Budvar (500ml Bottle)
Benefitting from over 700 years of brewing experience of the South Bohemian region, Czech is the golden original, acknowledged by many connoisseurs as one of the best lagers in the world.
Pours with a clear golden hue, with frothy foam settling to form a medium head. Aroma is of mild hops and funkiness. Taste is smooth, clean and refreshing. A dry, dusty bubblegum flavour makes an appearance. Hops are present, but not dominant. Pale malt gives it a medium body with nice mouthfeel.
Hallmarked by the generous use of the Saaz hop, Bohemian (or Czech) pilsners are also noted for their rich gold colour, fat maltiness and moderate to full body. Regardless of origin, to be a pilsner a beer must have at least 28 units of bitterness, and preferably much more.
