Bottle. Pours a clear, very bubbly gold with an average size semi-lasting off-white head. Decent aroma of sweet malt, grain, fruit and hops -- surprisingly, no skunkyness. Flavour follows the aroma but is a touch too sweet and a little watery. Light to medium bodied. Nothing great but better then I expected and one of the better Euro Lagers I’ve tried.

Overall a pretty run of the mill lager, but much better than the american counterpart.

Wow. Drank this while in Prague. What in the world happened to the US version of this great beer? Clear yellow, and nice clean had. Malt and hops, but perfectly balanced. The slight sweetness and good use of hopping make this really good pils. Very nice to drink.

jacobwennbom (357) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2006
Yellow with white top. Taste of sweetish malt (and suprisingly much of it) and lots of bitter hops. Nicely balanced indeed. Aroma is hoppy. Great beer. And Czech!

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2006
500ml Bottle, 5% a/v Smells of grains with a slight hop tinge. The taste consists of hops and malt, nicely balanced. The aftertaste is largely malt which slowly fades. Not a bad beer really.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2008 Green bottle, 500ml from LCBO nice golden Euro Pilsner, great head (wish it lasted longer though), and decent malty/floral aroma. Superb malt/hop balance - the subtle sweetness and slight lingering bitterness makes this a great Bohemian. **RE-RATE: fresh batch at LCBO, bought a bunch on sale. Knocked up a couple points. Must say again, really good beer**

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

saxo (19357) - Højbjerg, 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.
