3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Toulavy Kocour Pub (03/03/13). Feels good to renew with this level of quality Czech beers after a rather disapointing dinner. Clear, very light, bright gold pour with impeccable white head. Aroma of fresh cereal, grain, lots of hops, grassy/leafy saaz but also some more new-world varieties, some hints of citrus, light lemon, melon and pineapple, light honey grainy notes. Taste is grainy, light honey-like perceived sweetness although the beer itself is quite dry, light fruity hops, well dosed bitter finish. Palate is dry, soft, silky carbonation, great palate. A nice modern twist that respects the traditional character of this style.

Draught, small stable fluffy head, clear shiny gold color, intense ripe fruity aroma with some malt and a hint of vanila, flavor of grapefruit and herbs with a light maltiness in the back, empathic medium lingering bitterness and a light sweetness. Very good pilsener.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Elegant citrusy hop spiciness benefits from a grassy touch in this crisp, refreshing Svetly.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A super creamy head of foam tops the bright yellow mist.
-The finish is hoppier than your average Svetly.
-The mouthfeel is creamy yet not very sweet at all.
-A touch of hay is shared by the pils malts.
On tap at U Toulavy Kocour, Brno.

Bottle from Pivonka, Hradec Kralove. Pours light golden with a big frothy white head. Arma is fruity and citric. Fizzy mouthfeel. Taste is full of crisp citrusy hops, which make my mouth dry up, ends bitter malty, with a rather good and lingering sour touch. Nice and refreshing beer from Varnsdorf

Bottled. Classic light golden hazy color with nice stable foam. Aroma is not very impressive, some malts and a bit of hops. Taste suprisingly sweet with some bitterness which is enriched closer to the end. Medium body.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Earthy aroma, very spicy (pepper, herb), a little butter. Flavor is strongly bitter and with almost no sweetness. Slight diacetyl. A little thin. Great head, frothy and dense also. Bracingly bitter. I like that but others may not. Quite fresh. Good Lord almighty do I love a fresh unfiltered pils.
