No 32-33 Budweiser and Budvar Svetlý Lezák

Tasted these two summer refreshers in snowy november... They both have a long heritage - the Budweiser was first brewed in 1876 and the czech version began its life in 1895.

The nose of the american version is very light but fresh and there is some notes of hay/grass and soft hop notes. Light and pure and harmless.
The taste makes one think of that Monty Python qoute "fucking close to water" - it is pure, fresh and well made but it doesn´t taste anything! For drinking on a very hot day when there is no water...
76p   (tasted from bottle - 2010/11)

The czech variant is much better on the nose with nice notes of lemon and grape fruitpaired with freshly cut grass. Light but nice, and has character, compared to its american friend.
The taste is fine, cool and fresh with fine bitterness and a long, lingering, light finish. A much better beer to drench your thirst with.

85p   (tasted from bottle - 2010/11)
