The aroma is simple but pleasant enough—some spicy, earthy hops and cookie sweetness. The body is a brilliantly clear amber with a dense, off-white head. The flavor has some of that subtle cookie sweetness along with a fair amount of tart bitterness and a touch of popcorn butter, especially as it warms up. The carbonation is moderate, and the body is light but fuller than a basic lager; smooth with a crisp bite.

Tasty and refreshing, albeit rather simple on the whole. There are at least no unwelcome aspects.

Labeled as 'Czechvar

Crystal clear gold color with lots of fine, slowly rising carbonation and a thick, creamy, white head (3.75). Grass and straw aroma with a bit of grain (3.5). Bright and grainy flavor with a bold bitterness underneath it all; a bit metallic and acidic (3.6). Medium bodied; crisp and dry finish (3.5).

It sure would be nice to have a fresh version of this beer. My sample is fair enough but one has no idea how it has traveled let alone when it was brewed and bottled. Still, it retains a noble hops smell and taste and actually leaves a slight warm bread grain flavor which is quite tasty. Drinkable and preferable to an American Budweiser.

Poured from can. Aroma is grassy hay. Very clear golden color with white head. Light bitter taste. Light bodied, with lively carbonation, and a dry finish. Overall a nice crisp lager.
