UPDATED: SEP 17, 2003 Overall, this is a very impressive Pilser. I used to think Urquell was the benchmark among this class, but I was pleasantly surprised to find this one.

I am not a fan of pilsner beers, but a pint of Budvar is a welcome break from the English town centre lagers. Not amazing, but well worth seeking out either in the UK or in teh Czech republic - a touch dry but a bit of character and taste that is so lacking in UK lagers.

Golden pilsner color with a thick white foam on top. A nice flavor with a light bitterness. Excellent on tap.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2003 Would be typcial for the style if not so well done. Full, flavorful, and more gently hopped than most Czech Pilsners. Damn good.

Beautiful pale color. Lively carbonated. Great balance between hops and malt. Hops not overstated which seems to be the trend of late. Like a very premium Heineken. The only thing I don't like about it is the price.

Bottle. Light golden color with small head. Hops and mild skunk aroma, yet still pleasant. Medium body, decent hops, sweeter than I expected, decent malts. Good for summer. Glad I picked up a six-pack. This is right up there with that other Budweiser (hah). Seriously a very good pilsener.

Nice overall lager. Medium body, slightly sweet, strong malty aftertaste. Very quaffable. This buds for you.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2004 Bottled. An excellent golden straw colour. One of the best pilseners available widely, something that is delicious on a summers afternoon. Nice Saaz hop aroma, and decent bitterness.

Kinz (3292) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2003
Bready hoppy nose, pretty golden lager color, decent white head that slowly faded. Very good on the palate, smooth, no carbonation bite. The flavor is surprisingly malty with a nice grassy hop bitterness to offset the hops. Delightful. Better on draught, but its been too long (3 years) to rate that tasting.
