Pardál Světlé Výčepní Pivo 9.7°
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!”

Bierkrug (2132) - - JUL 29, 2011
500 ml bottle at home in Germany from Wasanas. Golden, beige creamy head. Aroma is straw and hops. Taste is grains, straw, and some hops, and grassy, but kind of harsh. Palate is pine and citrus and even rougher end. Kind of bland yet harsh at the same time. I did not enjoy this one much.

crossovert (8864) - Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Shitty green bottle. It is a lower-alcohol brew that smells like farts and tastes like bitter, watery sweat.

Koelschtrinker (12210) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Herb-bitterer Antrunk. Kurz danach ist das Bier absolut flach, die erwähnten Aromen aus dem Antrunk ebben schnell ab, nur von der Bitterkeit bleibt überhaupt etwas vorhanden. Trocken, aromenarm, langweilig. Einer der wenigen Pluspunkte ist, dass das Bier angenehm erfrischt. Naja... 8/5/6/4/5/5

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Pretty lame aroma, I must say...there is just not much there at all! Good bitterness in the flavor, but weak, all bread, touch of spice. Sticky in the mouth a little bit. Drinkable but shall not buy again.

motelpogo (7182) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 7, 2010
bottled and on tap. obviously budvar would like this to be for them what gambrinus is for urquell: a cheaply made, high-selling beer which is seen as somehow being of acceptable standard because it is associated with a well-regarded brewery. this is limp and yellow with a generic stale hop aroma, modest bitterness and plain flour finish.

cagou007 (461) - FRANCE - NOV 29, 2010
Pale yellow colour. Aromas are fruits, flowers, cereals and hop. Short finish. Nice beer for a sunny afternoon in Czech Republic !

estpiwo (1310) - ESTONIA - OCT 17, 2010
Glass bottle. Golden color. Hoppy herbal aroma. Flavor is hoppy, but quite watery. Finish is quite hoppy. Better than many eurolagers.
