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!”

flying_pig (1409) - SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2013
500ml bottle from Morrisons (Ł1.99):
Part sweet, part bitter aroma that wasn’t very pleasant at all and contained some malts with a basic hop aroma on top. There was some bread and corn with a bit of barely towards the end too.
Clear & light amber coloured with a thin, foamy white head that turns soapy lacing quickly.
Bitter & quite a cheap tasting beer with some grassy hops and bitter malts upfront with a hint of butterscotch or vanilla but quite a light one. There is a strange sweetness that quickly turns bitter half way through and is coupled with a slightly skunky taste. The beer seems cheap and a little stale.
Light bodied and quite weak with light carbonation and a flat taste that has touches of citrus but still makes a pretty poor beer on the palate with a bitter taste that lingers for far too long.

A rather poor beer from the outset and a sorry excuse for a Czech lager. The taste was overly bitter and seemed stale with a taste that seemed very slightly off. The beer definitely tasted cheap and it was a struggle to finish the bottle.

berkshirejohn (5950) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2013
50cl bottle from Morrisons. Amber with a soapy white head; grassy aroma; soft grainy body; and some leafy bitterness before a predominantly malty finish. Rather basic, but then it’s only Ł1 a bottle, so I wasn’t expecting much.

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2013
Helles Bernstein, ordentlich Schaum. Verhaltenes Hopfenaroma. Herb-bitterer Antrunk. Im Verlauf eher dünn, minimal malzig und leicht citrus-herb ausklingend. Das alles allerdings auf unterem Niveau. Ein Allerweltsschankbier, mehr nicht.

erickok (5272) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2012
Very clear, golden body with foamy white head. Aroma of bagels, some spice, some classic hops. Not at all tainted with those common artifical or grainy smells in pale lagers. Easy drinkable low to medium carbonation. Nice rounded mouth feel. Light bitter, short aftertaste. Not mind blowing but surprisingly flavourful and well made. Nice one.
