Czechvar. This was a gift from a friend. I drank it in a pilsner glass. Best before May 2006 on the label.
Pours a mostly clear gold with tiny little floaters visible, which I don't really care about. A one finger head of white foam forms on top, falls to islands and a ring, with scant lacing. Carbonation appears slow.
Aroma is very bready malt and nice spicy/grassy hops. This smells like one good pilsner.
Flavor is bready malt, a little on the sweet side, with a nice grassy hop taste. Bitterness is low to medium. This is slightly sweeter than I imagined. Sweet malt dominates, with hop flavor a close second. A fairly well made beer. Aftertaste is sweet, malty, and slightly spicy.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a perfect level of carbonation. Residual sweetness seems a little high. Finish is short and sweet.
This is a good, clean, Czech pilsner. I am a little surprised by the sweetness, but the spicy hop character is there, and makes this a very quaffable brew. I would definitely have this again.
