Pilsener with nice Bohemian impact; doesn’t need much adjustment to play top class.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lovely aroma - little fresh tartness on the nose and a good amber colour. Good crispness on first taste could do with a little more petulance.
ALMOST a fresh ammonia - not unpleasant - initial taste with a savoury finish reminding me of lime leaves.
