(Draught at U Slovanske Lipy, Prague, 30 July 2011) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty nose with notes of bread, grass and hay. Malty taste with bread, grass, hints of citrus and a gentle bitterness in the finish. Rather light body, with balanced sweetness. Hardly exceptional, but decent and highly drinkable.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught @ Slovanske Lipy. Insanely good pilsener this one. Pours hazy golden. Kind of light and easy going in a lot of ways, but with a crisp almost sparkiling citrus like hoppiness. Thin in the way that makes it impossible not to drink.

Draught @ Gastropub Tuulensuu
Fresh aroma has butter, some grain and hints of metal. A bit sweet flavour has some butter. It is a bit sourish which is uncommon for this style but fits in fine though. Dry finish. A very good pils, beats even the 12°.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Quite how they pack so much flavour and pleasure into a desitka is beyond me. Crisp, refreshing and with a firm hoppy bite, the nose is all lemon and hay, drinking is biscuity with a touch of bread. A delightful beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught, at U Slovanské Lípy, Prague. Deep, clear golden color with a ine, slick head. Biscuity pale malt and grassy hop aroma. Light, crisp flavor. Great hops--not over-bearing, but perfect balance and bitterness. Wow! What flavor for a 10 degree beer! Clean, biscuit malts, amazingly crisp. I could drink a lot of this! Smooth, but slighty zippy carbonation. Peppry finish. wonderful. A beer I want on tap at my huose in the summer.
