2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Ah, the real Budweiser. Of course, I'm in the US, so it's Czechvar. Golden body with a head of large bubbles that disappears quickly. Nice pilsner aroma that fills the room upon opening the bottle. Nice balanced taste, but no finish. Better then the other Budweiser, but what isn't?

Bright gold with a firm, white head. Nose is bready, a bit flowery. Hoppy bite, well-carbonated and a bit soft in the palate.

For a lager, I really enjoyed this. Good bitter and slightly sour taste. Round malty mouthfeel. I would choose this over our "budweiser."

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear pale yellow-golden in color with a decent white fluffy head that leaves a nice lacing in the glass, fresh grassy hop aromas, nice clean light bready and spicy flavors, light bodied with a crisp mouthfeel, finishes dry and crisp with plenty of carbonation, a decent example of the style.

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

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
