3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml swing-top bottle from Csak a Jó Sör - Only Good Beer in Budapest. Pours a hazed golden colored body with a finger-width, frothy and creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is floral with a slight honey sweetness, a touch of DMS, oxidized cardboard, a bit of an herbal spice, and some bread. Flavor is better. Creamy pale malts with a slight honey sweetness, a light grass and herbal spice, some yeast, a good amount of florals, and a light bready note. Finishes clean and creamy with a light floral bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a medium-light, soft body and a creamy, medium carbonation. Overall, the aroma wasn’t very good, but the flavor had a nice creaminess and floral bitterness without any of the off-flavors showing up. Not bad.

In bottle, thanks Sev. Pours a blonde colour with a decent white head. Aroma of honey, black pepper, musty yeast, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

Tasted on tap at Főzdefeszt, Budapest.
Some cloudy appearance with a pale golden body, nice medium foamy white head. Balanced malts, some caramel, strong herbal hops in the aroma. Medium bodied one with abready malt base, powerful bit of the Spalter hops with a fine herbal taste on the tongue. Nice and easy drinkable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Tap @ Csak a jo Sör, Budapest 24/08/11. Pours cloudy golden with a large head that doesn’t recede easily. Aroma is... hops. They’re not kidding about the massive mountains of Spalter hops. Grassiness and herbal hopping rules the aroma. The same with the flavor though you can detect some cereal maltiness behind it all. Palate is stingy, dry, carbonated. An excellent lager. Would love to drink pints and pints of it, especially at the weathers during the trip in August 2011.

Zavaros aranyszínű ízében az IPA-kra és a zwickl-re (ez utóbbira a színében is) emlékeztető sör, valahol a kettő közé tenném.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at the NYE tasting in Beerville pub in Belgrade-Serbia, 31/12/2015. Pours cloudy golden (dark), NO foam at all! Meh. Nose: traces of diacetyl (!), butter pastry and cookies. Mouth: not unpleasant but flat and with a confusing sweetness. Maybe a bad bottle?
