In the pilsner/lager category, NOTHING beats a nice, cold, crisp classic Pilsner Urquel. The Czechs know how to make Pilsner better than anyone.

Drink a Pilsner Urquel and a Budweiser side by side. The contrast will be starker than you may presume.

Pilsner Urquel is very balanced, lightly hoppy (like a good Pilsner should be), mildly sweet, but with a crisp finish. It is not atringent, has no off-note flavors or odors like many lesser Pilsners are susceptible to.

It embarrasses most American Pilsners/Lagers.
