2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Canned) Clear, paleish golden with a minimal but lacy head. Mild, neutral-malty, cowdung-earthy and fishy, somewhat hoppy aroma. Buttery-grassy-hoppy, neutral-malty flavor with toffee notes. Somewhat aromatic-hoppy, slightly astringent finish. Light to medium-bodied, very carbonated palate. Hoppy enough to be classified as a pilsener. The style would be something between North-German and Czech. Quite smooth and drinkable, although a bit raw.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly orange tinted. A little malty with a spicy hop finish. This is a decent Bohemian-style pilsner, certainly not a "pale lager"

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark gold with aroma of cooked peas. The scent also has a little bit of honey. The taste has some metallic carrots. There are also some flowery hop notes coming through. Surprisingly, this has some character. Fairly nice.

A bad beer. A beer brewn with no respect for the consumers or beer for a complete different market. ;-)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Considering it’s mountainous country of origin, this one turned out to be quite a thirst quencher. Tasted from the bottle and poured into a stem glass. Crystal clear pale-gold body with a high amount of fine carbonation holding up a decent tight white head. Slightly earthy aroma with a lot of resinous spicy and grassy hops coming through, quite clean. Hops dominate the palate, grassy, sour and floral, very light in body and flavour with a short bitter quenching swallow and little length. A little grain became noticeable after I had downed half of it but everything remained tightly in the background. Passable light lager, nothing spectacular.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Somewhat yeasty, fruity aroma. Quite a dry taste with some hints of fruitiness and flowery hops. This beer was certainly interesting given that I expected it to be nothing more than a normal crappy international lager. Therefore a pleasant suprise, though if I´d compare it to pilsner or real premium lagers this will do not so well.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Pale golden colour, but long lasting foamy layer; slightly hoppy nose, combined with some hints of unmalted barley; initial malty sweetness switches over to a light bitter flavour and a short bitter aftertaste; in some qualites similar to czech Lagers; nothing special, but quite well drinkable.
