3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is quite neutral with hardly anything recognizable. Head starts small and vanishes quickly, but the one sip I managed to taste was nice, a bit bitter and a bit creamy. And the compulsory thin foam layer remains all the time. Taste is well balanced between sweety malt and moderately spicy hops. Starts with a bit too much carbonation but later some of the fizzle vanishes which improves things, as some fresh, spicy taste manages to come though. The aftertaste lasts long, a bit bitter but lacking any freshness or spicyness. Overall, this is an aceptable 12, but there are much better ones In Bohemia.
