3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From tap at Prague Beer Museum (N. Míru). Misty golden body. Herbal, dry, citric (sweetish), dusty lovely aroma, quite fresh too, light gum. Fresh herbal bitter assault, lasting, countered with some gum, very, very tasty. The herbal bitter aftertaste lasts a long, long time. Now, we’ve had 3 Matuška’s pale ales before that day, this pretty much beat all of them except for the insanely good California. A bit sad I haven’t had more Kocours on that trip, but delighted they are still so awesome.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Söder om Småland, Malmö, 6% ABV
it has been quite difficult to pour; finally there is a cloudy golden liquid in the glass, with generous compact head. The aroma not only is malty and fruity, but also quite clearly buttery. The mouthfeel is smooth; the malt flavor has a grainy character (appreciated); strong bitterness and strong hopping, with hop oils and a grassy accent, not much fruity; luckily the diacetyl is not apparent.
Good one, and different from the American style.

Gravity dispense at the GBBF 2014. Clear amber with a white foam head. Nose is nice and grainy, lair yeast, caramel and biscuit malt, toffee, grassy, straw. Taste has the IPA tang of hop and pine but it’s a nice combination of IPA and lager pilsner, Grass and straw on the finish and tangy hop and pine.
