4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2003 Overall, this is a very impressive Pilser. I used to think Urquell was the benchmark among this class, but I was pleasantly surprised to find this one.

Sorry, I just dont get it. this is a good pilsner but as a whole it ranks merely average in my book. Hopp nose bitter finish with a hint of sweet malt in taste. Light bodied. White big mostly lasting head. Fizzy

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.

Golden colour. Small white head. Sweet and herbal aroma. Taste is sweet/fruity and finishes herbal-bitter. Above medium body.

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.
