3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2012 Draught at the 16th BBF, as their "Pale Ale". Hazy dark golden with a sudsy, lacing beige head. Dank hoppy nose with a lot of orange, taste is medium-strong bitter with pith and rind, but a soft light-medium body. Hops aren’t too special, but I can’t shake the feeling that this is a good step forward for the Czech brewing industry. [3.2] Re-rate from the bottle: stronger bitterness, drier and tastier, but the details stand. Yummy. [3.4]

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(on tap @ Kulovy Blesk, Prague)golden-amber colour, hazy, almost creamy white head. Smells fruity - maybe lychee. Aroma is fruity and citrussy, though not as much as the smell indicates and as one would expect from an APA, because the pale malty base becomes more dominant. Taste with quite some hop bitterness, no sweetness. Taking into consideration the low abv, there is a lot of aroma and a good mouthfeel. Overall a very good session beer with a light body and a dry finish, which makes you want to drink more of it.
