4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tapped in Kulovy Blesk restaurace. Probably not the very impressive aroma of all Matushka’s beers, but the appearance is just classic. Head like in a schoolbooks, very light but prober amber body color. Taste of rich hopps with a bit of fruits and malts. The finish is a bit complex to analyze actually - a lot of interesting notes, including grapes, citrus, wheat, malts and hopps.

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.
