makes the US budweiser taste this urine, but still lacks an edge to make it a strong success. Decent old czech beer tho.

In a bottle at the Heorot in Muncie, Indiana. After drinking Delirium Tremens, I tried this, so this might not be entirely fair, but I couldn’t really tell any difference at all between A/B Budweiser and the "original Budweiser." Pale straw, medium head, not much aroma, very lightly hopped, light grainy taste. This tasted like a fairly typical overseas premium lager rather than a true Pilsener, but then again, I am also comparing it to Pilsener Urquell. I didn’t like this as much. Not enough body or hops to make it interesting to me, although I’m sure it’s a good summer thirst-quenching beer.

"This beer pour out a nice yellow color with just a little bit of head. Has a very nice light hint of hop flavor, nothing special. It did go down smooth, but overall just an average beer.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2005
12 oz bottle pours golden with a short white foamy head. Aroma is saaz hops and cereal like grains. Starts off quite sweet. Frosted flakes is the prevailing first sip taste. Finished by grassy hops. Crisp and clean palate with a slightly dry finish. Carbonated just about right for a pilsener. A little more tasty than i expected it to be.

piscator34 (2370) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 17, 2005
Gold in colour and strongly carbonated. Classic saaz hop, sulfur, and light malt aromas... with perhaps a slightly greater leaning towards the malt than other Bohemian pilsners that I’ve tried. Flavor wise, the pilsner malt is quite strong upfront, but the hops take over big time on the back end with lots of grassy flavors and coarse bitterness. Not quite as polished as a non-skunked Urquell, but still pretty good. Thanks Lubiere.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - DEC 12, 2005
Grainy nose with a light hops presence. Pours a sparkling blonde with a frothy white head that is mostly diminishing without much lace. The brew has good balance with some sweetness and a light acidity prevailing, and is pretty neutral; but has good flavor for a lager and a decent finish for the style. The light and watery body is crisp and clean, with a slightly dry feel to the finish.
