Czechvar, I had a hard time finding this on this site. Czechvar is a light lager with a thick thick head and golden yellow colour. The bouquet is pronounced with a hoppy aroma. It reminded me of Pilsner Urquell. This beer must have just made it into Florida because I just found it. I would buy it and drink it again.

A light hoppy aroma. A frothy head, but it disappeared almost immediately. Too much carbonation with a light body. Maybe the bartender had a bad day...

Interesting that the American Budweiser has had approximately 3.4 times the number of ratings as the Czech version, because the the Czech version is about that many times better than the American version. Strong lager aroma. Clear sparkling gold in appearance. Smallish, white, foamy head. Flavor is crisp and doughy with mild hoppiness which makes this beer. The finish is a little off, but the beer's name automatically invites comparisons to Bud and it will always stack up favorably. Quite good.

Another clasic style pilsner. This version is by far superior on taste and quality than the comerical version. Has a nice clean flavor to it and is very enjoyable to drink.

Not the best Czech beer, but that is not a complaint. This is famous by comparison to its infamous cousin. Clean flavour with plenty of malt and hop subtleties.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2003 Draught. Clear golden color, creamy head. Nice malty aroma.Fruity and fresh. Long duration. Maybe a little too much carbonation. Indeed drinkable!

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2011 Agreeable earthy, spicy hops, draping lightly toasted pils malts... More effervescent than the average BohPils, this needs to be tasted super fresh, or else it gets boring really quickly... On tap at various places in the Czech Republic, it is quite good, but a fresh can can do the job efficiently...

UPDATED: APR 6, 2003 Great beer that is as good as many German Pilsners. While not my favorite style it is crisp and refreshing. The other Bud is so inferior, this is the one to drink.

Pours a beautiful clear, bright golden colour with a strong white head. Bready malt and fruity hops in the aroma. Flavour is crisp and refreshing with a perfect balance of malt and hops.
