3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Co-op on Abbeville Road. Clear slightly toasty looking amber lager with a medium to large foam head depending on how you pour it. Nose is light grass and hay, sweetish cereal grain malt, crisp slightly bitter hop. On the taste this has a slightly toasty sweetness from the malt. Like the malt character although could maybe do with a touch more crisp dry lager hop bitterness, as body feels a touch lightweight. Decent though and a few notches above the standard macro lager.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml green bottle, filtered, from local closing down Co-op for silly cheap price. Whiff of light-struck hops on opening. Malt is dry, bland, grainy. Hops are not as evident as one would hope from a Czech lager. All in all a less than ordinary beer. Drinkable, but unexciting. Tastes like the regular Staropramen, and probably is the regular Staropramen.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Green 500ml bottle, under it’s Co-Op label: BBD Dec 15. Poured at home in Jan 15. It was taken in a blind tasting with a Pivovar Herold brewed beer and a German Memminger brewed one: this came second in the scores behind the Memminger offering. This Pilsner had all the typical attributes of the style: clean, clear and light golden in colour with the usual fading white head. Crisp on the palate but odourless almost, pleasant blend in the mouth, hops lead with a good underbelly of light maltiness the balance out the bitterness and dryness of the hop content: decent.
