Budweiser Budvar Imported Dark Lager ****

(4.7% Czech Republic from bottle) A dark lager is really the only way to enjoy a lager (Yeah, I said it) – this malty refreshing dark lager from Budweiser – the Czech brewery not that ‘other’ Bud – has a mocha head on pour on an opaque thick mahogany body, with sweet malt on nose and tongue. Still slight lager taste, but the over arching flavor is that of malts – four in this brew using Pale, Munich, Caramel and roasted malts. To quote from the bottle, “a lager with an inimitable flavour straight from the heart of darkness”.  Yeah, sweet Joseph Conrad reference.  The horror, the horror will not be had on this gem.  Rare dark lager on the UK shelves, so buy it up.
