UPDATED: NOV 5, 2005 A pilsner with more color, body, and flavor than most others. Nice malt and hop balance. This is a great food beer when you don’t want the beer to distract. Also nice for drinking when you want a fairly standard throwback lager but still want a quality beer. Good, classic Bohemian pils, if you can get it fresh.

The Beer of Kings. Much better than our crap Bud. Similar to Pilsner Urquell, maybe not quite as good. Drank this for the first time while vacationing in Austria.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2009 Beautiful head, they seem to know how to pour here in Czech Rep. Lovely aromatic, semi-sweet flavour. Can’t seem to trace much aftertaste. Nice mouthfeel. 3 3 7 3 16
Draught. Weak hoppy aroma. Clear golden colour. Stable white head. The flavour starts off quite malty. There is a good clean sweet hoppiness. The bitterness is not very high. Very drinkable. 6 3 7 3 17

Ah the REAL Budweiser, don’t know if that’s good or bad, but it’s definitely better than our version. Crisp, with a slight bitter hop twang and nice malt finish.

It took a 2 hour trip to find this "Real Budweiser" last weekend. In a green bottle, not brown and shipped all the way over here=skunked. A clear gold with a small white head, looks similar to the horrid "La Biere Du Demon" I just dumped. Yes it's is a bit skunked but the grassy hoppy scent still is discernable. Those same characteristics translate to the flavor as well with some pale malt flavors too. A very crisp dry finish. A nicely balanced beer but doesn't beat Pilsner Urquell in my book!

Easily one of the most drinkable beers imaginable. Light and crisp and fresh. I feel bad that we don't get to have it by its original name. Clearly bests the king of beers.

Drinking this in a bottle here in Canada doesn't seem like the proper way to rate this one. It definitely is a good example of drinking something fresh...years ago I had a friend from Cologne rush me out to the pub to get a fresh pint of what he called Budweiser. I was even more of a neophyte than I am now and was skeptical about his excitement about having a Bud. Then I learned the story. Anyway, the beer was quite tasty and refreshing and sadly don't have notes to rate <em>that</em> verion. So for this version: A decent pilsener. Drinkable but nothing to go out of your way for - unless you're near somewhere that serves it fresh.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2006 A decent pilsener - probably has such a good reputation because drinkers will always compare it to Budweiser, and there are very few beers that would look bad in that situation. Smooth, decent body and some flavour.

I don't get all the hype about this beer either, basically just another average pilsener, golden color, nice fluffly white head, crisp & smooth, drinkable

Personally I don't know what all the fuss is about this beer. I've drunk it in Ceske Budejovice quite a few times and it's nearly always sweetish with little hop or interest for me. Maybe it's just my personal taste, but I find it pretty boring. (draught in Panda bar, Ceske Budejovice)
