2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I had this at the Istanbul Restaurant in Trelleborg, Sweden. Is is available through Systembologet. It is a special order item. It is not in there catalog or on line. There is also a 1 case,(20 bottles), minimum order.
Pours a golden bronze with a large foamy head. The head eventually goes to a thick lace and will be there to the end. One of those heads that mark on the side of the glass after every swallow. Aroma is a bit hop and floral with a bit of sweet. Flavor is hop, bit of caramel and spice. Crisp. Finish is a light bitter hop and alcohol.
As far as a bottled Czech beer goes; it’s better than most. Overall it is just okay, nothing special. If you like Czech beer and have not tried it, I recommend you do so.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden coloured body with millions of bubbles rising from the bottom to a top of brilliant white. Aroma of fresh malt, light hops and a fruity scent. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong malt backbone with lighter fruit flavours dwindling over the top and a very mild floral hop finish. Aftertaste mild, but complex. Overall, a good beer - definitely worth trying if you are over here! I sampled this pint on draught at Ferdinanda in Praha, Czech Republic in March 2008.
