My favorite among the pilsners. I never tasted beer with such great nuance of hop flavor. I once compared it with other pilsner beers and Bud had much more golden dimly color than the other one. Overall 4.75/5

500ml can into nonic pint. canned on december 21, 2014. best before december 21, 2015. consumed on april 7, 2015. happy national beer day

a: transparent pale yellow with 3 fingers of slightly off-white head

s: sweet-smelling malty-crackery aroma with floral touches from the noble hops

t: follows the nose. crackers, grainy bread, mildly bitter floral hops, all enveloped by a honey-like sweetness

m: quite thin, with less-sharper-than-desired carbonation. would be nice if it had a drier finish too

o: the mouthfeel is a bit of a letdown, but otherwise this is a tasty pils

This beer was so good that a certain American Brewer stole its name. It is light, clean and crisp with light grain flavors. Straw gold, effervescent with a crisp hop accent.
