Heavily hopped nose and very skunky. Yellow bodied. Typical pils characteristics- hops with a slight lemon flavor. I had this beer several years ago, while living in Germany. It seemed to taste better then. (Maybe it does not travel well).

Supeior to the american namesake, but their is no suprises to the beer drinkers of the world, a straight-forward pilsner. Must try at least, enjoy it in the summer

I have always wanted to try the "real" Bud, having despised the American version ever since my first sip. What I found is a very drinkable beer. Sort of a weaker flavored Pilsner Urquell. As I’m more of a malt man than a fan of lagers I would run out to buy a case, but I also wouldn’t be unhappy to see it on the menu.

Very nice Pils. Puts the budweiser beer of the USA to complete shame. In my opinion, much better than Pils Urquelles. I had this on tap in Heidelberg Germany last week. Nice creamy head. Golden Pils. Very refreshing.

Rocky white head, moslty lasting. Good lace. Clear yellow body. Hoppy and yeasty (soap) aroma. Moderately bitter and a bit watery initial flavour and lightly bitter (averagely bitter finish). Light body.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 This one pours a sparkling gold with a very small, quickly deminishing head. The nose is sweet and pretty much standard for the type. Taste is lightly acidic, moderately sweet with hints of bananas, and a bit dry in the end. The bitterness is upfront and not in the end so much. It’s very balanced overall. The palate is actually diverse and subtle once the initial sweetness clears. A very good beer in its style.

Clear golden coloured body with a medium sized white head. Not much head retention and very little lacing. Doughy characters in the aroma as well as some dried fruit and some yeast. Light body in the taste, some sweetness and then some metallic bitterness, other tastes there were, cheese, cardboard and some hop oil. Average finish with a dry texture.

Beautiful golden beer supporting a creamy white head. Nice nose of clean hops and malt. Smooth slightly sweet with a nice bitter finish. I haven’t had as many samples of this as i have had of Pils Urquell, but this probably should get sampled multiple times as well.
