"Hate to come back but in a friendly way, pilsiner and beer are two different kinds of drink. Beer is bitter. Pilsiner a little sweeter but both are good. So i think that VB being bitter is beer and Crown lager and pilsner are a different brew altogether. We would have to ask a beer taster if we run into one one day. Now, that would be good providing we had somewhere to stay the night in case a session developed. Yum.! "
