Quest For Beer Episode 23: Budvar Budejovicky

I'm a little concerned; this label looks a lot like Budweiser. It's a pale Eurolager.

Budvar Budejovicky

Opening the bottle causes a lot of fizz. The lager foams into the neck. I like to think I know how to pour a beer, but this one foamed up to a huge fluffy head which faded fairly fast.

First sip. Bland. Mild amounts of malt that almost tastes grainy, but no hops. No wait... there it is! It just takes a while to build on the back of the tongue.

Mouthfeel: A little watery and and very fizzy and...

You know what? I don't like it. I don't know if it's the over-all blandness, or the gradually building hops, or the malt that tastes like grain. I am not quite half-way down the glass and I am considering dumping the rest. It's not even refreshing and I'm actually getting thirstier by drinking it.

Same again, sir? No! Bring me an orange juice and bitter lemon. I need to wash this away.
