3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This one is a very special for me, so the review is going to be highly subjective (not that reviews should be objective, but you get the point).
Golem was my first contact with a "craft" beer. It was in times when I did not like beer all that much, I was drinking just occasionally, not really enjoying it all that much. The first time I had Golem I was amazed by its hazy rough looks and such a simple yet very pleasant flavor that was so much different to all macro lagers I had before.
I come back to have a few Golems whenever I’m in Kosice and I still enjoy it very much. I’m glad it hasn’t lost its special character for me after I’ve discovered the varied world of beer.
On tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy yellow with lasting white head. Aroma is malt, cereal, hint of grassy and citrusy hops. Flavor is cereal, malt, hint of grassy hops. Very high drinkability.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tapped at hostinec Richtar Jakub in Bratislava/Slovakia. Innitial minor hop aroma, but the aroma tends to unfold itself after a few moments into its full glory! This beer has a tasty balanced hop and malt taste. Nice pleasant hop finish. Refreshing and very drinkable. Overall I think this is a great craft lager.

Draft at Brewpub. Quite hazy unfiltered, light yellow. Good foamy head, mild aroma. Somewhat funky, yeasty body, reminds of some Belgian-ness. White pepper, some soap. creamy, somewhat silky body. Quite alright, and pretty tasty.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2013 Tap at Richtar Jakub. Aroma is yeasty young, some saaz, light lemon. Hazy yellow to copper colour. Taste is about the same as aroma. While certainly drinkable, with creamy mouthfeel, the hops is rough around the edges. Young. 5 4 5 2 10. Rerate at Golem. Aroma yeasty, pilsener malty, light lemony. Taste has maltiness nicely balanced with bitter hops and touch of lemon. Hops is not at all rough. Good.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Po troch rokoch som ho opat ochutnal, ale bieda. Farba stale velmi mutna do zlta. Bez vyraznejsej vone. Chut bez tela, sladove bez vyraznej dochuti.
