3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A surprisingly solid Bohemian from an unexpected quarter. More authentic and satisfying than 90% of the pilseners I’ve encountered down under. Hazy gold with a fleeting head. Good malty aroma with some fruity esters and for once real Saaz presence. Medium bodied with a nice, phlegmy finish. Good Saaz presence again on the tongue. Very well rounded, with a solid bitter finish. Onya, fellas - nice work. I’d buy this if I could find it on NSW shelves. (330ml bottle from Australian Micro Beer Club March 2011)

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle. Only a slightly darker shade than water. Head is minimal with a sparse scattering of white bubbles. Grassy straw aroma and a harsh acrid flavour that leaves a strong bitter aftertaste. Not pleasant at all.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 330ml bottle on 14/3/2011. Pours a clear straw colour with a decent head. Has a moderate grassy, malty aroma. In the mouth, it’s got lots of Euro malt and Saaz character, along with a bit of citrus at the end. Nicely hopped and quite refreshing. A pretty good pilsener.
