I don’t really know why so many people compare this to other swill import lagers like heineken, becks, etc. - this is a wonderfully spicy, floral, buttery pils - medium-bodied, yet really quaffable - just a great pilsner.

On tap at several restaurants in Vienna. This is an ultimate lager but it counts if you have it from a bottle or draught and if it was handled properly. One can say it is watery and not complex but as long as you need just a refreshing, cold, golden colored drink with a nice head the Budweiser is unbeatable.

just a bump up from a heineken. Good, but probably not worth the extra costs to import the stuff.

What can I say? A real pilsner, and the ORIGINAL Budweiser. The only reason its called Czechvar in the US, is because Anhauser-Bush threw a tantrum over the fact that people may confuse this true ’King Of Beers’ over their own mouthwash.

Gorgeous, hoppy, some great bitter depth to it.

Pours a pale golden color with a shallow spritzy froth. Aroma of crisp malt and some hay. Ultra light nectar with ample residual effers. Flavors are light, crisp, and clean with a slight skunkiness on the finish. I detected a little clove somewhere in there. Overall; mow the lawn and have a beer, you’ll never see me drinking this beer.

was my beer of choice in the czech republic. didn’t manage to get to the brewery unfortunately. tastier and more interesting than the pilsener urquel, refreshing and easy to down.

This is a fun beer. All of the hype isn’t what it deserves, but it is nonetheless a tasty brew.

I’d take Pilsner Urquell over it any day.

Bottled. Had a bottle of Czechvar and it instantly become one of my favorites, as this is one of my favorite styles of beer. Surprisingly I didn’t notice any skunk from the green bottle. I’d recommend this over Heineken, Grolsch or any other green bottled beer any day.

Even though this beer apparently has the kiss of death (Budweiser) it is pretty good for the style. Pale yellow appearance with a thick white head that is initially respectable but then dissapears leaving nothing but a very little "foam islands" floating around on the top of your beer. Grassy aroma, a little bread but I’m reaching here, and a bitter wheat/grass flavor. Dry finish, and I’m finished.

SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 24, 2006
Golden amber in color with a white head. Very sour hops type smell. Started off with a bitter taste of alcohol, but finished with a sweet malt taste. If US Bud tasted this good I would buy it more often!
