It really stinks that this, the true Budweiser cannot use its real name in this country because it is much better than American Budweiser. Light in color, but not in taste. One of the better pilseners out there.

Thatnks to IslandHaole for this guy. Shimmering golden pour, med/small white head, active carbonation. Aroma is slightly skunky, light hops. Light sweetness, light bitterness, med/light feel. Probably the best pils I’ve ever had.

unclebuck (1) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 6, 2005 does not count
This is a classic Czech Pilsner, delicate Saaz aroma, average head, a medium bitterness that is slightly less than most. Has a clean, soft, dry finish.

This is a good Pilsener with a fine soft taste. The only thing is the foam disappeared completely.

asheft (3026) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2005 [bottle] Bright light gold with little head that quickly formed a small ring. Nice gentle noble hops aroma with clean malt. Flavour was of clean, sweet malt with subtle, gentle hops and almost no skunk. Very clean. Light to medium body with good carbonation and amost a watery aftertaste/feel. [on tap in Ceske Budejovice] Bright straw with a 1/2 cm, lasting white head with okay lacing. Crisp, very fresh, noble hops aroma and a bit of malt with caramel notes. Gentle, noble hops flavour, well-balanced with malt, but both subdued, compared to Pilsner or Gambrinus--more of a session beer. A little bit of Chinese tea flavour, but a clean finish, with no bitterness. Light body and moderate carbonation.

Geiserich (4254) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JAN 1, 2005
A nice, good drinkable beer but not a real highlight. Nice sweetish, malty aroma with hop notes. Golden color, averange head. Ligh sweet, hoppy, light dry aftertaste.

Well now. classic pilsner flavor. this is how it is done. I’m getting plentiful fruit aromas and flavors. am i wrong? whatever, i get fruit and crisp, clean grain flavors. very solid.

DerWeg (1603) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2004 This beer is sort of a one-trick pony, no big winding complexity but a bit of pure malty sweetness set off with a few classic Czech hops. This beer is exactly what it’s supposed to be and kicks ass with Moravian Schnitzel and potato salad. It even travels better than Plzensky Prazdroj (Urquell) which is a super beer fresh in CZ but whos flavors tend to dis-integrate with handling and storage.

Golden pouring with a nice head which surprisingly not lasted too long. Mild flavour with some malty taste.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2004
Pours gold edging on light copper with a white short lasted head. Mild bready/biscuity malt aroma with a light grassy hop smell there too. Flavour was suprisingly bland compared to what I was expecting. Light sweet start with a mild bitter finish. Feel is a little watery in my opinion too. Disappointing.
