3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
My Bottom Line:
Honeyed maltiness is lightly dusted with doughy yeast throughout in this calm and comfortably nourishing Svetlé Vycepni.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-The usual Czech tower of foam tops the hazy straw blond.
-A citrusy hop character is subtle, but pleasant as it also provides some bitterness.
-The body is soothingly healthy for a vycepni.
-This was a firm and quenching pint for the style, one which made the filtered 12-degree appear forgettable this time around.
On tap at Kralovstvi, Praha.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Hazy, pale golden colour with a short frothy white head. Dusty, slightly sweet and grainy malty nose with a touch of citrus and spicy herbal hops. Sweet-bitter flavour, light bodied with a slightly fizzy carbonation. Yeasty and malty, slightly citrus-fruity taste with a drying-out effect towards the finish which is moderately bitter and herbal hoppy. Average Bohemian Zwickel.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draught at the Pianeta Birra, Rimini, Italy.
As Černá Hora Moravske Sklepní
Hazy pale golden coloured, almost no head, skunky plastic nose. Malty, and slight hoppy with notes of lemon and something strange that tastes like rubber shoe sole (maybe because it was from plastic cup). Aggressively bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught in Černáhorsky Sklep, Brno. An unfiltered 10 degree lager which is a lot better than the filtered Tas. Hazy and goldem, with a honeyed hop nose; very inviting. Dryish and malty on the palate with a lot of subtle flavours which must be lost by pasteurisation - hops, citrus, bready malt. Complex, slightly bitter and hoppy finish. Very drinkable and refreshing.
