Canuckistani (41) - Dundas, Ontario, - JAN 23, 2008
Difficult to give an accurate deScription of the beer fresh out of the liquor store; as this was cellared for close to two years before I got to it. Pours golden with a loose white head. Contains flecks like a trappist beer but that may be due to age. Sweet, fruity malts with grains blended in nicely. Lightly hopped. Thick, creamy palate is the way that a lager should taste.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2016 From Hipercor. In Teku glass. Watching Vikings 4x07. Feels much more refreshing and clean than the pilsner urquell, both in aroma and taste. Tasted just after a pilsner urquell, for comparing.

King_Alex_II (1024) - SWITZERLAND - APR 24, 2016
Blind test of (mostly) swiss lagers. Golden color with foam ring. Very shy nose. Strongish, yet watery malty body. Standard aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with an average white head. Aroma of malt and grass. Taste is malt, grass, floral, and some citrus. Decent.

lokis333 (275) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - APR 22, 2016
Clear gold color with nice but not strongest white foam. Aromas sweet malt, green peas, cabage and cucamber (strange I know but it does smell fresh of greens in a nicer way). Palate, medium body with with not too watery texture either. leaving very light sweet malty and again that green fresh aftertaste. Taste is on the sweet side of light malt, green peas or very light and more dusty hops. Overall, surprised! Can not complain for a lager type it is very good lager. Not my favourite beer but not pee water either. If you like lager style beers give it a shot. (definatly not same budweiser as american one that one is pure pee water)

Raistlin (244) - London, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2016
Golden crisp colour. Clean texture. Has white head that dissapears immediately, which is very disappointing. Visually unappealing. Not as much carbonation as i expected, but pleasant tasting. Smooth and medium body. Medium texture. Pleasant not overbearing after taste that lasts.

NoRemorse86 (46) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 1, 2016
W aromacie słodowość, trochę chmielu. Barwa złocista, kiepska piana. Goryczka jak na jasnego lagera całkiem przyzwoita.

Pint at R.F.D. Washington. Well I finally had it - it’d been years and years and I finally had real Budweiser. Actually, I was quite happy with the results here, I expected a skunky, grassy mess with little or no flavor to the actual beer. This is a crisp, clean lager. Light grassy notes, crisp lagered notes. I can’t guarantee that this experience will ever be duplicated.

Golden colour. Light aroma, fresh hoppy taste, floral, balanced between bitterness and sweetness. Very good beer for summer.

Henrik85 (43) - SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2016
Light, fresh and malty aroma. Fresh and light arrival followed by a distinctive bitterness that remains for quite some time. The mouth-feel is rather thin and watery though. Lighter carbonation than average in my opinion. Not extraordinary by any means, but still a good solid pilsner that goes down very easily in any situation.

Originally rated on 6/25/08. "I got this one as a single, wish i would have gotten a sixer! It pours a golden, fully carbonated body with a mid sized white cap, that left some lacing. The aroma was slightly skunky, it wasnt offensive but pleasant. Mouthfeel was full and smooth, went down easy. It tasted better as i drank it. I am not a big fan of lagers but this was a pretty good brew
