3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, toasted-straw color body with gentle carbonation and a cottony, white head. Aroma of fresh and toasted malt with floral and apple notes. Flavor has tangy fruit characters and some distant floral Saaz characters plus subdued bitterness. Also has metallic note. Doesn’t please me quite like other offerings from this brewery.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 mL capped Bottle: pours nicely into the tall pilsner glass: frothy Styrofoam head constantly fed by streaming golden bubbles. Mostly clear. Thick, sweet, malty aroma laced evenly with dusty hop flowers, chalk, and bitter honey. Soft, only slightly gritty palate. Sweet and juicy flavours with a mild and lingering bitterness. Refreshing and tasty on Hot days in the city…

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very attractive deep golden, with an abundant head. Good looking stuff. Lightly dusty spicy saaz aroma. Some beefy czech malt as well. Firm honey-laced malts, just dripping with that signature czech flavor. Quite malty. Decent bitterness, with some late spicy hop character. As a matter of personal preference I prefer my pilsners a bit leaner and meaner (northern german, or from downington, if you must know) but as far as a malty czech one, this ones a real winner.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours to a clear golden yellow with some bronze highlights, along with a small white head that quickly dies. The aroma is light applejuice, vegitable, floral, and hints of bread. The taste is light apples, bread, carrot, light peppery yeast, and some bitter hops. Light bodied, medium carbonated, has a lightly sweet aftertaste with some bitter hops.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I forget who shared this at Paul’s party, but thanks.
Poured golden with a thin white head. Corn and bubble gum in the aroma. Taste is corn, german hops, and some strange instant noodle soup character. Didn’t really enjoy this too much, but in all fairness, it probably didn’t help that we opened this bottle immediately after Dogwood Youngbloods...

Thanks to friend and RateBeerian; BeanDip for this 16oz bottle, one in which she received from her Michael Jackson Rare Beer Club.
(Herold Bohemian Bronze Lager)
Pours a golden / copper body and a velvety white head. The aroma is sweet and holds an intriguing lemongrass hoppyness to the finish. The flavor again is a balance of sweet notes of honeysuckle; hand churned buttered crackers, a herbal tea like character, brown wild rice and a lemon zest, spicy and grassy hop in the sweet then bone-dry finish. The palate has some nice oily texture to it, which adds a bit more intrigue.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep golden colour. Very light copper coloured with a creamy white head. Faint malt aroma. Caramel malt flavour. Not quite as pilsener like as the 12%, but I like the flavour better. It's more robust.
