4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught @ U Slovanske Lipy. I don’t know why it still surprises me, but I still wonder how it’s possible that my favourite Kout is the only one that does not do well over here. Above average effervescence in this hazy golden offering. What strikes is its immediate, pretty much extreme freshness as it approaches the nose. And I’m not even drinking it at the brewpub. Extremely fresh, bready, gently grainy, marvellously cerealic. Pils malt really is unmatched. Almost intensely soft maltiness if you follow me. Quite hoppier than an average 10 degrees, but exquisitely so with its bright floral, leafy, spicy touches that conclude with a rare lemony kiss that makes the difference and I wish was in every pilsner out there. I had the chance to have a sun ray from the window of the table I was sitting at. Taking the risk of skunking my beer (it was so easy to go for a second pint), I was brave and put the beer into the sunlight for a moment. A moment of heaven.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2012 Tap @ U Slovanske Lipy, Prague. Pours unclear hazy yellow with a large creamy white head and lacings. Yeast, hay, grass, herbs and some vague notes of citrus and lemon. Nose also has a bit of butter and buiscuit. Floral, crisp, dry and hoppy. Lovely. Another re-rate. Again fromtap at Lipy. This what I would drink 9/10 if I could. 4-4,2

Draft at Modrý Abbé. A hazy golden beer with a huge yellowish head. The aroma is sweet with a weird note of eggs combined with lighter notes of sulphur and yeast. The flavor is sweet and very malty combined with light notes of straw and bread, leading to a lightly bitter finish. The body is medium.

On tap. Slightly hazy golden with a tall, dense, white head. Sweetish malt aroma but also a little butter. Medium body, fairly high carbonation and a sweet maltiness - fortunately the butter accents remained in the nose only. Discreet and lightly floral bitterness. 280608

[tap at blind tasting at Modrý Abbé in Klatovy]
A bit of sort of rancid, cheesy hops with some pleasant malt. Lacy, white dense fizz above a hazy copper. A bit harsh hops flavour with just a touch too much hops bitterness, but partially balanced by pleasant sweet malt. Medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly lasting bitterness.

(6/28/08) Draught at a blind tasting at Modrý Abbé in Klatovy. Clear golden with a medium beige head. Aroma is quite malty with light butterscotch and some hoppy notes. Sweetish flavor with bready notes turns to hoppy bitterness, quite grassy, with hints of metal. Light to medium-bodied. Not bad.
