them surpass the lame standards of the general pale-lager-limited masses here in USA. Pilseners, certain pale ales, and wheat/wit beers are my summertime faves for sure.

Standout beer! One of my all time favourites. Golden colour, nice frothy head. Long finish with pleasant aftertaste.

One of the better bottled beers of this sort. Nothing fancy but there’s no unnecessary sweetness or sickly aftertaste. Just a crisp, refreshing, bitter pilsner that goes down very nicely.

Cerveja amarga como uma boa lager deve ser. Achei o preço excessivo, mas boa pra tomar de vez em quando
