COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Původně vychází z GB Pale Ale. Pokusili jsme se vytvořit letní pivo, které skloubí výrazné aroma Zlaté rakety a pitelnost Californie. Zároveň si zachová přiměřenou plnost a sílu, která je vhodná pro teplé letní večery. Použili jsme chmel Galaxy nabitý australským sluncem, který dodává s chmelem Citra výrazné aroma po tropickém ovoci. Pro hořkost piva byl použit americký chmel Apollo (17,7% alpha hořkých kyselin, nejsilnější chmel zatím použitý v našem pivovaře).

0,33 bottle purchased in Prague and consumed in Kosovo. Huge thanks to Jacquie, who has "smuggled" it. It pours pale golden colour, cloudy, oily texture, sediments in the glass, fantastic big white head. Impressive nose: predominant citrus notes, residual notes of fresh summer fruits and orange juice. Mouth: terrific! Compact blast of round (tough bitter) malts, slightly sweet feel of citrus juice, light grassy aftertaste. Impressive beer! Give me a 24 box of this! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0.75l at 2+KK Restaurant, Prague, thanks Nikola! Really sad about probably losing my notes for all these Matuškas forever. In any case, this beauty started off with a superb, fruity, aromatic hopiness, like one would expect, tropical perhaps, citric, but, in this case, backed with a huge amount of bitterness, again, as expected. This is impressive stuff in any case. Liked it slightly less than the California in a way, but I’d gladly have it again.. and again... and again...

Fluxing (349) - POLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Kolor zloty, lekko opalizujace. Piana opada do ciaglej warstwy i lekko oblepia szklo. W aromacie zboza, lekki karmel i calkiem intensywny amerykanski chmiel, ogolnie slodki aromat. W odczuciu nisko wysycone, gladkie, ale balans jest lekko przesuniety w strone slodowosci. W smaku zbozowe, karmelowe, przyjemny smak zywicznego chmielu. Niestety goryczka mimo iz nie jest bardzo intensywna, jest nieprzyjemnie drapiaca i zalegajaca.

Flaska delad med @msbrindbergs, stort tack! Dimmig bärnstensfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Doftar Surjästfruktigt pĺ ett bra sätt. Bra humlekaraktär med tydlig beska. Riktigt bra apa!

MSBrindbergs (409) - Solna, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014
Flaska från Base Camp, Prag, Tjeckien. Klar mörkgul vätska med vitt skum. Doftar fräsch typisk apa, grape och gött! Fräsch sötma med klassisk apa-beska. Är en apa-torsk på sistone märker jag... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Out of bottle. Good example of Matuska’s know-how. Medium body well accompanied with nice fruity bitterness to extend the finish.

Świetne piwo. Fajny aromat amerykańskich chmieli. W wyglądzie bursztyn, ale mało mętny, a piana za to obfita o trzyma.się całkiem długo. W smaku rewelacja. Grejpfrutowa goryczka i przyzwoita reszta. Polecam!

BlackHaddock (4009) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2014
2nd Oct 2014, 0.75 litre bottle shared with the wife in Beergeek, Prague. BBD 16th Nov 2014. Light amber with a slight haze and white head. The aroma was both grainy and citrusy, with tangerine and grapefruit notes coming through. Taste leans towards the citrus hop side and ends fairly bitter. My first beer from this brewery, but one I came to enjoy very much while visiting Prague.

Keg at GBBF ’14, day 2, 13/08/14. Almost clear golden with an exquisite off white head that has impeccable retention qualities - a real looker! Nose is juicy hops, orange pith, pine linger, light grapefruit, toasted bread, melon, freshly cut grass. Taste comprises juicy hops, mandarin, light pine, toasted malt, citric peel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation - massaging, perfectly pitched, great drinkability with hop bitterness in the close. Great APA, looks and feels amazing and doesn’t disappoint at the business end either. Best beer of GBBF ’14 for me!
