Tonight was Czechvar lager, served quite cool (having been in our fridge all day) in a skinny glass with veggie kielbasa sausages in nice sesame buns.

The beer is golden-coloured, with fine bubbles and a modest head. It is middling-hoppy, aromatic and I could taste gentle notes of grain, which makes for a very nice, unassuming and very beer-like beer — but not so unassuming as to be dull. I found it very similar to Steam Whistle (not surprisingly, given that Steam Whistle is a Czech-inspired beer from Toronto) and equally good. I definitely liked it better than Švyturys.

Alas, after tasting, I found out the brewery was assimilated into the Budweiser borg (bullies!), but the beer doesn't taste like they've had much influence over the recipe.


Also: Tony Clement, this song is for you.
