2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Smells like a boozy lager, is this from Russia? Ukraine? Belarus? Marduk says onion, I think that’s one of the hops. Messy rough lager. Alcoholic. Prefer eastern european strong lagers as they’re maltier, and beer is a malt drink. Alcohol not even vaguely covered - it’s aggressive. Big fail.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33 cl from Paris Ste Bière. Deep golden with a short and fleeting head. Aromas of Pils,, thick hop, present bitterness. The taste is bitter sustained by a malted sweetness, a compoted malt. The soft ans spicy bitterness of Saaz is boosted. With a salad with cheddar and croûtons, it was amazing. (4,2 for the salad). Finale sappy, grassy and dry.

Bottle 330ml (BDLX)
Golden color, small white head. Grass, hay in the nose. Light to medium bodied, even thinner than expected for this ABV. Sweet maltyness, cut grass. Nice fruity touch. Lacks butterness of "real Czechs". Quite simple and doesn’t gain much from its higher ABV.
