3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Hay-like cereals, stone minerals and orange-y splashes lead to pepper-y hop bitterness in this bubbly, lean quencher.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the amber gown.
-The flavour profile is balanced and delicate.
-This is akin to many Světlý Výčepní I’ve had.
-If it were on cask, I would drink it like water.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Brewdog Slovensko. Aroma caramel, light hops, very light fruitiness. Clear amber colour. Medium sized white head, very short duration. Taste is mostly hoppy right from the beginning. Hops profile is simple and uninteresting, earthy, with quite stong metallic tang. Finish is plain bitter and metallic.

Pours orange with a frothy head. Aroma if wet leaves and malt. Slight metallic taste, slightly bitter, but rather ordinary all around.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.5l bottle. This one is clear dark nutty golden - almost bronze in the glass and it has a medium sized islandy and bubbly white head. Not to inviting on the aroma to be honest. Quite grainy with something bearing resemblance of vegetables. Also traces of both biter nuts and wet grass. Something that’s not tickling my nose here, but hard to pinpoint what it is. It’s really thin and watery this. Below average on the carbonation. Soft and watery flavors. Feels floral with a thin but still present bitterness. Actually not that bad, but the flavor is really generic and standard. Wish it could be a bit more challenging, but considering the genre and the abv, it’s not all that bad. 26.04.2013

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. A gift for my 35th b-day togehther with 25 more beer bottles. Malty aroma with tiny hints fruits. The color is nice golden brown. The taste is malty, refreshing, espresso like, bitter finish. Alcohol low due to 3.5% abv. The overall taste is similar to a home brew I recently made from concentrate (a bitter ale style beer).

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unexceptional but quite drinkable. It suffers for its lack of alcohol, leaving the flavor flat and simple, but not necessarily bad.

500ml bottle from Eide Handel. Shiny copper coloured body. Off-white head with fine retention. Smooth leafy hops on the nose, semi-sweet. Flavours of caramel and leafy hops. Sharp, but short-lived, dry bitter ending. Not too thin. A decent session beer (shared with friends in Tromsø, 02.08.2013).
