Dudar's rating

Dudar (111) - Minsk, - JAN 30, 2012
Aroma of sulphur, hay, grain, bread crust, floral hops. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, noble hop flavour and snap bitterness. Malty, bready taste. Clean aftertaste. Nice pilsner, not more

I spend several weeks each year in the Czech Republic and enjoy the beers a lot (I find that you are less likely to go wrong with a Czech lager than those from anywhere else - even though British ale is my usual choice). Budvar is, of course, one of the iconic and most widely known, brewed with whole Saaz hops. Newcomers will probably find it a bit watery and disappointing, particularly in comparison with the more characterful Pilsner Urquell - Budvar lacks the bitterness and length of that classic. Nevertheless, there are few beers more quenching on a hot and sunny day. It is a great session beer - clean and pure. Appearance: straw coloured; large but rapidly disappearing white head. Aroma: very subtle; cereal in there somewhere. Palate: mainly smooth and honeyed but with detectable edge (particularly at the front of the mouth); Fast disappearing aftertaste. Flavour: Honey, grass and cereals; flowery; good balance of bitterness and sweetness.

Fles gedeeld met Roelzie1986. Het is een pils achtig bier met redelijk wat schuim.

Bottle. Clear golden colour, average, quickly disappearing white head. Aroma of pale malt, bread and skunk. Taste is light sweet, light to medium bitter, pale malt, bread, grain. Light+ body, thin, watery texture, average carbonation. Macro lager, but fairly drinkable.

Blind tasting out of a black glass/ Sampled together with Dr. Beer . Smell is corny malts, not much hops, mild fruityness ( orange) that is rather hidden . very subtile touch of bitterness. Very distant ambermalts. taste is sweet, corny malts, very mild bitterness. Very mild buttery notes, not sure of dyacethyl? Some ambermalts. Mildly astrigent. Very mild caramel notes. Aftertaste is weak. Not very refreshing, rather easy drinking.

Simple straightforward light beer minerality turns metallic on the pallet. Balanced and underwhelming

It pours golden with a white head. Head retention is moderately low. It has a strong herbal aroma that is grainy sweet. The is a hint of honey in the background. It is grainy sweet with a moderate fruit flavor. The fruit flavor is pear like in quality. It has a moderately light body with a grainy sweet aftertaste. Overall, this is a grainy sweet fruity beer.
