This is the way I remember lagers tasting in Europe. Much fuller aroma,much fuller and more complex taste,I prefer this to Urquell.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden color with a quickly disapearing head. Aroma is slightly malty, but very light and refreshing. Very light body that finishes clean. Very well balanced. Flavor is light malts, and light hops - touch of spice. This beer is good, but it's very subtle - nothing stands out from the rest. Easy to drink a lot of this.

Pours a clear golden body. Nose is slightly skunked, but has a decent malt and light hop character underlying it. The taste is malted also with a grassy, crisp tongue. A little bit of skunked bitterness makes it's way in too, and detracts from the overall taste. Very soft mouthfeel. Clean finish with also no aftertaste. Pretty good pilsener.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose is subtle, slight hop aroma followed by very mild maltiness like creme soda.
White head with good retention and lace, small bubbles and good structure. Color is a pale yellow like summer wheat or straw.
Tastes subtly like lemon or apple cider. Mild malt apparent on first taste and smooth easy-going hop character.
Just about everything a traditional Pils should have, but it's almost like a "light" pils. I've had better. Still, I love Budvar on a hot summer day!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2003 A fairly strong lager. Has lots of flavor and a light appearance. Has a decent sweet taste. About as good as a lager can get.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow with a thin, quickly disappearing head. Sweet corn nose. Better than the BMC beers, but not a lot. Cleaner palate and finish, but still almost a cloying corn sweetness. Good with a sandwich.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow, soapy foam head. Could be confused for Miller lite. Thats where the similarity ends. Crisp and smooth, some malts to begin. Ends on a nice dry hop note. The green bottle has gots to go, though. Points for freshness dating. Good for the style.

Ok have never tried the "other" Budweiser!
Comes in a nice tapered neck brown bottle..attaractive label and gold foil.
The appearance is good but pretty average for a lager..deep yellow beer..with attractive and fast carbonation strings//largush pure white head that goes down fast some lacing.
Smell however is above normal..some great hop aromas..and it smells fresh.
Taste is very nice not sweet really..some subdued malts than a nice crisp hop finish.
About average on the palate for a lager.
Pretty drinkable brew.
This is a nice Czech lager/pils..not the best I far prefered Starobrno and even Radegast.
