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!”

johndoughty (4982) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2013
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.

Glass bottle. Golden color. Hoppy herbal aroma. Flavor is hoppy, but quite watery. Finish is quite hoppy. Better than many eurolagers.

erickok (5399) - 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.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2007 Bottle. Strong grassy nose with some sweetness and a bit of hop presence. Clear pale yellow with a bubbly white head. Really well balanced, lots of well-contained hop presence in a standard pils malt background. Assertive palate with some lingering sharpness. Really good for the style.

larsga (7293) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 8, 2009
Medium shiny offwhite lasting head. Golden body with carbonation. Grassy mealy resiny caramel aroma. Dry-sweetish resiny hoppy caramel taste with wood notes. Clean palate. Watery mouthfeel. Thinnish body. Dry resiny papery hoppy aftertaste with lingering malty notes. Quite nice and drinkable. Really the hops that make this interesting. (0.5l bottle from some corner shop, Prague.)
