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.

Característico sabor metálico que a mi no me gusta pero aún así roza el aprobado.

Better than any of the macro lagers. Very drinkable thirst quenching pilsner syle lager. However green bottle, need to change that !!

Bawelt (574) - Lyon, FRANCE - SEP 17, 2016
Une pils parmi les pils. Peut-ętre un peu plus intéressante avec un petit fond malté un peu plus pechu que la moyenne, un houblon moins dégueulasse et écoeurant que le saaz.

330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear golden, long lasting medium size white head, good lacing. Grassy aroma, white bread and crackers. Crisp and soft mouthfeel, medium carbonated. Clean grassy taste, gentle floral notes, white bread, biscuits and a hint of citrus zest. Mild bitterness in the finish.

Michcio (542) - Gdansk, POLAND - SEP 14, 2016
Barwa złota, klarowne, piana niezbyt obfita, redukuje się do cienkiej warstwy. W aromacie słodowe, leciutkie estry. W smaku słodowe, lekko zbożowe, z goryczką maksymalnie średnią. Nieco wodniste, wysycenie w normie, niezła pijalność. W sumie bez większych wad, ale brakuje konkretu.

Blueshawk (386) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2016
- gelbe Farbe mit leichter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - außer einer leichten Hopfennote (und das auch nur mit viel Fantasie) sind keinerlei Aromen erkennbar - Carbonisierung ist mir eine Spur zu brausig - geschmacklich ein wenig Hopfenbitternis und das war’s dann auch - der Abgang wird dann endgültig wässrig und leer Fazit: Schmeckt nach nichts.
