3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Toasted malt cookies and a honeyed coulis dip into herbal, spicy hops and their bitterness for a dry, quenching Svetly.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam sits atop the dark golden with amber highlights.
-The flavor profile is appropriately balanced.
-Malt flavors are nicely extracted without having to come from residual sugars.
-This is another one of those Svetly Lezaks aiming at being an Urquell replacement, and it is doing a fine job at that.
On tap at Zly Casy, Praha.

On tap at Zly Casy (02/03/13). Clear gold pour with a nice frothy white head. Leafy hop aroma, light caramel notes, grain husks. Flavor is smooth, definitely a very light touch of caramel in there, toast, fresh bread, hops are fresh and leafy. Really good silky palate, dry. A premium example.

Malty, slightly toasty taste with notes of bread, cereal, hints of orange peel and a fairly dry finish with a spicy bitterness. Medium body, fairly dry. Quite nice and tasty.
