sputnikus (96) - Brno, - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle. Hazy orange colored ale with stable white head. Citruses in aroma, especially grapefruit, also some forest woods. Hops sweetness and bitterness result in perfectly harmonic taste. Full body with oily texture and average carbonation. Long, bitter finish. Another really good beer from Matuška.

Saeglopur (1730) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 7, 2016
750 ml bottle bb 28.03.16, acquired by Werckmeister for me, thanks!
Amber, moderate hazy body, with a big, stable, fluffy, lacing, white head.
Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, orange zest, passion fruit, pineapple, biscuit.
Taste follows this, with some more alcohol and subtle pine.
Medium, a bit creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes alcohol warming, bitter, a bit dry, zesty, citric, fruity, a bit piney.

Really tasty. Very crisp, fresh and fruity, apart from some alcohol warmth also pretty easy for the ABV. Really well balanced, with the right amount of malt body. Overall not the most extraordinary style example, but just how I like it and propably the best Czech IPA I’ve had so far.

McNeillR (2232) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2016
Fairly light golden, clear and even spaced lacing from a decent filmy ringed head. Nose is grassy, big melon syrup and a telling malt buzz. Initial taste is a rich punchy sherbert lemon and brassy sweetness. Carbonation is fairly soft, smooth mouthfeel. Finishes a bready sweet puff and lingers long melony an pineapple again.
