GT2 (8755) - San Diego County, California, USA - FEB 13, 2013
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

Holmen2 (1232) - NORWAY - DEC 26, 2014
1,5 litre plastic bottle shared with JMD 26.12.14. Foamy and persistent off-white head and lacing. Fine, and slightly spicy, aroma and taste of Czech hops. Well balanced with malt. Bitterness lingering on in aftertaste. Very high drinkability.

magicmn (21) - Moscow, RUSSIA - DEC 24, 2014
Clear golden colour, pleasant smell of grass, malt and some wild flowers too. Good crisp bitterness with taste of superb bouquet of czech premium hops. Almost perfect balance with medium sweet enough bread body. Not worse then prazdroj!

Lore (1230) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 9, 2014
clear darker golden colour, huge white head; aroma of herbal-floral hoppy notes, some grass, caramel notes and hints of overripe fruits; taste of very well balanced malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness with some minimal cardboard notes; great carbonation; excellent Czech pilsner

Ragnampiza (528) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - OCT 3, 2014
500 ml on tap at Wench Pub. Dark gold, pretty clear, with a huge, creamy, fluffy and persistent off white head. The nose is dominated by papery/wet cardboard notes, but there is a pleasent honey, toffee and caramel malts presence. A hint of fresh herbs too. Smooth and easy drinking, more sweet than bitter. Ridicolously clean and refreshing. Grassy, noble hop like finish. Mild peppery edge. Soft to average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. Very curious to try it fresh and as close as possible as the brewery. Still, great pils.

blipp (6359) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Draft a Proletariat. Pours gold with a white head. Lightly sweet malty base, with some bready and biscuity notes, faint balancing grassy bitterness, and a quick finish with additional hints of sweet malts. Sharp and lively, but not as fresh and bright as I’d hoped. Certainly good, but a bit underwhelming.

Jamedra (565) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 10, 2014
PET láhev 1500 ml. Aroma je lehce kvasnicové s jemným chmelovým nádechem. Pěna je jasně bílá, jemná, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je pomerančová a silně kalná. Chuť je velmi výrazná, silně kvasnicová s jemným ovocným nádechem, finiš je středně hořký a držící. V ústech pivo působí mohutně, má silnější říz a je hůře pitelné. jedná se o velmi zajímavý ležák, mohutné, výrazné chuti, i přes to jsem čekal trochu víc, ale rozhodně to není žádné zklamání.
