3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle. Pours opaque black with a good head, most of which disappears quickly. The nose has chocolate and some smokiness. The taste has lots of chocolate and maybe some grapes. The palate has a rich texture, quite a big structure and it is quite clean. Overall, a very rich but balanced beer. Why do they have to put ’budweiser’ on the bottle? It doesn’t make sense.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown, with a creamy head quickly receding head. The aroma is very pleasant but not overpowering, with sweet caramel malt, light notes of smoke and a very light hint of the saaz hops in use. Flavour is of sweet, lightly roasted malts and some smoke that sticks in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light tan head, fades quickly, over a dark mahogany beer. Smells predominantly of the malts, toastiness with chocolate and caramel but there is also some spice there from the hops. Medium body with up front flavours from the hops dominating with the sweeter malt flavour showing up later. Nice easy drinking beer, I’d buy it again.

Nice balance, some sweetness and a strong hint of liquorice. Goes down easily, not overly complex but certainly a good beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Dark brown color,almost black. Nice, creamy head. Slightly metallic aroma at first which turns into a slightly chocolate/licorice kind of malty aroma. Good mouthfeel, very drinkable. Fruity flavor, with some chocolaty malts, some roasty notes and a hint of metallicness. Not bad.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dem super-dunklen Dark Lager entsrömt ein schwer malzig-röstiger Geruch, stout-artig.
Der Geschmack ist kaffeeartig-karamellig, wobei sich die Herbe dezent im Hintergrund hält.
Ein trockenes Finish bildet den Abschluß.
Das Dark Lager von Budweiser Budvar bedarf einer gewissen Eingewöhnung, die sich aber lohnt. Ein ausgewogenes, leckeres Bier, das durch seinen sahnigen Körper zu gefallen weiß.
In der Bewertung ein glatter Durchmarsch der 12.Test vom 13.11.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle, from CBA, Hungary. Fine sweet, chocolate and caramell smell, but taste isn’t harmonic, isn’t sweet at all. It is not problem, but not harmonic. Medium tasted, dark brown beer with correct foam and Co2. Sometimes earthy Saaz hop is too strong for this beer, especially at first, and aftertaste.
