Tapped at Hostinec Richtar Jakub in Bratislava/Slovakia. Hoppy aroma, überhoppy taste for a lager, nice copper color, stable creamy head. This tasty beer is excellent! A nice sipper for colder days.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours nice cloudy golden liquid with big frothy, but quickly disappearing head. Aroma is not like an ordinary lager - lot of fruitiness, also some pine, but typical bready line is present, too. Taste is little bit unexpected, starts sweet, but became very bitter. Beer has a full body, thick texture (navy lager) and average carbonation. Ends with long dry finish. Probably best lager for me, since I’m not so educated in this genre.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Slightly over Golden with a dense white head. Aroma is tremendous. Like Saaz diluting juice and bread dough. The flavour initially pays out on the promise of the aroma but then gives way to a fairly rampant bitterness. As the bottle progresses, it grows less charming. Nice enough and a break from the norm.

on tap @ zelena kocka pivarium, Brno. nice amber appearence with white head which stays. aroma is grass, pine and bready. a bit of a come down after tasting their IPA. Taste is suprisingly different. Now comes through the hops which seem hidden in the aroma. medium body. slighly bitter but nice soft hop aromas coming thorugh. seems like they again have used american hops in this lager/pils which is very different and great.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
Earthy, leafy hops are balanced out by silky honeyed malts while orange-y fruitiness adds depth to this polished brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam floats atop the misty amber.
-This tastes and feels like a well tendered cask ESB.
-Drinkability is quite high despite the hoppy intensity.
-Mouthfeel is healthy ; not dry, but not too sweet either.
On tap at Nota Bene, Praha.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Nota Bene Restaurant (01/03/13). Slightly hazy gold pour, white head. Aroma is really fruity, hops are peachy turn earthy turn leafy, lots of vegetal aromas, dank, leafy, fruity english malt/yeast. Taste is bitter, fruity, resinous vegetal finish. Definitely a new world style, really a hybrid of several things, didn’t really get any pils character here. Not bad, but I prefer their IPAs by a mile and a half.

Pale yellow color with big white head. Aroma of malts, diacetyl, honey notes as well. Taste is light bitter then light to medium sweet and the end is dry and bitter. Good balance. Medium body, oily texture, avarage carbonation. Pretty nice beer.
