Co platilo o desítce, to platí o dvanáctce. Nuda nuda, šeď šeď. Navíc kapánek medová příchuť. Točené ve Frýdlantu.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle thanks to Svans Hćrge. Hazy orange with a medium dense white head. Aroma of fresh leaves, nectar and a little sour mold. Flavor is quite sour, citrus and sour herbs with fresh grassy leavy bitterness and a minor honey sweetness. Might be a bit off

Medved is hoppy dry pilsener with abmer clear color and nice white head. Pleasant, almost ale-ish palate gives it nice finish. Well done beer and from now one of my favourite czech pilseners.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Zamecka Konirna in Vrchlabi:
Honey sweetness, raw grain and a little mint battle off the minerals. Peppery citrus fruit babble underneath, but without much consequence.
Agreeable, slick honeyed malt sweetness is prevalent here, but all remains watery and too easy for my tastes. Very low on the hops, and somewhat boring compared to the kvasnicovy version. A little fizzy in the end, with citrusy tartness, this is a disappointing pils for a Czech brewpub.
A painting stripped down of some of its best attributes.
