Draft. Pours hazed orange with a white head. Soft fruity sweetness, some yeasty minerally notes, very mild bitterness, light earthy notes, and a quick clean finish. Not bad.

This special unfiltered version of Eggenberg light (svelte) came as a 500ml serving in an Eggenberg mug at the brewery/restaurant. Slightly hazy golden, with bright highlights and durable white head. The flavor gives a surprising impression of mineral water base, although there are minerals in the brewery’s water. Some of this impression may be due to the yeast. In any case, this is noticeably different from the standard light lager. More bitter than sweet, with a nice contribution of bitter hops. The aroma is less yeasty and more hoppy than expected Very good carbonation level; near medium body; slight dryness O - a tasty variant that is claimed to be particularly healthy. Sampled about 12 hours apart, i think i preferred the regular filtered version, but certainly no strong preference.

On tap at Hostinec Richtar Jakub. Hazy yellow to golden colour, medium white stable head. Aroma yeasty, malty, bread. Taste medium bitter a bit metallic, almost medium sour and honey sweet. Weird rollercoaster. Dry sour-bitter earthy hoppy finish.

kingstoni (1684) - FINLAND - JUN 12, 2012
Tap at Eggenberg brewery pub. Hazy yellow color with a thick foamy white head. Aroma is fresh yeast, lemon and wheat bread. Soft sour taste of lemon and yeast.

Rastacouere (6154) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2010
Draught at the brewery beer garden. Clear, straight hazy golden lager whose malts deserved an accolade. It was the first time I used strawy to describe a Czech pils’ malts - a character I adore. Gently biscuity malt profile and sweeter than most. When the hops mix in, it becomes more floral, strawy, herbal even. Feels very pure and remarkably clean. Just a touch sulphury. Growing coating malt freshness seduces you more with every sip. The brewery prximity helps in that regard I guess. Soft bitterness, but with exquisite floral touches.

MiP (14141) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2009
Draught at the brewery’s tap in Cesky Krumlov. Mild yeast aroma. Cloudy dark orange colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is mild and clean. Good mild yeast flavour. Good mouthfeel.

pivnizub (9166) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2008
On tap at the brewery tavern : Pale golden to golden, a bit unclear, light fruity lemony nose over a light malty background, light to moderate sweet and bitter flavour, light bodied, mild citrousy finish with a light bitterness in the aftertaste. A clean and well crafted summer drink..........

motelpogo (7175) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 5, 2008
on tap at the brewery. quite a pale golden, reasonably murky, fat white head. probably a bit too heavy on the yeast - the aroma is all custard and sourdough, the texture is a bit gluggy and there is no discerniable bitterness. a big disappointment

Thing is, on a cold day in Cesky Krumlov with nothing going on... A plate of pork and potatoes and 4-5 mugs of the Dark - That’s the way to go. mmmmmmm After several weeks of Staropramen and Budvar this is especially enjoyable!!!
