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!”

DSG (12153) - 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.

500ml bottle from Morrisons - Looks really good with the crystal clear yellow body, fluffy white head, and dancing carbonation. After that it is pretty much just a bog-standard lager, albeit a decent one. But... for a quid a bottle, what can you say?

BlackHaddock (6375) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2013
Green half-litre bottle from my local Morrisons Supermarket: BBD 18 Sep 14, poured into two Veltins Pilsner badged glasses on 2 Nov 13. Looked like almost every other Czech lager/pilsner on earth: golden, clear and bright. Usual no show of a lasting head too. Gets my regular score of 3 for an odourless pilsner/lager: although this did have a slight metallic hint with a grass stain on it. The taste was neither here nor there: grains rule overall, some sweetness at first, then a dry hop finish ensues. Refreshing enough, but not the best lager/pilsner in the world, that’s for sure.

Bottle. Bought from Morrisons at Bilston. Bronze with a malty aroma. Maltiness dominates producing a flavour that sems stronger than its real strength. A good Czech style lager.
