Good basic pilsner. Better than the stuff from St. Louis.

A run of the mill pils. Certainly better than America's "King of Beers"

I really don't have anything to add. I drank this in the bottle while I was already pretty drunk, so I don't remember the details, just the numbers.

presario (4596) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 10, 2003
Good dark yellow colour. Decent starting head. Medium bubbles. Leaves a fair lacing. Typical pilsener (Sasz?) smell. Overall not as sharp as Urquell nor as enjoyable as Topvar. A certain earthiness in the flavour and a better than average Pilsener palate.

Not too bad if you like Pilsners. Fairly clean and crisp, goes down smooth with a refreshing aftertaste.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2005 Jan 03: Certainly a decent, clean, well-crafted brew, but I don’t get the cult following other than to be able to say you’ve had the "real" Budweiser. Very typical, slightly above average Pils to my tastes, fairly malty at the front, dry and bitter at the end, grassy... nothing really stands out. 6/4/7/3/13 3.3

Aug 05: 330 ml bottle, BBD 0905...hey I got a fresh one! Big billowy fast-dissipating head at very clear gold body....beautiful fresh warm-bread aroma, light saaz hops, hints of thyme and aloe....body fairly light, crisp, kinda low-impact flavorwise, with subtle metallic bitterness to finish and heavily malty body, hops a bit indistinct...still quite good, and I would certainly kill to have it really draught-fresh in central Europe.

Very good pils lager. The best continental European lager I have come across. Very crisp and clean taste.
