3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle. Pours golden with at first a nice head. This fades over 5 minutes and the bubbles are very gentle. The nose is dominated by breakfast cereal and this is not a lager which has much citrus fruit on it. On the palate it’s more big pale malt tastes but it cleans beautifully with a hint of citrus. The palate is medium bodied with a reasonable texture and a nice clean finish. Overall, a good example of a Czech lager.
