2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 This one pours a sparkling gold with a very small, quickly deminishing head. The nose is sweet and pretty much standard for the type. Taste is lightly acidic, moderately sweet with hints of bananas, and a bit dry in the end. The bitterness is upfront and not in the end so much. It’s very balanced overall. The palate is actually diverse and subtle once the initial sweetness clears. A very good beer in its style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden coloured body with a medium sized white head. Not much head retention and very little lacing. Doughy characters in the aroma as well as some dried fruit and some yeast. Light body in the taste, some sweetness and then some metallic bitterness, other tastes there were, cheese, cardboard and some hop oil. Average finish with a dry texture.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful golden beer supporting a creamy white head. Nice nose of clean hops and malt. Smooth slightly sweet with a nice bitter finish. I haven’t had as many samples of this as i have had of Pils Urquell, but this probably should get sampled multiple times as well.

Something like what American brewers had in mind when they still had minds. A good Czech Pilsener with an initially slightly sweet taste evolving to hops dry. Forms a thick head at the pour that dissipates leaving light and delicate lace on the sides of your glass.

4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Nice hop aroma and pours a very clear golden color, nice white head, the flavor was crsip, clean, balaned and very smooth, nice Saaz bitterness. Move over Urquell there’s a new kid in town!
Stands shoulder to shoulder with Pilsner Urquell. AB should take notes on how to brew a truly outstanding tasting beer! Czechvar IS the true "King of Beers"

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Green bottle, BBD 180804: I was expecting this to be skunked, but it was quite fine, slightly aromaic hopping with a little doughiness; clean, balanced sweetness with a metallic tinge and nice, quick bitterness; very smooth; better than expected.
