UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 Pretty much better than the USA BudWeiser, but it is also too soft, and I will not consider it over a Coke if I am thirsty and I have both options. BUt it was quite cool for heat.

Well i’m not going to analyze this beer like it was someone’s gown at the oscars but I will say that it is one of my favorite easy drinking beers. Too refreshing on a warm day to hate on.

A good beer. It is sometimes dismissed by beer snobs as just another good light coloured lager. There are other good light coloured lagers? With actual flavour? In my limited experience, I haven’t really found any other lagers, pilsners, anyway, that taste like hops and malted barley in addition to actually being delicious. If there were more widely available pilsner with strong and pleasant flavour, I might be less generous, but for me, this beer occupies a very essential niche by itself. I am not very experienced with pilsners, but I don’t see how much potential they have to be better. Very good beer in a limited style.

Oh, if this were the working class afte-r a-hard-days-work beer in America rather than the rancid swill that bares it’s true name here! Not a "holy-crap" kind of beer, but nice. Actually kept a head, mild in flavor, nicely balanced.

The american import version of Budvar, the Czech original of Budweiser. The history is complex, but the flavor is not. Crisp slightly hopped slightly funked pilsner, medium straw-colored. Clean, crisp finish, slightly pleasant session-beer sour twang to aftertaste.

poured a golden color with little to no head. Aroma is all skunk.. Which is not all that bad.. Taste is a bit of malty sweetness with a skunky add. Nice medium bitter finish.. If US bud tasted like this I would probably buy it..

Every time I get this stuff, it’s always totally skunked due to the bottle non-coloring. When, OH WHEN, will those silly eastern europeans take the hint? Pretty awful from the bottle, but I’d like to try it on tap to see if it tastes better without the intense skunk stink and taste. And usually by the time it gets here and sits around, the taste starts to resemble urine.

Golden Pilsner forms a nice white head that fades to patches of foam .Slight Skunkiness,spicy hops and fresh ground grains.Nice mouthfeel no excess carbonation .Light Malt sweetness that is dryed up with spicy hop finish.
