Tap @ Modrý Abbé.
2nd beer in the blindtasting.
Pours an impressive golden with a big, beautiful, creamy, white head. Super duration. Aroma is very grassy, some pine, a little cardboard and crisp malts. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel that borders on slightly thin. Flavour is pleasantly bitter, good chewy malts and generally a nice balance.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Modry Abbe, no.2 on the blind tasting. Gold with white head. This came out as relatively hoppy, in a Saaz hop type of way, light lemony, grassy and dry. Seemingly quite carbonated and scented, but the body is thin and unsubstantial.
