Brewed and bottled by: Budejovicky Budvar, Czech Republic
How they bill it: “Our premium pale lager is beer for real connoisseurs. The first-class female cones of top-quality Saaz hops, pure clean natural water from 300-metre deep artesian wells and carefully selected grains of a unique cultivar of Moravian barely make the premium lager a drink for real beer experts.”
My take: Instantly invigorating with a hint of discipline. Like those crazy dudes who swim in winter. Feels like you've just broken the ice and dived in. Refreshed, proud of yourself, feeling invincible … and ready to get back to work and do your duty. Drink with beef goulash and the sounds of Please The Trees.
