3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This pours a burnished golden color out of the bottle with a sticky, foamy white head. Watery hop nose with some tropical fruit and cat urine notes. Light body with some crackers and lemon cookies and a strong pinching hop resin, tropical fruit and BO hoppiness to it. This is hop tea. If you like the new varietals of hops you will enjoy this beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer can be very hit or miss. That being said, when it’s right it is quite delicious. Most often I’ve enjoyed the occasion cask versions but from time to time the bottles are tastey too. The aroma is pungent earthy and spicey hops. The flavor follows with both an abundance of hop flavor and solid bitterness. Being a lager the finish is exceptionally crips and clean.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden body, small head. Very hoppy aroma, mixing piney with herbal and grassy hops. Smooth refined malts, clean, almost too clean, but easily drinkable. Slightest bit too carbonated. Nice drinkable pilsner, holds very well. (33cl bottle from Bičre Révolution)
