Because the pilsners are so perishable, and because I’ve not been to the source, the style remains slightly beyond reach to me. But I love the subtle differences between the classic (available) styles. Budvar emphasizes a gentle, full malt. The hops are floral on the nose and peppery on the palate, but play a secondary role. The finish is wonderfully crisp, accent on the malt.

Very Average, nothing brilliant. Pale in colour as one expects from a lager. flavour is slightly hoppy but overridden by the carbonation. Okay for hot Aussie summers, but personally the newly arrived Praga Pilsener has more too offer with its classic Euro flavour.

Uma das melhores pilsens, com ótima drinkability. Malte e lúpulo divinamente equilibrados. Final amargo na medida e com uma refrescância absoluta. Espuma média, límpida e de um dourado perfeito para essa lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from can. Aroma is grassy hay. Very clear golden color with white head. Light bitter taste. Light bodied, with lively carbonation, and a dry finish. Overall a nice crisp lager.

Holmen2 (906) - NORWAY - AUG 27, 2014
From can. Clear golden. Dense, but slowly diminishing, head and lacing. Superb and refined aroma of continental hops, with some malt sweetness. Flowerfields and newly mowed lawn. Less hops and less complexity in taste. Good drinkability.

Clear gold, medium white head. Hop and "big lager" on the nose. Bitter sweet with a watered down finish. Overcarbonated. I swear this was good last time, not so much now.

This stuff is like KFC: I get a weird hankering for it about once every five years, and then I remember why I haven’t had it in five years. Nose is grass, grain and skunk. Taste is the same. Finish is ambiguously dry. It’s better than its bastard son, but that’s about it.

Bottle. Clear golden with a small head. Skunky and grainy aroma. Sweetish, pale malt and grassy flavors, mild herbal bitterness. Light-medium bodied. Feels not fresh though BB 04/15.

Bottle, clear pour, no head, tastes like budweiser,so not much of a taste or nose at all, just light easy drinking lager.
