A very nice pilsener, perhaps a bit sweeter than its "equals" Urquell and Staropramen. The ONLY Budweiser!

A great beer. Nice golden colour with nice size head. Bready nose with a touch of hops. Nice malty taste with a light sweetness. Very easy drinking.

Initial aroma once poured was slightly musty, like a Becks, but that quickly disappeared and it bacame quite fresh in aroma. Appearance is golden in color with a nice long lasting head. Very smooth and fresh in taste, a classic lager. I can tste why AB would try to stop the name of this import from its original name.

Bottled. Golden coloured, average head. Bready nose with a light touch of oily hops. Light bodied and extremely drinkable, yet firm. Balanced bitterness.

Take this Anheuser-Busch. Thats how you brew a decent Lager-style beer. Golden in color pours in with a nice white head. Malty in aroma with a nice dry finish! Go for it!

Blind side by side tasting (of Czechvar) with PU showed nearly identical color, head and carbonation. The Budvar had a less desirable aroma, slightly musty. The real difference is that budvar had a consistent flavor and mouthfeel from start to finish. Clean, crisp, well balanced. Almost too much so as both of us chose PU as the favorite due to it's more distinctive malt sweetness and dry, hoppy finish. The Budvar was still very nice and deserving of it's reputation as a classic Czech pils.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2003 A very good Czech pilsener. Not the best one, but it is very easy to find in stores. Golden colour with a good head. Malty sweetness in the taste with a light hoppy aftertaste. Really drinkable and pleasant.

Excellent pilsener. Much better than the /other/ Budweiser!
