2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Okay, before anything else; I am not entirely certain that I am rating the right beer. The Litovel in front of me Does not have the words ’Lager Hell’ on it anywhere, instead it has something like ’Premium Pivo Svelty Lezak’. Everything else looks pretty much the same, so lets roll with it. Poured into my trusty Duvel Tulip. It looks like a lager, which is to say indistinguishable from a certain bodily function, though it does have a deeper golden colour to it. Head is half a finger of fizzy white quickly dissipating to a light lacing. Scent is faint, somewhat sweet with the familiar slightly skunky smell of Czech hops. Taste is mild, sweet, slightly bready as Lagers usually are but has a nicer balance with the hops than any of the common lagers on this side of the world have. Carbonation is nice for the style, mouthfeel is actually fairly rich for a pilsener. Overall, it is an easy-drinking beer that would be quite refreshing on a very hot day, but compared to my usual fare it might as well be water.

Beer pours out of the bottle in a clear golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and straw. Taste of hops, straw, light malt, honey and barley. Very dull and easy going finish, yet nothing that nice.

Clear golden with short frothy head. Grainy aroma is bit metallic and mild. Light to medium body, grainy flavor, earthy, dry and slightly bitter, bit harsh finish. Lacks butter and those nice Czech nuances. Is bit dull.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2013 Served in a straight branded glass at the Tredegar in Mile End. Faint sweet malt aroma, little hop. Looks like a duck, talks like a duck, though a faintly metallic one at that.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Goldenes Lager mit feiner Blume. Blumiges, malzaromatisches Aroma. Sanfter Antrunk, leicht nach Honig. Das Malz übernimmt mit blumigen Akzenten das Zepter, der aromatische Hopfen ist im Abgang etwas zu verhalten. Fazit: Typisch böhmisches Lager, ausgewogen und unendlich süffig!

grass, herbs, citrus, bread, golden, clear, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, light body, thin feel, average carbonation, astringent, bitter, long finish
Dark golden pour with fast rising white head. Foam falls quickly releasing aromas of green grass, herbal and citrus mixed with a bit of doughy bread. Taste is medium bitterness with slight sourness, and a bit of malt sweetness remaining in the background. Medium carbonation with a thin, watery, but clean mouthfeel. Crisp astringency and persisting light bitterness at the end.

See through yellow pilsner with a big white head and a luring farty pilsner aroma. Sweet and quite buttery flavor with mild bitterness from the hops. Pretty straight forward pilsner. Balanced and good. A nice and refreshing drink for the times you don’t want anything too adventurous.
