4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Golden, fluffy white head. Nose is fresh malts, bread, grass, musk, lemon and a touch of funk, almost gueuze-like. Taste is super juicy fruits, lemon, grassy hops, more juiciness at the end and big fresh saaz hops linger after the dry bitter finish. Very crisp clean mouthfeel. Never expected to be blown away by a pilsner.

Fat. Far i Hatten, Malmö. Gyllengul öl med kraftigt vitt skum som lämnar fantastiska skumgardiner pĺ glaset. Doft av bröd, spannmĺl, gräs och lätta citrustoner. Samma ĺterkommer i smaken. En riktigt bra tjeck.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at U Slovanske Lipy (02/03/13). Nefiltrovanoe. Rather clear gold pour, very pretty rocky white head, light lacing. Very aromatic, crisp fresh bready grain, baguette crust but with a ton of very grassy saaz in there as well, ever so slight metallic note. Taste is grainy upfront, fresh bread crust, herbal and dry finish, tea herbal finish. Excellent, but not quite as the greats I had on this trip.

On tap at Avenue Pub. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thick white head. Aroma of light fruits, bready malt, hint of skunk, peppery spices. Flavor of honey, sweet bready malt, with sweetness in the finish. A bit odd but it’s pretty decent and drinkable.

this for me was as close to Bohemian lager perfection as I have ever experienced, pouring a dark golden with a tight rocky head. In the mouth it was sheer delight of bready malt and that lemony/hay thing that just screams Saaz., I am not sure I have ever enjoyed a pint of bottom-fermented beer so much.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Churchkey. Rating #5200! On tap as "Koutska 12° (Unfiltered/ Unpasteurized)" so I think this rating belongs here as raw krausen was probably not added to the keg here- no heavy yeast in suspension haze. Pours a clearish, low haze, brilliant bright orange, rocky white head. Perfect sheets of white lacing on both full pours I had. Nose is soft valencia orange, sweet peach, butterscotch, pear, mild apple. Taste is spicy, big Saaz hops, sharp metallic notes at first. After warming the harsh metallic twang is gone and replaced by super herbal hoppiness, peach cobbler, crackery pale malt, dried orange. Body is quenching, refreshing, not sticky, not watery. Wow. This is what I needed. 7/5/9/5/16=4.2
