Tap @ Na Parkanu, Plzen.
Pours a beautiful, clear amber with an impressive, creamy, lightly yellowish head. Super duration with good lacing. Aroma is rather dry, has some cardboard off-flavours, but also good grassy hops and pleasant caramel. Great creamy mouthfeel, lowish carbonation. Flavour is clean and crisp, great subdued caramel notes and a good, present and obvious hops profile. Extremely drinkable.

On tap at U Salzmannu, Plzen, 500ml. Amber with cream head. Sweet malty beer with hints of malt vinegar. Also sweet and fruity and a hint of alcohol. A little pongy cooked vegetable on the nose, cabbagey. It’s ok.

Draught at Na Parkanu, Plzen.
Pale amber coloured, small off white head, light caramel nose. A way too sweet malty, caramelly and light fruity taste with touch of alcohol in the finish. Easy going but one dimensional beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Zach’s pub, Plzen. Beautiful amber colour. Some ashtray, but decent malts, some sweetness. I rather like this. Reminds me of a session bitter. Slight bitterness on end. Bit of toffee. Just this toastiness that I like.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From tap at the Marriot hotel in Plzen. Pours clear and golden deep orange to amber with a slowly diminishing light tan head. Aroma is solid breadish with a mild spice accent. Flavour starts dry and breadish, light fruity too. Turns slowly towards a more spiced and bitter flavour but not loosing the breadish dry flavours. Ends malt flavoured with a bit of sweetnes showing through.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2008 Draught at Na Parkánu, Pilsen. Clear amber, small head. Light caramelly nose with vague notes of grass. Medium bodied with clean rounded bld mouthfeel. Raw and clumsy, simple and dull. Faint resiny finish. Very mediocre in comparison to the Pilsner Urquell Kvanicový they also serve here.

RBESG, on tap at na Parkanu, alongside (iirc) Per, Barak and Patrik.This one belonged to Per I think so a thanks goes to him. Poured an amber-red body with an off white head. Caramel and dust in the nose. Mollases?. Somewhat watery caramelly taste, chewy hops near the end but not all that big. Ok, nothing else.
