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

on tap at modry abbe, klatovy. having enjoyed a lot of kout 10ka before and a lot of kout kvasnicovy, this was never going to offer a great deal of surprises. faintly hazy golden with a lasting off-white head, quite a sulphurous aroma, hints of pine and freshly mown grass. quite bitter, soft texture, very swillable stuff

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught, at U Slovanské Lípy, Prague. Somehow fresher, maltier, and hoppier nose than the filtered version. Flavor more complex, though of course less clean and crisp. Estery, with light banana and spice. Slightly sweeter as well. Not as clean, probably better in the winter, but in summer, I put the filtered version a touch above. Wonderful, though, and super tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Blind tasting from draught at Modrý Abbé
Pale golden colour. Fresh, delicat hoparoma with pale maltiness. Low on hops in flavour and light on its feet with pale maltiness. A delicate beer, that gained from being sampled as number two amongst nine beers. Tad butterscotchy, that just adds to the mouthfeel. The bitterness is just wonderful, fresh, crisp and grassy.
