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.

50 cl. bottle. Served in Budvar stein. Golden; moderate head. Pleasantly hoppy, pleasantly malty, eminently drinkable. Supremely balanced.

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"

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.

Just one step behind Pilsner Urquell, but it is still one of my favorite beer. Light golden colour, tiny carbonated.

Eructoblaster (3888) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2004
Nice golden body with a diminishing bubbly head. Fresh hoppy nose with some floral and herbal notes. Mouthfeel is fairly carbonated and taste is hoppy with some discreet metallic hints. Decent bitter final. The real Budweiser is a very good pils but remains a step under the Pilsner Urquell.

Pours an apple juice like colour with a quickly disappearing white head. Nice straw aroma. This made a great refrsher after rugby practice. Great mouthfeel with good amount of carbonation nice hop bite on the end from the hops. A great thirst quencher.
