Keg (Hilpea Haukki, Helsinki)
Nice mahogany, small tight head. Pleasant sweet nutty woody aroma. Sweet mashy body, a little under-attenuated for my tastes. A little bit husky, but quite bland. Full palate, carbonation quite high though. Finish mashy, a little nutty and sweet. Unimpressed.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at the Brewpub in Slany Day 5 of Fergus and Sarah’s Czech jaunt. 3/10/14. Clear reddy / copper coloured pour, with a fleetinghalo of sticky cream head. Aroma is sweet biscuity and toasted malts, toffee, unrefined sugars. Flavour is composed of brown bread, toasted malts, light jammy fruits, rye spice and a touch of sweet toffe, but rounds out nicely. Palate is just beautiful, just melts in the mouth, slightly creamy, highish carbonation. Really tasty, very good balance.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Pours unclear amber in color with an off-white head. Hay, doughy yeasty and caramel notes in aroma. Malty notes, sweet hard toffee and some grassyness in taste. More of bitters and sort of green herbs mixed with a nice touch of maltyness in the end. Actually there’s quite lot of grainy notes here, which is okay. Well balanced and tasty.

3rd Oct 2014, 0.3 litre on-tap pour in Pivovarsky Klub, Prague: listed as Antos 13 Polotmavy Special, assume this is it.
Pours a deep amber, chestnut red with a creamy head. Aroma was caramel malty with a slight smokiness. Taste wise it was as the smell, caramel sweetness with a mild hint of smoke. The hops came late on and I thought the body was rich and deep.
