2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a big frothy head that diminishes slowly. Worty, grainy orange aroma. Grainy, malty somewhat hopbitter flavor. Medium bodied with just a hint of orange and glue. Decent lager, but not an entirely clean palate.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Common Eastern European Lager - nothing offensive here - nothing to get too excited about.
Wet cardboard aroma, slight, quickly dissipating head. Bubbles last throughout and add a nice contrast to the pleasant light golden pale appearance. Flavor - detect a bit of hops - peppery aftertaste - slightly dry on the palate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A pretty good pilslager. Moderate malty nose with bready character. Pale gold brew, webby white head, good homebrew bottle (that wierd grey-brown, not green as pictured currently,) so-so label. Above average mouthfeel, longish finish. Well-balanced enough to be almost indistinct. Pretty smooth drinking.

Bottled. Straw gold, moderate head and low condition. Cloying fruity nose, some solvent in the mouth and a soft fruity finish. Not pleasant.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A slightly hazy yellow beer with a fine head. The aroma is slightly perfumed with notes of malt and even the brewmash. The taste is very hoppy from the begining almost like a czech beer - but then it becomes a little watery - and the bitterness doesn't linger that long. It is not that sweet - but has a great balance and is a very pleasant beer to drink. Really good for a pilsener.
