Nice clean flavor, although a bit mild in my opinion; the grassy hops do come through and blends well with the malts. A well made and enjoyable example of this style. Get it in the large 500ml brown bottle as I did.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
