4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2009 Draft, at the St. Petersburg, Russia airport lounge, May, 2004. Now this is what an "original pilsner" should taste like, not the poor, skunked bottle I rated last summer. Fresh from a well-maintained tap, it’s a fine-looking beer, gold color, with a good head. A golden malt flavor, too, but just mellow enough to let a wonderfully delicate floral hop character come through. The best beer I’d had after a week of standard Russian pale lagers.
And yet, I can see a bit of the flavor lineage to the American Budweiser... let’s just say the St. Louis product is severely de-volved from the prototype.
Original rating: Bottled. Oooh, looks like my first taste of this classic brew is from a skunked bottle. Still, it has a great spicy hop nose and a decent head. I almost got kind of an orangey hop taste. It’s simply more of a beer taste. I’ll hope to try this again soon and re-rate it.

Pours a clear gold with small white head. Aroma is your typical malty pilsner smell. Not a lot of flavor but has a hint of lemon. This is an easy beer to drink especially considering its a pilsner. I wouldn’t buy it again but if it was offered I wouldn’t turn it down. Bottle from World Of Beers Middleton.

Zapach dość wyczuwalny, chmielowy. Słaba piana, widoczne bąbelki. Delikatna goryczka, ale w smaku pustawe.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl. bottle. Clear golden coloured with white and minimal head. Good lacing. Aroma is malt, bread along with some floral notes. Taste is medium sweet along with very light hoppy bitter flavour. It’s delicious. Medium bodied and oily textured. Carbonation is very well -- quite lively. Loved the smooth mouthfeel. Dry and lightly bitter finish is very pleasant. Actually I didn’t expect it to be that good.

Piękny wygląd. Wspaniała barwa.
Pina obfita, równomierna. Niestety niezbyt trwała.
Aromat typowy dla piw typu koncernowy lager. Słodkawość, przez która nic się nie przebiło.
W smaku typowy koncernowy lager.

Bottle 33 cl from Systembolaget. Herbal, hint of citrus, very pilsner-y. Some bitterness. Medium/light body, medium/high carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Very nice and refreshing, could have used a bit higher bitterness.

500ml canned 2016-06-04. Pour light golden and clear with a small white rim foam and small cloud. Aroma is of sweet cookie. Taste is of wet grain, bread. Medium carbonation, good for the style, medium body and a bit dry. Medium malty finish. Yep, that original "Budweiser" is way better than its North American version, way better.

This is a lager; pretty malty really and not too bad. I think it is overpriced in my area, so no real reason to get again, but it is worth trying.
