3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at GBBF 08. 5.1% ABV Bernard Unfiltered Svetly Pivo. Hazy gold, lasting beige head. I probably expected this to be better, but it has a little bit of banana. It’s a pretty good lager, but I expected more from an unfiltered. More flavours and character.
