3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l at the Mister Sörözö in Budapest.
Poured a clear yellow-golden body with a medium sized white head that went away at a medium pace. Typical nose for a microbrew from this area, hoppy, slightly dusty, finely grainy. Well hopped, herbal, if a bit too light, slightly soapy.Filtering was a mistake I reckon.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line:
Crisp, biscuity pils malts work in tandem with spicy, diplomatic Saaz-like hops in this balanced and fresh lager of Czech inspiration.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam draws a nice collar around the clear gold.
-Carbonation is prickly and active.
-The hops offer spicy, herbal notes with citrusy angles, providing sufficient bitterness.
-This is perfectly clean and very quaffable.
On tap at the brewpub.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from draught at Mister Sörház. Clear yellow colour with creamy head. Good malty, hay-ish aroma with grassy hops. Very clean and crisp in flavour and totally free from dms. Pretty low on hops in flavour, with moderate bitterness but still more pronounced than in the average Hungarian pale lagers. Great thirst quencher!

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Inevitably among the best in Hungary! Although it is difficult to buy a bottle of this one, we have to travel to the south of the country to find. For me it is sweet and it has a special character.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2007 You can drink it only draught. A good beer from a microbrew. The beer has a golden colour with a fine head, the taste is sweety and malty. I miss a little carbonation, but not a big problem.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub. An excellent pale brew, very malty in aroma and flavour. Has a taste of sweetish, full maltiness, leading to a creamy, grainy finish with some bitter hops and then a lasting nutty sweetness balanced with some bitterness. Very good indeed, especially for Budapest!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2005 Draught at the brewpub. Golden with creamy head. Distinct malt aroma. Some hay-like hops over a softly malty body with generous malt sweetness. The body is fairly light and the mouthfeel short. Crisp finish with some salty bitterness. Refreshing.
