4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Interesting to taste some classics made by such a crazy dicks like BrewDog) Pours brightly gold-straw, a bit hazy although.
Very correct zesty floral Saaz hops aroma: tons of grass, citrus, pine and huge grainy trail behind.
As it comes to taste, I remind that it’s BrewDog’s creation, and I definilety like this eXXXtra bitterness. Surprisingly, but it fades away quite fast.
Medium-bodied, medium-carbonated and terrificly drinkable. Na zdraví!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
4.7% bottle from Rakuten. More of a honey gold than your typical pale yellow lager, ok head that dissipates fast leaving behind some lacing. The aroma is hay, grass, a hint of floral hops. Smooth mouthfeel, pleasantly neutral bitteness at first, then some hay like malt notes followed by a dry finish that leaves behind mild bitter notes. it is a pretty classic traditional pils, it avoids the sugariness of industrial lagers & overpowering grainy notes. A good beer for everyday drinking though in general I prefer more flavor. Nice though, this is what normal lagers should taste like but it isn’t pushing a lager to it’s full potential.

Pours out of the bottle in a clear golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and grains. Taste of ripe hops, straw, grass, citrus and nuts. Light sweet-metallic hints. Easy and nice to drink - okay, yet no aroma-bomb like expected or hoped for.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 330ml. Clear golden color, small white head. A bottle was a bit gusher. Buttery, rubbery, Saaz aroma, this one has similarities to Koff III. Light bodied. Quite aggressive, Czech grassy-spicey hoppyness, light buttery notes. Kind of even unbalanced compared to "originals". Standard lager with added bitterness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Malting Pot. Hazy golden body with puffy head. Nose is hoppy, grainy, watery. Taste is hoppy, with that corny and eggy taste of pilsener. It is pretty good considering, but alright.
