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.
