blond with a quickly disappearing head. Flowery hoppy aroma and taste. Light bitter taste and finish. Ok, but nothing special.

Expected gold clear colour, with small short lasting head. Mild stale hops with hint of malt aroma. Light watery body. I simply can't see why this rates so highly, maybe the BMC crowd gets it confused with the other bud. Just an average pils in my book.

Decent nose for a pilsener. Malts and hops, quite fresh. Not really skunky. Clear golden coloured, not much head. Malty taste, some hops. Bitter, fresh palate. Okay.

With an abundance of grass and sugar syrup on the nose, Chechvar offers hope that it will be a touch more palatable than its erstwhile namesake. Nothing doing. There’s an initial splash of refreshment when it hits the tongue, but it’s like jumping in the shallow end of the pool feet-first. The initial pleasing spike of bitterness quickly subsides, leaving a woody aftertaste. There’s "var" better beers from the Czech Republic than this.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2004 Golden yellow/pale green tinges. Has a clean and crisp hopped aroma. Great saaz hops taste, with a medium body that provides a ton of pure lagered beer flavor. Even hints towards some bittersweet tones. Heavily carbonated and, true to the style, starts to taste a bit meaty and grainy as it warms. However this, when you drink it cold, its about as good a lager as they come.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2007 This is a world class Bohemian lager. Excellent malt, great bitterness, Saaz on the nose. Very much like Pilsner Urquell but nowhere as easily available.

A buddy was nice enough to bring a 16 ounce can back from Austria for me. Interesting aroma, thin head, golden color, and smooth taste.
