3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden color with a thin, diminishing white head. Strong aroma of malt with citrus and hops notes. Very good toasty, grainy malt flavor with subtle hops and a slightly bitter finish. Light to medium body, soft carbonation. While not up to the standards of Urquell and Na Zdravi, Czechvar is very good nonetheless, I like its malt flavor a lot.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crystal clear golden color with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Sweet malt and hop aroma. Slightly sweet malt flavor that has a nice hoppy
bitterness to it. A little thin on the palate
but overall a solid pilsener.

I cannot get enough of this one, nice bitterish taste, not too bubbly. A beer that tastes like the beers tasted let’s say hindred years ago. A true original among the beers. LOVE IT!

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2013 Draught. A gold/urine coloured lager with an oversweet taste. The aroma is quite hoppy and sticky but again too sweet. Its reputation is better than its delivery.Score 2.4
Subsequent ratings scored 3.4, 2.7 and 3.4. Average becomes 3.0

12 oz bottle: Pours a golen yellow with a small white head. A very crisp spicy taste. Second only to pilsner urquell.

(Bottle) It shows a beautiful golden colour, surely darker than other average pilsner. Aroma is hoppy, flowery, with a note of sweet malt. Taste is light malty, light honey flavor. A bit empty, less malty and hoppy than in the past, but still a good "everyday" beer.

My favorite beer of all time. After living in Prague for a while, it became necessary to make a pilgrimage to Ceske Budejovice, where it’s brewed. We missed the tour but got to have some of the freshest, best-tasting beer I’ve ever had. Crisp, refreshing, purely enjoyable. ’Czechvar’ is available in the US, and it just doesn’t seem the same. Next time you’re in central Europe, though, seek out the Budejovicky Budvar: guaranteed to make you think twice about all those Belgian beers you’ve been paying extra money for back home.

This is one of the best beers I have ever had. From the 16oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Incredible mouthfeel, almost buttery if this is the proper adjective. Smooth so smooth but not bland at all, great european Pilsner flavor, and hop aroma. Wonderful beer. Big American lager makers should hang their heads in shame.

Considering I had this at a crappy sports bar in a college town and it was probably about six months old, this was still the best pils I’ve ever had. Now if I could only find it on stores...
