A very nice Bohemian Pilsener. Less hoppy and a bit more malty than Pilsner Urquell, and a little bit easier to drink. Hops contribute some herbal and spicy qualities, and there is a "leafy green" flavor throughout, but the beer isn't at all that bitter.

Bottled. Aroma reminded me of fresh crabs... in a good way. Bitter spicy flavour with hints of cloves. Overall, quite good but not my cup of tea.

This is the way I remember lagers tasting in Europe. Much fuller aroma,much fuller and more complex taste,I prefer this to Urquell.

Pours yellow with a small head. Lots of bubbles. Mild sweetness and hops. A pleasant, refreshing drink.

Bottle. Golden color with a quickly disapearing head. Aroma is slightly malty, but very light and refreshing. Very light body that finishes clean. Very well balanced. Flavor is light malts, and light hops - touch of spice. This beer is good, but it's very subtle - nothing stands out from the rest. Easy to drink a lot of this.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2004 Pale golden color with a generous white head. Nose is lightly sweet and bready. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic with a slight bitterness. Finish is kinda dry and lightly hop spicy.

Pours a clear golden body. Nose is slightly skunked, but has a decent malt and light hop character underlying it. The taste is malted also with a grassy, crisp tongue. A little bit of skunked bitterness makes it's way in too, and detracts from the overall taste. Very soft mouthfeel. Clean finish with also no aftertaste. Pretty good pilsener.

Green Bottle--ugh. Nose is subtle, slight hop aroma followed by very mild maltiness like creme soda. White head with good retention and lace, small bubbles and good structure. Color is a pale yellow like summer wheat or straw. Tastes subtly like lemon or apple cider. Mild malt apparent on first taste and smooth easy-going hop character. Just about everything a traditional Pils should have, but it's almost like a "light" pils. I've had better. Still, I love Budvar on a hot summer day!

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2003 A fairly strong lager. Has lots of flavor and a light appearance. Has a decent sweet taste. About as good as a lager can get.

Pale yellow with a thin, quickly disappearing head. Sweet corn nose. Better than the BMC beers, but not a lot. Cleaner palate and finish, but still almost a cloying corn sweetness. Good with a sandwich.
