2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep copper-golden color, active carbonation, good cloudy off-white head. Berryish woody hoppy nose. Nutty-woody malt backbone with slightly buttery, woody hoppy and citrusy notes. Feels lifeless despite of extra carbonation. I am swimming against the stream with this one.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
25/07/2011 Open Baladin Roma (tap). Dorata intensa, limpida, con un bel cappello di morbidissima schiuma bianca. Al naso spicca un bellissimo aroma di malto, con morbide note floreali ed erbacee. In bocca č meravigliosamente equilibrata, malto, caramello e un bel finale amaro, luppolato erbaceo, secco e rinfrescante. Il trionfo della bevibilitŕ, dell’equilibrio e dell’eleganza. Corpo medio, carbonazione leggera. Grandissima pils, capolavoro assoluto.

4.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.
