on tap at the pub by pilsen south station which always has the cesta pivnich znalcu series beers. anyways, this is the summer beer - a pale lager with some cannabis, cardamom and lemon balm (medunka). full marks for originality and this is pleasant at first. some sharp tang from the lemon balm with a real metallic character and hints of wormwood give it a fernet-like character but don’t exactly scream out ’drinkability’
