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.

A clean-tasting, satisfying pilsener. Not a patch on Czech draught pilseners but a fine drink in its own right and a perfect session beer. Classic lager gold colour. Poured with a frothy 1cm white head that - to steal a phrase - was gone in 60 seconds, leaving a disappointingly flat looking brew. Fresh lemony hop aroma but a little one-dimensional. Thin-to-medium body with some creaminess. Some sweet malt and fruit at the front of the tongue and a mild dry finish. Bit of honey in the finish to balance the Saaz hops. A great pre-dinner appetiser. (Bottle)

Thanks to beerhandy for this. Pours pale gold with a big, frothy white head. Aroma of malt, some hops and slight thiols. Tastes better than it smells, with a solid malt and hop backbone and some finishing honey. Better than I expected. This kicks the ass of American BMC shit.

Bottle. Light amber in color. Nice white head lingers and then fades slowly. Little lacing left behind. Rather delicate aromas of grass, malt and spicey hops. A little musty also. I would really like to try this one fresh!

It really stinks that this, the true Budweiser cannot use its real name in this country because it is much better than American Budweiser. Light in color, but not in taste. One of the better pilseners out there.

Thatnks to IslandHaole for this guy. Shimmering golden pour, med/small white head, active carbonation. Aroma is slightly skunky, light hops. Light sweetness, light bitterness, med/light feel. Probably the best pils I’ve ever had.

This is a classic Czech Pilsner, delicate Saaz aroma, average head, a medium bitterness that is slightly less than most. Has a clean, soft, dry finish.
