Senk. Tapped. Unusually for such style amber color with very stable foam, a bit cloudy. But the nose is very interesting - a rich aroma of hops and molts with some herbs and even wheat. Taste is malty enough, not very bitter, medium body with a bit bitter finish very all hops are resolved.

1-liters plastflaske, delt med Ovesen tre timer etter ankomst fra Tsjekkia: slik kan altsĺ en pilsner smake! Frisk, ufiltrert og fersk, med mye behagelig appelsinpreget bitterhet og rik munnfylde. Litt honningsřdme i avslutningen. Eminent drikkbar uten at jordrotasjonen slĺr inn.

Bottle shared by Ryan. Thanks! Slightly hazed golden pour with a white head. Has kind of a rubbery nose. Sweet bread, apple, and straw. Lightly floral. The flavor is missing the rubber, but is lackluster overall. Bread, straw, yeast, and apple. Hints of floral hops on the finish with a light bitterness.

1L PET bottle thanks to mowbeer! Pours a low haze golden with healthy white foam. Nose is really nice, certainly different from its peers, with fresh pineapple, passionfruit, cactus juice, then the usual suspects of caramel and mild diacetyl that seems to be the norm for Czech lagers surprisingly. Taste is grassy, tropical hops with pineapple juice. Long, bitter finish. Pretty boss all around.
