Label stamped: Best Before 11-01-2018/B1. Pleasant lager aroma, a little faint; bready and a bit of herbal hops. 1/2 inch white head fades quickly, stringy lacing. Bright gold/amber with small carb bubbles. Bready malts with moderate bittering and herbal taste from this hops in the middle and finish. Easy drinking and refreshing, with a bit of mineral giving it a clean finish. Mild taste; could be more assertive.

Wasn't sure what to expect from this lager, billed as "one of the world's best." Unfortunately it was a little disappointing. Tasted very similar to many other European lagers, slightly heavy on the metallic taste with strong notes of malt and biscuit. Smooth finish without much lingering mouthfeel. Easy to drink and only vaguely bitter.

Poured into an pint glass, the head faded away fast, there is no lacing left on the glass. This is just an average Euro Lager.

500ml bottle served in a large snifter. Brought to me by a friend after a trip to Poland. Najlepiej Spozyc Przed: 08 10 2018.

Pours a clear golden with a smallish creamy head. Smell is skunky lager.

Taste is sour, bitter, lager. Lemon. Yeast.

Mouthfeel is very dry, very light, and very effervescent. Overall...about what I was expecting. It's not bad.

Had this many times over the years, I have tended to prefer it to Pilsner Urquell for its dryness.

Pours gold, nice head.

metallic, herbal saaz flavour

thinn-ish mouthfeel, nice carb. Drying finish, little bitterness.

Just a very good beer, but for my tastes now I'd like a fair bit more bitternesss and more saaziness :)

Almost as good as pilsner Urquell. It tastes like your typical euro pilsner or lager just a little dialed down in the taste & aroma. Now this is what a real Budweiser should taste like. Cheers! B (85-89) score range
