1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Draught at Pivovarsky Dum. Murky pond water green... um is this my beer? The aroma is spicy and grassy with some black pepper. The taste is.. not good. Black pepper and weird bitterness. Ick. This beer is not at all to my liking. Oh ya, and WTF is nettle? We’ve got stinging nettle back in California and it hurts a lot to run into; not the kind of thing that I would want to put in beer.

Draught. Really unique nose, herbal and spicey. Clear green with no head but slow rising carbonation. Strong pine flavor on a clean palate. High overall score for uniqueness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Pivovarsky Dum, Praha.
Green coloured, pale green kiwi coloured, peppery nose. Mild malty, peppery and sparkling herbal nettle aroma. Mild teasingly nettle finish. Like my friend said: I feel like a goat after browsing nettles. Certainly very interesting.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Green, yes green, color. No head. Spicy pepper aroma, notes of nettels and a bit herbal. Herbal flavor, flat and it dies quickly in your mouth. At least it was an interesting experience, but please dont allow beer to be green...

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at the brewpub. Not Ecto Cooler green, more like clear mint leaf green. Short white head. Sure smells of nettles, that’s for sure, feel like I’m crawling through the bush and eating everything that passes my mouth. Interesting, to say the least. Watery thin body. Taste is a drier form of mouthwash, herbal, minty, and strange. Especially the aftertaste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2008 First rating
Clear dark green color, small white with some green head. Fresh vegetable scent. Odd vegetable flavor, not reallt like the nettle soup or the nettle beer brewed by myself. Still very refreshing. Good bitterness, a bit sour. Nettles in the aftertaste. I remember the nettle beer I tried at the same location a year ago to be much better and having a different look to it. Perhaps they changed it?
(Draught at the brewpub in PRague on June 24, 2008)
Clear dark green color, green head. Very funny. Spicy, sweet, butterscotch and nettles scent, also grassy. NEttles and grassy thin taste. Thin mouthfeel, low bitterness.
