3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Glass bottle. The color is nice golden and a bit brown. head is a bit creamy, a bit soapy. aroma is hoppy, a bit sour, fresh, small hints of malt. The taste is awesome! hoppy, bitter, refreshing! My type of a bitter beer! easy to drink. The bitterness does not last long which is good. Compared to the never ending bitterness of flying monkey’s atomic ipa. I prefer such mild short bitterness. carbonation is medium, for me it is ideal. overall a tasty bitter beer.

Bottle. Clear Amber with a good White head. Densely hoppy brew. There’s some peachy, grapey notes coming through with a pronounced bitterness throughout. The aroma is impressively hoppy. Nice to see in an ESB.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Pivni Rozmanitost. Amber colour, poured a small head, dissipating surprisingly quickly. Fizzier than expected. Mild toffee aroma with a hint of citrus. Mildly hoppy, malty taste hints of butter, dry finish. Reasonably bitter throughout. Became more smooth on second glass. Very drinkable, but not Matuska at their best.

Fra fat pĺ Kulovy Blesk, Praha 24 Okt 12. Gyldenbrun. Litt uklar. OK tett skum som varer. Forsiktig grapefruktaroma. Smaken litt fruktig. Svakt třrr syrlig ettersmak. Bra - men ingen typisk ESB.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Kulovy Blesk, Prague. Aroma of pale malt with some toffee, all dominated by an intercontinental mix of hops. Light citrus and peach on the US-side and floral notes on the UK-side. Soft mouthfeel, rather full body, malty-fruity taste with an English-style, earthy and peppery bitterness. Quaffable and really good one!
