3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the Davis Co-Op. Pours pale gold with a 3 finger foamy white head. Grassy aroma. Near med body. There’s a light breadiness with a decent amount of grassy hop. Then there’s an odd paperiness with a malt hinting of Near Beer. There’s some malt sweet that’s well balanced, but it doesn’t quite come off as an Urquell clone. Maybe that wasn’t the intent. Drinks nicely.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, gift from LarsGa, thanks!. Very pale beer. Somewhat stale hoppy aroma. Flavour is like a Balkan lager, they have found the recipe, but they’re not wuite able to make it right. The hops are a bit off, there is a hint of cardboard. But it’s almost there, it is perfectly acceptable to drink, but the flavour is not crisp and clean enough.
