4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2009 Draft, at the St. Petersburg, Russia airport lounge, May, 2004. Now this is what an "original pilsner" should taste like, not the poor, skunked bottle I rated last summer. Fresh from a well-maintained tap, it’s a fine-looking beer, gold color, with a good head. A golden malt flavor, too, but just mellow enough to let a wonderfully delicate floral hop character come through. The best beer I’d had after a week of standard Russian pale lagers.
And yet, I can see a bit of the flavor lineage to the American Budweiser... let’s just say the St. Louis product is severely de-volved from the prototype.
Original rating: Bottled. Oooh, looks like my first taste of this classic brew is from a skunked bottle. Still, it has a great spicy hop nose and a decent head. I almost got kind of an orangey hop taste. It’s simply more of a beer taste. I’ll hope to try this again soon and re-rate it.

Bottle into pils glass, clear straw yellow color with white head. Aroma notes of pale malt sweetness and stronger that average grassy/earthy hops. Taste adds some faint floral and herbal notes. Light body, moderate-heavy carbonation, crisp with clean finish. Tad more flavorful than your average pale lager, pretty solid.

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.

Blind test of (mostly) swiss lagers. Golden color with foam ring. Very shy nose. Strongish, yet watery malty body. Standard aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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)

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.

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.
