COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Prémiový tmavý ležák doplňuje tradiční nabídku piva z pivovaru Budějovický Budvar, n. p. od roku 2004. Je vyroben stejným postupem jako originální světlý ležák, za použití nejvybranějšího žateckého chmele, moravského sladu, vody čerpané ze 300 m hlubokých artéských studní a tří druhů speciálních barevných ječných sladů: mnichovského, karamelového a praženého.

Charakterizuje jej výrazně tmavá barva, suchá, jemně hořká karamelová chuť bez dominance sladkosti. Vůně je delikátní po praženém sladu.

hens (736) - Tallinn, Estonia, - DEC 20, 2012
0.5L bottle. Usual caramel hop aroma, very delicate smoke shines. Taste is sour smoked and cooked vegetables with little caramel. Finish is stupid bitter herbs water. Waterly finish spoils it all. Nothing special.

LazyPyro (331) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2016
500ml bottle. Very dark brown pour with a creamy smooth two finger tan head. Aroma is very smoky, with sweet fruity malts. Taste is again very smoky, roasted malt, caramel, bit of coffee maybe. Leaves a smoky aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel. Too much smokiness for my liking but otherwise good.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is roasted malt, caramel, yeast, grain, and a bit of chocolate. Easy to drink. On the sweet side.

Dark ruby, almost black pour with medim beige head. Smell is mostly roasted malts and smoke. Medium body with subtle carbonation. Texture is between watery and oily. Bittersweet taste.

Demens (111) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 1, 2016
0,5l can. Dark brown colour with medium lasting brown head. Aroma: caramel, light coffee. Taste: sweet malty start with sour pale lager caracters. Hiding light bitterness. Quite watery. Light body with lively carbonation. Watery average finish. Maybe the bottled version is better.

Bottle bought in BC Liquor store. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is dark fruits, hops, roasted malt, notes of chocolate. Body is very light (like it should be). In the taste: roasted malt, caramel, dark bread, notes of dark fruits and roasted coffee. Burnt malt bitterness aftertaste. Very good, classic Czech lezak.

sawyerpc15 (28) - Bowser, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2016
Found in a different label with the Czechvar Dark predominant. A dark lager that was smooth. Nothing outstanding but I found it enjoyable. Looked like a stout but the head didn’t stay around long.
