2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Not fantastic. Tastes like a cheap Czech pilsner (Branik, Gambac 10 - those in the know are aware of what I mean). Pale, grassy, some bitterness, fairly clean. Just an unspectacular pilsner.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a pale straw-gold-golden clear body with a fine white head, few fields as lacing.
Scents of malts, sweet caramel with a little toffee touch, grassy fruity hops, bread, pilsener wort, strawy notes as well.
Soft fine taste; grassy fruity hops, caramel malts, bread, wort, a little toffee touch. Normal on palate, maybe a little more carbonation would’ve helped. Hoppy grassy caramelly finish, average lasting. Nice czech svetly pilsener, a desitka I assume. "Top-notch light czech pilsener" label says. Not far from top-notch at least.
[Ingredients; Bojos & Malz barleys, Sladek, Premiant & Saaz hops (all 3 in the Saaz/Zatec family), barley & wheat malts. Brewed at (Pivovar Žatec!) Zizkovo Namesti 81, CZ-43801 Žatec (Saaz). 50cl brown bottle 4%abv, BB05.02.15, B@Kjeller5, XmasGift from Trond (Otto) thanx man!]

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a light golden clear body with a small white head. Nose is pale malts, mild bready tones, faint metal and hints of grass and wet dog in the back. Taste is bread crust, pilsener malt, mild grassy tones and hints of straw and red berries. Light, near-watery body, high carbonation. Not a very noteworthy beer, really.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5l bottle. In the glass this is a pretty clear one, golden looking and it has a small bubbly and almost islandy white head. It doesn’t really smell all that impressive. Buttery sweet caramel, some grassy hints and perhaps a little corn. It’s not what I look for in a pilsner. It tastes pretty alright, but oh so boring. Feels thin oily in the mouth and it has a mild soft bubbled average carbonation level. Mild buttery pilsner flavors all the way. I’m serving this relatively cold, so there’s no big off flavors detected. Remember I had a goal keeper from Austria called Otto on my premier manager 98’ game once. A great goal keeper, and I believe he still has a trainer job within football. 27.06.2014

Bottle from Ultra drainpoured at home
Golden, white head. Smell of cooked carrots, sweet corn, hints of dust. Taste of brewing flaws, this is 100% drainpour i’m afraid. Seems like there are good and bad bottles due to ratings here

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium white head. Clear paleish yellow body with light
carbonation. Sugary grassy fruity aroma with mealy earthy strawy
notes. Sweetish mealy earthy strawy taste with fruity sugary
notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish spicy
floral mineraly aftertaste with fruity mealy grassy notes.
Buttery finish. This is actually nice. Had low expectations, but
this is a good lager, if a bit on the sweet side. Very
