15 years ago, the pilsener urquel was the only one fore me from czech beer, but now with 4 other czech pilsener budweiser budvar is one of the best.

Pours a yellow color with a decent size that goes away quickly. Sweet malt in the aroma but really not much going on. Flavor is lightly malty with just a hint of hops. Watery finish. Doesn’t really do much for me.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Balanced a little to the bitter side, aroma of malt with a hint of Saaz. I would drink this as a lawnmower beer if I could afford to.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2006 Golden colour, big bubbly head that goes off rather fast. Pretty nice pilsner smell, the taste is also good - nice bitterness, hops flavour, maybe slightly too much carbonation. Good pils anyway

A Mes rate:
It has been said many times before but I will say it again. This is really not my thing but as pils go this is certainly one of the better ones. So glad they managed to keep the name after the legal shananigans with those we shall not mention.

The Rate Beer descriptor for the beer style sums up the Budvar very succintly (funny that!). Great hop / malt balance and whilst not a hop head’s delight finishes tight and clean. I can imagine these beers need to be drunk very fresh.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
An excellent czech lager. Blond and clear colour, medium body, thin feel, average carbonation, bitter, abrupt finish. Fairly bitter taste.
A beer I like driking along spaghetti with carbonara sauce.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2005 The real Bud. This Bud is actually good unlike the beer that stole its name. Smooth, crisp and hoppy lager that is typical of the Czech Republic.
