2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle 0,5l. Clear gold body, medium white head. Sweet malty aroma, yeasty, but weak. Taste at first malty, sweet, grainy, yeasty, medium bitterness; quite nice. In the aftertaste industrial hop bitterness - rough and unpleasant, whole nice experience was gone with it. Medium body, high carbonated.
Drinkable average commercial pilsener, not bad, but nothing "festive" (what is translation for "sváteční").

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, poured into its own glass. Colour is clear golden amber; head off-white, retains nicely and leaves very little lacing. Nose is clean pale malts, grassy Noble hops, hay and notes of honey. Taste dominated by intense, somewhat spicy hops with good bitterness, some caramel, and dank grains. Palate thick and sticky, body medium and carbonation lively. Finish malty and grassy bitter, lingering. Decent go-to lager when nothing fancier available. A solid 3/5 from me.
