On tap Quite bitter, little lacing. Surprising for a 11 degree beer, overwhelming taste. Not for me, but if you like bitter it may be for you!

brewtalita (222) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 18, 2016
Copper colour, almost non - existence of head (chilled bottle poured to snifter). Aroma of strawberry jam and toffee. Palate and carbonation medium. Taste is sweet caramel, fruit notes, bitter and dry finish which holds on your palate for long. Finally, this beer is getting into its former shape although from what I can remember the recipe was multiple times modified thus there is no point in rating this whatsoever.

75 ml sample at tasting. Gusher! BB FEB-2016. Hazy amber. Citrus hops in the nose, some off sour notes, little malts. Tastes dry, citrus hops, but also a bit young with a astringent homebrewish bitterness. Might be a bad bottle. (Backlog 17-JAN-2016).

17/VIII/15 - 33cl bottle from a trade @ home - BB: 30/VIII/15 (2015-1090) Thanks to motelpogo for the trade!

Clear orange beer, big aery beige to yellow head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very chemical, lots of band-aid, bit dirty, some chemical, fruity touch, hoppy notes. MF: too much carbon, medium body. Taste: very bitter, unpleasant bitterness, sourish, infected. Aftertaste: funky, dirty, very bitter, infected, vinegar, lemon juice. Well, I guess this makes 4 out of 7 beers from Kocour are infected. In my books, that’s a very bad bad brewery! :-(((
