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!”

Ungstrup (30970) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2008
Bottled. A dark golden beer with a fast disappearing off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with a touch of caramel, and so is the flavor. The finish is dry with a touch of metal.

Bottled (BB 11/2008)
Golden color, small white head, some lace. Some Saaz hops in the nose otherwise quite neutral: light buttery and papery notes. Quite watery (well, 3.8 % = no suprises). Lacks most flavors. Light hoppyness with weak buttery notes. Watered down bulk class pils.

Koelschtrinker (13640) - 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

imdownthepub (11664) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2008
Bottled, 500ml, pasteurised from Tesco, Plzen. Gold, carbonated white head. Working my way through the lagers brought back from my shopping trip to Tesco’s in Plzen, and some of them are not very good. This is thin, vanilla, buttery some boiled notes. Maybe some sharpness on the close fighting its way through, but mostly just poor.
