asheft (2905) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2008
[on tap at Koutland in Plzen] Sweet 2-row aroma with citrus and peack and watermelon sorbet notes along with some noble hops. Hazy, dark yellow under a white sheet that doesn’t last too long. Quite a bit of diacetyl in the flavour. Sweet with almost some corn together with the malt. Some rancidy and bitter hops that become more perceptible after the palate adjusts to the sweetness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitterness.

jonas (6619) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2008
Bottle, thanks a lot Harrisoni! Fruity yeast and nice fresh grassy and citric hop note. Cloudy golden, tanned creamy layer. Very good fruity start, mainly orangepeel, a hint butterscotch which actually fits well in, good grassy hopprofile in the finish, all perfectly balanced. Chewy grain bottom, sparkly mouthfeel. Truly great.

ogivlado (7064) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 15, 2008
Draught at Koutland, Plzen.
Light hazy yellow coloured, small white head, light bready butterscotch nose. Light malty, fresh hoppy and too strong butterscotch taste for rate higher than 3.1.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2008
(Draught) Pours light hazy golden. The aroma is light to medium sweet with some buttery notes. Floral hops and bread/cookie-like malt. Bit yeasty. The flavour is of grassy hops, bread and cookie-like malt. Some buttery notes are present in the flavour as well. The mouthfeel is light creamy, light soft and bit crisp with a dry finish. Medium bodied.

imdownthepub (12803) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2008
Draught at Koutland, Plzen. Hazed gold with off white head. I found the unfiltered version to have a much greater hoppy character with a real lime like character. Dry and herbal, I noted parsley but it was getting late, it finished quite bitter. Good stuff.

oh6gdx (24607) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2008
Draught. Hazy golden colour with mediumsized white creamy head, leaves some lace. Aroma is yeast, some malts, sweet berries, earth and rather diacetylic. Flavour is quite much the same, and aftertaste leaves a grassy diacetyl. 7 3 7 3 14

Bottled. Colour is not as hazy as the draught one, no lace. More berries and mild yeasty notes as well as sweet vegetably notes in aroma. Flavour has lots of grass, some mild yeast as well as mild grassy hops. 8 3 8 3 16.

harrisoni (16846) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2008
On tap at Koutland, Plzen. Grassy diacetyl. Real shame. Grassy hop like the filtered version, bit sweet and full in mouth, but the diacetyl kills it. Re-rate Bottle bought from the bar and drunk in my hotel room. A rather good unfiltered 12 degree beer with plenty of character and hop. Having had a number of these this weekend, this isn’t bad, in fact it’s just about the best except Pilsner Urquell.

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2008
Draught at Koutland, Plzen. Hazy yellow colour. Fresh, hoppy aroma with quite a lot of butterscotch, not too much since the maltiness is still sensed. Good malty flavour with grassy hops. The sampling from bottle felt much fresher and hoppier, with much less butterscotch, if any at all.
