ElDesmadre (2335) - Mikołów, POLAND - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle. Golden with a rocky yet quickly dissipating head. Aroma is sweetish, grainy-malty with apples and herbal hoppy with some tobacco. Solid malty body that is unfortunately too sweet. The hops are there together with a herbal aftertaste but the bitterness is not strong enough to balance the sweetness.

3fourths (8701) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2011
draft at ferdinanda, prague. clear gold, fine white head. smoother than the 11, and nicely round and frothy, but still a bit too much of this corn, metal and chemical twang wrapped around the honey / biscuit malt. low acid, low bitterness, mild sweetness. okay but doesn’t come close to what czech svetly can be.

mattphilips (802) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 11, 2011
IV, Cseh sörnapok, Budapest, üveges kiszerelés. Tükrös arany szín benne, nagy buborékokban és gyorsan leomló laza fehér hab. Illata malátás és lagymatag élesztő érződik. Íze malátás, élesztős, de a komló valahogy nincs olyan jól eltalálva, van valami főtt almás jellege a lecsengésének. Száraz, közepes testtel rendelkezik. Nem jött be túlzottan, de végül is meg lehet inni.

peterclash (43) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2011
Pours nearly no head, the body is very light yellow. No much taste at all actually. Light bitter. Typical rusty lager aftertaste. Bad palate, watery and rusty.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2011
UPDATED: APR 7, 2011 Flat out bitter beer and I love it. Very fresh (mid-June 2011). Aroma is a more subtle flower/pepper/hers variety but the flavor is intensely bitter. Not so much bread, not such a huge body, a giganticaly grassy bitter flavor playground in your mouth. Good head and body, not so big, oily. From Piwoteka.
