On tap at Armsby for Zwanze day. This is the second time Ive had a Pilsner that has blown me away (the first was Uprights Pils). Light toasty herbal spicy aroma. Taste is really crisp clean noble hops with great light biscuit malts. Fantastic.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
21/07 Grand Tasting, tap at Rychtar Jakub, Bratislava during RBESG GT. I was in doubt should I even rate it, as obviously it was not in its meant shape, but as I did with all such beers so far, I’ll rerate ASAP. Anyway, it had clear golden body with small head. Buttery aroma, popcorn, hay. Lot of yeast in its flavor, butter all the way around, messed up with nice Bohemian herbal hops. Medium bodied with long, acidic finish. It showed some of its qualities and it was very drinkable, but whether is the batch or the storage, it needs a rerate!

Tap at Hostinec Richtar Jakub. Medium white head. Clear golden colour. Aroma malt, some hops. Taste medium bitter, light sour. Pretty average, nothing special. Probably need to revisit this in the future, fell well below the expectations.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
RBESG ’12, Bratislava. Grand Tasting at Richtar Jakub. Tap. This must’ve been a bad batch, or there’s something wrong with RJ’s pipes. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma is light buttery, light malty, leaves. Flavour is light malty, buttery, light floral, light bitter grassy finish. Light bodied. There were quite some things off here.

Bottle @ RBESG Grand Tasting 2012. Golden appearance with a white head. Buttery toffee, straw aroma. Watery, pale grainy, butterscotch flavor. I think this batch got fucked up.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 Golden misty and white head. Classic European hops, pilsner yeasty. Quite bitter, long dry bitter aftertaste. My original rating was pour but it’s a great pilsner, cheap and Flavourful. Really nice and easy to drink all night, despite the spritzy carbonation. (Originally drank in Czech Republic, current rating in Les Trois 8)
