Smells like the American rip-off but doesn't carry as much rice aromas as Bud. Not skunky like other Czech exports. Malty, slight hops, crisp and refreshing. If you can find it, give it a try when you just want to kick back with a mellow brew.

This one is a treat beer. The real Budweiser. The yanks stole the name and recipe, then watered it down. Czechs make good tennis players and good beer. A crisp golden brew in a classy bottle.

For the price, this stuff really sucked.
No reson to dissect it systematically, it just tasted cheap but cost what premium beers do.
Stupid foil around the neck was annoyoing too.

Close to Urquell. Yellow color, little head. Spec. hops in both aroma and flavor. Fine hoppy finish.

This beer was a big let down for me. It tastes like a cheap Pabst product. Sour after taste that reminds me of american corn and rice beers.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2003 A nice dark gold and thick white head start this one. In my opinion, THIS is how a pilsener SHOULD look. The aroma is fairly typical of the style, though a little heavier than normal and also quite nice. Flavor is also very nice. I'd put this one off for quite some time, not knowing if I'd like it, but I have to say that this is a top notch pilsener! I prefer this by leaps and bounds over the comparably rated Pilsner Urquell. All bow before the TRUE king of beers!

A very nice pilsener, perhaps a bit sweeter than its "equals" Urquell and Staropramen. The ONLY Budweiser!

A great beer. Nice golden colour with nice size head. Bready nose with a touch of hops. Nice malty taste with a light sweetness. Very easy drinking.

Initial aroma once poured was slightly musty, like a Becks, but that quickly disappeared and it bacame quite fresh in aroma. Appearance is golden in color with a nice long lasting head. Very smooth and fresh in taste, a classic lager. I can tste why AB would try to stop the name of this import from its original name.
