Golden colour with large white head that fades to a very thin ring of lacing around the edge of the glass. Crisp aroma with floral notes, light malt and Saaz hops. Light caramel flavour, with a long floral hop finish. Very refreshing. A shame that Bud doesn't taste like its namesake.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2007 June, 2002 This has a hint of butter that I enjoyed, but otherwise is way too laid back for me. [2.4]
Aug, 2004 Bottle. Head to Head with Bud. Pale yellow appearance. Pale malt aroma - very light. Just beat Bud on both counts, but only by a fraction. Honey in nose, honey in flavour. Bud initially more flavoursome, but the Bud vanishes quickly and turns watery. There’s not a lot between the two when both are cold, but the Budvar just pips the Bud in all areas. [2.0]

I really enjoy this Pilsener. Straightforward tasting with decent carbonation. Taste is pleasant, yeasty, strong hops. Hints of fresh baked bread. Very close to a Pilsener Urquell.

Crockett (1031) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2004
Pours a deep gold, minimal off white head. Has a "soda pop" crackling carbonation. Slight chemical/medicinal bitterness going along with the hops. Herbacious and grassy. Note of caramel and some spice round it out. It really didn't do it for me.

dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2004
Nice lager, with nice malted taste, which prolongs very well with the light hopps in the flavour. Well balanced, but a little bit to sweet for my personal taste

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2004
First and foremost, if I was comparing this to just the US version of Bud, it'd get 5's across the board. Pours a light golden color with a decent head, no lacing, but lots of carbonation. Smells nice and malty. Tastes malty, yeasty, and has just a touch of hops. Quite good. Mouthfeel is very full and creamy. Drinkability is very nice as well. What a great lager; I'll definately be going for this one again.

IDogg (72) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Cyrstal clear and pale as anything you can think of. Little head and lots of bubble action. Aroma is not strong at all. Inital taste is crisp and ends with a smooth aftertaste. The malty taste is the dominate taste. A solid average tasting beer, but nothing special.

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - FEB 21, 2004
One of the finest examples of this style. Great summer session beer, a true quencher. Good with food. Not my favorite style by a long shot. Well balanced, with a nice noble crisp hop finish.

Timmy (15) - San Pedro, California, USA - FEB 19, 2004
This Czech pilsner pours a bright yellowish amber with a small white head. The aroma is somewhat spicy and hoppy, with a bubbly grain taste. Worth having again!

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2004
Light amber orange, white head. Aroma is of floral Saaz hops. Bready flavour with some yeastyness behind the light oily hops. Light, balanced. Not a bad beer. Bottle.
