The starting procedure for the production of Yeast Lager is the same as for the Budweiser Budvar Czech Premium Lager. The difference is in the fact that before filling a certain volume of “rings” are added into the finished beer for consumption quality. A new culture of brewing yeast in the best condition and new ratio of extract is added into the beer. In the transport package (KEG barrels) there is a further level of fermentation of beer which brings better sensory quality and higher biological value. The Budweiser Budvar Yeast Lager contains lice culture of yeast, so therefore has a higher content of amino-acids and B complex vitamins. It also contains a higher ratio of high-molecular proteins which cause a stronger fullness of flavour. The flavour is stronger up to very strong which is positively reflected in the more fresher flavour of ringed lager. Experts will also feel the light flavour and aroma of yeast. The foam is rich, compact and very stable. The colour of the beer is golden-yellow, the presence of yeast in beer causes the beer to be non sparkling, but clear up to a light opalescent. The ringed lager is delivered exclusively into selected gastronomic operating units which fulfil the strict conditions for maturing of beer in KEG barrels because before tapping they must stand in an unchangeable position for a period of at least one week at the temperature of 6-8 °C.

330ml bottle poured into Leffe chalice, golden, head was tiny and faded fast, no lacing. Aroma was red cabbage and parmesan which to me suggests it was made with Saaz hops. Tasted grass and earth. The finish was slightly bitter and earthy. Mouthfull was slightly thick, fairly smooth, less carbonation than expected. Overall passable as a Czech style Pils, could have been a bit more interesting though.

All of what I wrote for B:Original also applies here. Basically the same beer. The only one tapped into glass mugs at a special area of Brutal Assault festival.

On tap at Masné Krámy, ?eské Bud?jovice. Clear golden with a large, white head. Mild malty aroma with herbal and grassy notes and hints of fruits. Moderate sweet with mild malty flavours and a nice herbal bitterness. Tasty and very sessionable.

Gold color, very good taste, a "special" Bud beer, that deserves to be tried.

A great example of good lager. In a great form - normal lager with freshly added younger beer. It has higher carbonation with a great drinkability. Aroma is hoppy fresh. Hops & yeast dominates the taste, with a little bit signs of sour aftertaste. One of my favorites.

Keg tap at The Lord Clifden, Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham as ’Yeast Lager’ (4.1%). dark orange, clear and a bit fizzy. Some head but not much. Incredible aroma of wheatgrass, sourdough, roast courgette. Taste is less exciting, but retains a sour-bitter yeastiness not found in normal Czech lagers. A real find.

When in Prague, drink this stuff. Great to see the bud logo and actually get something of quality.

On tap, budvarka. Clear pale body with low head. Aroma is light malty, crisp. Taste has medium noble bitterness, medium malty sweetness, pretty balanced. Body is full, high carbonation.
