COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Origin of name: the name is taken from the name of the star Kvasar. The inventor of this beer was Mr. Jiří Jelínek, who began brewing beer at home in his brewery in Sentice not far from Tišnov. Taste: this beer is characterized by its good head, golden yellow to golden brown color, and good vigor and fullness, which incite further drinking and corresponds to the characteristics of semi-fermented Czech beers. It is distinguished by its slightly sweet character due to its well-balanced bitterness and subtle honey flavor.

FatPhil (8996) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 3, 2008
330ml bottle.
Pale gold, gushed a bit, brief head. Sweet and slightly lemony aroma. Taste similar, but body filled out with some pleasant maltiness and a bit of honey. Still a bit lagery, but quite full flavoured. Bitter hoppy finish, a tad astringent. I can imagine some lager drinkers liking this, but it’s not my thing.

KnutAlbert (6013) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2008
On tap at the Czech Inn, Dublin. Very full flavour witht he honey evident, adding an extra dimension to the beer. Sweet, but not cloying. Medium body, very quaffable. There are hops in the background to balance the honey.

Glouglouburp (5938) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2008
In short: A basic honeyed lager with nothing else. Boring
How: Tap at Kralovstvi, Prague
The look: Clear golden blonde body with a medium white head.
In long: Hay and light honey. The whole seems tasted like a baklava-light. Very short finish. This one was seriously lacking hops in the finish to balance it off. Give it some noble hops and it could have made an ok pilsner but without the hops its finish was as disappointing as the one from The Sopranos Series.

TaktikMTL (5628) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2008
En fût. Pinte dégustée chez Kralovstvi (Prague, Rép. Tchèque). Arôme: Légère odeur de céréale avec une pointe de miel. Apparence: La couleur est blonde orangé. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréales avec une pointe de miel. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps et la texture sont mince. Faible effervescence en bouche. (Rating #1543)

0.5 l bottle. Golden color. Malty and honeyish aroma with some herbal-peppery hops. Sweet, malty, honeyish and cloying flavor with some peppery hoppiness as well as some vinous notes reminiscent of mead.
