I've been watching and waiting for my local liquor warehouse to start carrying this brew, and they finally got 6 cases on May 10. They were already down to 2 cases when I got there after work. I obviously got a very fresh sample. First observation: this ain't a Pilsener, it's a Budweiser; i.e., it's from Budweis, not Pilsen. Budweisers are maltier than Pilseners. Anyway, this is an incredibly drinkable beer. Pure light golden color, nice carbonation, medium-sized white head with decent retention for a lager. Very, very balanced in the nose and the palate - definitely more malty than a Pilsener, but hops are still evident. One criticism: I wish they could have stuck with Budweiser Budvar's brown glass bottle instead of going to green a la Pilsener Urquell. I know I got a fresh batch this time, but what about the future? In sum, it's easy to see why this is a very popular beer on the worldwide scene - I could drink an awful lot of these in a sitting.
