The czech equivalent of Budweiser is definitely much better than the U.S. version, for me it would be a summer brew.

had to help up this ones ratings, the only reason i can think that is scores low is so that everyone doesnt rush out and buy this one out. it was only around here for october. stellar pisner that resonates between 5 or more flavors. what i mean by this is that, first the taste is sharp in your face - quickly disappears into undertones of another flavor - a bit later it goes back over the top with a new flavor --- back & forth for quite a while. truly a complex brew!

An unmistakeable Czech Pilsener. Strong bitterness but not unpleasant. For Pils-Lovers a must.

Braudog (5876) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2006 Big orange-yellow pour with gigantic white airy head. Very malty with a good body. Ultra biscuity, but with a nice solid saazy bite.

Bronstein (175) - Göttingen, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2002
Appearenc nice but it’s not really blonde. A mouthful of malty flavor, finish dry. Spicy malty aftertaste. Not as sweet as e.g. Gambrinus Premium.

Fine bronze gold with a medium rocky cream head. The aroma is honey and sweetish with some hopping as well/ The flavor is initially sweet and grainy and falls away fast. After some warming, malt plays a role too. Good for the style, but as my rating indicates--this isn’t my style.

Bitter, yeasty, clean, simple. Lots of sea monkeys. I’d rate this higher if I liked pilseners. I know that’s not very objective of me, but I’ll never buy this again.

Very nice lager. Simple and clean. Slightly sweet with a hint of hoppiness. Very easy to drink, and a nice change.

Clean light gold colour. Load of carbonation w/ big fluffy white head. Fresh, floral, sweat hoppy nose w/ light spicyness. Medium, slightly oily body. Smooth maltiness giving way to a rounded bitterness. Slight diacetyl apparent.
