saxo (17998) - Hřjbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2006
Bottle. Medium head with medium duration. Color is light golden. Aroma is a bit stronger than the average lager and is mainly hops and malt. Taste is hops with some malt and a a slightly bitter finish.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2006
Great hop profile in this one, balanced by the slight sweetness. A great example of a Czech pils, a classic, I haven’t tryed this one in the States yet, but in Europe, its a great drink

Budejovicky Budvar Czech Premium Lager. 500 ml green bottle. Color: a beautiful golden amber. Clear. Large white head that quickly fades away. Sharp aroma with sugars and a little alcohol. Apart from that I don’t know how to describe the aroma. Sweet taste of cookie, and somewhat bitter aftertaste. The balance between the sweetness and the bitterness is exquisite. Watery mouthfeel. A medium level of carbon dioxide. I like this beer.

HighlanderOne (1304) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - JUN 17, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2006 Poured from bottle (Czechvar). This is really nice - a pilsener that could be confused with a lager (as I did). Hop presence in the aroma that almost disappears until the tasting, where it asserts its dominance. Hops are nor dominant, and do not overwhelm the other qualities of the beer. Very well made, very enjoyablew brew.

Diogčne (1207) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2006
500 ml bottle from la SAQ. Pour a clear golden yellow with a thick white head diminishing quickly. Aroma is malty, a little herbal and floral. Taste is really well balanced, at first hops are dominating, then malt is showing up just before a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Some floral, honey and citrusy notes. An excellent pils, altough this is not my favorite style.

The original Budweiser. Much better than the American Bud. This is much better overall. A little maltier and hoppier and cleaner taasting.

billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - JUN 8, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2006 Bottle 16.9 oz. Clear golden yellow w white diminishing head, good carb, min lace. Aroma is that funky mineral water, light dry malt, & skunky Euro in the (brown) bottle hops. Flavor is the same with some spiciness. A bit better tasting, and fuller bodied than Urquell. A touch of soap in the flavor. Dry nicely bitter finish. Every time I start drinking Czech Pils I ask myself: Am I sure I really like this stuff, but after a few mouthfulls I don’t want to stop drinking it.
