A remarkable beer. Tried it on draft three or four times; later bought some plastic bottles of it at the brewery to lug home as perishable souvenirs. Grateful to Evan for the recommendation. Just as tasty and compelling from the bottles (fresh) as from the tap. Hazy dark gold color in any case, pillowy head if the pour is done properly. This is a "traditional" pale lager done with oomph, showcasing bright, herbal hop aroma that shares billing with mild, sack-fresh malt and only faint whiffs of diacetyl; juicy-herbal hop flavor, mild honey-malt taste, and a firm bitterness which lingers just long enough... that increasingly short gap between gulps. It is as bitter and as aromatic as many IPAs but probably more drinkable than any of them. This is a regular beer that tastes like beer but with the beer flavor cranked up to, er, 12(°).

Turtles (501) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2015
On Tap @ Pivovarský Klub, Prague. Great looking! Almost clear golden, rich creamy white Head, long lasting, small bubbles dancing around in the glass. Aroma; wheat, grass, biscuits, orange, citrus zest. Medium carbonated with a fizzy and smooth mouthfeel. Great taste of citrus, pear, grass sweet and fruity hops with some sweet malty taste going on in the background. Got some bitterness in the finish.

Roublard (215) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 8, 2013
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.

Keg at Pivovarský Klub in Prague Day 5 of Fergus and Sarah’s Czech jaunt. 3/10/14. Unfiltered. Hazed yellow / golden coloured pour with a lasting white froth. Aroma is spicy hop, pollen, honey malts. Really good. Flavour is composed of honey malts, semi sweet, pollen / floral hop with a little spicy, little crisp citrus edge. Very drinkable. Palate is crisp and grainy, semi-sweet, highish carbonation. Lingering nutty and citrus. Uber drinkable.

motelpogo (7239) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 3, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2014 on tap at the festival mikropivovaru at prague castle. one of the first appearances of brevnov beer and perhaps it still needs a bit of fine tuning. anyways, a dark golden with a lasting fluffy head; loads of butterscotch in the aroma; quite sweet and sticky with a definite lack of saaz in both aroma and bitterness; ends cloying though the malt character is not unpleasant. perhaps would suit some of those people who complain about czech beer being too bitter. re-rate: 2014 festival minipivovaru at prague castle - i have to admit evan rail was right that this is way better now - bursting with saaz, loads of bitterness, fresh, buttery texture; great stuff
