1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
on tap at slunce ve skle 2008. light golden with a thin persistent head; disturbing aroma of used gym sock; nasty metho tang; a complete mess with a rancid aftertaste; i’d hesitate to rate an apparently okay beer in such bad shape as this normally, but since this was served to me by the brewer i don’t feel as though i’m being unfair

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(tap at brewpub) A light amber beer, its quite clear and has a nice, thick foam.Good aroma with some butterscotch. The taste is a bit sweet and malty with some bitterness. It has a nice palate but needs a more distinct aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewpub.
Light hazy golden coloured, medium sized white head that went away slowly, pleasant hoppy and mild buttery nose. Malty, bitter hoppy and light spicy taste with notes of herbs. Bitter finish and long lasting hoppy aftertaste. Is this ESL... I don’t think so. First, and how later turned out, the best of eight beers I’ve tried in Prague on my recent visit.
