Budweiser Budvar Brewery received a bronze medal in category 32: “Bohemian-Style Pilsener” for its 11° Pardál Echt Pale Lager. A total of 53 samples had registered in this category. Pardál Echt was launched on the market in 2009. It is characterised by a full flavour, distinct bitterness and pleasant hop aroma. Hundreds of Czech beer connoisseurs, who participated at its birth, endowed the beer with robust strength and vigour.
Pardál Echt basic parameters:
Gravity: 11.3 %
Bitterness: higher (33 MJH)
Colour: rich amber (15 EBC)
Tang: medium–4.9 g CO2 / litre - makes the beer very easy to consume
Good-quality ingredients: 3 types of Moravian malt, Saaz area hops (no hop extracts), water from artesian wells
“Personally, I consider the World Beer Cup the most prestigious beer competition in the world. We are, of course, very pleased that Pardál Echt withstood the incredibly difficult competition,” says Budweiser Budvar’s brewmaster Adam Brož, Ph.D., who personally received the award in Denver.
