Small average head,smooth golden color. Soft cracker aroma-more wheatthin than saltine. Subtle hop, pretty simple but well balanced.

Very enjoyable, but bound to get low ratings because it’s light-bodied and non-complex. This tastes good and is refreshing. I’d gladly drink it any time.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2003 Warm, buttery, malty aroma. Crisp malt taste with reassuring bite of hops. Excellent for a lighter beer. Stop for a moment and dream that this is what American 'pilseners' taste like. Now come back to reality.

Not a bad brew. Wanted to do a little research into my family’s Czech roots. How better than by drinking beer? I’d drink it again. Pretty decent stuff.

This really is a great lager beer. Light dusty nose, gold color, low tight head. Lemony flavors followed by a classy bitterness. Great balance and a clean palette.

Ha. No comparison between Bud and Budvar. If these two beers were on Celebrity Boxing, Budvar would pummel the everliving crap out of Bud, then smash the can on it’s forehead. Then it’d fight Adolphus Busch, beat his ass, rampage through the Bud factory in St. Louis and beat ass all the way through. Every last bottling machine would be a smouldering heap, the brewing tanks, nothing but charred smoking rubble, and as the piece de resistance, it’d set fire to the whole operation using those beechwood chips as a starter. I think this is the best pilsener in the world. A standard of what all pilseners should taste, smell, and look like. Considering it’s such a delicate style, it may be the best beer in the world.
