2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale yellow with an airy white head. Aroma from boiled vegetables and grass. Weak malty flavor and not much of a finish. I expect and want more from a czech beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Golden colour, thin, short lasting head; sweetish, slightly malty beginning, malt-accented taste, quite medium bodied, short, spicy and bitter aftertaste with a tinge of sweetness; the honey is extremely well hidden, nearly the same brew as the "Lezak" with a tinge of sweetness, but not , as expected, better rounded. Anyway: a good one.......

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale gold, gushed a bit, brief head. Sweet and slightly lemony aroma. Taste similar, but body filled out with some pleasant maltiness and a bit of honey. Still a bit lagery, but quite full flavoured. Bitter hoppy finish, a tad astringent. I can imagine some lager drinkers liking this, but it’s not my thing.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Clear golden colour with a thin white layer. Shy sweet malty aroma. Medium sweet malty taste with a rather dry hoppy finish, with a clear but low-key honey note on the palate. Medium bodied and crisp. An enjoyable brew.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slight (cold?) hazy deep gold; snow-white head, fast gone. Cocos, every so slight sourish tinge in the aroma - nothing uplifting. Taste - yes, here’s some honey, as the immediate initial flavour. Then some moments of more bitter, hoppy flavour, ending again dull-sweet. Palate is again more bitterish, but not anywhere noble hops-like. Bit of flavour as "honingbollen" - Belgian anti-cough sweets. Light MF - but also empty. Uninteresting beer, dull. Tastes like many’s the homebrew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
little 0,33l bottle, quite unusual for Czech beers to come in such small bottles. Amber coloured beer with medium-sized head. Traces of honey detectable. Underlinded by a hoppy dryness, very interesting beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mineral honey and mild herbal hops make for a rather unappealing aroma. Simple and somewhat childish in its direct and naive sweetness.
Fizzy effervescence through honeyed malts have never pleased me, and this isn’t an exception. That mineral character is still there, fading into a quiet dryness. Not much to say about this one I’m afraid, really not up to par to the 11 or 12 from this brewery.
Candy shops don’t appeal to me anymore.
