2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ brewpub. Deeper copper color than the gold with lots of bubbles but head retention is not as good as the gold. Similar aroma as gold is minerally, clean and astringent. Smooth palate with slightly bigger body than the gold but still on the thin side. Has more malt character and is generally a better beer than its counterpart but still mediocre and thin.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Gammerbeer, Hanoi. Golden with small white head. Sweet malt and grassy hops. Not a lot of difference between this and the gold. Low bitterness and not much body. Slightly better than your mass produced lager.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden color, decent creamy white head. Light sweet brewing mash aroma. Sweet malty, a bit more alcoholic than "Gold". Aftertaste is malty and a bit alcoholic. Not much own character, but a kind of German-type "Export" beer style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at the brewpub. Clear deep golden, fair sized head creamy head. Light oily saaz hop aroma. Sweet and medium bodied, with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Somewhat sugary. Typical Czech style lager, but leaning more towards the more commercial mainstream versions. Finishes with fairly low bitterness.
