Traditionally, the strength and beauty of the Czech brewing industry lay in the wide variety and uniqueness of its product range. Budweiser Budvar, N.C. decided to go against this trend and enrich the Czech beer culture with a beer of a new, original flavour particularly suitable for the typical Czech beer consumers. Therefore the brewery invited the real consumers, i.e. those who are fond of beer and have experience in its consumption, to take part in developing it. For several months, the aroma, colour and flavour were being tuned in the brewery. Combining traditional brewing skills with the experience of Budweiser Budvar’s brewers and challenging ideas of many beer connoisseurs resulted in the creating of the present Czech beer idol – “Pardál” beer, the perfect beer for sharp and full bitter flavoured beer lovers. The true beer for groups of friends who can label it : “It’s one of us!”

HampshirePhil (240) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2014
500 ml bottle - the cheap logo (unusually containing Hebrew as the second language to English?) and large bottle are sign of the cheap mass produced export. This doesn’t hide it’s colours, pale yellowish colour, frothy white head and high carbonation and little taste.

TheCametron (2347) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle. Weak and ineffectual. Pale gold and thin on flavour. Refreshing enough and as a Svetle it trumps pale lager by default but it’s a pauper among princes in the Czech Republic.

tomer (2878) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAR 11, 2014
At a tasting, thanks zvikar, clear and a little deep gold colour, sweet plastic aroma with some bread, sweet honey fruity flavour with some vanila,light bitterness. Not too good and a touch cloying.

scotty (1137) - SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Bought Morrisons. Looks good, nice golden colour, white head which disappears in a few minutes! Nose is quite malty, as is the palate, there’s a hint of hops but malt dominates. A good lager, better than expected, could perhaps do with a slightly higher abv.

DSG (11505) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden with a white head. As "Pardál Czech Imported Lager" with a panther on the label. Decent grassy hops aroma with light graininess and a bready note. Flavor has light sweetish bready malt and a nice finish, grassy, with mild to moderate bitterness. Light to medium-bodied. I wasn’t expecting anything good, but this one turned out to be a decent quaffable Pilsener.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2014
It’s dark golden with a white head. The aroma has notes of straw, malt and light flower. The flavor has a medium sweetness with notes of straw, grain, old hay and flowers. The finish has a light dry bitterness.
