Keg at U Slovanske Lipy. Tried alongside the Regular 12. This one won. Pours a hazy yellow with a thick White head. Plenty of aromatic hops on the nose. Floral and grassy. Slighlty herbal. The Malt character is pronounced (just as in the regular 12) but there’s definitly a buttery element to this one which gives it more character than an average Pilsner. Less crispness too but still a lovely bitterness to finish. Great beer.

Koutský 12° Světlý Ležák - Bohemian Pilsener - 5%.
Orange color, slightly hazed, thick creamy white head. Fruity aroma, apricot, white grapes, peach, syrup, ginger. Resin on the hops side.
Great taste play, starts juicy sweet and finish biting bitter, with a wonderful tray of hops lingering. Finish is smooth, bitter, long, full of fops. Very tasty, excellent, one of the best svetly pilseners, stants out for its fruity overtones and great hops balance.

Tap. Semi cloudy chill haze deeper golden orange. Earthy, biscuity, doughy and savory aroma. Flavor falls a bit flatter, but nice hop earthiness and crackery malt. Body is soft, but a bit still. I’m sure that this is way better closer to its home.

Keg @ Churchkey. The pour’s hazy deep gold with a prominent creamy, thick white head. This beer nails it for looks. The nose is mellow honeycomb, beeswax. Spring bloom. Delicate flowery hop accents and hints of citrus. Lovely creamy malt base. More beeswax and pollen. Tree leaves, grass. Just a hint of lemony bitterness on the finish. Moderate body, great vitality on the palate. Overall, a wonderful pils. I could drink this all day.

1,5L PET milked fresh from the Kout teat by mowbeer, logistics by motelpogo, na zdraví dear Sirs. Pours a hazey deep yellow, mirroring a gloriously muddy bread&cereal malt and upfront yeast profile. Thick palate, almost chewy doughiness, made enjoyable by amped Saaz: tangerine zest, strawy grass, dven some light woody notes, a pervasive mineral twang. Glad I had a full Dobra Voda bottle and some peace & quiet to gauge and appreciate this unfiltered Old-World character onslaught.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Churchkey - Washington, DC. I had this side by side with the 10 and was amazed at how different they were. The 10 so enamoring, with this being a little more lifeless, with a harsh, almost sour, but more like twangy harsh minerals to it. Not as well defined, a little more muddy and wandering. Less satisfying to palate in the finish. The slight more alcohol isn’t met by a better body for balance. I almost want to say that this keg is a little past peak.
