3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It seems to be available only at the Chalet Party Shop chain in Elkhart County and its definitely going out of your way to get a sixer of it.
I had been curious about this beer for quite a while and I was happy when I found it locally. Overall it is vastly superior to that other Budweiser. Just a clean refreshing brew without a bitter after taste.

Bottle. Lovely gold colour. Aroma of Saaz hop and fox (?). Good oily hop taste with long finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear medium gold with a huge white head that vanished quickly but left some pretty lacing. Nose: grassy hops, fresh-baked bread, lemon and pepper. Taste: fresh-baked bread, cheddar cheese, ripe peaches and a touch of grassy hops. The aftertaste is slightly minty and mildly stringent. I’m not a lager fan, but this is probably one of the best I’ve had.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden and substantial in the glass with no head to speak of. Aromas of barley and wheat, some nuttiness. Flavors of wheat germ and barley, other grains, and some acidity. Finsih is round with some bitterness, but the mouthfeel is still light and lasting. A very good lager, but not my preference when it comes to having a beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Anyone who has been out drinking with me or read my reviews knows I am no fan of pilseners and lagers. But I dont mind giving credit where it is due. This may be the only pilsener I ever liked. Nice clear golden beer with a small white head and some lacing. Pleasant malty hoppy aroma. Flavor is what I wish all the other pilseners and lagers were. Malty, hoppy, with a mild bitterness. Good body, crisp with carbonation and easy drinking. Very Nice..

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thin metallic taste. "Best before" date still 5 months away so it isn’t an age issue nor is refrigeration. Sour, almost skunky smell. To me Pils Urquell is the much better offering in this style.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Incredibly beautiful full golden colour with a rather huge head. Fresh nose of barley. Lots of sweet malt and less bitternes than for instance Urquell. Velvety soft body. Having tried this on tap at the brewery assures me, that this simply must be the world’s best pilsener. No less.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The bottle poured a clear golden liquid with lively carbonation. There was a medium sized white smooth head that lasted a short while leaving little lacing on the glass. The aroma was the typical skunky pilsner aroma at first but then notes of earth and grass mingling with malt sweetness began to come through. The initial mouthfeel was silky smooth. The flavors of mild malt sweetness are subtle and light. What little hop bitterness there is comes out in the middle and end as it lingers on the back of the palate just as a reminder of the experience.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s an avarage brew in a nice big bottle. Aroma is nice, not too good. Nice fresh flavor with a little malty taste. Herbal too. Well, not too great but certainly very enjoyable.
