transparent golden colour, few head, deep dry herbal aroma, tart, clean with a short herbal finish - good pilsner but average beer

Hey, give this beer a break. Budvar is such an AMAZING brew in Europe. Czechvar, though pastuerized, is by far one of the top lagers imported in the states. Plus... PLUS - they have been fighting the AB people and WINNING! Bravo!

I love this stuff. It’s especially good in Europe on tap.

Finally we can taste what Budweisar (budvar) is supposed to be! Not as good as Urquell but a great Pilsner. Crisp hoppy aftertaste, a pleasure to drink.

Gooner (136) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2002
World class beer. Well balanced between the malts and hops. No aftertaste, very crisp. Fails to be good all the time. When it’s good, I’d give it a 4.5 rating.

Very nice pilsner. Beats the ’king of beers’ hands down. Nice balance of hops and body. Very smooth and drinkable.

It’s been a while since I had this fresh, in Germany, but oh boy was it good. This is a lot like pilsener Urquell, but sweeter/maltier. I’m anxious to try it now that it will be here in the USA.

Not a bad lager. I’m not that big on lagers though. Its an assload better than its namesake.

I finally found a six pack and tried it. It is another fine Czech pils, but just like Urquell it dose not seem to travel well. I guess I will just have to go to the Czech Republic some day to get a real taste.

This beer did not live up to expectations. However, as others here have said before it certainly beats the other Bud without contest.
