Draught @ Slovanske Lipy. I loved the 10 from the Kout brewery and had to taste this one aswell. I was not dissapointed. This is a very rich and deep pilsener. Very fruity. Lots of orange and dried apricot notes. Heavier than the 10, but not too heavy to be super drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at Kittys, Helsinki, 20110715) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grass, herbalness, grain and mildly butter. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, fruitiness, herbalness, grain, mildly sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was grassy and bitter. A really tasty Czech pils. Perhaps would be even better when fresher and unfiltered.

Draught @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere
Aroma is fresh and mild and has hints of butterish malt. and herbs. Refrreshing taste lacks the typical butter aroma in czech pilseners. It has some grassy hops and hints of herbs. Balanced and good pilsener that could have some more character though.

Draught @ Oluthuone Rotterdam, Helsinki
Pours clear with golden color and a smooth head. Aroma has notes of grass, pine and spices. Taste is extremely smooth with notes of malts, fruits and slightly hops. Nice smooth finish. Great, well balanced pilsner, but could’ve used some more hops and bitterness.

On draught at Open Baladin Rome. Pours a clear gold color with a sod lasting white head. slight hoppy aroma. Medium body. Crisp hop flavor and mellow bitterness is dulled by a honey-like flavor and slight sulfury notes. Fairly clean, and not slinky like the local botled

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught, at U Slovanské Lípy, Prague. Maybe is was because I had it on a very hot, sunny day after lots of walking, but I found this even better than the unfiltered version. Pretty dark gold-almost amber, with a pillowy head. Grassz hop aroma, some citrus, rich malts. Lovely hop flavor with great bitterness--though not too much--with delicious, soft, biscuity malts and cereals and a touch of honey. Low carbonation, smooth, full yet light, crisp and super refreshing. Perfect.
