Bottle Czechvar at Beer Sellar in KY. Pours a clear amber with a moderate white head that diminished slowly. Heavy grass hoppy aroma. Medium body. Good complex hoppy flavor with medium bitter finish of average duration. Very interesting brew.

Best before 9/2005. Oh well. Clear golden body with a puffy head. Grassy hops in the aroma and flavor. Nice smooth beer, but not much here.

That’s good beer, shame it has to share its name with t’other budweiser, this is actually beer flavour. Golden colour, not yellow like most lager, very nice taste, go out and try it. (A-B was actually using the name budweiser about 20 years before these, but this is actually from budweis(budjovice))

Bottle: Poured a golden color pils with a huge foamy head with limited retention. Aroma of grass and floral malt. Taste also include the grass and floral malt and as well as crisp hops thought I was expecting more hops. Body is fuller then expected. Very enjoyable though it seems I could feel that the bottle had travelled a couple thousand miles.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2005 This Czech brew that has been called "Budweiser" throughout Europe since the 13th century, but must be called "Czechvar" in the U.S., due to pressure from its richer (but blander) cousin from St. Louis. Golden pour with a quickly vanishing head. Very good Pilsner. Slightly bitter with wonderful hoppyness to it. This is damn good. Budweiser by Anheiser pails in comparison

As with all Pilseners and other light lagers, one must be careful to assure that the beer is reasonably fresh. Off lavors don’t have much to hide behind. I had my first Budvar in the airport in Frankfurt a number of years ago., and have had it numerous times since. At it’s best, which is how I’m rating it, it is a premier example of what a Pilsener should be. Beautiful clear golden color with a medium white head. Floral hop aroma followed by a light malty feel with some substance. Refreshing astringent light bitterness in the finish . I would love to try it on draft in the Czech Republic.

Sampled this fine nectar from the gods 7/10/05. Pleasant aroma but not over powering. The golden colour looks very enticing. This crisp easy drinking drop dosent leave you dissappointed. A bit dry afterwards, but still go back for more.

Agree with most, this is thin and dry. Mine purchased in Canada had a different label without Budweiser branding. Simply labelled ’Czechvar’ in same design as sample here. Cheap price, I got what I paid for.

Bottle. Pours a pale golden with a whispy white head. Heavily carbonated. Light sweet aroma. Taste is crisp and dry, with a little sweetness. Slightly bitter aftertaste. MUCH better than its American namesake.
