I don’t like its taste at all. I won’t waste my money in it again.

Probably my favorite pilsener. Sensational. Though the bottle and label look ordinary, inside is a handcrafted beauty of a beer. Strong saaz hops impart a terrific aroma.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2003 Hoppy, citric aroma and taste. Hopbitter finish. Excellent pilsener, lives up to its reputation. Rating 8 4 8 5 16 = 4.1. Re-rate: slight hoppy, malty aroma. Soft hoppy, malty flavor. Orange. Almost milky and creamy, must be a bit infected with diacetyl. Rounded and balanced. 7 4 7 3 14. As far as these ratings go, the quality can differ. This is a weakness of this classic pilsener. This rating is an average, with a point deducted for inconsistency.

Actually this shows why the Czech are known to be damn good brewers. Very good aroma, and has a very good drinkability. Nothing like to US version which lacks all the good stuff in the original.

This definitely tastes better that it looks, but it is still fairly average. Decent aroma, very slightly sweet, average bitterness.

Re-rate: very nice aroma, a blend betwwen hops and malt. Very nice saazy aroma. Sweetish start, balanced out by a bitter finish, kind of good, even though it is quite easy to drink, it maintains a good flavour and firm bitter flavour.

So Budweiser made a halfway decent beer. Well Adam Sandler occasionally makes a halfway decent movie too. That doesn’t make it a good movie, just a good Adam Sandler movie. Anyway, no one could argue that this is far better than a Bud, but so what, so are 99% of the other beers on the market. Standing by itself. this beer is average. Slightly darker than a standard Pils with an off-white thin head. Vaguely bitter. Mild malt finish. Really nothing spectacular.

Dusty and hoppy aroma. Golden with a nice white head. Bitter and hoppy flavor, nice medium long aftertaste.

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer, because I figured anything with the ’Bud’ word had to be piss water. This bottle had a caramel color with a huge, fairly long-lasting, off-white-colored head. (That ain’t no regular Bud!). Decent malt and hops, decent flavor. If I could get over the name, I’d probably drink another.
