2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very pale golden in colour, this is the most widely seen of their beers on draught and so named as Serak is a mountain near Hanusovice. Some grassy hop is evident in the nose, taste and finish with some creamy maltiness present. Far better than the 10 degree, and far better on draught than the fizzy bottles. (sampled on draught in station bar, Hanusovice)

Herbal hop aroma. Golden color, white head, good lace. Light sweet but gets sweeter, rather bitter, bit watery, lots of co2, bit dry.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very clear light yellow gold. . . balanced aroma where hops and malt are dancing in unison. Flavours of chewy dough, dry yellowed grass and wet hop cones. Not as complex as some others have seemed on my trip, but still clean, refreshing and easy drinking.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yellow body. Small-sized white head. Appearance not very inviting. Weak head. Not much of aroma. Too much carbonation. This holds down the score.

When you for whatever reason end up in N-E Bohemia, don’t forget to drop-by in Hanusovice. I reach for Serak whenever I can get my hands on it. The beer has a nice head retention, herbal nose and is well-rounded palate-wise. The only downside is that it is only available in Hanusovice region. And, of course, it is best from barrel.
