[bottle from sainsburys] pours light yellow with a light head which does not last. A stale cardboardish aroma ruins an otherwise pleasantly hopped nose, a little grassy. this stale taste comes through again in the palate, body is light and has a dry finish.

I Like this beer simply because it is the REAL budweis!It is also better the fresher it is like most light lagers/pilsners.Soft body with spicey Czech hops makes American Budwieser look like the pathetic beechwood aged shite that is.

A light aroma and a golden color. Has a nice white head. Not overly bitter and has a hint of spice in the flavor. A nice refreshing beer.

Drank in the Latern Pike Inn, Derbyshire.
Was wanting Budweiser, as it was a hot day and I needed my thirst quenching, and I was given this.
And to my suprise it was lovely, had honey, lemon and orange like notes and very light but alot of flavour for a lager.
Easily drinkable, and Its a pity I can’t seem to get more of it.

Golden yellow (slightly orange) with a very fizzy head that disappears very fast. Aroma is mostly hop and malt with notes of spices. Flavours are very well balanced, just the right amount of hop and malt with a fairly bitter, dry finish. Much better then the "other" Bud....

Smells okay for a pils. Not particulary good or bad, which for beers of this style means this is pretty good. Especially when you consider my bottle says I should have drank it by March of this year.

A very lively beer. Fresh aroma, crisp taste, hyperactive bubbles hopping all over the place. This beer is smooth but the finish is somewhat flat, as if made with stale water. Not as tasty as Pilsner Urquell-- still the king of pilsners. Not even close.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2008 I had to re-rate this beer. The first time I had it was here in the USA as Czechvar. I wasn’t impressed. Perhaps it was a little old. Well, when I was in Germany I had it as Budvar and it was fresh. Man what a difference. This and Urquell now rank as my favorite Pils. Great taste with a good bite, but without a bad or strong aftertaste. A pilsner fan must try, but try to get it fresth.

50 cl Bottle. Nice golden colour with a fine head. Good aroma of malt and some hops. Very good taste and fine balance between hops and malt, good finish, some bitterness to the end.
