Douberd (3302) - Arnhem, - JAN 28, 2013
500 ml bottle, bought in Germany under the name Breznak Original Bohmisch Pils. Poured into a footed pilsner glass. Colour is very deep yellow-golden, with something more of two fingers of foam. White and soapy, with very good retention and heavy lacing left on the glass. A constant stream of bubbles is rising to the surface. Aroma is quite hoppy, but not as much as I would expect from a Czechish pilsner. Some light malt aroma too, along with adjuncts. Rice, maybe? Nice bitter taste. Unfortunately, very metallic at first, along with this adjunct flavour, but it gets much better on the aftertaste where the hops really shine, with a long finish as well. Medium thickness on the body, very dry on the palate and just the right amount of carbonation. I really liked this one, very good.

Bottle from Trinkgut in Goch. The beer is golden colored and has a stable small white head, with average carbonation. The aroma is malty and grainy, with some nice hop notes and a little sweetness of caramel in the background. Taste is malty and medium bodied, with some light bitterness. Finish is light bitter and refreshing. Good pilsner, nothing else to say.

Fľaša 500 ml z moravského supermarketu. Zlatá farba, vysoká biela bublinková pena, príjemná chmeľová aróma. Stredná rezkosť, horkosť prítomná od začiatku až do konca, sladový záver. Obstojný ležiak..

bartholos (106) - GERMANY - AUG 2, 2015
Bottle. Dark-golden with a turn to orange, clear with a with medium rocky head. Floral aroma as well as some spices, malty and grainy notes along with some sweet notes of toffee. There are also hints of fruits, berries and for some reason the the aroma has some citrus-lemon that reminds me of Sprite. Anyhow, good bitter well hopped taste with a balancing light sweet start. The body is light to medium with high carbonation and a sparkling mouthfeel. The flavor seems to be outbalanced by the focus on bitterness and the body does not do much to contain any of the aroma from the nose for the mouth. It leaves, however, a nice bitter medium long and medium strong aftertaste.

Golden colour with minimal head and average lacing. Malt aroma.Malty taste. Bitter finish . I guess what I like the most is that classy label with that naughty overweight Lenin doppelgänger.

mateuszk (1045) - Poznań, POLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle. Clear and golden with white head. Aroma of malt with almost no hop presence. In taste similar, beer is rather sweet with low bitter finish. Ordinary pils, nothing to remember here.
