3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at Czech Beer Fest 2012. American style IPA. It’s good - but overall I feel like Czech brewers are ’playing’ with the IPA style, and aren’t there yet. This is lager country and ales are still new. Flavor is almost classic IPA, but has some of that sweetness I’ve seen with other Czech lagers.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Actually brewed at Hotel Pivovarská Bašta in Vrchlabí Small, relatively stable amberish head over orange-amber beer. End of bottle solid yeast. Very flowery nose, roses, lilies, further dry grass as well as sweet caramel. Bitter, flowery, spiced citrus flavours, slightly resiny. No hints at sweetness in the flavour, yet not unbalanced. Retronasal pure hopoil. Medium bodied, quite slick, faintly oily. Nice, and rather original APA. Not too strong, balanced, easily drinkable. Good work, Honza!

From the bottle. Not bad. Nice golden colour, hoppy and citrusy aroma, decent Sweet and fizzy grapefruity taste. Liked it but it’s certainly not in the elite league of Czech versions of American beers.

Klobouk dolu! Great czech stuff…

Cesky pivni festival, Nota Bene, tocene. Intenzitou chute a vune uz me pripomina spis ipu. Ovsem ma mene alkoholu. Typicka citrusova chut a vune jde v tomto pripade do grepu, coz me vyhovuje, ale lidem kteri nemaji radi grep to dost vadilo.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2012 (draught @ several beer festivals in Prague) Amber colour, hazy, with a creamy head. Looks very appealing to me. Aroma of citrus/lemon peel, tropical fruit (mango, passion fruit). Nice toasted malty notes. Medium (not over the top) bitterness, minimal sweetness. Light to medium body. Less alcohol than an IPA, but very aromatic - therefore very drinkable. You should see the large satisfied grin on my face! [Update: I have had this one again a few times since my first rating, liked it even better, and miss it already. Reason enough to bump up my rating].
