Traditionally, the strength and beauty of the Czech brewing industry lay in the wide variety and uniqueness of its product range. Budweiser Budvar, N.C. decided to go against this trend and enrich the Czech beer culture with a beer of a new, original flavour particularly suitable for the typical Czech beer consumers. Therefore the brewery invited the real consumers, i.e. those who are fond of beer and have experience in its consumption, to take part in developing it. For several months, the aroma, colour and flavour were being tuned in the brewery. Combining traditional brewing skills with the experience of Budweiser Budvar’s brewers and challenging ideas of many beer connoisseurs resulted in the creating of the present Czech beer idol – “Pardál” beer, the perfect beer for sharp and full bitter flavoured beer lovers. The true beer for groups of friends who can label it : “It’s one of us!”

MarkoNm (2630) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 27, 2015
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a nice frothy white head, medium retention. Mild malty aroma with pronounced grassy notes. Sweet start, grassy/hoppy presence in the body and nice, refreshing and ejoyable bitterness in finish. Nothing spectacular, but nice and decent.

visionthing (5130) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 1, 2015
50cl bottle from a kiosk at the train station in Ceske Bud?jovice enjoyed at the train to Prague. Clear golden with a decent, white head. Rather grassy and somewhat herbal aroma with grainy notes. Moderate sweet and surprisingly grassy and herbal with a nice bitterness. Fairly light body with average carbonation, but surprisingly tasty and refreshing. A nice surprise for such a low alcohol content.

Zarkam (539) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2015
500ml bottle from supermarket near Brno. Clear gold colour, small mostly vanishing white head, little lacing. Moderately hoppy aroma of grass with light grains and white bread. Taste is initially mildly sweet with a hint of sourness, turning into a moderately bittersweet finish. Light to medium body, average carbonation, dryinsh mouthfeel. Fairly drinkable light lager, not exactly amazing but a really good lawnmower beer.
