Since the breakup of Czechoslovakia, the Slovak Republic has often taken a back seat to its former partner, the Czech Republic. Hockey, industry, and now, I see, beer. However, Saris isn't too bad. Many of you will find it to be very close in taste to Beck's, a pilsner-style lager with a light hoppiness, and a refreshing taste. Such beers often have a shelf-life that you need to stick to, and this was about 2 months past its prime, but still quite drinkable. Not to the caliber of the better Czech beers, but worth a try.
