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.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2010 Slight malt taste and smooth finish. Better than the other ’Budweiser’ by a longshot, but still pretty bland overall. On tap at U Medviku in Prague: Smooth body of light malts with a floral note and presence of bavarian hops. Smooth finish.

Really nice hops aroma when you open the bottle. Goes down hill from there. Something sour about the malt in the finish that doesn’t suit me. As far as Czech beers goes, this one ranks 3rd after Urquell and Staropramen but it might rank 4th or 5th if I could sample more Czech beers in this category. <P>Tried it once more, bought a 6 from a different shipment. Less noticable hops but malt does not seem off this time. Not sure what this says about their quality control or cargo handling in between.

This shit smelled just like the american bud...pure crap...the taste salvaged it though...sweet barley taste, very crisp. Definitely a summer chugger.

Pretty solid. Decent saaz hop aroma. Malt is forward at the beginning then hop bitterness asserts itself., with a decent hop finish. Quite solid czech pilsener and went quite well with food.

There was nothing in this that indicated the bottle wasn’t fresh. Too bad, it would have been a good excuse for being a crummy beer experience for me. Unique-ish but not to say memorable flavor--couldn’t place it exactly, there may be something in the ’canned stewed tomatoes’ suggestion. Fortunately, after a while, my meal came and I was able to drown out the beer with Thai green curry. Not a bad beer with spicy food.

The original and (I wish) only Budweiser! Pretty good lager / pilsner.
