Nice hop aroma and pours a very clear golden color, nice white head, the flavor was crsip, clean, balaned and very smooth, nice Saaz bitterness. Move over Urquell there’s a new kid in town!
Stands shoulder to shoulder with Pilsner Urquell. AB should take notes on how to brew a truly outstanding tasting beer! Czechvar IS the true "King of Beers"

Green bottle, BBD 180804: I was expecting this to be skunked, but it was quite fine, slightly aromaic hopping with a little doughiness; clean, balanced sweetness with a metallic tinge and nice, quick bitterness; very smooth; better than expected.

Just one step behind Pilsner Urquell, but it is still one of my favorite beer. Light golden colour, tiny carbonated.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice golden body with a diminishing bubbly head. Fresh hoppy nose with some floral and herbal notes. Mouthfeel is fairly carbonated and taste is hoppy with some discreet metallic hints. Decent bitter final. The real Budweiser is a very good pils but remains a step under the Pilsner Urquell.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an apple juice like colour with a quickly disappearing white head. Nice straw aroma. This made a great refrsher after rugby practice. Great mouthfeel with good amount of carbonation nice hop bite on the end from the hops. A great thirst quencher.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma reminded me of marijuana or maybe a skunk. There was a lot of active, tiny carbonation. The body was light-colored with a thin white head. The flavor comes on good and strong. The only drawback is a funky aftertaste.

this is pretty much the definition of a german pilsnener. smells a little skunky, but quiet notes of hops and bread. tastes just like a bohemian pilsener ought to: simple malt profile with some european hops, and a clean crisp finish. very unnoticeable alcohol. very refreshing.
