2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber pour with a huge creamy head that hangs around for a while. Aroma of copper and caramel. Mouth is thin. Overall this is pretty one note but much more complex than all the Pilseners in this area of CZ.

Bottle. Amber with a rather small head. Toasted malt and Saaz hops through the nose, maybe also a subtle nuttiness. Tastewise it’s a really nice, toasted Czech pils - simple, solid bodied, quite bitter, with a malt and hops driven flavour. Nice one.

17/01 0.33 l bottle brought from Czech Rep. It poured dark golden, reddish hued body with medium sized head. Caramel aroma, touched with hops. Bitter flavor, dominated by grass and hay hops with sweet caramel and overripe fruit malt being there as well, giving an alcoholic feel. Medium bodied with sharp, almost unpleasant flavor, and alcoholic as well, no matter of such low ABV. Couldn’t like it too much.
