Budweiser Czechvar

CIMG6458

Not THAT Budweiser. This one is brewed in the city of Budweis in the Czech Republic. Some may know this beer as the Budweiser Budvar, but in North American, it’s marketed as Czechvar. I’m sure you can figure out why that is. It’s actually kind of funny considering that American Budweiser is actually named after this beer and the other regional examples that Adolphus Busch was trying to create here.

Stats:
Czech Pilsner. 5.0% ABV. Czech Republic.

Golden color with a fluffy, loose lacing head.

Smells slightly skunked, but it does fade after a bit. You also get some grain and honey with just a hint of black pepper.

Mouthfeel is actually medium bodied, not nearly as thin as I was expecting.

Honey, biscuit, grain, hint of spice. Got a nice little hop presence on the back and finishes with a slightly sweet grainy component.

Some may scoff at this beer, but it’s actually a pretty tasty European lager. 85 points.
