4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My Bottom Line:
Super citrusy and floral hoppiness moves into refined base malts before leaving a trail of resinous bitterness on the palate.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam garnishes the dark golden haze.
-The hop bitterness also has grassy edges.
-Mouthfeel is slender, very drinkable.
-It could be more aromatic, but it is a very friendly, refined hop vehicle.
On tap at U Toulavy Kocour, Brno.

Color - fine, pale orange. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon and grass. Very rich citrus taste. Strong, long lasting bitterness. Carbonation a bit too high. Very good IPA.

Bottle from Pivni Rozmanitost. Yellow ochre colour, small whitish head. Nettle and citrus aroma. Medium body, long-lasting bitterness, citrus flavours propelled by perfect carbonation. Excellent beer, well worth trying - one of Kocour’s best.

Plastic bottle sample at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Pours murky green-gold with white film. Smells skunky and grassy and tastes green, almost-dry, bitter taste. Medium body, long, green finish, delicate fizz. Nice.

Keg ay Prague Beer Museum. Golden with a white head. Aroma of citrus and flowery hops. Not much malt to the taste. More like a well hopped lager or Golden ale. Still nice though.
