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.

Pale gold with a vanishingly brief head.
Aroma of vegetal, grassy hops and doughy pale malt.
Crisp, off-dry and slightly tart, with brisk grassy noble hops over a soft crackery pils malt base. Clean, simple, and refreshing, with no flaws. Very slight hint of sulfur in the background.
Feather-light and almost watery, emphasis here is on drinkability.
Overall, a fine quaffable pilsner. Apparently over-hyped, perhaps owing to its name conflict with the fizzy American swill, but leaving all that aside it's still a quite nice pale lager in its own right.
