Mixed taste profile of pineapple, caramel and jam. Finish off with a lingering drying bitterness. Medium bodied. Pretty decent(On the river boat Elbe Princesse, Prague 30.06.2016).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lahev ( z pivoteky): Golden, unclear, big stable fluffy to rocky white head; distinctive dry herbal-hoppy nose (Centennial) with some sweet pale malt underneath; soft and medium bodied, solid dry bitter-sweet flavour, creamy MF; lingering - hops stick to the palate - dry herbal-hoppy finish with a good pale-malty balance. Pretty czech hop-bomb.......

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Hazy, pale golden colour with a big and persistent foamy white head. Fruity noble hoppy aroma with notes of lemon and pineapples on a mildly sweet malty background. Moderately bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a smooth and pleasant carbonation. Dry malty base with fruity and slightly herbal hoppy taste; dry mildly malty and pronounced fruity and herbal-spicy hoppy finish. Nice IPA-interpretation from the Czech Republic. 20.X.10

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.

Keg at GBBF. golden, cloudy, with a low head. Lemony hopp and pilsner malt nose. Rich and tasty Czech malt flavor, bready, good american hops. Nice stuff. More like an APA. Czech malt profile comes across nicely.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft at prague beer museum. fruity apple and grassy American hop nose; strong pear and fruit cocktail character. high bitterness, pasty and rough everywhere, over-estery, waxy and fruity, and comes across like an American-stye pale ale with citrus rind and kiwi lingering. medium body, moderately chewy, and a bit too sweet.

bottle from Zly Casy. Clear, perhaps slightly hazy golden colour, mid-sized white head. Hoppy nose. Medium-bodied with a solid malty base, but the emphasis of course is on the delicious Centennial hops. Slightly citrusy with a herbal-resiny touch. A pleasure! Superb quality from a very reliable brewery.
