2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yellow with white head. Sweet taste. Still tastes like a pilsener, so they balanced the sweetness quite well. I was surprised and like it. This one’s above the standard cheap pilseners and lagers.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pour is a bright yellow with a small white head. Aroma is nice, with a dry pils malt and a little floral in there. The flavor is where this goes into the tank. The blurb at the top says this "gets sweet on the palate" and wow does it ever. Very cloyingly sweet and heavy. Reminds me of a malt liquor after the aroma.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is bready malts and a noticeable spiciness. The flavor is malts, bread, grain sweetness and a mildly spicy hoppiness in the finish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured at a good temperature with a small off-white head that quickly disappears leaving on a ring and few small islands and no lace. Aroma is beery, malt, hops. Flavor is good at first with some good hop bitter and carbonic tang, but then a lot of sweet after that. A little out of balance. Body and carbonation are ok. Finish like flavor with sweetness dominating and has some length, which I wish it didn’t.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, medium stable fluffy head, clear dark gold colour with some coppery taints, aroma of vanila with some caramel and herbal touches flavour of toffee and dried fruits with a strong alcoholic presence that is quite sticky. Quite difficult to drink and not very appealing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear gold with a white head. Malt and spicey hop aroma. Taste is cloyingly(!) sweet honey malt with light herbal hop finish. Way unbalanced, tastes more like a heller bock.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark yellow with a very light head, not much carbonation seen. Aroma was malty. Taste is malty with mild hops, sweet taste. Very full. Nice aftertaste. Not a bad beer!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle. No best by date.
It pours a nice deep gold but with an unconvincing head that struggles to form then turns super-soapy.
The smell is decent. A floral burst of Saaz hops and some bready malts. It smells pasteurized but not old.
The flavor is slightly spicy with a hint of orangey hops but mostly malty. It is really just layers of pale malt hitting you in different ways. Maybe a few decoctions.
That being said it still tastes off. There is just something to it that is stale or pasteurized.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
0,3 fra fat pĺ Cafe Svejk. Mer smak og bitterhet enn standard industripils, men litt rĺ og metallisk ettersmak. Ikke det helt store.
