I’m assuming that most of these reviews are from the bottle, not from a tap in Praha. This is simply the most delicious beer on the planet when fresh.

Another great example of a pilsner... malty and mildly bitter with hints of sweetness and bread flavor.

Bottled. Pours a golden amber color. Well carbonated. Crisp grainy and malty taste. Grassy scent. Excellent finish. Lives up to its expectation! One of the best pilsners in the world!

The so called "real" budweiser...let’s see: much fuller nose with a definete lagerness to it. Slightly fruity and yeasty - fullness that I wouldn’t expect from a budweise-type. Light, heathery, pleasant. OK.

I don’t really know why so many people compare this to other swill import lagers like heineken, becks, etc. - this is a wonderfully spicy, floral, buttery pils - medium-bodied, yet really quaffable - just a great pilsner.

Boletus (52) - POLAND - MAY 10, 2006
On tap at several restaurants in Vienna. This is an ultimate lager but it counts if you have it from a bottle or draught and if it was handled properly. One can say it is watery and not complex but as long as you need just a refreshing, cold, golden colored drink with a nice head the Budweiser is unbeatable.

just a bump up from a heineken. Good, but probably not worth the extra costs to import the stuff.

What can I say? A real pilsner, and the ORIGINAL Budweiser. The only reason its called Czechvar in the US, is because Anhauser-Bush threw a tantrum over the fact that people may confuse this true ’King Of Beers’ over their own mouthwash. Gorgeous, hoppy, some great bitter depth to it.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Pours a pale golden color with a shallow spritzy froth. Aroma of crisp malt and some hay. Ultra light nectar with ample residual effers. Flavors are light, crisp, and clean with a slight skunkiness on the finish. I detected a little clove somewhere in there. Overall; mow the lawn and have a beer, you’ll never see me drinking this beer.
