hrabren (940) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 13, 2016
Tasting at Višnja 666’s place. Shared with Goran, Višnja and Marko. Thanks Višnja for bringing this from Prague! Big bottle. Clear light golden, small off-white head. Elderberry, floral and citrus aromas. Light dry with light bitter finish. Light body, medium carbonation, watery texture, light finish. Nice aroma, a little to carbonated. Should be an American Session Pale Ale, otherwise it is to light and in any case it lacks character.

Marko (4991) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 11, 2016
Thanks Višnja & Goran! Shared with Hrabren and them. Pale yellow-golden body with a small white head. Elderflower aroma, herbal, light dry maltiness, not bad but a bit subdued. Citric herbal notes in the taste, medium herbal bitterness, light elder again. Overcarbonated yet again, but generally a good beer, it’s exactly what it says it is, a 9° APA. And likely the best 9° beer ever made in ČR.

UjoKlobasa (663) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 26, 2016
On tap. Bright golden color, clear liquid, white head. Smell of spice and citrus. Aroma of bread and citrus. Problem is the taste, which is watery and bland. Good for what it is (9°), but not pleasant at all.

american8oy (8) - - AUG 19, 2016 does not count
Na vycape v Lifehouse Nitra. Slamena farba, biela hustejsia pena celkom drzi, kruzkuje. Vona dost slaba, citit citrusy, neviem to presne identifikovat. Chut je kamen urazu. Nevyrazna, telo skoro prazdne citit citrusy jemne. Najviac asi citron, trosku mozno grep. Horkost slabsia, na APU vsak fajn. Celkovo ma toto pivo nepresvedcilo, hlavne kvoli standardu, na ktory som pri Matuskovi zvyknuty.

LakatosKE (176) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 12, 2016
tap in komin. Light golden with white long lasting head. Aroma is floral, citrus - grapefruit and tangerines. Taste is malty, bready, with lots of fruits. Oily texture, higher carbonation. Refreshing and surprisingly full for such low plato.

Scopey (12712) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2016 Keg at GBBF 2016. It pours clear yellow - gold with a medium white head. The aroma is fresh, bready, green, grass, creamy, icing sugar, cucumber and herbs. The taste is crisp, dry, cracker, grass, mineral water, lemon rind, straw and foamy soda water with a firmly dry finish. Light - medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Simple, crisp and light - drinks easy.

Cristobal37 (816) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 5, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2016 Thanks Kapusil!! Very pale yella with big foamy head. Fresh flowery fruity aroma. Wet bitterness a really nicely hopped beer. Nice cereal maltiness, really balanced. Tastes like a hop intensive czech pils. Finish is grains and nice mild bitterness. A really sessionable beer (only 3.8%!). Great find.
